Thrift Finds- Vintage Pyrex and as always Toys!!

Ok, so you probably guessed from my last few thrifty shop/ flea market posts that we collect toys.   I know that isn't much interest to most people.  But, we just can't help ourselves.  Especially, when the 80's gave us such great movies and cartoons.    This week's post isn't all about toys.  

I have been reading some about how popular vintage Pyrex is.   I remember my mother and grandmother having pieces of it.  In fact, if I dig around at my mom's, I think I could get a few pieces from her.   I really have fallen in love with the mixing bowls.   I came across a small bowl with the blue butterprint this weekend for the grand total of $1.    It isn't in the best of shape.  The pattern is a little lot faded on one side.   But, for a $1 it was a nice entry piece.

We also picked up:
some awesome Lego minifigures!    We got 2 Star Wars figures.  The Harry Potter figure is from a set called Slytherin.   The figure is from the Chamber of Secrets.     It is Ron  that you can turn into Krab.  When you take the hair off and turn the face it is Ron.  The little surfer is from series 4 of the Lego Minifigures. 
We got some loose Star Wars figures.  One was a holographic Dooku.  

And lastly,  a little robot figure for me.   I posted a picture of him.  I can't figure out what he is from.  If anyone recognizes him, please let me what he is. I know that he is something newer, but he is a perfect fit for my growing robot collection.  

Lastly, I couldn't help myself!  I picked up 2 Madonna cds for a $1 each.  In my world, there is never enough Madonna music.

  1. We love minifigures! I ostensibly buy them for my boys, but I get a kick out of them too ;-)

  2. I'm always on the lookout for Lego minifigs. I love that Harry Potter one! =)

  3. We have a house full of toys, too. Oh, and there are no little children living at home. :)

    Legos are always fun. Nice finds!
