My Recent Thrift Finds

While we recover from Hurricane Irene's craziness, I will give you a peek at my recent thrift finds (excuse the crummy Blackberry camera pics):

Fondue pot w/utensils found at Johnstown, NY thrift store: $4. Folding theater seats from old Canajoharie, NY High School, found at Settler's Block Antiques, Canajoharie, NY: $200. The seats are stamped "CHS" and are engraved with old student names.

I scored the only two Designs Pyrex mixing bowls (sorry, only one shown) that were made: the 343 1 1/2 quarts and the 344 3 quarts, $18, found at the Village View Variety Shoppe, Lake Luzerne, NY.

My first Friendship Pyrex Cinderella casserole find, $20, found at the Village View Variety Shoppe,Lake Luzerne, NY.

Southern Belle embroidered dresser scarf, $3, Village View Variety Shoppe, Lake Luzerne, NY.

And the piece de resistance for the week so far: 1950s-70s chrome based barrel chair, $3, found at the same Johnstown, NY thrift store as the fondue pot.

I have lots more pics to share when I get around to capturing them. Happy Thrifting, everyone!

Really love the Pyrex. I have been told the reds and oranges can be hard to find (well around where I like anyway). Great finds! Sherry :)

$3.00! You are a good thrifter. I love the thrill of the hunt as well. Some of my favorite things have been finds.

Wonderful finds! We grew up with a fondue pot just like the one you happened upon, except in yellow, without the dark border. I still have the wood tone fondue forks with the multi colored tips that came with the set. Love that Friendship pattern, too. Great colors in that.
