First off, welcome to my 57th follower, Amy from Lil Bits and Berries. Do check out her delightful blog http://lilbitsandberries.blogspot.com - I'll link it in the thrifty blog section to the right. Yesterday, it rained in Toronto, not to mention the ugly G20 protests going on downtown. It was pretty miserable all-round. No chance of a yard sale....My sister drove us out to the new Goodwill-by-the-pound. It's in an equally remote part part of Scarborough. There, I bought a large fishbowl, a beaded leather children's belt, two scarves, two toy cars, and a pile of books for $7. Later, we drove to the Goodwill retail outlet on Eglinton, near Kennedy. There, I bought the items you see above. Lise is not happy with Value Village these days. They're charging too much and she's right - what's with a 30% off sale? Thank heavens for Goodwill.
This Pyrex mixing bowl is about 24 cm in diameter. I love the colour. It cost $3.99.
Ta-da! Naturally, my sister got some jab in about buying more Pyrex. It was in such great condition, I just had to have it.Vintage pastel Tupperware coasters for $1.99. They remind me of Misty Mints.
I like the added drainage feature for sweaty summer glasses.
When I was a kid, I could never find my name on souvenirs. I love ghost towns and I've always dreamed of going to Arizona. For .99 I just had to have this mug.
I loved this vintage Oklahoma souvenir tea cup and saucer for $1.99. It was sitting on a shelf looking lonely and unloved.
I'll have to drinking out of tea cups more often.
