Fab Finds Friday: February Pickin's

Wowza. Hard to believe that next Friday marks the start of a new month. March? What?! Seeing as this is the last Friday in February to be had, I thought a Fab Finds Friday was in order.



As you can see from the tags, these two bottles were $6.50 total: the old rubbing alcohol bottle for $3.50, and the plain medicine bottle for $3. I discovered them in a previously unknown "antiques" section of a local thrift store, along with these three mercury glass ornaments which the owner generously gave me for free!


At the same store, I also found this cute little "Bake King" loaf pan for $3.50.



And I couldn't resist a blue mason jar for just $5.


This large flour tin was also $5--loving the bramble-ish pattern!


I know that Christmas is over, but I keep hitting the vintage ornament jackpot, as evidenced by these two boxes of red Shiny Brites! The boxes alone are so cute--just check out those graphics! (Edit: Oops, forgot to share the price of these the first time! They were $4.50 per box!)




I got this little wooden well thing for $1.49. I think it'd be so cute at an engagement party or wedding with a sign that says"Well-Wishes for the Happy Couple" or something to that effect. One of my best friends is getting married this summer, so maybe I'll get to use it then :)


I picked up two bright orange pieces you might've noticed in my vintage displays shared earlier this week: an Isaac Mizrahi plate for $0.99 (which I added to my shelf on my happy wall):


And a little Gemco juicer for $0.69. I couldn't resist the orange design on there:


This trio of squat shot glasses was too cool to pass up at $0.69 apiece. I am so dorky, but the crests on them kind of reminded me of Harry Potter. So of course I had to have them!


Last up, I snatched this pair of wooden votive holders for $0.99 each. I like the sort of tree pattern they have going on. They had a new home in the living room that I'll share soon!


Here's hoping March continues the bountiful thrift trend and also brings awesome garage & estate sales with it!

    1. Thank you! I'm actually using it for storage, but not for flour--it holds cans of cat food! Much prettier than their original boxes :) I do love the idea of putting a plant in there, though...how cute would it be to have a little succulent garden in a vintage tin collection?
