Fantabulous Thrifting Road Trip!


Ok,ok fantabulous is a tacky word and I'm guilty of over using it! So Saturday we left the house at 8am heading to the St-Zotique Annual Church Bazaar...and we were too late!

Too late for these beauties!

Yep the pair was bought just 5 minutes before we arrived! They sold for 10$ a piece! Omg! I kicked myself but just for a  minute...afterall if I did not get them means that I was not meant to have them!
But I got to see this in the parking

A beautiful Dodge Valiant 1964! Look at that Aqua!



And to tell you the truth I'd never seen seen such an amazing Bazaar. I was running around like a chicken without a head and so was Dan. So many dishes, so much glass, so MUCH STUFF!



So we brought these home. And I bought a second bowling glass but it's already in use!




A close-up of the Pyrex beverage server and the Yum cup....

And these gorgeous creatures....But really...




Fondue forks in their original boxes! The mid-century Danish like are like a dream...I jumped on them like misery on poor people (this sounds better in french: Comme la misere sur le pauvre monde). They look unused or barely used. They will be available in my Etsy shop. The others I will keep for myself becasue I haven't had a good fondue in AGES and I gave ALL my fondue forks away a couple of years ago. How crazy is that? 

Wednesday I will continue this wonderful tale of thrift and Douce France if I were you I wouldn't miss this for the world....

Those chairs--swoon! You got some great stuff, though. The expression "like misery on poor people" made me laugh.

That's the reason we leave the house before 7:00am! You found some good things anyway. I have one of the "Yum" mugs.

How did I this post.... OMG... Its a dream for real. And I've yet to find a sale like this, like ever. I don't think Ive seen any one thing like this in a sale much less all this is one day.

I don't even know what to say. Well, yah I do but I will just sound jealous....

Wow you made out with tons of goodies at that sale, even without the chairs!! Love the kitty tea pot (I oddly enough have a decanter that matches it) and those bowling glasses are classic.
