A vintage telephone.  Four wooden berry boxes.  A vintage bowl and four vintage cups.  A salad dressing container.  A Robinson Ransbottom crock (which I collect).  Four empty wooden frames.

Get this...$5.00 exactly. 

I couldn't believe it. Just that crock is worth $30.  So, it settled in here.
And the  crates settled in there.  And I think I know what I'll do with the frames.  And the cups contain seeds I'm saving for next year on my window sill.
And that phone? Well, it hasn't settled in anywhere.  It's the most used item around these parts now.  He has to call Farmer Rick about haying, you see.  And she needs to call dada and the BOG. 
Remember when push button technology was an upgrade from dialing?

Yes, there may be updated models, but this phone suits them perfectly. 

Have you gotten any good thrifted deals lately?


  1. Great finds. I took the twins to a yard sale Friday where they picked out a cat that drinks water and then pees in a pink litterbox full of blue sand. Then they scoop the litterbox with a pink scoop. Its messy so it has become an out in the porch toy but they sute do love it.

  2. I used to LOVE playing with phones when I was little! I bet it's so fun for the kids. I really like the wooden berry boxes and the pretty vintage bowl. I am a sucker for vintage bowls and plates! It's hard to pass them up when they are usually so cheap as well.

  3. What a great idea to get the phone for the kiddos. Too cute! Love the crock and strawberry baskets you scored. My mother-in-law had a bunch of the wooden baskets in her basement when she passed and I scooped them right up. :) You always seem to find great treasures.

  4. How do you come across all these wonderful scores?! You are one thrifty miss!

    I LOVE the berry containers - so darn cute!

    Wishing you a lovely day.
