May Thrift Polish Share

Thrifting Roundup for May
(Before and After Project at bottom of this post)

Pinks and Red and very retro kitchen finds.


Rarely do I find a knob end well aged rolling pin - this one was in the 'vintage' section of the the thrift store and so was priced 'up'. Couldn't resist. The ironstone jug has no mark but it does have wear on the bottom. Pyrex fridge dishes, wooden spoons and small copper molds against the background of old plywood from a carpenters shop.

A 'not a stencil' sign - love the slant on the letters (no I didn't make it). The gauge and flash attachment along with a 'what is this?' brass stem and another evening picture of that old clock.


A snapshot of working on the some of the work sequence as a re-seller of vintage collectibles -  research after cleaning then pricing, tagging and packing ready for putting into my booths.

The rose chintz teapot and matching cup/saucer and teaplate are by Sadler. The basket is from Italy and the tin sign is advertising hot chocolate.

1980's red grid on white with red lid Flour and Sugar canisters joined in with the kitchenware in my booths.

More great old kitchen ware.

A large seafood serving dish with its own lidded sauce container in lovely mid-century turquoise as well as a tree light candle holder, a metal wire letter/napkin holder on a well worn and vintage table runner.

Another sign I didn't make - well done. Chintz platter, a Nabob 2 cup teapot, two silver plated salad servers and an English mug.

Project this week

  5. It's a lot of work being a reseller. I never had a booth, but a lot of people do here. I sold online and I always had a ton of merchandise in the house. I don't miss it, but it's still fun to see that treasures are still out there to be found.
