Happy Tuesday friends!
It’s been extremely hot here the last 3-4 days so I didn’t do any thrifting on the weekend, but I did find a few things last week.
This large metal strainer was a great find for$1.
It’s marked Made in Italy and will make a great planter.
This ceramic blue spatter ware pitcher was most likely someone’s project from the 1980s. It’s in excellent condition and is marked CM on the bottom.
These vintage Androck tongs are 11″ long. The aluminum garlic press in unmarked.
I’ve been on a roll lately… haha. I found another rolling pin… this red-handled one for$2.
One handle is much more worn than the other. Now why would that be?
When I saw this large baseball glove cake pan for just $2 I had to get it. It’s marked 1987 Wilton.
We’re big baseball fans here. Go Jays!
I have a summer project in mind for this, and if it doesn’t work then it’ll go into my etsy shop.
This vintage gold metal mirrored vanity tray is marked Elegance GEP on Steel. I assume that means Gold Electro Plate.
I might have to keep this for myself, but I can’t decide if I should keep it as is or give it some spray paint love.
What would you do?
I used to sell vintage patterns of all kinds on ebay, and I still list some in my etsy shop.
I’ll be going through these vintage 1950s graph patterns to make sure they’re all in good condition before listing them. Some of the patterns include golf, rodeo, antique cars, hoedown… just to name a few.
My mother was a fabulous knitter, and even though I didn’t inherit her talents I feel the need to rescue vintage patterns when I see them.
I guess you’d call that sentimental thrifting. But there are worse things… right? 🙂
Thanks so much to you for reading, and until next time… keep on keepin’ on.
Remember to come back on Thursday to link up your vintage,
repurposed, and upcycled projects at Vintage Charm.
