Best Pyrex find from a thrift shop - This entire set of Butterprint refrigerator dishes was found sitting on the shelf at my favorite thrift store. I bought the entire set for less than $10.
My first Fire King bowls - found on Craigslist. I can't wait to look for others to complete this set.
Milk Glass - 2013 was the year of milk glass for me. Previous to this year I never looked twice at it. Now I can't get enough. I love it. I went to an amazing estate sale this year where I bought several beautiful pieces all from the same sale. Husband also found me that beautiful milk glass punch bowl this past year too. It is hard to choose my favorite piece but those candlesticks (the ones in the back - not the hobnail) rank up there pretty high.
So what are you looking to collect this year? I know for me I am always on the lookout for more Pyrex for sure. Most specifically I would love to find the Green Dots #404 bowl to complete my set and also the Hot Air Balloons #444 bowl to complete the chip and dip set. I may have to end up going online for those.
I'm also hunting for vintage clothing these days. After my stint as a 50's housewife for Halloween I'd love to find a few great dresses from the 1940's - 1960's.
I love looking at the collecting blogs that I follow to see what great things others find. It certainly inspires my collecting. All in all anything vintage from the 1940's - 1960's has my heart and if it is priced right I will buy it. Kitchen stuff and glassware are favorites.
Here is to more great vintage finds in 2014! Thanks for coming along on the hunt with me.
