Okay! Introduction over. Without further ado, a few little items from recent thrifting:
Canister made in [former] West Germany. $1.29 at St. Vincent de Paul.
My favorite part about it (besides the awesome design and how perfect it is as a garlic container) is the warning under the lid to not "place" the cover in "electric dishwashers".
That made me giggle for some reason.
Heller Designs Inc. glass containers from a rummage sale--$1.25 total.
When I came home and saw the same set on etsy for 30 bucks, my immediate reaction was "BOOYAH." Then I opened the lid on the larger canister and found a large chip in the rim.
Un-booyah. I'll find a non-food use for that one, I guess.
"The Reluctant Dragon" LP, read by Boris Karloff--99 cents at St. Vincent de Paul
My husband has collected records for years. With the advent of children, we've had fun finding stuff for them as well. I have to be honest: some children's records are intolerable. But Caedmon (now HarperCollins Audio) is a reliable label for terrific spoken word albums for both children and adults. This record is too scratched up for listening, but the cover is adorable.
I'll frame it for one of my sons' rooms.
