It's been so fun to join Colorado Lady on Vintage Thingies Thursday . There are so many wonderful blogs that share about their Vintage finds or what they have stored away in their cottages :-) I love meeting all the lovely people who love the treasure hunt as much as I do.
This past weekend I visited our local Good Will. It was a busy day, as the parking lot was full. The place was buzzing with people. I ventured to the housewares as that is usually my main stopping point. I found a blue and white tea cup, and was considering a pitcher, when I spotted these little beauties in one of the carts.
The cart was in the middle aisle and I noticed the top of the larger Flour container. I picked it up and was delighted to see there was another one underneath. It was the Sugar container. Woo-hoo happy dance. Only $2 each. I thought perhaps there may be other pieces, but there were no more in the cart. I made my way over to the pots and pans aisle and THERE IT WAS! The Coffee container! And this one was only $1. I KNOW there was another one there somewhere, because I found another lid, but I never could find the bottom piece. Yipee, what a score! I love these old containers. I remember my Mom having a grease container on her stove when I was little. It had the little insert that sifted out the junk from the grease. Goodness, did they really reuse the grease over and over. My Mom was from the depression days, so everything was reused.
Here is how these little beauties look in my kitchen :-)
I also found four more pieces of Buffalo china.
These coffee cups are so pretty with the little decoration around the rim. My Buffalo China collection is really adding up. Love that stuff.
Hope you will stop by the other VTT posts and pay a visit.
