Lets revel in the great bargains we find while supporting great organizations and good folks. I met husband 3 selling at a flea market. I bought some tools, stayed to visit and went to dinner with him.
That was my best find at a sale. He just had his 80th birthday. He even gets up early to make coffee and serve me coffee in bed most mornings. Its not where your born, but what you become as a grown up that matters. I collect copper items, train memorabilia for my husband and crockery.
Yes, I can identify Lenox. I do know about Lenox; have purchased as a gift. After reading all the comments, started to just leave and be silent. But then what the heck! Nobody likes being thought of as ignorant. That generalization of people is an attitude we all should work on changing. My family has been collecting Lenox forever. My mother even bought a complete set a few pieces at a time for my niece when she was only 2 years old.
Now that is a beautiful set of Moonspun by Lenox and my niece is a nurse with a family of her own. Collecting should be fun as well as finacially rewarding. As a fourth generation Floridian, many of us are very sophisticated, especially when it comes to antiques and collectibles.. So watch out at the next garage sale or flea market, you just might run into a Southerner who really knows what they are doing.
Bless your little heart. I am a Southerner and I must tell you all of the folk I know and come in contact with are very aware of Lenox because many of us own several pieces.
I had no impression that people in the south were ignorant until you said that. That was how I felt about the comment. Then they started commenting about something completely off subject. I really enjoyed the post until all the race issue. I will say when I read it I knew that she was wrong. I am from Texas and am well aware of Lenox and have been most of my 66 years.
My mother had beautiful antique Flow Blue China. She collected many brands and found it at thrift stores, antique malls and little country places. I still look for it and find it at thrift stores, where the value is not known. Thank you for this article. I love my Corning ware from the early 70s and my Pyrex from — shades of avocado green!
I am looking for a small size as I broke the pot but have the lid. I was in a Goodwill and found my Villeroy and Boch dishes — a whole set. It was a fabulous bargain!
It is rude to say such. Only the self described southerns took that meaning from the comment. I live in the South and yes Lenox is something we do know about. Definitely something I need to look into…. We started going to auctions a little over a year ago. After going several times we got to know people and wind up having a good time even if we leave with nothing. I have been a thrift shopper my entire life. I have now turned my hubby into one as well after seeing the stuff I get at great prices, plus you get to browse all the cool and neat old and new items.
Lenox china is an American bone china line. They used to have an outlet in Pennsylvania. Excellent quality, beautiful patterns. Everybody knows, we in the South, prefer Waterford! IF we choose to we can ALL take offense at an offhand comment…. Louis county for 73 years. Southerner feud is stupid and boring. Please get back to the original topics.
Frying pans by a particular mfgr. I pick up stoneware bowls whenever I see them. Southern or Northern, those folks who just donate items regardless of value are the ones we can thank for half the items in our home! I started going to auctions since the auction house was down the street from me maybe 4 years ago. Since I acquired so much and wanted to sell on Ebay I have learned a lot!
I have a good eye for things of value and my thrift store best find was a signed print by an Indian artist whose style was highly unusual. He had only been painting for 5 years when he accidentally shot himself. His name was Jerome Tiger. Now that I am back in the midwest-yeah! Maybe you donate something special to a thrift store because you no longer have an attachment to the item and someone else may appreciate it more.
As for the bargain price, the thrift store paid nothing and felt like passing the bargain along. This is exactly how I feel about it. Love, love, love thrift stores!!!
You can find their items all over the store, but those are some of my favorite things to look for. Then of course, just checking the decor area for anything really unique and fun!
Regarding Target donating items to the Good Will, Good Will actually purcheses the items by the truck full at a set price. That is why the Good Will does not discount those items for senior discounts.
Do you know how to bring back old tarnished copper? Any tips would be greatly appreciated. According to Martha Stewart, all you need is a lemon and coarse salt: If you try it, please let us know how it works! I use two things to clean tarnished copper; first, I coat the item with a thick layer of catsup. Let it stand for 15 minutes, then rinse thoroughly.
Most of the tarnish will wash right down the drain, but if necessary, the catsup application can be repeated. Apply the paste with a microfiber rag and it will clean up the last of the tarnish. Rinse and polish with a dry towel. I have a wonderful little copper watering can that belonged to my mother. Let set for at least an hour, then rinse off thoroughly. The flour is to help keep the vinegar from running off before it has done its job.
I did this to an old copper bowl with brass trim that I found. Now it looks new. School is expensive enough. I LOVE thrift stores too. I am amazed at how much good and really good china can be found there! I now have a huge…and growing collection of Pfaltsgraff Yorktown China that I use every day. Most pieces were 50 cents each at Goodwill.
Salvation Army and Habitat Restores are also great places. I was surprised how much China was at the Restore.
My latest finds have been leather skirts at Goodwill. I have done this as well! Just looked at the piece as a piece of fabric to be recycled into something else! I buy tupperware because I have an unholy talent for melting holes in it. Small appliances, like a griddle, a crock pot, and a hand mixer.
I am successful with vacuum cleaners. I bought 2 in the past 2 years which I cleaned and refurbished and they now service our home and beach place. I have the web page of an online vac parts company and have refurbished these and others from the thrifts in the past 25 years. I always search for gardening stuff and tools too. I have 2 cast iron skillets how do I get them clean,I have an elective g Ass cook top and they smoke up my kitchen.
