On this first day of November I would like to share my items purchased this past month at thrift stores.
The bins are always a necessity for me but….. I can no longer move too many of them at one time. I was rearranging my garage and moving storage around to fit the boat into the garage and threw out my back. I have spent the past two weeks recovering and it has not been without a few tears.
Bins large Sterilite $2.99 with no cover
Small bin with lid .79
These two were actually vintage book store purchases
– Embroidered Torso Stand $3.50
Country Garden Fairy $1.69
I found two items for my Pyrex collection – actually five but 3 are not in the above photo.
Corning Ware P-14-B 400ml dish with Pyrex lid $1.49
I could not pass up another red fridgie for .79
I think I now have 4 of these!
I did use them to make Friendship bread a few years ago.

I like to add a candle head Santa each year. I have so many sometimes I do not know if I already have it or not.
This one is so cute and was only 39 cents. I just had to purchase it.
Here is little Rio 8 years ago already!
I also enjoy scrapbooking and purchased ribbon for 39 cents each and the Autumn Stickers for 79 cents which have sunflowers and squirrels.
Christmas Memories A Folk Art Celebration 79cents
Christmas Cats Lesley Anne Ivory
Halloween Crafts book called Ghostly Frights for Halloween Nights
and a Spanish/English dictionary 99c
I have been collecting blue glass for years. Two days a clear glass pitcher with a beautiful blue glass handle was bumped off the table and went crashing to the floor. I purchased this pitcher to replace it for $8.99. It is a little more expensive than I would like but … oh well.
You can see the cabinet I have filled with blue glass. I have wanted to take every piece out and wash the inside shelves…..I finally did it a few days ago while I was recovering from my back. It took a lot longer because I had to move slowly. I got it done and it looks wonderful. I can now turn the inside light on in the evening and feel good about the collection.
This glass does not match anything I have but again it was 39c so I got it. Often the blue glassware is about $1.69 so I did not pass on it. It will get used.
There are two items still out in my car. An amazing Nutcracker wooden gate that could go in front of a fireplace when not in use.
I window with quilt pieces in the glass panes. It is older and was 14.99. I like it though. I may freshen it up a bit but I thought it would motivate me to possibly make something similar.
I hope you enjoyed my little thrifting treasures. It makes me happy. If you have thrifted any items similar to these feel free to comment and add a link to your post. HAPPY THRIFTING!
