My Top Ten Finds in 2012

In 2012, I shared the loot on most of my thrifting and garage sale trips.  Here are some of the highlights:


In July I purchased this Cram's Terrestrial 12 Inch Globe for $10 at a thrifty consignment shop.  I loved the silvery colored oceans.





Also in July at the same thrifty consignment shop, I purchased this Hanson 2060 Model vintage scale for $8. It was in great shape.





At the other thrifty consignment shop in my town, I purchased this Royal Quiet Deluxe portable typewriter in April for $20.  Like new condition.



At a thrifty consignment shop in August, I purchased this Art Gift tole tray for $4.



In July, I went garage sale-ing and purchased the Brownie camera for $1.50 and the Baby Ben clock for $1.00.  This was the start of both a camera and clock collection!



This Godinger hand clip stand was a great find in October for $8.  Perfect for cards and photos.



This $3 Enesco vintage dog figurine was purchased in the fall at a consignment shop.  This purchase expanded my pug dog collection to include other dog breeds.



Loved the Infant of Prague chalkware figurine that I purchased for $4 at the consignment shop.



I purchased this Buckeye vintage gas pump in early 2012 for $6 at a consignment shop.  The pump was added to my garden junk displays.

I hope 2013 will bring with it some great vintage finds as well!

  8. Don't you wish the gas pump was attached to a tank?! Great finds, Carlene, and I love the new header, too. Does that mean I should change out my Christmas header? :@