I put them in my oven at degree but still smoked things up. I have 2 big ones and 4 small ones. For just basic cleaning , I use a little soap I know taboo! You can also use half a potato and salt! It sounds like you might have grease build up on the outside of the pans… back in the day they used to burn the pans in an outside fire campfire pit by burying them in the coals… if you have a fire pit or a BBQ grill you might try setting them on and just letting them stay until the coals cool down… wash well with dish soap and a green scratchy pad, then season as normal… hopefully this will help.
Had grease build up on the cooking surface of my favorite cookie sheet. Thank you my teenage grandson. Sprayed the entire surface, let it sit a half hour. One of my favorite cleaning supplies. And bring along a tape measure and measurements of places you want to fill up with thrift store finds window curtains, shelves, reading nook, etc.
Great ideas for what to keep eyes open for! I find lately, at least in my neck of the woods, that some independent re-sale shops are on-to us and our bargain hunting with prices for certain things getting higher and higher. But, like anyone with a talent for patience, the diamond-he-rough is out there. Keep your eyes open and be patient! Have a wonderful Holiday, everyone!! I purchased a lovely, light blue flowered Laura Ashley curtain set with valance and had the perfect use for them.
I removed the door to our bathroom in our camper we always use the facilities at the campsite and hung one curtain with a sash on the side. The other curtain was cut to make curtains for the windows and cover the valances over the windows. I love thirfting and do a lot of DIY projects so am always on the look out for something to repurpose.
Rusted cast iron griddles can be resurrected to brand new condition! Let sit for a few days for the rust to be eaten off the cast iron. Gently remove the pan from the solution.
Discard the Draino water down the drain. The pan will look brand spanking new! Now I collect them for friends. My favorite finds are Hobnail milk glass items and if its Fenton the find is like discovering pirate booty. I have collects whitemilk glass mini lamps, a frog vase and mini vases.
My ultimate finds have been my Fenton s blue milk glass cream and sugar set. Last year I found the matching cruet for 80cents at a Good Will. It was too good to be true, especially when these items are rare at thrifts stores in LA. I just started collecting milk hobnail pieces. Does this say anything about the quality of the piece? These are such great thrift store tips. Some I knew about, but many new tips. I am ready to go again.
There are no senior citizen days. I love to collect fireking glass bakeware and bowls. It has a pattern too. I even found a cake server. So funny you mentioned some of these items as I totally feel the same way! I love the old casserole dishes and the blankets are amazing! Even the ones in not so good condition can be refurbished into other things. Not always keen on cookware from the thrift but for sure I want to add things like a sifter, a colander, baking essentials like a good rolling pin and so much more!
They were made so much better back then! Thanks for the post! Rinse the cotton blankets in white vinegar. Works every time for me. I look around our Good Will from time to time and have had some great finds!! A pure silver sugar and creamer bowl was my best yet! I love buying good wine glasses! I have all different patterns. Also, I love buying homemade knitted or crocheted blankets. It pains me to see these treasures in thrift stores. I know they take such a long time to make, and it is becoming a lost art.
I have bought several over the years and have kept a few and given others to nursing homes or homeless shelters. I am a born and raised southerner I am very knowledgeable on all different styles of glassware, my husband purchased storage units for years and I have sold Lennox as well as others. Old dishes contain lead in the paint. My exact reason for not buying old beautiful bowls. My must buy item at Thrift Stores are eyeglasses.
I pay anywhere from. It is great to bring in the frames and have my own prescription put in them. The rest I sell on eBay. My family thinks I am crazy, and you can hear the disdain in their voices, for shopping at thrift store. I get a huge kick out of it and have had my own little business on eBay for the last 18 years. I also sell on Craigslist. I have bought a lot of art from thrift stores. Found a signed Christopher Bloom and his students signature he was obviously teaching. My website is not up yet, but you can find me on Instagram at texaspathfb.
Thanks for this idea, those are some great finds. When I was first out of college I was pretty good at hitting thrift shops, buying things I knew had a much higher value than what they were listed at, and then selling them on ebay.
I used to make my car payment doing that. I wonder about buying wooden cutting boards. What if someone used them for raw meat? Since you recommend not using soap agree with that!! I think a little bleach or hydrogen peroxide would take care of that if you were really nervous. This link might be helpful: I have three wonderful cats, five at one moment in time.
I look for small glassware bowls- even Crystal. Cost is usually a quarter each. All animals deserve to be loved.
One way is to keep them healthy. A little off subject, but what about the Segway. I was thrilled to add another piece to my Guardian collection! Thanks to thrifting, none of my four kids will ever need to buy Pyrex or Corningware! I love to turn them into throw pillows for the winter. I felt them in hot water then cut them into squares to make scarves and blankets.
My brother works for Goodwill and keeps his eyes open for Tupperware, Corelle, and vintage tea sets. You would be amazed at how much Corelle makes it to our local Goodwill stores. We have gotten seveal stainless steel pans this way that are in fabulous shape for a fraction of the cost of new. I love to buy useable antiques for the kitchen and agree with most of your list.
We have one and no matter how much I wash it, it has a funky BO smell. I like kitchen gadgets. The old ones last forever. The bowls are great, too, but getting hard to find.
