Now I'm Back!

Sorry for the extended absence. I've been missing my thrifty vintage blogging life, but work has been far more overwhelming for some reason this year than in the past. I'm also tutoring three days a week after school, which is leaving me with less leisure time. Nevertheless, I plan to continue scouring Southern Ontario for treasures to share.
While visiting my folks in St. Catharines yesterday, I nipped into Goodwill, where I found this "old timey" salt/pepper/mustard set. It was in such good condition that I was left wondering if it was a reproduction. I'm still happy with it even if it is. The set cost $6.00.
I also bought a bag 'o random Christmas ornaments for $3.00.
These are what caught my eye. Plastic Made in Hong Kong choir boys singing outside a church. I loved that they were still in the packaging and had the Kmart price stickers on them.
There were two loose ones in the bag too. I love the cack-handed paint job on the mouths.
I also got these shiny tassel things.

I promise to be back much sooner next time.
Love Erin


  1. Nice to see you back! Love that condiment set.

  2. oooh, love those shiny tassels! They'll look great on a tree.

    I'm finding a hard time keeping on the blogwagon as well - but I'm committed to jumping back on starting now!

  3. Love those salt and pepper shakers with the mustard. I have never seen the mustard one before. Way cool find.

  4. So timely! I just heard Coeur de Pirate for the first time on my way home for holiday yesterday (and a short-lived band the head singer was in called Armistice). I think the song I heard was called Adieu. Thanks for sharing another one!

    And, great christmas treasures you found!
