Thrift Haul: Trailer Surprises. Anchors, Dorothy Thrope, Snoopy!


Oh, there is much to photograph and document at Thrift Core headquarters. The vintage trailers I wrote about on Friday yielded the finds above, all selected with great restraint. I'm back to the thrifts but holding back and leaving behind more than I used to. My main motivation for hunting? The antique store booths needed fresh new merch. Here's what I found:


First, a favorite, these beautiful plastic anchor cups. I'm selling the set for $12.00 on the blog if anyone wants them! These and the other finds that aren't already in my Southern Crossing Antique Mall booth will go to my Etsy Shop soon.


How about some Maybe-Dorothy-Thrope glasses? Actually, these probably are not the real deal, but I feel like fans of the look would these to make the bar as sexy as Don Draper himself. Selling the whole set for $15.00.


It was love at first sight for this adorable kawaii kitty cat plaque! I love the fish that's about to chomp on the Huck Finn Kitty's tail. It's hanging in Southern Crossing Antique Mall, I'm selling it for $15.00.


I usually sells these clocks quickly, we'll see what happens! A fun mod-looking General Electric alarm clock that still works. I'm selling this piece for $10.00 if you'd like it.


Why must I be a sucker for such plaques?! I love the combination of green, yellow, and white with some  splashes of black and red. Beautiful piece! You can hang it in your home for $10.00.


This wood grain 1970s condiment set includes a salt and pepper shaker and two bigger containers, maybe for oil and vinegar or ketchup and mustard.


Something makes me feel guilty for scooping this up, but I just love the look of this beauty, and it's a nice practical piece.


And it's suitcase fetish time! This one seemed to be nearly half of my 5'3" frame, it's big, but light. I love the marbled royal blue color.


Inside there's plenty of space to hang your clothes. This would be fun for travel or storage. I like to use pieces like this to store out of season clothing in my closet. I'm selling this beast for $20.00.

Oh, and by the way, the large Snoopy piece is a huge novelty-sized birthday card. I'm selling it for $7.00 if anyone would like it, I may keep it to gift to a friend on their Birthday, it's hilarious large and fun.

Simply send an e-mail if you'd like anything you see in today's post. The prices will go up once they hit Etsy later in the day.

What have you been finding at the thrifts lately?

  1. Ooh,I love the condiment set.Is that really wood or metal painted to look like wood?
    I saw some silver rimmed glasses the other week at the thrift store and had to walk away from them because they weren't in the best condition.

    1. It's plastic painted to look like wood. One of the cups with the silver rim was in bad shape and it will be donated, the rest looked good. :)

  2. Awesome finds. I love old suitcases. They sell well for me on Etsy. So many things you can do with them to repurpose them for storage. Those silver rimmed glasses should sell well too.

  6. Hi, new follower here. I found your blog through your Etsy shop. My dad would love those anchor glasses being a retired navy sailor.

    1. Thanks for stopping by and commenting Melissa. I always write "great for the nautical lover" in anchor/ship item description but I like the idea of including, "or the retired sailor," too :)
