November Thrifted Finds

November was a quieter month for thrifted finds. A few bazars and rummage sales, a few finds at the thrift stores.

Lovely seasonal display ideas for fragile bulbs - quart sealers.


Hanley Bone dishes "Mabel" pattern, green glass storage jar and footed egg cups (Japan).


 The Fruit Knives by Royal Crown Derby are treasures.


And I have a real fondness for carpenter made tool boxes (scrap wood), well used string wound on a carpenter made spool, tin funnels and old handles.


A very sweet little wall decoration, the "Kitchen Prayer".


Very cheerful snowman that came with its own light.


Thanks for visiting today. 

I post about my thrift finds near the end of each month. Thought I would provide links to my thrifted posts this year to date:

  1. What a great way to display vintage Christmas ornaments. The vintage Christmas has been very hard to find this year. I found one ornament the other day but packaged up with 14 other ones that were new. It just wasn't worth the $2.50 price for only one of the beauties so I left it behind. Cheers!

  6. You found some real goodies! I didn't get to shop this last week as John was not feeling well enough for me to leave him at home alone. But, that's ok, I have plenty of stuff!! LOL

    Love the jars of old ornaments.

  11. Hi there, Joy, I love the snowman, and I appreciate your showing the ornaments in the jars. I bought three jars at a thrift a while back and keep thinking, "What to do with them?" Now I know! Thanks so much for sharing this at the We Call It Olde Link Up! -Dawn @ We Call It Junkin.com

  12. Really nice finds Joy ... bone dishes are really pretty and of course, I love old tool boxes and the wound carpenter twine. Displaying fragile ornaments in jars is the safe way to show them off. I think we broke three antique ornaments last year trying to hang them on the tree.
    Happy Thanksgiving,
    Hugs,

  13. I love the mabel pattern bone dishes... they remind me of some I have in my hutch, eventually going into the etsy, if I ever find the dish that goes in the middle (with the little handle)
    Anyway, I was going to say-- I love how you have all the thrifted posts linked to your post at the bottom a clever and NEAT idea. (I saw the nut dishes similar to what I'm looking for in the JULY link)
    Happy Thanksgiving to you... and happy hunting/thrifting.

  20. The vintage ornaments in the glass jars is a great idea. Love your finds. That snowman is a cutie. I love old tool boxes, too. The more rustic, the better. Great green storage jar. So festive.
