I'm still working through sharing my finds from last weekend's spectacular thrift haul. In addition to the charity sales I attended, I managed to swing by a couple Goodwill's
So, check this out. It's an enamel saucepan who's interior and handles have seen better days, but I think I can give it a decent refurb. But look at the pattern. Very Pyrex Spring Blossom. No?
In fact it is remarkably similar to the Carafe which according to Corelle Corner is called green Floral and associated with Verde.
Anyway, despite it's flaws, for $5 I had to have it in my collection. Though I did debate long and hard. It is in sad shape, but since I can't even find another photo of this piece on the Internet, I think I made the right call.
In addition to the pot there was also a Spring Blossom 1 1/2 pint mixing bowl.
And a light green Verde 1 1/2pt mixing bowl, both were $1 each.
Hamden seems to be the place where I find the Wert items. This time it was a pair of trivet tiles, both were $1.
I love the imprint in the cork on the back:
At the New Haven Goodwill on Foxon I had great luck in the handbag department.
I found this leather purse for $7 which will be a good substitution for my Mini Timbuk2 Messenger that I use as a purse. I've been looking for something a bit less utilitarian to use for fancier dress occasions.
But speaking of Timbuk2, I spotted this medium sized messenger bag on another rack. It was only $8!!! These bags go for $120.00 minimum.
Hmmm, I don't think I will be bothering to pluck out the embroidery on this one. It will make a great carry-on bag anyway and I would never spend the full retail price on one.
Thanks for stopping by for another Thrift Share Monday!
