Buy my Pyrex.

I’ve snagged several vintage Pyrex™ pieces recently, but for some reason they’re not selling. Have a look below and comment if you’ve got any insight or advice!

I love this set of three casserole dishes (apparently the style is called “Woodland Brown”). The largest and smallest are a dark brown, while the medium-sized one is a sort of caramel shade. They’re in very good condition and all have lids, which can be rare with vintage Pyrex. I did some research to find out how much they’re going for on sites like Etsy and eBay, and priced them accordingly, but it’s been a week and the set still hasn’t sold. 😦 Thoughts?

This has a couple of small nicks/scratches, but I still figured it would sell for like, $8. No dice. Maybe it’s a seasonal thing and when it gets closer to Thanksgiving, someone will bite.

This one I was skeptical about since the red text is so faded, but I figured I could sell it for like, five bucks, by framing its condition as “vintage charm.”  Alas, no takers.  😦

I know my photos aren’t the best, but I’ve tried to make due with the poor lighting in my apartment. I really hope that’s not what’s preventing them from selling. What do you think? Comment below!

Bunz.

Just learned about a cool website called Bunz from another thrifty blogger! It’s all about bartering! See below.

So, I’ve become addicted to Bunz. If you don’t know what Bunz is, that could be a good thing. It’s so addictive, especially if you’re like me. A die hard thrifter and an inspiring zero waste life styler. Okay, so I’m not really zero waste, I wish, but I’m into simple living. That includes reducing […]

Halloween pics, as promised.

In my last post, I shared some budget-friendly items I’d acquired for my upcoming Halloween costume. The concept was punk rocker/goth girl/biker chick. I went to an early Halloween party last night, so here’s how the look turned out:

I was so happy with the make up and costume! I spent a couple of bucks on fake tats and mesh gloves from Party City, and picked up the faux nose ring from Claire’s for less than 10 bucks. Oh, and this YouTube makeup tutorial was a big inspiration!

What’s your plan for Halloween? Got a thrifty DIY costume in the works? I’d love to hear about it in the comments!  🙂

Halloween haul.

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. As a kid, I always went all out. Yet as an adult, I’ve found that I’ve become abysmally lazy when it comes to getting my act together each October. But this year is going to be different. This year, I’m going to rock it. Literally. I’ve got a party coming up soon, and I’ve decided to go as a punk rocker!

My friend and awesome hair stylist Paris loaned me some great wardrobe pieces for the costume…

…and I’ve just returned from a very successful trip to CVS, where I loaded up on some Halloween make up necessities (black and red eye makeup, false lashes, etc.), as well as some staple beauty items. Oh, and look at the savings!

I saved almost $20! And yes, I bought a bracelet from the drugstore.

I’ll head to Party City later this week to get some temporary tattoos and a fake nose ring. I seriously can’t wait to put it all together. I’ve been watching punk rock makeup tutorials on YouTube, and I’m just getting really psyched!

Here’s to a budget-friendly Halloween! 🙂

Pride.

This past Sunday’s Pride festival at Druid Hill Park was a blast! I collected a bunch of free stuff (t-shirt, buttons, stickers, etc.) from a ton of vendors.

Looking forward to hanging a couple of these goodies in my classroom when I return to school in August. ❤ 🙂
