Thrifty Tuesday - More Vintage Easter and A Special Find!

Hit the thrifts today and didn't come home empty handed!  Always love some vintage Easter goodies and that I did find.

Flocked and flocked!  I found this big flocked Easter bunny card that is no less than 12" tall!  Inside is written, "one for the books 1964".  Hum?  Not sure what that means, but she's great and was a whopping 45 cents.  I found 2 bags of Made in Hong Kong flocked  Easter picks.  One bag with blue bunnies and the other with ducks.  Forty cents a bag!  A string of Easter egg lights for 40 cents and a turquoise divided Melmac bowl for 89 cents.  Good deals-yay!

Here are a couple things, one of which isn't vintage, but we both thought it was pretty cool.

This glass fish is made in China, not old but I like the way the glass transitioned in color and pattern and the way it feels in the palm of my hand.  I thought the colors go well with the other stuff on the kitsch shelf in the den.  Hubby ran into this beautiful framed metal worked art piece.  The reverse has a sticker that says "Beauty for the Home Sungott Art Art Studios New York".  They were a 50s 60s distributor of fancy enameled metal pictures among other things.


He appears to be a Samurai and is absolutely exquisite!  Fortunately the metal plate which is about 5" x 8 has no damage. It will require a new matte and the frame needs some work.  Another project on my list! I gladly paid $5.50 for this!

More kitsch came home with us today.  No way cute vintage Japanese Otagiri owls were going to be passed up by our resident owl fanatic!

I didn't take the tape off the creamer or clean them yet.  I think I'm going to have to build a barn out back to start housing all these vintage critters!!!!

I also found a piece of Pyrex on my wish list, I'll post my Pyrex on the Pyrex Collective on Sunday!

  3. Ahhhh, nice! Back in the day (late 1970s) I had a full set of Otagiri owls; sugar, creamer, napkin holder, mugs, ash trays, dishes, letter holder, tape dispenser, salt & pepper, and on and on... During a move in the 1990s I had damages and lost 99% of my china, crystal, all my milk glass and all my Otagiri owl collection (I had big owl collection). I save a few owls that had gotten packed in different container but rest all gone.... every time I see someone find a piece brings back happy days....
