|Slow few weeks here but I finally came home with something.|
Good news. Last Saturday while THM and THH went to Universal Studios I took the day to do some thrifting and Christmas shopping. I got most of my Christmas shopping done thankfully. Just a few more things and we are good to go.
I took the opportunity to visit a new thrift shop. I walked in and it was packed with stuff. I mean floor to ceiling stuff. Did not comply with ADA standards at all, the isles were smooshed. I made my way around and found the housewares. No Pyrex. So I looked at all the Christmas stuff they had. I mean this place was like a freaking Bronners in there. (Do you know what Bronners is? Most Michigan Christmas experts do) Anyways a double take through the pan lids spot this.
A 404 cradle. Yay! Marked at $2.95. Now this place is a minimum debit of $5. Darn I needed to find a cool filler item. So I browsed he Christmas stuff and found an older table runner. Perfect. $3.95.
I took my goodies up to pay and to my surprise it was half off the entire store. DAMN! I needed to find something else. I really wanted that freaking cradle. and no way was I putting it down to go to the bank for $3. I spent 45 minutes looking for something else. I just couldn't bring myself to buy something I didn't like. So I finally spotted a craft area. Looking for buttons. I love buttons. I have a few jars full. Not one button in many many bins. But i did manage to find a baggie of beads. THM will love this. He likes any and all art supplies.
Took my new goodies up and finally my total was over $5. I really wanted that cradle. Now to find the Christmas bowl that goes with it.
At another store, that was cash only, thankfully I had cash, and this is why I spent the last of before the $5 min store. They had 2 lime pie plates and at Verde divided dish. If I would of had the cash I would have bought one pie plate. I already have a lime but it was a good deal. I didn't and spent my money on this Old Town Blue stick butter dish. Now I have 3 of the butter dishes.
Then by chance it looks like I am making another butter print set. I found the 502 at St. Vincent De Paul's. I thought I could trade it as that color and style is popular and I have traded a few of them before. But then at Goodwill I found this 503 (and a 475 lid!) . I guess I will keep my eye out for 2 - 501s and see if I could trade the entire set for entire set of something I do not have. I would actually trade both of them right now for a Butterfly gold 502 and 2 - 501s. Or that Christmas 404.
Speaking of Christmas. Remember when I found the 1960 Holiday Promotion? I was so happy. Well a few months later I found the proper lid. And then last week I found the cradle! I didn't look closely at the cradle but I knew it was for Pyrex. Not having any bowls I assumed it was for a 043. (I guess I really didn't look at it at all) I didn't notice it was round. But when I got home I found out it went with my Holiday promo. I completed the whole set for around $11. Awesome.
I'm so ready for the holidays to be here.
I love Christmas!
