Thrifted Treasures - August 18, 2012

Two big Thank yous to From My Front Porch to Yours and to Southern Hospitality for featuring my new chandy!   Both websites host wonderful thrift share parties and there is some awesome creativity to be found!

So!  I got my party button on and I am ready to party LOL!   I had amazing luck this weekend.  I'm so excited, I'm just going to get right to it :)

Look at this haul of teal glass gorgeousness!  The goblets are by Libby but I have no information about the plates or the two champagne flutes.

I think the flutes are mouth-blown glass and am wondering if the plates are from Pier One?  The Libby goblets were $4.25/set and the flutes and plates were 99 cents each.  They came from two different GWs in our neck of the woods.


Finally I scored pink Pyrex and in the gooseberry pattern.  The small pink dish and the green and white dishes came from the outlet and at 59c/pound, these were mere pennies :)   The large pink Pyrex came from Class & Trash for $18.

As a rule, I am a glass hound.  But this china is so beautiful, I may convert - LOL!

 Russell Wright by Knowles in the Queen Anne's Lace pattern, 1957-1962.  The dinner plates were 99c each (6); bread plates (6) 89c each; saucers (4) 79c each, and 4 tea cups at 59c each.  They are in great condition and I love the pearly finish with the gold accent!  This set came from the Rt. 3 GW.

Miller Studios vintage chalkware fish, 99c.  I have seen this particular one shown with babies but there were none with mine. I am going to frame her  (a shadow box frame I also got at GW for $4) and put her in my mermaid-themed bathroom :)

I d.i.e.d. when I saw these:

Holt Howard, atomic stars reindeer candle holders.  $1.19 each!  Rt. 3 GW.  They match these cuties I found at the outlet:

I don't have any deets about the sweet little glasses.  There isn't any mark on them but the etched stars called my name (really loud) so into the basket they went.  The vintage platter has this fabulous stamp on the back:

Super vintage coolness.  Both the platter and the glasses came from outlet so they were cheap cheap cheap! I'm linking up!
