Put to Good Use!

This week has been fairly productive for me at the thrift shops.  Check out some of my finds:

I already showed these sweet zippers here.  I have made one really cool key chain already.

I have been looking for a good heavy duty tape dispenser for a long time so I was wicked excited to spot this for a few bucks.  Also got a Maine magnet (not vintage, but still cool to me) which is great because when I was there both times I never bought one!

I found some really great buttons that will make some cool jewelry to sell in my booth.  The ones that are outside of the bottle are my favorite.

How great will this ceramic mushroom container be as a pencil holder or some kind of organizing element?  It is so neat!  I'm a big fan of using your vintage pieces (unless they will get ruined), even if it isn't for their original purpose.

Like this Pyrex mug for example.  It doesn't hold the gallon of coffee most of the country is used to, myself included, but it would be great for storing crochet hooks!

  We use this cute t-rex jelly jar to hold Little Dudes spoons.  

We are getting closer to our move in date for the new booth!  I can't wait to get in there and try some of the great ideas that people have given me (check out these comments).  I love the internet!  So many awesome people all in one convenient location!  What could be better than that?

I'm going to try my Friends and Family Friday link up again tomorrow.

Today is Vintage Thingy Thursday so I'm going to head over to The The Colorado Lady and join the party!  Have a great day everyone!
