The lucky streak continues.

There were so many church rummage sales, estate sales and yard sales near me Saturday morning I was honestly stressing about which to go to and in what order, since many of them started at the same time.  I also had very limited time since I had other plans for the day, so I had to skip a vintage sale promising Pyrex that was more than 1/2 hour drive away. 

I've been super lucky with finding cool Pyrex flameware! These were both from a church rummage sale for only $1 each!
Found this lime cake pan there for $1.  It's a bit dishwashered and scratched but the inside is still nice and it matches my new loaf pan.
Found two vintage aprons for $1.

I got a pair of pretty lace curtains in perfect condition for only $1.  The price tag was originally marked at $4 but someone decided that was too much, scratched it out and put $1 - lucky me!  Love the scalloped edge details.

Went to an estate sale as well.  I spotted a pink 404 but someone had put it aside already.  I did eventually find the 401, which was pretty scratched but for 50 cents I had to take her home.
Also got a Pyrex measuring cup for a quarter.  I thought it was very interesting because it didn't have the typical red markings - the markings were all in raised glass.  Seems practical because the red markings often gets worn away with time.  The glass was also particularly thick.  I wonder how old this little guy is.
At another church rummage sale, I found a Pyrex caraf for 75 cents, a butterfly gold salt shaker for a quarter and a country festival storage jar for $1.  The two large glass jars behind the Pyrex are unmarked but I like the lids with the round knobs at the top so I bought them for $1 each to store my flour and sugar.  I also got two set of metal measuring cups for $1 to use as scoops (but forgot to include them in the picture).
Picked up a package of vintage rick rack and trims for $1.  Is it just me or does vintage rick rack feel much softer than the modern ones?

It was a very productive 2 hours of thrifting!  :)

Hope you had a wonderful weekend and found some goodies!
