Buy my Pyrex.

I’ve snagged several vintage Pyrex‚ĄĘ 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. ūüė¶ Thoughts?

Pyrex “Harvest Autumn Wheat” bowl

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.

A very old Pyrex measuring cup

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. ¬†ūüė¶

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!

Estate sale wins.

And that concludes my new collection of vintage goodies!

‘Til next time!

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!

‘Tis the season.

I’ve been bargain-hunting like crazy as of late, and I’ve got a lot to show for it!

Let’s start with my successful trip to the Fell’s Point Second Sunday Antique¬†Market a couple of weekends ago.

A gorgeous day. Perfect for thrifting!

For just a few bucks, I am now the proud owner of this lovely vintage decorative tin, evidently made in Germany.

I also came across a beautiful vintage Swedish tablecloth for $5, which of course I had to have. It looked a bit dingy and stained, so I asked the seller for cleaning advice. She recommended soaking the tablecloth in a mixture of Oxi Clean‚ĄĘ and dishwashing liquid. After following her instructions, I now have a vibrant and fresh tablecloth!

I also had some luck at Goodwill recently, where I¬†picked up a couple of ornate¬†brass trays/wall plates, as well as some holiday-themed Crate & Barrel‚ĄĘ nesting¬†bowls in perfect¬†condition.

Only $6 for the set!

 

Lastly, I took advantage of holiday¬†sales and braved the shopping crowds, and it was definitely worth it.¬†So many awesome deals!, However,¬†I can’t actually share most of my¬†finds, since many of them are Xmas gifts for friends and must remain secret! I did, however, pick up a couple of things for myself…

World Market earrings for less than $5!
img_4326
J. Jill bracelet for less than $10!
img_4339
Mercury glass votives at Michael’s: $2 a pop!

I’ll share my other amazing deals at some point after the holiday season. ūüôā

It’s in the family.

Last weekend my cousin Aiden visited! We spent some time with my grandmother, whose retro abode is loaded with antiques and mid-century kitsch. It’s definitely got a vintage feel.

It’s become our habit to do a bit of treasure-hunting whenever we visit our grandmother. She loves passing her old stuff down to us, and, well, we don’t really say no.

Below, Aiden models one of grandma’s gifts: a black vintage purse in nearly mint condition. We can’t quite place the logo. It’s definitely not Chanel.

She’s also sporting some very cool thrifted slacks from a San Francisco shop called The Wasteland.

During her visit, we went on several thrifting adventures (yard sale, Goodwill, flea market, etc.) in the Rockville, MD area. As can be expected, some trips were more fruitful than others. I ended up coming home with a pretty hand mirror and a brass planter. Here’s a pic of the mirror; I’m saving the brass planter for a future post on my ever-growing indoor garden. ūüôā

Only spent $3 on this pretty metal reproduction.

After returning home from my weekend at Grandma’s, I was excited to see that my new boots from American Eagle had arrived. I got these on sale for like 60% off! I think I spent around $20 on them total.

IMG_4187.JPGI’ve been wearing them nonstop, as we’ve been having some beautiful Fall weather the past week.

Enjoy your weekend! ūüôā

I couldn’t resist.

Guys. I went back to The Parisian Flea. It hasn’t even been 24 hours since I shopped there and posted about it!¬†Because their 20% off sale goes through tomorrow, and because I had no luck with yard sales this morning, I just had to pop back in and satisfy my thrifting urge.

Needless to say, I didn’t come home empty-handed.

2016-07-16 12.15.07-2

After the 20% discount, this adorable Pyrex‚ĄĘ bowl only cost $10!¬†I placed it on my Ikea kitchen cart alongside several¬†thrifted friends¬†(they tend to keep each other company). This is my first piece of vintage Pyrex‚ĄĘ and I’m really pleased with it. ‚̧

Looking forward to Artscape later today — hoping for some great deals!

Friday afternoon antiquing.

Happy Friday! I just got home from a successful visit to The Parisian Flea, a tiny yet tantalizing antique shop in the heart of Hampden. I had been craving a thrifting adventure all week, and since I had heard they were having a 20% off sale this weekend, I drove straight on over after work.

image

I walked out with two great finds, which added up to just under¬†$20¬†after the 20% discount. Both are brass decor items with beautiful detailing. The first is a small catch-all dish (it has three tiny “feet”), and the second is a larger tray, which¬†has that hammered gold look to it.

image

Above is is the small dish, which I’ve placed atop a vintage tray on my entry table.¬†It’ll make a great home for my keys and sunglasses.

Here is the larger tray. I guess it’s around 12 inches in diameter. I’ve decided it’ll hang out on top of my coffee table, ostensibly complimenting a gold and glass table sitting nearby. The¬†richness of the cherry wood coupled with bold area rug colors creates¬†a vivid¬†backdrop for this gold accent.

I’m so happy with these finds, and can’t wait for more thrifting tomorrow (yard sales!). ūüôā
