Friday Finds: Show & Tell

Friday, July 2, 2010

I have thought before about doing a weekly post to show-off my recent rummage/antiquing/thrifting finds.
In school, show-and-tell was one of my favorite days, that and the coloring contest on Friday mornings in second grade.
But anyway,  here are some of my recent finds....and let me just say that last weekend when I had my get-away with my BFF we found some really good stuff. Really good.

like this vintage Fisher Price camera for $6...

clip-on earrings (they will be transformed later) and these necklaces, just $1 each! i love the cream-colored necklace, my favorite.

this super cool old-school lunch pail. can you see the birds? they are really faded but i love this pail and it was a huge bargain at $5!

this awesome fondue set that was eric's grandparents. totally 60's...and totally ME. and free to us from his aunt & uncle's rummage sale!

more jars. eeek. i know, it's a bit of  a problem really. but how cute is this old pop bottle going to be as a prop for pictures? i can't wait to use it!

Okay, that's enough for today...
Until next week!
If there is anything you have found recently that you would like to share leave me a link/message here,  I would just love to check out your treasures!

And a HAPPY, HAPPY Friday to you!
Don't you just LOVE long holiday weekends?
I do!


  1. oh! that fondue set! *sigh* i'd have totally snatched that up if i'd have found it first. or been related...
    i just spent 2 hours at my favorite thrift store. so much to sift through and so little time!

  2. i should add that the fondue set was in the original box with the recipe booklet and everything! wow! i would have paid good $$$ for it, too!

  3. Oh my goodness, how sweet! Love the new props:)

  4. I love that bird lunch pail. Way cool finds...

  5. Lucky Duck!!! I am dreaming of cheese when I see that perfect fondue set. When you are ready to break it in, let me know i have the best cheese fondue recipe! Nice rummaging!

  6. I love your finds! Do you take the kids along? I've never really done much thrifting/rummaging, but I think I need to start...
