Thrift Share Tuesday

Wow it's been a busy time around my house lately. I was at the beach for a week and then when I came home I had to get a new laptop and digital camera (my old one got swept away with the tides). This update actually has things I have gotten the last several weeks. I will try to get back to weekly updates now that I have a new laptop.

If you follow my blog you know I love my Pyrex. I picked up these pieces over the last several weeks.

Snowflake divided dish. Found at GW

1/2 of the Twin Server Set -- found at a thrift store at the beach

From my mama -- Desert Dawn Loaf

Fridgies -- lidded set found at SA. Single yellow fridgie from GW

Another Pyrex gift from my mama
I went to an Estate Sale two Fridays and get several very cool mid century pieces. The bookcase is actually two pieces of a mix and match credenza set. The family was selling each piece individually and the base seperate. I didn't have room for the base but I really wanted it and several of the other pieces but I settled for this combo.

I am still toying with what I want to display in it.

Tamara Aladin vase for Riihimaki Lasi

Ericofon -- LOVE this
The best find of the last several weeks is a very recent and much longed for thrift search. I am always looking for pieces of Le Creuset when I go to the thrifts and estate sales. I've never actually seen any that was in my price range, until now. I found these 3 pieces at the GW down from my office. I was THRILLED. They do need to be cleaned and the tape residue (gotta love them) removed. I ideally would have liked a different color but I'm still happy with them.

$16.06 for all 3

Zodiac Globe from GW
Thrifted from the best place on Earth -- my mom's house. I recently started buying vintage umbrellas and FINALLY talked my mother into giving me this fabulous umbrella stand. She's had it for years and I've been begging for it almost as long.
This last set was purchased at a local flea market from a vendor who is getting out of the antique business and sets up there every weekend until he unloads his house.
My oldest (and myself) are HUGE Supernatural fans so when I saw this emblem for an Impala it was a no brainer.
Small porcelain sign.
I'm joining the party at Apron Thrift Girl for Thrift Share Monday (a day late).


  1. Great finds! Of course I love all the Pyrex but the Le Creuset is a huge score!


  2. Love the Impala emblem..I am a Chevy girl :)

  3. That is an amazing deal on the Le Creuset! That little saucepot alone is probably worth $50 on ebay.

    I just blogged about my favourite vintage Le Creuset piece, I hope you have time to stop by!

  4. I just checked your piece out. I want one too. I commented. I haven't been able to part with much I've thrifted lately so I know the Le Creuset won't be going anywhere.

  5. Ohhh, the phone (fon), the fridgies (I always seem to find them without lids) and especially the bookcase are all fantastic!

  6. I am kind of partial to the bookcase. It is American of Martinsville. I am still regretting not buying the rest.

  7. Oh definitely, the pieces are complete keepers. I do look on Ebay for vintage Le Creuset every now and then but usually find it's too expensive!

    Thanks for visiting SixBalloons, I'm so glad you enjoyed it!
