Thrift Haul: Playful, Colorful Goodies from a Sunday Flea Market Stroll

I love a quick stroll through the flea market on a Sunday morning. It doesn't have to take up a lot of my busy day and I can zip through and still come home with a bundle of low-priced treasures.

I took a risk on the funny dinos and loved the odd "watermelon" neon green and pink of the Peanuts comic book. I've loved the odd bright color schemes of the peanuts books released in the 70s since childhood. Selling the bag for $15, the dinos for $7 each and the little book for $3.

I found another wood grain vintage mushroom planter. I've been having good luck with anima figuirnes lately so I scooped up the cute unicorn (selling for $5), Owl ($6), and Deer on a shoe ($6).

I like to think of the mini beer mugs as shot glasses, they would be perfect on a vintage style bar, man room, or even a viking lodge! You know me, can't resist mugs or guy-stuff. The golf shoe planter was a fun find I can't wait to fill with a plant. I'm selling the little mugs for $9, big mug for $5, and the shoe planter for $7.

For a non-smoker I sure love my ash trays. This one with a vintage car was too cute to leave behind as well. I'm selling it on the blog for $7.

This cool firetruck would look nice on a shelf or desk. It's made entirely out of wood. I love my carved owl piece, too. Selling the truck and owl for $8.00 each.

And now I must get back to work, cleaning and pricing lots of vintage and switching out items in my three antique store booths!

Remember: Everything I list on these posts are for sale. E-mail me if you're interested in anything you see! I also host daily deals this blog (the haul post prices are lower than normal) and on Facebook and Twitter.

What did you find this weekend?

  1. Good haul. I love to see you pick up toys like the dinos!

    1. Thanks! I love finding them. Wish there were more toys for good prices on every hunt!

  2. I am such a sucker for those vintage blue travel cases. Love this one! The owl is really cool, too!

    1. I can never resist luggage of any kind. I thought the owl on wood was pretty groovy, too!

  3. Love that owl and we are huge Peanuts fans. Do you resell a lot of what you find?

    1. Hi Elaine, everything I buy with few exceptions is bought to resell. I try to resell everything I find as quickly as possible. But I do keep some of it for an Etsy shop I'm working on launching.

  4. Cool stuff! I agree the little wee mugs would be great shot glasses. I didn't have time to shop this weekend. Probably best, as I have no more room for dishes!

    1. I feel like I have no more "Room" for anything, but the thrifting must go on! ;)

  5. Great finds! And I never knew they'd released those books in neon, looks awesome<3

    1. They have lots of them in neon- and they are gorgeous!
