Thrill of the Hunt #100

July 13, 2020

Welcome, friends, to another fun-filled Thrill of the Hunt post where I share my latest thrifty (and usually) vintage finds with you. I can't believe that it's my 100th Thrill of the Hunt post! These particular finds were snagged up pre-Coronavirus so I'm glad I had them in my stash to share. I even have a new collection I'm excited to share so let's get started!


As I said in my last Thrill of the Hunt post, if you've followed me for any amount of time you probably know that I'm a sucker for vintage Christmas finds. Most finds are for resale in my Etsy shop, Vintage Farmhouse Love, while some of them I end up keeping for myself. Today I have one of each! I'm also going to share a special vintage gift I received from my daughter that just might become part of a new collection.

17 light angel tree top box

I couldn't believe it when I stumbled upon this vintage beauty at Goodwill. I mean, how cute is she? Vintage Christmas kitsch at its best. I had no idea if the lights worked but I bought her anyway for all of $2.99.

There's not only a cute little angel, there's tinsel and colored lights.

I've seen this little angel on Etsy and eBay, and some of them are priced at $25.00. I guess my $2.99 was a bargain. I'm hoping my husband can figure out how to fix the lights so I can light her up properly. But even if I can't, I'll still love her and be sure to find a proper place to display her this Christmas.

Santa figurine ornament lion puppy

One of my best sellers has been Santa Claus-themed Christmas ornaments. I knew when I saw this one at Goodwill it was a winner.

San Francisco Music Box Company Marjorie Sarnat Peace Christmas ornament

The word "Peace" is inscribed at the bottom. It certainly does emanate a feeling of peacefulness.

And the best part? It's a musical ornament! It was designed by Marjorie Sarnat from the San Francisco Music Box Company. It still plays three Christmas songs, albeit faintly: Jingle Bells, Santa Claus Is Coming To Town and We Wish You A Merry Christmas. I'm not sure if there's a replaceable battery or not. I didn't want to risk breaking it by trying to take it apart. Someone more familiar with these types of ornaments will hopefully know the answer.

jadeite tea cup saucer Fire-King Anchor Hocking brand

 Last Christmas I received, of all things, an Etsy gift certificate, from my oldest daughter. Being an Etsy seller myself, I truly appreciated it. I sat on it for a few months before eventually deciding on just the perfect "Christmas present" for myself. I chose this vintage Fire-King Jane Ray Jade Ite tea cup and saucer and couldn't have been happier. It was only $16.75.

I say "only" because I later found it on Replacements.com for $79.95. Exact. Same. Thing. Yay me!

It's always fun to display your collections in different ways and as part of your decor. 

vintage jadeite egg cup

Prior to acquiring the teacup and saucer I also had this vintage jadeite egg cup I bought over 20 years ago at an antique shop.


jadeite sugar bowl

In recent years I bought this sugar bowl I found at a barn sale for $3.00.

It's from Anchor-Hocking's Jane Ray Fire-King Jade Ite dinnerware collection (just like the tea cup and saucer), made somewhere between 1945 and 1963.

I love the pattern's vertical lines and curvy detailed handles.

Without the lid this sugar bowl is selling on Replacements.com for $17.99. With the lid it's going for $49.99! Odds are probably pretty low that I'll ever find the lid, but a girl can dream.

Ironically, the same daughter who bought me the Etsy gift certificate last Christmas also bought me another jadeite piece for Christmas two years ago -- a hobnail jadeite votive holder.

I clearly love this style of votive holder as I've already shared these white and pink Dollar Tree hobnail votive holders in Dollar Tree Treasures #1

Pioneer Woman jadeite creamer

Last but not least I have to mention my Wal-Mart jadeite purchases. The Pioneer Woman collection at Wal-Mart has come out with some very pretty imitation jadeite pieces -- and I picked up the creamer and sugar bowl for a song last year.

While it's technically not true jadeite, I still consider it a welcome addition to my growing jadeite collection.

Well, that's it until next time, friends!

I rarely see good buys on jadeite on Etsy, so great find! The teacups are so lovely!

Hi Kathleen, your Jade-ite pieces are wonderful. I love to find vintage items in thrift shops. I have a comment on the santa ornament. I think santa is holding a lamb, not a dog, because of the reference in the Bible of "The lamb with the lion" – "a child will lead them" most generally related to peace. The symbol is used in both Christianity and Judaism. The ornament is a wonderful piece. Thanks for sharing these items. ~ carol @ catssmith01@yahoo.com

Love the Jadeite collection! I only have 3 pieces-a new cakeplate, 2 old mixing bowls. I keep my eyes out, though! I collect small Santas and am always pleased when I find another one. My fave is from my daughter--music box. Santa with his hat in his hands kneeling in front of the Manger! I recently got a tree topper (missing one crystal that surrounds the light bulb. It didn't work; I went around the circle and pushed all the bulbs in, and it worked. So I don't know which bulb it was! There are little inexpensive gadgets called bulb testers; had a friend who used to pay my son to find the blown lights on her Christmas lights!
