Rummage Sale Haul of Awesomeness! (Pt. 1)

Oh my, it's Christmas here at ChezQT! (At least for me, anyway.) Today was our town's semi-annual rummage sale. I've blogged about these before and the posts are so photo-heavy, so I decided to break them up over two days.

First up will be kitchen ware and linens!

I've been lucky to find a bit of pink Pyrex lately- this pink gooseberry casserole (no lid) was $2. The strawberry sugar bowl is painted milk glass (maybe Hazel Atlas, I forget?) and has a repaired lid, but for 50 cents I couldn't pass it up. I saw a similar apple one the other day at a thrift store; now maybe I will have to go back and get that. The adorable crocheted pot rests were 25 cents each!  

These holiday mugs are Corningware, not Pyrex, but almost the same. I'm hoping to use them as trade bait for some Pyrex I collect. Primary or Butterprint fridgies, anyone?

I loved these straw insulated tumblers at a yard sale in town- but passed them up for $3 there. Guess they got donated to the rummage sale and cost me $1.50 this time.

This is the second vintage BBQ apron I found at this sale. I love this one even more than the first one I found in the spring. Maybe they were his-n-hers, because this one is quite a bit smaller and the ties are so dainty. Love love love the graphics on this!!

And this is the final one for today, an autumn printed tablecloth. I didn't have a fall-themed tablecloth, either and just the other day was wishing I did. Problem solved for $2.50!

Stay tuned in a couple for the clothing and miscellany!


  1. What great treasures! I adore those star insulated tumblers, we used to have an entire dinner set like that, but mom threw them away "because they were tacky"! ARG! lol

  2. OMG...You just transported me back to my grandmother's kitchen. She had that same strawberry sugar bowl, but she kept it by her sink to put her rings and her watch in while she washed dishes. I hadn't thought about that little covered bowl in years, and now I can remember every detail about it. Thanks for the wonderful memory.

    I've always loved those insulated glasses with the straw detail. Nobody in my family had them, but a girlfriend's mother did, and I thought they were the coolest thing ever. You really did make a nice haul!

  3. So great minds buy a like. I just bought similar Raffia ware cups! I also have a little strawberry just like yours. My father gave it to me when I moved out.

  4. WoooHooo! I'm jealous! Fall tablecloths are getting harder to find!

  5. I love all of these finds! I wish I had good luck finding pink Pyrex :( Hope you have a great week! :)
