Thrift Haul: Thanksgiving Scores. Cups, Plates, Cowboys & Indians!

I returned to the flea markets after a long absence last week. I might have went a little crazy. Now I have many more items to clean and tag, but they're gorgeous pieces I should have no trouble selling. This week's score has an inadvertent Thanksgiving spin!

First we have my obligatory planter purchase. These two were unique with an opening at their crotches for some (hopefully phallic!) tropicals or succulents to roost in. Cowboys aren't very Thanksgiving but I think this pair could still make fun centerpieces. I'm selling the pair for $20.00.

If you're local, I'm selling this gorgeous solid wood coffee table for $25.00. I'll put it back on Craigslist and in front of Southern Crossing Antique Mall or Treasure House today.

This is the pair of mugs on top of the table. I love the rich mahogany color, they're perfect for a morning cappuccino or tea. I'm selling the pair for $6.00.

This unique automobile themed matching thermos and cup couldn't be left behind. It was an impulse buy. I love the bright primaries and bold retro graphic design.

Selling this adorable little teapot for $7.00. More of a display piece, but it works perfectly and holds enough tea for one.

Also found this unique, I'm assuming, wooden ash tray? It has slots on the top that look perfect for holding cigarettes.

I certainly seem to have an ash tray fetish even as a staunch non-smoker. They just come in so many unique shapes. I'm selling this one for $7.00. It would make a great gift for dad.

And I also found this knife rack with four knives. I'm selling the set for $8.00. I have no information on this set, anyone have any clues?

This deer piece was in perfect shape. I try to avoid wall art these days, but couldn't leave him behind. I'm selling it for $15.00. The cute brown suitcase behind it is $8.00.

A favorite find is this set of three kitchen plaques. My aunt in Puerto Rico had two from this set hanging in her kitchen! She was missing my favorite piece from the set, the Lobster. Selling this set for $15.00, but I'm tempted to keep it for my wall.

These remind me of mod glasses but I'm not sure if they're really from the era. Anyone have any clues on this set? They're gorgeous! I'd keep them but they're doomed to break at my house. I'm selling the set for $25.00.

Everything pictured in these posts is for sale, so if you see something you love drop me a line if you'd like to buy it.

Special Note: Now I've got to get to work pricing and cleaning items for the antique mall booths and writing plenty of content for the week. I know I've been writing lots of thrifitng and reselling posts, but the intention of Thrift Core was always about sharing thrifty lifestyle posts, including gardening tips, DIYs, and recipes. Your feedback and support on these posts is appreciated, you and your feedback is what really makes Thrift Core unique and worth reading. Thank you!

  1. Ah the CB'ers thermos and glass - shade of the 70's with the Convoy movie and CB related songs of the times.

    Are the knives in the block Flint Arrowhead vanadium steel? good sellers if so!

  2. That's a positive ID on the knives, thanks for the kind heads-up on them! And everything else.

  3. Wow what a haul! :) To me the wood ashtray looks like it's in the shape of either a pipe or the bottom part of a golf club! lol

    1. That's what I was thinking, leaning toward golf club. Very manly!

  4. It's official. Yuko is the cutest cat in the world!

    1. Haha, thank you! Hmmm...need to find a way to monetize her new title ;)

  5. Oh, those planters...I find it very disconcerting that their eyes are closed, like they're "enjoying" it. Lol.

    1. And it looks like they're holding their pants down, they're suspicious. Everyone who's seen them passing through my house has the same thoughts!

  6. Those planters are hilarious! Loving the trucker glass~the graphics are great!

    1. They are! I should have got more close-ups of them!

  7. Van, I think that gold mouse you have in the background is a Freeman McFarlin mouse. It's very mid century. I had two recently but busted one in half as they break very easily. They sell fairly well online for about $20-$30.

    I love the planters!

    1. Thanks for the positive ID. I forgot to upload the photo I'd taken with its close-up.

  8. Those planters are a riot! It's been a while since I lugged in a haul of goodies from the thrift. But I'm hoping tomorrow's the day it happens...since I'm visiting a thrift I've never been to. Here's hoping!

    1. I love pillaging a virgin thrift :) Good luck finding goodies within!

  9. Replies
    1. Indeed! I hope the buyer comes and scoops him up soon, he'd be a nice in a small living room or even as a end table.

  10. I really hope you grow some cacti in those planters, like ginormous, green junk for those two gentlemen!

    1. I would have, but they're being shipped off to their new owners soon. I hope they take your advice ;)

  11. OMG, your cat looks exactly like mine, so weird ,they are really really similar o.O

  12. Funny planters! I dig the CB'er stuff for some reason - I bought a mug not to long ago. I think I used to use a CB radio when I was younger with my grandpa, but I could be imagining it.

  13. Awesome finds! Great idea to resell quality thrifts. That's what we're doing (but with clothes) at I'd love it if you'd check it out!
