This week in thrifting

This has been quite a surprising week in thrifting!

On wednesday in the my fave church basement I found a rocking vintage stainless steel french canister set! I've been wanting one for quite a while!

It has a couple of scratches but other wise in pretty good shape
and the price was right!
Today was a big yard sale day here and we were in the car bright and early.
We found this
A brand new unopened collapsible cooler set -2$
We used those a lot, to go dancing,thrifting,shopping....
We almost always carry water and snacks everywhere we go and the ones we have are pretty
sad now.
I bought this book with Dan in mind and I'm sure it will be consulted often because it's a DIY
book on 60's furniture!
 Here's a closeup
A vintage Tupperware and 4 micro brewery glasses.
2 Stella Artois glasses for my fave sister in law
who reads the blog.
I hope these are like the one you broke.
A sweet carnival butter dish
A vintage aluminum lunch box with.....
2 View Masters with a lot of slides
A green refrigerator dish, vaseline glass maybe?
I love that lid!
It was in the middle of children's games and clothes!
Dan also got a shoe rack but it's still in the car.
No Pyrex sighting, but you never know what I'll find tomorrow!
Be well my thrifty friends,
I'm off to start supper!

Is vaseline glass the same as uranium glass?

French containers are pretty cool. Love the style & never seen any in French before.
