When inside, I realized that indeed it was full of vintage goodies, even though it was a house no more than about 10 years old and the woman running it was not much older than I. Truthfully, it was a glorified indoor garage sale, but with goodies like this and low prices, I wasn't about to complain!
Vintage Christmas ornaments--PINK vintage Shiny Brite Christmas ornaments, to be exact! I think I paid $2 per box for these.
When I first walked in, I snatched up the Shiny Brites right away. I hadn't been prepared to go junking so I only had a little cash with me. The other thing that immediately caught my eye was a huge basket full of blue glass canning jars with zinc lids. There must have been close to 20, and they were marked $5 each. I had to cut my shopping time short because I was 1) out of money and 2) Porter was behaving like a bull in a china shop, so I left to go home and hand him off to Quin and get more cash and head back. I thought maybe if I offered to buy all of the jars that I could get them for a lower price but by the time I got back just an hour later, they were gone and the basket was too, so somebody else bought the whole kit and caboodle just like I had planned to do. Cardinal rule of thrift shopping: if you see something you like, buy it right away or risk being disappointed later! Rats.
Did you find any good junk this weekend? I'm linking up with Apron Thrift Girl's Thrift Share Monday!
