Checking out a new thrift store

Since Sarah and I had to run several errands today we decided to check out a new thrift store Susan told me about. The store is large and clean, but the prices were slightly higher than I'm used to - I think Auburn can probably get higher prices than my neck of the woods can. The only other downside was that china items were bundled together with packing tape, then priced for the bundle. (I passed up several plates because I didn't want to buy the other plates with them.) However, there was a pair of Anchor Hocking ramekins and a small glass Anchor Hocking casserole dish bundled together that I was happy to get. Steve recently broke - by accident - identical ramekins that we use that I'd found at a different thrift store, and these replaced them. There was also a small Pyrex casserole with the plastic refrigerator lid - and it was bundled with a round Pyrex casserole lid that does not go with it. (I have a small round clear glass Pyrex lid, number 681-C-33, if you need or want it, it's yours - just let me know!)

We also found this calendar plate (I use this style of plate for cakes, cookies, etc.):

And there were two Homer Laughlin restaurant china plates that I got for everyday use:

Sarah found two shirts she liked, and we called it a good trip.

i agree, that last plate is very pretty. the calendar plate is interesting, i've never seen that before. and i was just thinking the other day that i need to scope out a new (well, as new as vintage gets, haha) lid for my pyrex casserole, but i have no idea how the sizing goes with those things...

fun finds! thanks also for stopping by my blog today :-)

I've had a secret desire for ramekins for a long time. A new thrift store came to our town. I think I shall start looking! One of "me dearest" friends has a collection of vintage Pyrex: rectangle dishes in primary colors with wonderful lids. They are perfect for leftovers. But hard to find...
