I Have Been Out Hunting!

I have not been out shopping for vintage finds for sometime, so I was happy to be out with friends last week and over the weekend head out to find somethings my friends are wanting. Since these days I am watching my budget I am having fun buying for them ...but I did find some things for myself too!

I love the towel I found, the colors are great to display my Pyrex finds, so I think it will be a table runner at 1515. I think it also would make a awesome pillow. Do you see the price? $2.99!
And a great flour scoop with some red, $4.99
Blue primary color bowl, on sale for $4.00

I never pass up a miniature flower pot for the cottage.
This was $5
I found it at a new shop, that I will be going back to
because I found this that was on my friends wish list
Pink Daisy, divided casserole dish.

I already showed you my other Pyrex finds, but in case you missed them.
I splurged and bought myself the primary color
refrigerator set in great shape, complete for $40.
I also got one friend 5 Pyrex turquoise mugs, they were marked $3.50 but they were 90% off so I got all of them for $1.88.

I won't be going out for awhile, but in a couple of weeks I am headed to 1515 and my friends want me to work on their Pyrex "wish lists". So fun shopping for others and spending their money!

Every time I visit your blog I have to stop and stare at your header photo for awhile. The flowers and your shed are so pretty.

What fun finds. You did good on your hunt...and just like the fisherman...I suppose you had to clean your "catch" when you got home. GREAT items! xo Diana

Love your finds! It is fun shopping for others. I used to keep others in mind when I could get out and dig through the booths. Rebecca is a great shopper! She has shopped for me for years.

That runner would have come home with me too. They are so easy to make into a pillow cover. Hope you are well and have a lovely weekend planned...Ann
