Friday Thrifty Treasures Week 58 Vintage Finds

Friday Thrifty Treasures never got off the ground last Friday due to circumstances beyond my control but it’s back this week.

Title #58

Now let me show you what I’ve found lately.

Tiffany Style Lamp

My heart went pitter patter when I saw this little Tiffany styled lamp.   It isn’t marked so I’m not sure how old it is.  I had a similar one back in the 1970’s so it’s probably from that time frame.  I may use it as a night-light in my sun room but it may go to the booth.  It’s still up in the air.

McCoy Green Planter

You’ve seen a green McCoy planter like this one here at the Blue Willow House before.

McCoy Green Planter

  I found one like it earlier this year in TTT Week 31 Vintage Finds.   It is possible that the two will appear together in a Christmas vignette with one going to the booth in the new year.

Bridge Tablecloth Napkins

Do you remember your mom and her friends playing Bridge on card tables?  When I saw this pristine white square tablecloth with four napkins still in its original packaging I remembered that era back in the 1960’s.   It has very pretty yellow embroidered flowers and edging.   It is lovely and I am hoping to find it a new home.

Boyds Farm Wagon

When I found this Boyds Farm wagon the front wheels and axle were not attached.  After a bit of repair work it is good as new and absolutely adorable.  Since Boyds still sells a version of this wagon it probably isn’t very old but will make a charming display piece in the booth until it sells.

Six Little Pumpkins

A bag of assorted pumpkins caught my eye and for less than $2 I got six.  Two of the pumpkins are grapevine, one fabric,  3 are thin wood strips dyed orange.  They aren’t vintage but definitely thrifty.

Vin Blanc

I’ve admired the blue and white French mustard pots for a while so when I found two at an excellent price there was no passing them by.  These charming vintage mustard pots held famous Grey Poupon mustard from Dijon France.


The glazed ceramic pots have a transferware design featuring a French crown and Fleur de Lys in blue.  The bottom of the little pots have the Digoin Sarreguemines maker’s marks.

Harmony House Creamer & Gravy

You know ironstone always garners my attention.  Well with two small pieces sitting together I had to check them out.  One is a gravy boat and the other an open sugar bowl.  They are Harmony House Federalist made in Japan.  The sugar bowl is going to the booth and I’m going to use the gravy boat for a while.

Bushel Basket

One of my favorite thrift stores is kind of messy.  I have to be in the right mood to go there but it usually doesn’t disappoint.  Monday is half price day and my favorite time to go there.  When I was there recently I spied a well used bushel basket.  Wouldn’t it be perfect to hold a big old Christmas tree (the kind I don’t have any more) but it looks just as good filled with a bunch of pumpkins.  This basket booth bound when I start Christmas decorating there.

Don’t forget there is still time to link up your vintage posts at Vintage Charm until Monday November 2nd. at 8:00 am EST.

McCoy time two

    Love those McCoy Planters. I have several I found in a nice little vintage store in Bowling Green, KY when we lived there. Love those McCoy goodies. Have nice little collection of them and do use them. Why just store them, figured might as well use them. I’m not getting any younger. I had buffet hutch in house in KY but now don’t have as much room to have things out. Also had a great home made Hoosier I got in KY. There’s a wonderful little town, north east of BG called SMith’s Grove with lots of antique/vintage stores and oh the stuff. THey’d have seasonal sales outside in yards. The stores are old houses turned into stores with big back yards. I was alone alot Hubs on road trucking) so I’d go there to look around, talk with store keepers, buy little things. Loved that place, had to get rid of some of my treasures and could kick myself. Had an aqua scale, see what I mean? Still have some things but not what I miss most.
    We live few miles west of Grand Junction, CO now but things like you find just aren’t around. And if they are, are way too expensive, for me on my SS budget anyway. It’s expensive to live here. Well enuf whining better get supper for hubs. Tonight has shows we like to watch. Got rid of Dish over year ago and haven’t really missed it, (except for some shows on HGTV). Nice to have that little extra money rather than paying for shows we never watched. We got an antenna that plugs into tv and hang it on ceiling, get all network shows and some others that we enjoy, all free.
    Hope you have great weekend

    • Cable and dish is so expensive. You have the right idea in getting rid of it. I have been thinking about doing the same thing because with an antenna and internet you can get more shows than you can watch. Have a great week.

  2. Love the McCoy planter, reminds me I have a box somewhere with a bunch…I should did them out and use them or let them go. Great idea for the remotes…I know they are here, somewhere…lol. Thanks, Sandi

    • When I threw the remotes in the planter to make the photo it never dawned on me that it was such a good idea. Now I’m on the hunt for a neutral colored planter to use in the family room all the time.

  3. You sure found some pretty treasures this week. Hard to pick a favorite, it has to be the bushel basket. Thanks so much for sharing at Vintage Inspiration Party.

  4. Love your McCoy pottery planter! I have a small collection of McCoy. I also have that same Grey Poupon mustard bottle, love it! Fun post, new follower!


  5. I love your finds, you really got lucky!! Love the wagon!!

    Love seeing what you find! The McCoy planters will be fun for Christmas. I love the tablecloth set and the cute squirrel baking mold. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  7. Sharon, you find the best little ojets d’ Art. I love all of these, but especially Tiffany-esque lamp. Just gorgeous. Thanks for sharing at Five Star Frou-Frou last week. Mimi xxx
