Franciscan Autumn

Last year I shared some photos of my main dish set, Vernonware Raffia. This is my second dish collection, Franciscan Autumn (I have shared a picture of this pattern in a Vintage Dinnerware post). As luck would have it, shortly after both of these posts I came across a huge lot of dishes on Craigslist, […]

Some Finds from the Swap Meet

Last weekend we had quite a bit of luck at the swap meet. Just look at this haul! It was such a rush finding all these things, I really haven’t done much ‘junking’ in quite some time. I don’t know what my favorite is, but I think I am most smitten with the figurines, just […]

Weekends are Cool.

This has been the best kind of weekend. I finally found the perfect piece of furniture for my sewing room. It was in good time, I had piles of messes everywhere and was so close to breaking down and buying some Ikea furniture. I waited and continued to search the thrift shops. On Friday I […]

New Clock

Sometimes you have to go back to an estate sale, because there is something there that you can’t stop thinking about. Luckily for me, this pretty guy was still waiting for me to take him home from the epic 60s estate sale–and he was an extra 20% off. Now I just need to figure out […]

Some Finds

Today was an epic estate sale-ing day. I went to two sales, the first far better than the second. The first was over 30 minutes away, and I wanted to get there first thing because I saw a picture of a Gemma Taccogna pin cushion, and I was determined to make her mine. Well, when […]

Some Recent Finds

Lately I have been checking Craigslist every morning for estate sales. This morning I was beyond delighted when I learned of a monthly antiques and collectibles show going on just a few miles from my home. How have I not heard of this before? It wasn’t a very big show, but there were definitely some […]

A Little Starburst and Other Finds

Yesterday’s thrift finds. 1. Two platters. First unmarked (anyone know what it is?), second Franciscan Starburst 2. Vintage 60′s dress 3. Globe! I must say, I have had quite a bit of lucky at the thrift store lately. The night before last I was browsing etsy and ebay looking at the starburst pattern, feeling sorry […]

Some new Heywood Wakefield

I have been known to get messages from the thrift stores. I don’t know how to describe it other than a strong urge or pull to go to one particular store, where I always score big. These differ from my casual, eh, I feel like perusing a bunch of junk, because they are intense and […]

My Cypress Knee

If you follow me on twitter or instagram (username misscedar for new ig-ers), you probably already heard plenty about my latest thrift find–my new cypress knee! I have been slightly obsessed with cypress knees since I was a young girl. One of my aunts has the most incredible mid century cypress knee lamp (which looks […]

The title says it all. I think I have had some pretty good thrift luck lately.
