Thrift finds for January

Only 2 treasures came home with me in January a brooch that is now in my Etsy shop. The other is the tea tin pictured above. I found myself taking pictures of the other items that tempted me in the store but did not come home with me. I found myself to be pretty restrained this month.

I have come across many of these white beaded bags in my day I always head straight for them but always leave them behind. The plastic ring was not lucite so I had no guilt with this one even though it was in mint condition...

The tea tin did come home with me since it has been almost 6 months since I have even seen a vintage tin at the thrift. I liked the perfect square shape and the plastic topper.

I was so good this month and resisted the above orange refrigerator dish as well as a yellow one (same size) I am holding out for my holy grails and so far no regrets.

Anybody else have good luck this month? I do hope February brings more treasures the tea tin didn't feed my craving for vintage.


  1. that tea tin looks so precious!! beautiful design!!! :D

  2. Zip on the vintage treasure front this month, though to be fair, I wasn't able to get out much. Still, I know from past winters that January and February can be really slow on that front. Things sometimes pick up a bit more come March - June when folks are doing their annual (or once a decade!) spring cleanings and getting rid of "old junk" (aka, vintage treasures), some of which land in thrift stores.
