Rummage Sale Awesomeness Pt. 2!

Gosh, where has the time gone! Things have been really busy around ChezQT, and I have some catching up to do around here. I want to finish up some of the things I bought at the rummage sales and get on with more recent stuff, so stay tuned- hopefully I'll have a bit of free time soon!

I bought these darling Valentine heart candy boxes at a yard sale on the way to the rummage sale- I have been wanting some of these for a while and almost broke down and bought one at an antique store in February. I'm glad I waited because instead of $16, I paid 35 cents for both! 

I couldn't resist this Fire King swirl casserole for $4, even if there is a chip in the lid. Most of the time the lid is nowhere to be found, so that was a bonus in my book.

This was the only vintage tablecloth at the 2nd sale I went to. I didn't give it much consideration until I unfolded it and saw the signature. $2, and it was mine!

I bought this oil painting for $4; I have been buying landscape paintings for the cabin. This one is such a magnetic shade of blue; I can't stop looking at it.

And a lucite lamp for $5- I mainly bought it for the vintage silk shade, which I promptly ripped on the way home in the car. It's not too bad though, I'll just turn it toward the wall. ;) I will use the base in my daughter's room; I have another similar one that it will go with.

And because it wouldn't count as a post unless there is Pyrex, I finally found some decent Pyrex in a thrift store. These two mixing bowls were $6.99 for the pair. I already have the 402, so that will be finding a new home, but I needed the 403. It's in great condition too! I find that I really prefer the straight mixing bowls over the Cinderella style bowls, so hopefully I can find the 401 and 404 to complete this set before too long. 


  1. Lucky!! Wish I could fimd a Vera tablecloth!!

  2. Great finds! And wow, I didn't know that anything could buy anything fabulous for thirty five cents anymore.

  3. Yay for the Pyrex!! I have that full set and use it all the time. I prefer the regular mixing bowls over the Cinderella bowls too but that doesn't seem to stop me from buying them:-)


  4. Super finds! I love the heart boxes and never see them. Also think your new oil painting is fabu!

  5. Oooh, good finds! Question about the Pyrex bowls - are the princess ones the ones with the pouring lips on them? I'm almost afraid to know too much about Pyrex as it will make me want to buy even more of it :-)

    1. Yes, you are right. I think the theory is that they have a "slipper" shape, hence the "Cinderella" name. It is addicting- the more you see the more you want! ;) Next post is about Shoefest!

  6. Another fine haul! Those precious candy boxes bring back so many memories of my "just starting to date" days.

  7. I thought of you when I was posting some mid-century ads for Mother's Day - Pyrex specials (middle of the post)! http://jana-treeclimber.blogspot.com/2013/05/happy-mothers-day.html
