Thrift Share

I had a good weekend thrifting, hope you did too. It was overcast here Thursday, Friday and Saturday - so good way to cheer up a cloudy day! On to the finds:

Found this nice stainless steel batter dispenser for pancakes and crepes. I didn't know what it was at first, thought it was a flour sifter :>)Good thing it says batter dispenser on it, otherwise I wouldn't have bought it, I paid $3.

I like these coffee colored glass canisters that were made in Belgium, paid $5 for the pair.

This Dansk pencil holder is teak and was made in Thailand. It looks nice with some markers in it and will go on my desk. Cost was $3.

I've been looking for a retro radio and this Panasonic faux wood grain radio fits the bill, it was $4.

I like the style of these mix drink glasses and it's nice to find a set of eight. Only .40 each - great deal. They will go in my bar cabinet.

This pair of ceramic/wood mid century lamps are in good condition and will go in my daughter's bedroom on the night stands. They were only $6 for the pair!  There is an old metal bed in this room that I had stripped to the bare metal and sealed with clear varnish. I think the lamps will add a nice contrast. Once I get shades for the lamps I'll take a picture so you can see.

I also found a couple more mid century plates for hanging or displaying. Less than $2 for the both of them.

I got two of these redwood benches at a garage sale for extra seating around my patio table - $5 for the pair, I plan to paint them and will also show this in a later posting with the tree stumps on my deck too.

Another project, thought this wood box was cute, like the shape of it. I'm going to paint it and will show you when I'm done with it.

Another ice bucket, this one was made In Italy by P.P.I., PEDRN or PEDRINI? It's nicely made, think it will go well with my Heller plates - I'm still on the lookout for a few more plates.

What did you find?


  1. You found some very cool things. I especially like the Dansk pen holder and the mid-century lamps! Great finds!

  2. I love that pen holder and the glasses are awesome, how great that you found a set!

  3. The pencil holder is my favorite! :-)

  4. Hey, I found two of those dark bottles a while ago, maybe three weeks ago. I thought they were very 60's and thought about putting vitamins in them, or something that I forget to take on a regular basis. Mine are about 8" and 6" high or so. What are you going to do with yours? My pair were $3. I just love finding unique things, don't you?

  5. I think mine are the same size, I plan to put them on a shelf that I haven't hung yet, maybe this will get me moving. :>)

  6. Wow! Great vintage finds!! I rarely find vintage pieces at my favorite Goodwill. I love the glass mom had a set when I was growing up!

  7. I love those olive glasses- so cute- and a set of 8! Lucky duck.

  8. I love the brown glass canisters! I found a matching blue pair also made in Belgium...our sets would look lovely together :)

    I look forward to seeing what you do with those benches.

  9. Love all your finds but those lamps make me swoon!

  10. Eek, so many lovely finds. I wouldn't have thought of a batter dispenser, but that's so damn practical now that I know it exists. Let us know how it works for you!

  11. I love the redwood benches. Wish I had found them. Good job.

  12. You found some great stuff! I love thrifting!

  13. Good grief! wow--you did great! I'm really loving those benches, lamps and that vintage radio--how cool is that!

  14. Cute lamps--what a great haul! Thanks for linking up to Share the Love Wednesday!!

  15. I just found a set of 3 of the same brown glass containers at a garage sale in Madison last week - $3.00!
    I would like to know more about them, like how old are they?

    The cocktail glasses are great, nice find!
