Thrifty Treasures

Oh Goodwill how I sing thy praises. Seriously……..I LOVE Goodwill (which I’m sure you already know). I want to shout it from the top of a mountain and I don’t care who hears me! :o)

I’ve been on a bit of a Goodwill frenzy the last few weeks. I don’t always bring things home but sometimes the hunt can be just as fun!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA         I did a double take when I came across these glasses. Of course the polka dots caught my eye and I was instantly in love. Our glasses have been slowly dwindling and we desperately needed some new ones. Can you believe I found a set of 6? In Goodwill land that is unheard of. They were scattered throughout the store which made the thrifting hunt even MORE fun. It was like an egg hunt…..but with glasses which was right up my alley!
Carafe (GW)- $1.00
6 Glasses (GW)- $1.00 each
Flower Pot (GW)- $.49
Tray (Garage Sale) - $1.00
Plate- Free!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA         These bad boys are super heavy. They seem to be very good quality but I’m not familiar with the logo. I tried to snap a pic. of it but it wasn’t showing up so
I drew it…………….

Do any of you dish loving peeps recognizes this logo? If so do tell. I’m wondering if I have a gem on my hands. If I don't it’s okay I’ll still love them anyway (oh that rhymes).

I recently gave away my copy of Jemima J and was on the hunt for another copy to add back into my library. This is a GREAT read and one I want to keep on hand (for a list of other fab. books click HERE). I also picked up this super cute coffee cup. I planned on using it as a gift bag for a Christmas gift but have decided to keep it……it’s just too cute!

Coffee Cup (GW)- $.49
Book: Stranger in Paradise (GW)- $. 49
Book: Jemima J (GW) – $. 49

I’m always on the hunt for great frames especially great frames with mats! Ever since my craft room redo yellow has moved in and become my new favorite color! I was tickled when I came across this yellow notebook. It was brand new still had the wrapping on it.

Frame (GW)- $1.99
Note Book (GW)- $1.99

As a photographer I’m always on the lookout for props and stopped in my tracks when I came across this cute little purse. I can’t wait to snap a few pics of a little one all frilled up with this houndstooth cuteness in tow. I’m thinking about adding a removable pink rosette. What do you think?

Purse (Thrift Store)- $3.99, kind of high but it was just too cute to pass up

The jewelry gods have shinned some light on me lately. Usually the jewelry section in GW is a hit or miss but I’ve walked away with some goodies the past few trips.

Beaded Earrings (GW)- $.79
Necklace (GW)- $.79
Medallion Earrings (GW)- $.79
Cuff (GW)- $.79 
That brings our ending balance to = 21.09!

I would have spent more than that on the glasses alone.
See why I LOVE thrifting so much? 


  1. What great finds you found this week.Cute purse, that could be an AL football purse with the houndstooth. And i love your jewelry! I find most of my new jewelry at yardsales these days.

  2. I just found you blog! The logo is Anchor Hocking. Great finds!!

  3. Nice finds! That is the symbol for Anchor Hocking. This marking was discontinued in 1977. So you have some vintage glasses. :-D
    Have a great week.

  4. Ooops! Just read where that marking may still be used. Google Anchor Hocking marks and you will find more info.

  5. Anchor Hocking is the brand. I love Goodwill, too!

  6. Great finds! I agree with Rhoda, change out the pink rosette for a crimson one and you'll be ready to Roll with the Tide.

  7. I love the glasses!! Great finds!!

  8. Kendra- Your GW definitely has waaay better prices than ours!! You found some real cute things, too. Your jewelry is a fun find and I love the bright yellow flower pot and the black/white purse. Glad you came by for a visit!
