Thrift Share Monday: Good Books, Good Music, Good Drinks


My hunting wasn't so ambitious this weekend. I walked to one thrift store while my car was in the shop and spent two hours exploring Romona Flea Market (in the bitter Florida cold) only to leave with four records.




I use thermoses like this one to pack delicious home made vegetable soup for lunch (or going out in general, so I'm not tempted to buy fast food). $0.99 was a fair deal for this one, it's so clean and I love the print.


My favorite weekend find was this black "I Love (Heart?) Zombies" coffee mug. This Resident Evil (Games! Not the movies!) nerd does indeed love zombies. Last night I had another dream about the zombie apocalypse...


I paid $1 each for these records at the flea market. More than the $0.25 cents I usually pay at local Goodwills but I love each of these. 'Twas worth it.


These vintage "how to draw" books were recently gifted to me. I'm going to see if they sell in my antique shop booth at $5 each.


I'm a little sad to let these books go, so I thoroughly documented them before I put them up. 




What did you find this weekend?

  2. Still sounds like a fun weekend. I often walk to our local thrift when I'm trying not to use the car. I found a set of twelve vintage sherbert glasses there recently for $.50 each.

  3. That zombies mug would have been mine! When my daughter visited Haverford, their campus bookstore was selling calendars. One was a famous zombies calendar. I so wanted that! Oh, and love the thermos. My daughter is enamored with the idea of taking soup for lunch in one of those.

  4. Those drawing books should sell quickly. My father has a collection of "how to paint . . ." books, and I absolutely love them.

  5. I love the zombie mug! I would have had to grab it!
    I am a die hard Resident Evil gamer. I haven't seen the movies though, I didn't want them to ruin the game for me!

    I have to say I love the ThriftCore now.

  7. Some nice finds! I like the thermos - have seen that one in red a couple of times at thrifts, but it's always in sad shape so I haven't picked one up yet.

  8. Cristine and Alyssa: Zombie nerds unite! All this die hard zombie nerding has reminded me that my poor Resident Evil site has not been updated in a year, ouch!

    A La Modern: I've had a bit of random luck finding these thermoses in good shape!
