Weekend Deals

The third Sunday of every summer month a local antique mall has a huge out door flea market. I almost missed it this month but we were able to take Matt’s parents and make a quick run.

As we were getting ready to leave I was disappointed because I hadn’t found anything and then I spotted the yellow fairy light in the distance. I’ve seen a few others in not so great colors for anywhere from twenty to eighty dollars so priced at four bucks, this was a steal!

Matt’s mom purchased a huge set of these vintage tumblers and a pitcher which she so kindly gave me five of. I’ve been craving a set of my own vintage 50’s tumblers since The Thrift Shop Romantic highlighted her set back in January.

That’s the thing about thrift shopping if you just wait sooner or later you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for.

Now that you've seen what I picked up this weekend check out some other great finds at Southern Hospitality - she has a Mr.Linky going.

Great finds. I had a set of those aluminum tumblers many years ago - don't remember what I did with them.

Oooooh... I grew up drinking from an old set of those aluminum cups! I remember the bright colors- my favorite was the blue one and used to fight w/my brothers to get it. LOL :-) Sue

Hi Meg
my mom bought a set of 8 aluminum glasses and a pitcher at least 20 years ago. I know she still has them but does not use them - wonder if I can talk her out of them :)

I love those aluminum cups! You will never drink anything colder in your life, than something out of one of those! And if you get tired of them, they sell really well on Ebay...
