Just some thrifted mugs from the past couple of weeks. The top two I found together for 25¢ each. B and I were driving by and decided to make a stop for him to check out books, so the mugs were a fun find. The third Py brand mug was an exciting find for $1. My sister had texted me the address of a thrift shop that recently opened where everything is $1, and I found this guy!
The last mug was found at a thrift shop next to a grocery store for 50¢. We were picking up baking supplies for brownies that B was going to bake on his own and decided to stop in. While I haven’t been doing the normal weekly thrifting with my sister in quite some time (she’s just been too busy and I miss all our fun times!) its been nice to still get little pop-ins to thrift shops now and again.
Just a few bits of treasure that I found at the thrifts in the last couple of months. I haven’t seen a lot of great Halloween stuff like in past years, but every now and again there is a great Halloween find! I love vintage Halloween treat buckets, these beauties were only 50¢ each! Such a steal! The pile of cute kids books as the top were also a great deal $1 for the lot.
On the day Molly and I hit the cake topper mother load
, we did do a little more exploring around Cumberland and back up into Pennsylvania. We have this thing for sundaes with wacky names. It all started when we saw an ice cream shop inside The Craft And Flower marketplace. They had a little ice cream shop inside that was closed but the menu board advertised a “piggy back sundae” Of course ever since we have been thinking up crazy things as to what it could be. I think it could be two smaller sundaes of your choice-one on top of another, but who knows.
Okay so I decided to do a google search for the sundae before I typed anymore of this blog entry and only two things come up, but they say the same thing. It seems a piggy back sundae is a milkshake topped with an ice cream sundae! I can’t even imagine how that is possible, but I am glad to have the mystery solved.
Anyhow, we wanted to stop for wacky ice cream sundaes on our drive home and The Igloo in Everett PA happened to be on our route. Giant ice cream sundae topped building and kooky sundae flavors, we were sold. Molly had the dirt sundae and I went for the ice cream cake sundae which seemed to have a cake flavored topping, caramel, and crumbled chocolate cake.
We also hit a few antique/flea market type places. I wanted to buy the creepy strawberry but it was $18. We did however talk ourselves into each buying a $1 goodie bag. They were decorated so nicely and we had lots of laughs joking that they might have used underwear, dirty dishes that some one just didn’t want to wash, or some other garbage. We figured $1 was worth the risk. The cashier joked that they would be bricks wrapped in tinfoil. We were so excited when we got back to the car that we opened them right away. Dirty dishes might have been better then what we did get, at least there might have been cute dishes we could of scrubbed the mold off of (I really wish I could insert a laughing until I cry emoji here).
Mine had gems like a used wallet filled with receipts, a pair of prescription glasses, some keys. There was also a few pamphlets (basically junk mail). And Molly’s wasn’t any better. We dropped off all the contents at the next thrift shop. Still it certainly was exciting!! Made me wonder though if someone had a break up and packed up the ex’s things into goodie bags to sell in their antique shop booth. I hope there isn’t a little lady named Judy hunting for her glasses and keys!
