Thrifting by Jeni Baker
Thrifting, a photo by Jeni Baker on Flickr.
Hi There! Earlier this week I shared the above photo of my recent thrifting finds! I thought it might be fun to share with you a few of the things that didn't come home with me! So, would you like to take a trip to a few antique shops? Let's go!

How cute are these tiny tupperwares? They look like mini cake carriers! Maybe for cupcakes?

Loved this vintage quilt top, so many cool prints.

Sometimes the packaging is more interesting than the item itself! Take my word for it, the shoes weren't anything too special!

*Sigh*, I really wanted to come home with these Pyrex bowls! But, they were too expensive!

This little condiment set kills me.  It's so little!

Another thing I wish I could have brought home! One of Strawberry Shortcake's friends, new in the box!

I have a thing at the moment for vintage tins.  I don't know what it is, I can't get enough of them!

Really liked the plaid print on this vanity chair.  It was super bright! Wouldn't mind bringing that phone home either!

Yep, love teak and stainless steel together.  Two great serving pieces!

Last but certainly not least, it was REALLY hard not to bring this cathedral window quilt home with me.  Doesn't it feel so modern? I spent a long time looking at it! :)

I hope that was fun! Next time I'll share some thrift store shots, I'm usually going in and out of thrift stores so quickly, I forgot to take any photos!

Happy Thrifting!

Oh my that cathedral window quilt would have been hard to leave behind. But the bowl you did bring home is fabulous!

What a lot of fun things you saw! LOL...that red phone looks just like the one my parents had from before I was born until I was grown.....I think it is in their basement now.

I had one of those Tupperware containers when I was a kid! I put the handle on the other way and used it to pick berries!

You have strong willpower to leave those all sitting on the shelf!

Those antique shops are awesome! My local shops aren't near that exciting, you have to search and search for the cool things!

Elsa said...

Wherever do you live? I want to come and go thrift shopping with you!

Thanks!

I bought the tupperware cake carrier close to 30 years ago, I believe. It was supposed to be for a child...maybe to go with a easy bake oven. My father cut down a couple of 1 lb coffee cans so I could bake a tiny two layer cake for the kids 1st birthdays. It became a tradition in our family that my kids and all the nieces and nephewes got their own decorated cake delivered in the little tupperware cake carrier. Fun memories. Lily

Your thrift stores seem to have much cooler stuff than mine do. Maybe I'm too far south.

Geez, I just want to follow along behind you and snatch up all the things you don't take home, lol. My grandparents actually still have (and use) that red phone. And that stool it's sitting on. sigh. I'll be dreaming about it tonight. :)

Great finds you've got there. They look cool than those we can buy in stores nowadays. Thrift stores are the place to be if you want to find vintage stuffs and the like.

Looks like you know some great places to shop! :D
Are you considering selling the Finel bowl?

If I could find stuff like this I might be willing to actually enter a thrift shop :)

The Tupperware Mini Cake Taker is part of a child's set they don't sell anymore. They have a new set right now that has another one identical to that but with designs to match the rest of the little set.

Those were really popular back when I was a Tupperware manager years ago. All my friends ordered one for their little girls.

Those Pyrex bowls and that chair just might have come home with me, depending on just how expensive they were.

It would have been super hard for me to not come home with that plaid chair or cathedral window quilt. Congrats to you for staying strong! You're making me want to go to some antique malls though......
