Bargain Bin - Thrift Share Monday

I've already blogged my $1 quilt save from the bargain tables outside one of our thrift shops. And there were more treasures to find on that rainy, blustery Saturday!!
Splatter mushroom planter

Instand food thermometer collection
Pawing through the 25 cent bin of kitchen utensils
(I grab a spatula, usually, as my rake to search - saves my fingers from little cuts!)
Those thermometers above are fun in their varied designs. Testing them in a cup of boiling water proves some w-i-d-e accuracy margins! (or is that precision - always got those two mixed up in science class)
Silverplated servers
Naturally these servers were in their rough form when found - dark black!
Oneida tudor plate Bridal Wreath pie servers with a lonely Sheffield salad server.
Eva Zeisel Frost Flowers for Hall-craft

Lovely finds inside too - the peacock blue flower color of the Eva Zeisel cup/saucers is just gorgeous.
Took awhile to find the matching saucers once the cups were spied, the plates to go with were in very poor condition - so behind they stayed.

Ben Seibel Raymor Steubenville
And Contempora cups, saucers and plates found too.
These were very dirty and cleaned up beautifully!

Sharing today with:


  1. Those blue and white cups and saucers are utterly lovely!!

  2. Love those thermometers, I picked up one similar to the white enamel one a few weeks ago.

  3. I love mushrooms! That planter is very cool.

  4. Great finds. The thermometer collection looks sweet.

  5. I have a bunch of old thermometers too! I think I need to present them as a collection.

  6. Thanks, folks! I'm mulling over another way to present the thermometers too. Right now they're a "bouquet" in my kitchen window. :-)

  7. I like the handful of thermometers. If you find any interesting patterns on potato mashers grab them for me - I'll pay you back somehow...

  8. I am in love with all of the tea cups you have found! I thrift a ton of my clothing ( and have found some killer stuff! Do you have a lot of thrift stores in your area?


Thanks for stopping by!! Love to read your comments - whether on vintage thrifting or creative stitching!! (Comments are moderated due to high spam lately - sorry!)
