Welcome to Thrill of the Hunt #41 where I share some of my recent thrift store finds with you! I hope that my thrifting sagas provide you with inspiration to get out there and look for some of your own thrill of the hunt finds! So are you ready? Let's go!
Okay so no surprises here. You all know I've become a gumball machine junkie. So when I saw this LARGE gumball machine at Goodwill for a few bucks you know I had to pick it up. To what end is anybody's guess. Probably another Christmas snow globe but maybe I'll just go all crazy and fill it with nuts, who knows? I think my husband would love that.
Now this one's a complete mystery. I picked it up at Goodwill for 50 cents, thinking it had to have some story behind it. The white you see on top is just a remnant of the price tag (enter Goo Gone).
The fact that it had this tag on it made me think it was probably vintage and probably a collectible.
But after a little research I have come up empty-handed as to what it is. I feel like I should devote an entire post to it like my friend Tuula at Thrifty Rebel Vintage who has a series going entitled "What the Heck Is It?"
If any of you have any ideas I'd love to hear them. I was thinking maybe it's a container (military issued maybe?) for a deck of cards, or maybe a pack of cigarettes? Otherwise I'm stumped.
Okay now these are just plain fun. I started collecting vintage cake plates when I thought we were going to be moving. I had a whole kitschy plate wall planned out. Good news: we never moved. Bad news: I'm stuck with a bunch of state plates. So why not add to the collection?
We have Niagra Falls.
As well as Utah.
And Washington, D.C. I've been to Niagra Falls, Washington State and Washington D.C, (I lived there when I was going to law school.) So some of these have a bit of sentimental value for me. Add to them at least 5 others I've accumulated and I'd say I have quite a collection at this point. Now if I could just find a wall big enough to put them on......
Well, that's it until next time!
I hope you enjoyed reading
