So, yesterday, the family stopped by Goodwill....oh, my....what's this....hubby discovers a Pyrex Cinderella bowl, "Scroll". Well, good try. It's the cream with gold. Not my favorite. Pass. Then....what do I spot. IN SOMEONE ELSE'S CART!!!! Oh, no. Not the Fire King Fruit mugs I've been hunting for forever. Mint condition. 4 of them. FOUR! I even had the nerve to go up and talk to the lady. She said...."$2 seems like alot for these." I was to eager. I said, "If you decide against them, I will take them!" Suddenly she seemed to think they were great. I hung out for awhile hoping she'd change her mind. Ahhh!
Those of you who don't thrift must think I'm nuts. But those who do, get it. Those finds are getting few and far between and I'm ready for spring! Let the hunting begin already! I've spent the winter looking over collector's guides from the library. I know my Fire King, Pyrex, McCoy, Vintage holiday collectibles, lunchboxes and thermos', toys....just to name a few. Anyone else addicted to these guides?
Well, hope you all are having better luck then I am. Here's some things I'm searching for!
