Thrift Haul: Proud to Present Robots, Mushrooms, and Groovy Galore


I really scored at the flea market this weekend! Everything was low-priced, unique, bright, and quirky: my favorite type of finds! I'd venture to say some of my favorite finds ever are in this batch. Let's take a look...


This is the cutest lamp I've ever discovered, what a treasure! I was shocked to find something this unique and fragile in perfect shape and working condition.


The cute matching skunk figurine inside is removable! I don't know how that stayed intact over the years, but I love the cutesy woodland look going on here. I'd be willing to let it go for $25.00 if you'd like it, it's perfect for a kid's room or nursery.


I love this "Plak Kard it's a bit larger (9x5) than the average post card and a thicker, foamy texture. If no one buys it for the low price of $5.00 I'm going to hang it in my kitchen above a mini-bar.


And here's the back. Very fun find!


And I love the perfect mod Don Draper desk lamp I found. Shocked to find it's in perfect working condition. Willing to sell this beauty to you for $15.00. It's a gorgeous, industrial piece.


This cute little Japanese jewelry box matches a gorgeous vintage lamp from Kyoto I keep in my bedroom. I'm tempted to keep this one next to it, but it's going in the shop for $6.50.


I like the wood grain and groovy type on this big plaque for the home.


And this lamp! I love this style of lamp and have never seen one with an owl. Does anyone know what this type of vintage lamp is called? I'll be selling this one for $20.00 on the blog once it's cleaned up.


I took a risk on this train. I love the vintage look, bright colors, and feel it will look nice sitting on a shelf as a display piece. I'm selling it for $6.50.


And speaking of toys, I got my robot fix. I've been wanting this Space Giant children's rolling luggage since I saw it at the store. Now it's mine! I'm willing to sell it for $20.00 but until someone buys it, it's going to be my personal rolling luggage for traveling. I love the two retro robots I found. The red one came with batteries and runs along the floor. Fun!


I couldn't resist the good deals and bright colors on these guys. The coloring book cover is hilarious!


I rarely find these fuzzy vintage figurines. I may do a before/after on the Koala, he needs some work. They could all use a little cleaning, too. I'm selling these all for $5.00 each if any appeal to you.


And even more figurines! There was a big sale at one of the flea market tables so I filled up on cute retro goodies. I like how the poodle is furry and the little gray raccoon has a suspect, stealthy look.


And I scooped up these rather-large owl bookends, love 'em! Yet again tempted to keep these for my huge book hoard but I'm selling them for $12.00. I may spray paint them a bright color, what do you think? Kind of nice that they came in white like this, though.


Holy hell, dogs of all sizes! The mug is standard sized to give you an idea of the size of these little guys. I'm selling the large one for $5.00 and the rest for $4.00.


Can't go wrong with a couple of cute Eagle patriotic mugs. I'm selling the pair for $6.00 on the blog.


I've never seen anything like this sword plaque. It reminds me of something a Dungeons and Dragons fan would like somehow. I'm selling it for $6.00. I have a feeling it will sell quickly int he antique mall. 


And a final favorite find is this trio of animal cross stitched yarn art. I love everything about them, the extremely retina-blasting saturated color blitz, extreme expressions, the brown background, everything! My favorite is the hippo, neon orange-red is my favorite color! These are perfect for a nursery. I'm selling the set for $30.00 on the blog. These are rather large, measuring about 16 x 16 each.

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.

    By the way, I just opened an antique booth this weekend (only 3 shelves really) - much inspired by your blog. Will chronicle my ups and downs on a brand new blog too :-)

  11. Oh I love those cross stitch animals and owl book ends. Perhaps keep the owl book ends white but spray paint them in a gloss white to freshen them up.

    1. I may spray paint them a glossy white to cover some of the chips, but I think they're already sold as-is :D

  12. They are awesome! It looks like you got a great haul! I agree about that mushroom lamp - amazing that it is in such great shape, and that it didn't lose its tenant!

    1. Indeed, but I think I may have immediately lost it's tenant while transferring it from shop to shop? Oh no, they survive decades just to get lost by me...

  13. I'm in love with the robot suitcase and the embroidery neon animal pictures, but alas I don't know where I'd put them.
    I love saving embroidery and cross stitch pieces.I always think about how much work and love goes into stuff like that.

    1. I'm a sucker for embroidery pieces too. The robot suitcase would of course, go with you on every adventure, holding your essentials ;)

      Delete
    2. So true, but I'm afraid that my four year old would lay claim and it would be filled with Legos instead of true essentials... like rum,lol.

  14. i know this is a few days late, but that owl lamp reminds me of the old tv lamps. though if you google owl tv lamp there are two main varieties that come up. i have a tv lamp that is a poodle and pug. the glowing eyes are the best!
