Thrift Share Monday

Ok, so I've decided that since I'm a thrift girl too, why not join the wonderful Apron Thrift Girl for her Thrift Share Monday's? So here it first Thrift Share Monday post. Written in a flurry of typing before I go to work!!
As some of you may know, I used to be an antique's dealer and vintage clothing dealer. I've taken an extended sabbatical -lol, from doing this because I've since become a mother. Trying to make it to the estate sales sometimes before 7 a.m. with a baby or small child, just doesn't really work unless you have help. Trust me, I've tried!I still go nowadays, but it's for personal items these days. I just can't get rid of the thrift bug. Nor do I care too!Every now and then I get to go in these estate sales if it's being done by one of antique malls that I've sold at or even people that have known me from my antique dealer days. Last week, to my delight, I was able to get into a sale...even though it doesn't start until this weekend :D
I had to completely restrain from not buying a lot, but I did want to share a couple of items that did manage to come home with me.Such as these adorable juice children's juice glasses...

What can I say? I have a weakness for vintage kitchenware!
I also love enamelware and found these two cobalt blue enamelware canisters. What will find their way into them?


  1. How wonderful to go to a thrift sale! I love the blue canisters, they are beautiful. I also really enjoy bargain hunting and thrift shops and how exciting it is to find treasures:)
    Take care my friend;
