This week I've done a lot of vintage shopping...mostly to keep my sanity in tact through some major unwanted (but necessary) home renovations. SO, I've decided to share my top 5 thrifty vintage kitchen finds from this week!
#1 - Star Glow Tea Pot, Creamer, and Sugar Bowl!
I've been scouting thrift stores and antique stores for months trying to find the last remaining pieces to my Star Glow dish set...On Sunday, I found these 3 rare gems at a very cute antique store on 31st street called the La Grange Antique Mall. The Tea Pot was $10 and the creamer and sugar bowl were $4 a piece! I got the whole set for 18 bucks!
#2 - 50s Atomic Aqua Squiggly Bowl!
I found this SWEET bowl in Ohio when I went to visit the other weekend. It was only $8! It fits perfectly on top on my microwave and it's great for holding fruits and veggies!
#3 - Frosted Lemon Yellow Martini Pitcher and Glasses!
This is probably one of the best finds I've had in a while. I have wanted one of these for a LONG time, but I could never let myself spend the money. Usually these pitchers are outrageously priced (especially if they are a cool color like this one) they can run anywhere from $25 - $45. I got this set in Ohio as well. The pitcher was $3.99 and the glasses were $2.99 a piece.
#4 - Cute Green Owl Mug
I found this little guy at Goodwill for 45 cents. He looks great next to my giant lucky cat in my kitchen. I might use him as a planter later, but for right now he's strictly decorative.
#5 - 50s Coffee Percolator
I found this pot at Goodwill as well. I even tried it out and it STILL works! It's in great condition, but I'm going to use it for display right now. I got it for $2.99!
So when you're out and about, keep your eyes peeled and don't be afraid to shop around for the perfect piece...Sometimes it pays off in the end!
Until next time...
