A Day of Thrifting

Kitchen Finds!, originally uploaded by jenib320.

Today my Mom and I went on an adventure out to Fort Myers to go thrifting. I mapped out 19 thrift stores for us to hit! A few were closed and a few we couldn't find, but we managed to go to 10 thrift stores and 4 antique stores! Not bad, and we were only gone for about 5 hours! We found a lot of great stuff! It was really exciting to go to all new thrift stores. I love my thrift haunts at home but it is nice to mix it up a bit!

Pyrex Finds!, originally uploaded by jenib320.

I found a lot of Pyrex which was very exciting! First I found the Sage Scroll oval casserole, which I am extremely excited about! This is the first time I've seen it in person and I love it. It is in really great condition and was only $6! Next I found the Pink Daisy space saver for $3.75 at a Salvation Army! It has some wear on the corners but the pattern is in great shape. I have never seen this size before, it's 1.25 quarts. Should be good for brownies! Next I found the Flamingo Pink round casserole. It was $12 at an antique store which is a bit much for me but it is pink, and I love the round casseroles. Plus, I'm on vacation! Haha. Finally I picked up the Verde oval casserole for $3. I realize now that I already have it but it is in perfect condition and this is my favorite size, so I think I'll still keep it! Not bad in the Pyrex department! :)

I accidently swore out loud when I saw these bowls. We were walking through this expensive antique store (I had just seen a Pyrex Primary bowl set for $78!) when I saw these I was telling my Mom that the one thing I would pay antique store price for was Catherineholm. Right as I said catherineholm I saw the bowls and screamed! What are the chances? They are a bit rough, they'll need some Bar Keeper's Friend when we get home, but I love them. I can't wait to find more! It was only $15 for the pair, they had no idea what they were, the tag was marked "vintage granite bowl pair".. interesting!

I am really loving this dress we picked up at Salvation Army. It was $4.50. It too is going to need some work. It's too big for me so we'll have to take it in, and there is a stain on the bottom hem but we'll make it work! And if not I'll just salvage the fabric and make something out of it. Love the pattern!

Saw a lot of white lotus bowls today but I already have too many. Found these plastic ones for $.25 each! They're funny, I like them.

Finally, picked up this fun little utentsil for $.50. My Mom has one really similar that was from Target a few years ago. This guy will be used often for stirring pasta :)

All in all it was a very successful day of thrifting. We didn't get lost, and we found lots of goodies!

  1. Amazing that you got all of those deals down there!!! I was in that area recently but I didn't get much because I didn't know how to bring it all back! I'm glad to see another person who loves thrifting!!
