Hope you're had a good week of thrifting last week. I'm pretty happy with how mine went.
Friday, I did a round at the thrift stores because most of them were having 50% off sale. No Pyrex (that wasn't sad Pyrex) but found:
1) baby change pad (retail: $30) - I'm actually using for our dog who is 11 and has a weak stomach. We've recently thrown away two dog beds due to "accidents" so I figured this would work better because it's waterproof and it's padded for comfort. I made a quick cover with some thrifted fabric and it's good to go.
2) The babysitter pillow (retail: $30) - I'm making a cover and using this for my baby who still sometimes falls backwards when he gets tired of sitting and kick his legs out in front of him.
3) "My Brest Friend" nursing pillow (retail: $65, plus tax, but worth every penny in my opinion) - I already own the same nursing pillow (and love it) but couldn't pass on this deal, especially since it was in perfect condition, so I'll either give to a friend or sell it.
Total spent: $5.30
Saturday morning, I went to an estate sale that promised "a lot of pyrex". It was mostly clear pyrex but I did scores these:
For all this (including the Pyrex), I paid $5! Actually, I later discovered a label on one of the butterfly gold 401s that said $15 for the set of 3 (which I think is a bit outrageous and I wouldn't have paid). The guy running the sale must have missed that too or didn't even look because they didn't price most of the smaller items...lucky me :)
Since I was done by 8:30, I headed over to two church rummage sales only blocks away from each other and were starting at 9 and 10. The first one wasn't that great so I decided to get to the second one early. By the time I got in line, it was still more than 1/2 hour before it started and there were easily over 100 people in line! Luckily starbucks had donated coffee that was being handed out by a nice volunteer at the church...just what I needed. This sale was huge! Two floors with 4 different sections. I headed straight for the housewares. The Pyrex was right by the entrance. There was a red and a blue primary mixing bowl but both in pretty bad shape, especially the blue. As soon as I put it down, another lady bought them for $1.50. Beside those were a set of old orchard cinderella bowls, which were in great condition but I don't really love the pattern. However, since the prices being thrown around seemed low, I asked how much they were just out of curiosity. The answer: "$3 for the set". What's a girl to do, let them possibly end up in some abusive home where they'd get the dishwasher treatment?! Not on my Pyrex watch!
I just wonder what Pyrex got snapped up by the people ahead of me in line...
I also got some odds and ends including a set of bbq utencils that looked new for $4. I saw a huge crowd surrounding a few table of shoes so I walked by it without looking at first. By the time I was ready to leave, the crowd had cleared so I decided to take a peak to see what all the fuss was about. That's when I spotted these super cute Nine West patent leather wedge sandals:
