What I Found: Nov. 23

After a few weeks off it felt good to stop by a some sales over the weekend.   With the exception of the 2 paintings below, read more about those here, all items were purchased at 2 estate sales.

I love this 1960s Panasonic Radio.   It's clean as a whistle and works great! If it was blue I wouldn't think twice about keeping it.

This wood table lamp is almost as great as the gold metallic shade.  The lamp was hand made in the 60s by one of the sons of the lady whose sale we were shopping.

I will always pick up brightly colored pyrex.  Always.

And I won't shy away from picking up vintage luggage either.  I guess this means it is time to plan a weekend get-away to palm springs ;)

How great is this old chinese checkers board.  I'm thinking it will be a fun decor piece hung up in the boys room.

A jar of old buttons is always nice to have around.  Full of hidden (sparkly) gems.

This chair. THIS CHAIR!  The owner was in her 80's and it was hand carved by her grandfather. It is soooooo good.  Oh, and it was only $10.00.  Yeah, I know!! It's so good, that I will probably devote an entire post to just photos of this chair.

I love finding old Fire King mugs.  Some are super valuable, most are's a fun gamble. 

These are the 2 painting I picked up at the SD Vintage Flea Market, where I was also a vendor.   I still have piles of art waiting to be hung, but that will never stop me from buying more.

Love seeing what others find? Be sure to check out, Nifty ThriftySir Thrift a LotWe Call it Junkin


  1. wow that chair is SO amazing--and 10 bucks? Thanks for linking up to Thrifter/Maker/Fixer/Farm

  2. I've never seen that green Pyrex. Love it.
    Also, that rooster painting is great--so much color.

    1. Confession...the green bowl isn't pyrex, I just didn't want to take an additional picture :)

  3. Love the Pyrex and all the luggage. I would have bought it all too!


  4. That is one glorious haul! I like the luggage, Chinese checkerboard, and buttons the most!

  5. Some great finds I would like to have an old radio like yours and Pyrex is always a good find.

  6. It's been raining and dreary here in SC all day, and the bright colors of all your finds were a great pick-me-up! I love the Pyrex (of course) and that chair!!! oh that chair!!! I hope you do devote a whole post to it, would love to see more. Thanks so much for sharing this at the We Call It Olde Link Up! -Dawn @ We Call It

  7. LOVE each score. I try my best to avoid mugs since they can be such a slow sell but damn, they're so irresistible and small and cheap ... :)

  8. Lovely finds, after thinking long and hard I think the pink suitcase and radio are my favourites:)
