Retro Tuesday: What I left behind

Sorry for slacking on the posting. We got quite a boatload of snow too here in Quebec, you know that heavy snow good for snowballs and building forts....We had to shovel the roof over the weekend and I had to shovel the access to the basement yesterday...I could only shovel for a short time then take a break and then go back outside for more back breaking fun!

So today for Retro Tuesday I'm sharing the stuff I saw in the fleas but didn't take home with me...

A Charlie's Angels lunch box. As a kid I was a HUGE fan of that show; and I had a total girl crush on Farrah Fawcett. I was crushed when she left the show. My best pal Sylvie and I would play Charlie's Angels for hours on end.

As Dan puts it so eloquently: Hey you have them all!
Ok so I have these beauties but I still love to take pics of Pyrex in ' The Wild'. 

Divided casseroles, still not loving the divided ones. They don't stack up well, I prefer the open bakers.
But I would love to win some, hint,hint.

I find those mixers soooo cool! But you know my problem...not enough room!

I was so sure this carafe was made by Pyrex but I was wrong! It's by the Inland Glass Works.

It still has the tag with it. I'm always fascinated how somebody can have something and not use it. That is soo weird.
We also hit a lot of thrift stores but I was surprised by the un-vintage nature of their offerings. Everything was 2008 Xmas tree shop or leftover Crate and Barrel. And a lot of Tuscany inspired wares....you know the type. It seems that people in Maine are getting tired of the tuscan look.

So that's it for today! Be sure to visit my blogging buddy Tracy @ Crazy Suburban Mom for more Retro Tuesday :)

Oooh, I would have loved that middle dish in the first pic! Were their prices reasonable?

If I recall correctly they were 10-15$ which is kind of expensive in my book.

Pyrex in the wild...too funny!

Love the Pyrex in the Wild comment! I had to leave a butterfly gold casserole in the GW as they had it priced at $7 no lid...a small casserole at that. Geesh...not for me.

Hey that carafe is cool. And yep, I wonder the same thing. Picked up that gorgeous silver rimmed creamer a few weeks ago and it still had the sticker on it, too. Crazy!
