Mini Thrift Haul

This weeks thrift haul is a bit small because like I said last week, my In-Laws are visiting and I knew it was going to be hard to sneak away, which is ok because we've had a really good time.  Lots of chatting and playing with The Little Dude.  My mother-in-law brought me a diamond cocktail ring that belonged to The Husbands Grandma.  It's a lovely 50's setting, not too big and not too small with just the right amount of flash.  I love it!!!  Other than that, here is what I acquired this week.
This stationary is super fun with the ruler on the side of the giant envelope.  I haven't decided if that is going to the booth or to my neglected Etsy shop yet.  And have you guys ever heard of the card game Pit?  Is it really The World's Liveliest Game?
This cute little creamer should go pretty fast in the booth, though I'm not sure if the pretty Prolon Ware will go as quickly.  That might go onto Etsy.  
In high school and college I was always in the dark room so it was practically impossible for me to leave this vintage new in box photo easel behind.  I'm going to use it as a picture frame since I haven't been in a dark room in ages.  Sigh....
And for the coolest find this week I have a 1960's Jesus paint by number.  It's done really well and is actually very vibrant.  This photo doesn't do it justice.  While I do love PBN, I don't really collect religious art, so this will be going to the booth.  
I'll be doing the drawing this Thursday for my blog anniversary give away, so make sure you've entered HERE!
I'm joining the parties at  Sir Thrift A Lot, RemnantMod Vintage LifeThe Thrifty Groove, A Living SpaceIvy And ElephantsApron Thrift Girl, and Joyful Treasure Hunting. Have a great week everyone!


  1. Great stuff for a small haul but I really want to see that ring!

    Have a great week!


  2. I agree -- the ring sounds lovely! And I've heard of Pit, though I cannot vouch for its liveliness... ;)

  3. I'm with everyone else - I want to see the ring!

  4. Pit could be the World's Liveliest Game, actually it is a stress inducer! I like the old box, the edition I played was an orange box with pictures on it. I would love to see your ring also! Enjoy your family!

  5. Put it in the booth (the rockin' stationery!) & report back when it sells - I wanna see if stationery sets sell!

    Yeah, why in the world wouldn't you show us the ring!?

  6. I love the Jesus paint-by-number! It seems like something that would do really well on Etsy. Glad you're having fun enjoying some family time!

  7. i have Pit too, but it's an orange box, we've never played it, It's in display in the game room. I wonder if it really is the liveliest game??

  8. I'd buy that yellow Prolon. I never see yellow! ♥

  9. Paint by numbers paintings are quite interesting, and I like this one! I like the colors on it.

  10. OMG, Pit IS the liveliest game. Or most chaotic, rather. We LOVED it when I was a kid and my mom absolutely hated it because it's all about yelling and screaming, because you're trading stocks, if I remember correctly. Hm. You've made me want to try and find one to see if it's as fun as I remember!


Thanks for stopping by! Your advice, tips and comments are sincerely appreciated!!! I need all the help I can get...
