Second Time Around Tuesday

Today is Second Time Around Tuesday at "A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words", where bloggers can show off their items found at thrift stores, yard sales, flea markets, and junk stores.

I just couldn't leave these great items at the thrift store when I saw them on Saturday!

Vintage Fire King Anchor Hocking mugs and Fire King Anchor Hocking Milk Glass bowl with the "wheat" design. Total cost: $1.45.



Vintage Tupperware in new condition. If you look closely you can see that there are two green colanders stacked inside each other. Also, a green bowl with domed lid, a yellow canister, and a white container for liquids. These items bought new are very expensive! All of this cost $5.50. I haven't been to a Tupperware party in years, but even back in the 70s and 80s You couldn't buy much for $5.50.



I plan to share the tupperware with my daughter. I don't think she owns a single piece of tupperware, although I do think she attended some parties with me back in the eighties.

Good deals, Debbie. The green bowl with domed lid is for a head of lettuce. When new, it came with an insert for the bottom about 2 1/2 inches across with a spike in the center which was to insert into the lettuce core. It really keeps lettuce fresh and out of water at the bottom. Did the insert survive? I have two, one a little larger than the other. I love them.

Oops! I forgot. The tall yellow Tupperware container is part of a canister set. You can tell that I have had (and still have) a lot of Tupperware.

You are so lucky to find these fun vintage items. Did we ever think Tupperware would be vintage. Not me. The fire king is hard for me to get excited about. I remember it too well. LOL. I am aging myself.

Tupperware is durable. My mom used that yellow canister set all the time in the 70s, and still does.

I love vintage dishes too. Makes me feel nostalgic when I see them. Great finds! I have, and still use, the green colander bowl.

I use to sell Tupperware...and now if I find it even if it broke I buy it. People don't realize Tupperware has a lifetime warranty. You can always find a consultant and get a replacement for a broken piece. Even if they don't carry it they will replace it with something!
Great finds...love teh mugs!
