It's Raining Melamine and Other Fun Stuff

So...I seem to be on a Melamine streak now.  Do you ever have that happen?  You just keep finding something?

My teen daughter is getting good at vintage hunting.  I explained how to find Melamine, and she came back with these shining pink goods at a thrift.  Each piece was 49 cents!

At the same thrift I found this.  the plate was 49 cents and the bowl was $1.99. Seemed odd, but these are for my personal collection so I paid it.


Oh, this was at a different thrift.  I about jumped out of my skin since I got a bowl last week!  This stuff is so fun.  Raffia Ware by Thermo Temp.  I'm taking it camping!

This sweet picture was 99 cents

I have never seen these tiny bowls from Pyrex!  I love the pattern!  49 cents each We use this size all the time!

This huge tin isn't "really old" but it's still vintage.  It's 20 years old, and beautiful!  It's loaded with Pepsi graphics from different years.  I love it, and I scored it for 69 cents at Goodwill!  I can't believe they didn't mark it up higher since it's so big.


After finding this vintage canister and matching tin, I had to change up my outdoor cart!  They were 69 cents each too!  Whoo hoo!

Enjoy Your August!

What great finds! Love the pink melamine and the set for you is super cute. Your gas can and thermos is awesome! I have a large Coke tin like your Pepsi find. My middle daughter gave it to me for Christmas years ago when she was a teen. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
