more thrift store treasures

Seems like I can't get enough of thrift store shopping. Here are some treasures I found just yesterday.

Crazy Daisy Pyrex pieces - I found these both on the same day but at different thrift stores. The bowl cost me $2.99 and the casserole dish & lid was $3.99. I have been using the Pyrex dishes with lids to store left overs in the fridge instead of plastic.

I also found a few pieces of pottery to add to the collection. This is a Floraline by McCoy planter. I bought this at an "indoor flea market" a.k.a. independently owned junk store. I paid $4.00 for it. I love the matte finish. "Floraline" pieces were made by McCoy for florists.

A speckled pink planter. Not sure of the make. Maybe McCoy? It was 99 cents at the Salvation Army.

Another yellow planter to add to the collection - the one with the basket weave on 2 feet. Again, not sure of the maker on this one.

And this was the find of the day - an antique piece of Weller art pottery. The Weller pottery company went out of business in the 1930's - so this planter was made at that time or before. It is very pretty with a crazed finish over soft yellow, green & white. My husband found it sitting on the shelf at a Salvation Army store. It was marked "$4.99 As Is" on the tag. It does have a hairline crack at the lip. I couldn't believe they would price a cracked piece of pottery $4.99 so I figured it had to be something old and valuable. So I took a chance and bought it. When I got home I noticed the imprint on the bottom - Weller. A very nice piece of antique pottery. My first piece of Weller.

I bought this wooden spoon collector's rack for 99 cents. It is going to be transformed into something new. I will show the entire project when finished.
I have a new obsession with these metal picture frames. This one cost only 39 cents. The other piece is a brass plate of some sort. I am going to paint it and also use it as a picture frame.

Because I love Pioneer Woman and also wish I could win a pair of Country Outfitter cowboy boots (but never do) I splurged on these boots at Salvation Army. They were $9! Yikes - I guess prices are going up at the thrift. They are leather so I plan on giving them a good polishing before wear.

A nice piece of milk glass. I will be using this on my desk for pens.

I also bought another "baby ben" alarm clock to add to this collection.

I am loving all of my thrift store treasures!
