Recap: Summer Thrifting

Over the summer I fed my thrifting habit often, and it was completely justified since I was moving. I scoured thrift shops, salvation armies, and estate sales with a tremendous amount of success. Without further ado, I introduce my much loved thrifted pieces!

A vintage Pyrex (swoon) bowl is great for mixing dry ingredients for quick breads and cookies. I picked this baby up at an estate sale in the greater Wilkes-Barre area.

Serving bowls from the same estate sale.

The retro cooler on the left was spotted atop a box marked free on the side of a country road- sweet. The cooler on the right was Ryan's grandpas. They are now sitting above our cabinits keeping our place looking cool. (I know- bad cooler joke.)

This sweet little Pyrex was found in a Center City Good Will.

The town where I grew up, Hawley, former claim to fame was the coal industry and factories. The coal passed through town on route to New York City, and many wealthy coal tycoons made Hawley their country home. Their homes still decorate Hudson Street, and one in particular has held a special place in my heart. Over the summer that gorgeous house has a yard sale. I snagged this funky vintage rag rug.

Two pretty milk glass ash trays for a dirty little habbit.

ummm, i believe schmem has started a blog. i believe this do to the fact that her away message says she's "blogging and listening to music." i'm sure that is one blog you would love to haunt. by the way...i there was definitely a reference to "mama mia" and how much it reminded her of her own life.
