My $1 Finds

As much as I love thrift store shopping, I am so excited that it's yard sale season again. A city close to my dad had over 200 sales listed this weekend, so the boyfriend and I went up and out with him. We didn't hit nearly as many sales as we thought, but I think a lot of people didn't set up because it rained all day Friday and was supposed to rain all weekend. While I didn't get a whole lot, I did find two great pieces for $1 each.

An overpriced thrift store nearby had both the cracker and cookie jars last year for $10 each. I probably picked them up and put them down six times before leaving them behind. This one was only $1, and while it does have some marks on the front, I think I can get them off, and the gold is in great condition.

I also found this medium sized casserole for $1 at a completely different sale that was full of clothing and newer stuff. It didn't have a lid, but it's in good condition and frankly, I have way too many lids floating around in my cabinets already.

Hope everyone had a great weekend and found some good stuff! Head on over to my blog, Pyrex Picker, to check out some of my other weekend yard sale finds.

Great Find, Happy Girl!

I found a beautiful space saver lid on a Friday and then I got a grungy Musical Staff space saver the following Thursday. $3.79 is too sweet to believe and I got her all cleaned up. I'm down to only the Starburst now and I'm not holding my breath.

Seeing Pink!

Hi There!

It's been a REALLY long time since I've written.  I had to share with you what I found today and ask for help in identifying.  Today I stumbled on an Sr. Citizen neighborhood yard sale.  It was so fun to mill around and chat with the people.  It was like a social even for them.  One of my favorite parts of sales is talking to the people and getting the history of items.

Imagine my surprise when I spotted these on a long table in the carport of an adorable 80 something lady's yard.

The sweet lady told me that she won this set at bingo years ago.  I inquired about the lids...I have NEVER seen these metal lids that fit on the top like this.  She said it was great for making jello in and transporting it because of the lids.  Sure enough, the lids say Pyrex on them.  I know that these are Daisy Space Savers, I just wondered if anyone knows if this is always how they came with this lid, or is this some special promotional?

PS  I'll bet you are wondering how much she charged me for the set?  TEN WHOLE DOLLARS!!!!!!  It made my day.
