The Crazy Suburban Mom: Thrifting SCORE! for me (Dooney for you)

Thrifting SCORE! for me (Dooney for you)

Got to show you a few more things from my thritfing SCORE! but first a word from today's cheesy sponsor, Recipe No. 59.

weird recipe cards

It's from the recipe box I got yesterday and I may try this.  I can't imagine what  margarine, hard boiled eggs, cream of chicken soup and almonds tastes like - or feels like - when eaten over these things but -

 I must know.

Recipe card 59 back

Here's the whole recipe if you must know too...

Here's the little Pyrex white cups next to my 20 ounce Starbucks Venti monster.  The little babies hold 4 ounces.  I have five of them and they have an amazing translucence.  The one on the left...  Down there, can you see? It's almost see-through.  The others aren't like that.  I've had a lot of suggestions about what these are, from yogurt cups to tumblers. 


They are lovely and oddly about the size of bathroom paper cups.  


The bottom only says, PYREX in all caps.  My camera broke so I only have phone pictures now.  I'm not sure what I will use these for - or do with them.


This glass is so heavy!  It says Anchor Hocking USA on the bottom but I'm not taking a picture this time, it's too small.  


Here it is next to a stack of my little white cups for size.  I think it might be an ice tea glass?  


These are little  Pyrex custard cups.

They say 445 on the bottom.  I have new ones but these are so much prettier, I wish I had more then three.  I love the flared tops.  I think they were made in the 1930's to 40's.  

Isn't this thing random?  It's a shaving mug put out by Prince Matchabelli.  It must have come with a soap inside because the side says refills are available.  I think it came with a brush too.

And one more thing.  I want to share my riches with you.

Not Ginger...

The black and brown all-weather Dooney and Bourke.   I got this purse at an estate sale and I had every intention to use it, it's just too small for me.  Not that it's small, it's thirteen inches across the front but look what I carry...  

I did a lot of decluttering last week and faced facts, the small - relatively speaking - bags have to go. 

So here's the rules.  To win you have to be over 18 and a subscriber to me... Someplace -  BlogTwitter  face book.    And you have to comment below at least once.  But you can comment once a day if you want (which is what about 20 entries?)

For comments: I would love to hear your second-hand shopping strategies. Do you buy everything or only go looking for one category?

Or how 'bout something completely different.  What would your Porn Star name be?  The name of your  very first pet is  your first name and your last name is the very first street you grew up on.

Mine is....

Seriously, who can beat Pussywillow Washington?  Rawr.

Or just say hi to Ginger!  She can't wait to get rid of some of these purses, they are gumming up her works.  Every place she wants to lay down there's a bag in her way....

Won't you help the poor thing and enter?

You can comment until August 31, 2011 at 9 pm eastern time.  US and Canadian subscribers only please.

I'm fascinated by your blog and your discoveries.

Lynette 8/10/11, 10:05 AM  

Tracy your so always. I love the lil 'custard' cups. Looks like they would hold sipping chocolate served from your Starbucks pitcher. Great this winter!

You know I have not been shopping for any goodies in forever...being broke sucks! lol

My stripper name? Let's borrow from 5th element....Big bada boom-boom!

Lin 8/10/11, 11:23 PM  

I don't need the purse, but I can tell ya that my porn name is "Kitty Roberts". Well, actually it would be "Kitty 74th place" but that doesn't go real well, so I used the cross street.

I love Ginger. Have I told you that???

LV 8/11/11, 4:56 PM  

Love all your finds, but would prefer having leftovers from your cooking.

Ann 8/11/11, 5:01 PM  

I would love that purse!

Mine would be:

Ann Cavalier the debonair!

Whatever! lol

Hello, I subscribed via email. Thanks for a great giveaway!

oh and porn name = Corkey Morris. Doesn't sound very sexy.

Holley Sweeps 8/12/11, 6:15 PM  

Hello! That purse is classic.

My porn star name is Sassy Oleander. But, I feel that's what my name would be in a police series set in the 70s.

Vonlipi 8/12/11, 10:22 PM  

Well, well, well looks like my porn star name would be....

Pogo Esplanade (SCARY and hilarious!)

Yep I had a dog named Pogo a mix of Dobberman and Terrier. He got run over in front of me. I think I never got over it.

My thrifting strategies? Well I do a first swoop and keep my eye opened for shapes and colors as in Pyrex. Then I make a second swoop, a more detailed one. I stuff all that seems interesting in the basket and just before paying I decide what is coming home with me!

Don't include me in the giveaway, I want to give a chance to someone else....I have a new purse of my own!

Thinking of you...

I have been making some super delicious easy biscuits, I don't know if you like biscuits BUT
freeze one stick of butter, put in a bowl 2 cups of flour, 1 Tbsp of sugar, 2 tsp of baking powder and 1 tsp of salt. GRATE (yes grate!) the frozen butter over the top of the dry. Mix it up with a whisk. Add 3/4 cup milk and stir until just combined. Knead 10 times, only 10! Roll out into a circle or square and cut with a knife or pizza roller into 8 pieces, bake at 450 for 10 minutes. Delicious!

I just love thrift stores. The best finds are the ones you aren't looking for.

I actually found your blog, cause I was searching for nj thrift stores and you came up. Love your blog and your dogs are so cute.

I found a wonderful deal on a dollhouse at a yard sale, $5 for one that in stores would cost around $150 and it was like brand new. I love yard sales and thrift stores.
Hope you are having a Terrific Tuesday!! kgkiml at yahoo dot com
