April Thrifted Finds

Early April had very few garage sales, fortunately last weekend seemed to be the 'beginning of the season' plus there was a local 'church' sale.
A didgeridoo, vintage dolly, three games and a Batman lunch box were from last weekend finds as were the china and glass below.

I did find a small truck and two home made wooden totes in a thrift store.
More thrifted finds.

It was a treat to find some mirrors last weekend as well as a small display cabinet. 

Always a bit of a challenge to photograph mirrors. I put two sheets of white paper in front of the larger mirror.

Thanks for visiting. 
I will be back on Thursday.

Sharing with:


  1. A Batman lunchbox! You totally rock! I had the same problem trying to take pics of a vintage, very shiny GE toaster this weekend. I didn't do as well with it as you did with the mirrors.

  2. Great finds Joy!! Love the mirror especially. And the Mother's plaque - I have a collection of those in my hallway. I think they are so special.,


  3. I had to chuckle at your Batman is why :) I stopped by the local mission store a week or so ago for PRACTICAL reasons...looking for curtains / linens for sons new home. So, in the front window I spied what I thought was a vintage telephone! The old black ones...ones like my grandmother might have had. I excitedly asked to see the phone ( there is usually a horrible glare from the sun and you can barely make out what is in the window ) and when they brought it to me it was a repro Batman phone! LOL ! :)

  4. Love the wooden totes as much as Batman's lunch box. I am reading a mystery story and the bad guy has taken the little girl's Batman lunchbox. Holy coincidences, Joy!

  5. I'm kind of scared to go to garage sales. I might end up loving something and where on earth would it go?

  6. Nice finds! Love all the glass (of couse!) and that didgeridoo. Cool stuff!

  7. It is all about the thrill of the hunt!!! I love all your finds! I always wonder where I will put the stuff I find - but somehow I always manage to put it somewhere!!

  8. I enjoyed seeing all your finds. The hunt is the treat... and the reward are the finds!

  9. Great finds, and yes mirror photography can be tricky. Please come share at the Anything Goes linky party, if you have not already.

  10. wow, you really hit the jackpot!

  11. Awesome finds! Pinned. I love your blog. Thank you so much for being part of our party. I hope you will stop by next Tuesday. Happy Friday! Lou Lou Girls

  12. Amazing finds, Joy! I do appreciate you sharing with A Return to Loveliness,

  13. Love the mirrors and the teapot Joy! We were busy all day at a family wedding. While heading to it in the morning I saw yard sale signs everywhere. It was killing me not to be able to stop. lol! Thanks for sharing with SYC.


Thanks for visiting. I read and appreciate all your comments. Joy
