I finally made my way back to a thrift store I found last January on my birthday day out. It is called Rochester Greenovation. It is a warehouse chock full of vintage and antique items.
I went back for the $5 a box deal.
They provide the box and you fill it from a designated area and pay $5 for it all.
This trip turned out to be a thrifty TIN kind of day with a few other great items thrown in ............... the box, that is!
This is a nice, weighty Kreamer #62 jello, pudding or cake mold. It is so unique that I had to pick it up. It has a great vintage patina with three crisscross designs on the top. I think it is from the 1940's or earlier.
Everywhere I looked there were tin baking molds. I grabbed them all and filled the box.
I had never seen a tin juicer and so I had to add it in too.
One of my favorite pans to bake in is a bundt pan. I just made a Golden Eggnog Cake with a dried cranberry and pecan filling in one to freeze for my birthday later this month (I may have to post the recipe for that one after I try it!). I just love the size and design on this one.
I was surprised to find a Pelouze Portion Controller scale in the fill-a-box section. It is rusty, the face is a little cloudy with a few scratches and it is not adjustable back to 0 but it works and it is perfect!
This vintage red metal toy truck thingy caught my eye and I couldn't believe my eyes at the original price on it and the fact that it was put in the fill-a-box section. What else could I do but fill the box with it!
It looks like it is an attachment to a larger toy truck (any ideas?) but it is red, rusty and appeals to my vintage self. It may or may not be a keeper!
The few other things I found include a red clock, a red double wig case and a porcelain frame.
I fell for a vintage clock this summer at an estate sale and ever since then I have seen them everywhere. My collection has grown from that first one to seven vintage clocks, all unique and wonderful in their own way. This red one was from a vendor there that had to be called for a price. I was willing to pay just about anything to have it. For $7 it is a keeper!
This 1960's wig/hat case is an Everbest Originals, from Hollywood Florida. It caught my eye, again, for the red color! I picture an actress stepping from her red sports car with this case on her arm, running into the TV studio to be made up for the big screen. I am working on getting it listed for all the glamorous girls out there!
I tucked this sweet little frame into the box thinking it would be perfect for that first picture of a newborn baby. It is white with peach and yellow so it is suited for either a boy or girl.
It has been slow pickin' in these parts over the winter but I think I have enough to keep myself busy till the weather breaks.
I am dreaming of outdoor flea markets, antique shows and garage sales already!
