Vintage and Thrift Hunting- Post #2

Welcome to Vintage and Thrift Hunting – this is Post #2

Quick recap :Since one of my favorite pastimes is vintage and thrift hunting, I’ve decided to start a regular feature here on the blog about the fun and interesting things I find whether I am scouring thrift stores, garage or tag sales, antique markets or estate auctions.

I do sell some of the items I buy, sometimes I repurpose them, mostly I don’t because I like them just the way they are. If the item is for sale, I will mark it available and if it’s not for sale you will see these initials NFS. I will put a link below to my selling site if you are interested.

The weather was so nice on the weekend a road trip was in order. These cheese crocks were sold as a set in a very unorganized thrift store (I never judge a book by its cover, the best deals are the ones you dig for). I decided to sell the two smaller ones and keep the larger one for my collection. They were in excellent condition.

My next find were these nine puzzle blocks that turned into four different puzzles. Very economical as well at just $1.00. I’m displaying the bunny side ¬†for Easter. (NFS)

When I saw these arch shaped frames (there are two), there was just something about them and when I flipped them over there was a write up about the artist, Michael Kulicke. Turns out these frames are collectible. I haven’t decided whether or not to sell them. If I find the perfect spot for them, I will keep them but I guess I can’t keep everything…lol

My Latest Venture…

I love the thrill of the hunt. I always have and I think I always will.

I can shop at thrift stores and go to antique auctions all year, but as soon as I see the first sign of Spring I get excited knowing I’ll soon be spending time scouring garage sale after garage sale looking for vintage items and other trinkets and treasures.

My latest venture includes my selling these vintage items, trinkets and treasures in my Etsy Shop, on Pinterest and on my own FaceBook selling group entitled Wandaful Things, Trinkets and Treasures.

These sort of signs make my heart begin to race and my palms sweat in anticipation of what I might find…
