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!

You’ve been served.

Hey guys! This post is all about the fabulous servingware I’ve scored from various thrift stores over the past week. The best part? It’s all for sale!

So, I’ve visited several Goodwill stores, the Salvation Army Superstore, and a neat thrift shop called the Wise Penny that I’d never been to before. A lot of the stores were having major sales, which made the items even cheaper!

Let’s begin with my favorite buy, this beautiful serving dish made in Italy…

The colors and design are just so bold and vibrant.

Another favorite, here’s a great piece: a Celtic ceramic pitcher made in Ireland…

I love the avocado green color and the unique geometric pattern!

Next up, check out this cute creamer and teacup set. Not sure of the brand, but it definitely has a vintage vibe.

I also managed to score a couple of blue and white pieces that I absolutely adore.

The mugs remind me of something you’d find in Anthropologie, but at a fraction of the cost. And the pitcher is just so elegant.

These pretty aperitif glasses (set of 8) feature a frosted border with a silver leaf design.

They’re super tiny and dainty. Hopefully they’ll catch someone’s eye!

And finally, check out these beautiful hand painted juice glasses. I was able to pick up a set of 4!

All of these items pictured in this post are for sale in my eBay shop.  

Also, I decided to create an Etsy shop just for my vintage finds. Right now, it’s made up of home decor, scarves, and bags. Check it out here!

Today’s haul.

Apropos of my previous post, I did some serious thrifting this morning and added a bunch of new vintage/boho and vintage-inspired items to my eBay shop! I haven’t sold anything yet, but I’m hopeful.

Below are some of the items I added to my shop.

I’m excited to go to a local flea market tomorrow and potentially score some more great vintage stuff!

Have a great weekend.

Thrift n’ Flip? Sure.

Guys! Guys! I am now officially an eBay seller! I decided I may as well try to make some extra $ with all of this thrifting. Most of the items are vintage-inspired/boho home decor.

Check out my eBay seller page here!

Here are some of items that I’ve recently thrifted and am now currently selling:

I’m excited, but also nervous. Send me some good selling vibes! Also, please comment below if you’ve got any insider advice on this eBay stuff!

My first eBay purchase.

Recently, I discovered the exciting world of bidding on eBay. As mentioned in a previous post, I have been on the hunt for a mid-century ottoman. It turned out that there were quite a few mid-century ottomans for sale on eBay–most of which seemed overpriced, especially including shipping. However, I eventually found an affordable one that I liked.

I sat on it for a couple of days. Then, as if reading my mind, eBay sent me a little surprise…

Well, folks, I just couldn’t turn down this deal. The ottoman was originally priced at $49. I bid $44, and the seller accepted. Shipping was set at approx. $10, but with my $10 coupon, it cancelled out. So, I spent a total of $44 on both the item and shipping!

The ottoman arrived the other day. I’m pleased with it for the most part–it’s the right size, structurally sound, no damage.

However, it seems to me that the ottoman’s actual color differs from the color pictured on eBay. It’s got kind of a mustard/tan vibe going on, while the seller’s photos made it seem more of a creamy ivory (likely due to using a flash rather than natural light). I was a bit disappointed about this at first, but I’ve come to accept it. I think it looks good in the space.

Well, that’s all for today. Next time, I’ll post some photos of cheap school supplies I collected over the summer, as I’m in the process of setting up my classroom! 🙂
