Thrifting This Week!

June 24, 2012
It's wasn't my best week thrifting but not my worst!

I purchased this wooden ironing board for $2. I think it is homemade. It had this little iron on top of it for 25 cents.

It's a vintage Ohio Art metal toy iron with a plastic handle.

Next I found this!

Yup! It's a scrabble game for $6.50! I thought it might come in handy!

Here is a copper colander that I thought might work for a kitchen vignette. $6, made in Korea, marked solid copper.

For $2, three alluminum vintage Jello ring molds and 8 of the molds on the right!

For $12, seven vintage croquet balls. This wasn't really a set as more were red than any other color. BUT red is my favorite color. I put them in a wire basket!

A Weyman's Snuff Jar $6.
This vintage metal flower frog and sepia print of a vintage photo were $17. Not a thrifty buy for sure, but how cute is this photo on the week before America's birthday?

you are talking too much />
