A Little Thrifted Fun
I was out running a few errands yesterday and when in town, you stop at the Goodwill.
I found a few things. The picture is from the Sally Ann, the rest, Goodwill. A stainless steel travel soap dish is on the left.
The little mouth blown glass elephant is for Aaron. The sweet Dutch girl was made in Germany and was either a pin cushion or toothpick holder. The little oval dish is German and rather looks like it is covered in barnacles, which is why I bought it.
A kitschy egg separator chicken and some neat old measuring cups. I love that they say "Mary Ann's Accurate Measure, E Katzinger Co. Chicago" on the bottom.
A funny plaster bank and one of those oft seen plastic figures. This one is rather sweet. Not too visible is a large funky flower pin to add to my collection.
This was a great surprise! I got excited when I read the box and inside are what we all likely have in our own cookie cutter collections.
It is marked, "Made in Canada." I looked to see if I could find more info online but only one other like this came up. Very cool to see the cutters in their original box. They look as though they have never even been removed from the box.
This was another lovely surprise. A sweet little composition souvenir doll, from Mexico.
Everything was also half price too. Bonus!
