Thrifty Finds Under Twenty and a Penpal Update.

 Hello to all of my new readers and blogging buddies! It's Thrifty Thursday again here and over at Lara's Vintage! If you aren't sure what Thrifty Thursday is: It's a link party where you show off all of your thrifty finds and goodwill goodies! Unprepared? No problem, just link up an older post of one of your finds or participate next week. Check out everyone's vintage treasures and leave lots of comments!
This week I found a bunch of gems for under $20.00 and I'm excited to show them off!
 top: Friendship Casserole from the Lovely Sandra // Avon perfume bottle $2.00 // Pyrex Colonial Mist Mixing Bowl  $5.00
bottom: Huge floral print mugs made in Japan $1.00 // One Step Polaroid Land Camera $5.00

I featured the perfume bottle and mugs in a previous post this week, check it out if you want a closer look!
I am so thrilled that I found this Polaroid camera! I was at the Flea Market on Sunday and I just kept searching and searching for that one thing that would make my thrifting complete. Finally I looked over and this cute little camera was just screaming my name. It's in working condition and still had a full film pack inside of it, not bad for $5.00! I'm really excited to buy some film for this so I can test it out. Unfortunately since this camera has no off button it drains the battery in the film pack so the on that was in it no longer works!

 Pen Pal Update!
Sandra's not only The O.G host of Thrifty Thursday, she is also my penpal! I just received my first package from her and I was thrilled to find all of these sweet little goodies!
  The Pyrex dish I showed above is from her as well as these adorable post cards!
She included this little mustard yellow purse for Marli, she absolutely loved it!

It's that time again! Let's see what goodies you found!!

This link party was created to bring together all of you thrifty bloggers! So link up with your blog post showing your recent thrifted finds!

  7. Awww, how lovely is that Friendship Casserole! I love the design and the colors. And of course, my other favorite is the Polaroid! I bought one recently, but it's just black with the lil' rainbow. (I collect, so looks count!) :] Working on my post now, better late than never, right?

    Xo,
