THURSDAY'S THRIFT.....black scary eyes

Vintage beaded bad...goodwill $1.99.

Vintage tin trays for Fall...love the vibrant orange against the black background plus the little acorn detail...$5.00 each but these were purchased at an antique store in town.

Vintage radio that only plays AM...boo, but I love the look of it and the sound is great...$5.99 goodwill...

I am switching out my metal napkin holder for this wooden one $1.99 goodwill.  The vintage skotch jug is already on my shelf in the kitchen.  I know how to spell scotch, but this is a Skotch jug from the Hamilton company.  Should I put scotch in it? 
Love little suitcases like this.  Cute, super clean and smells good.  It came with this one and the next size up.  $5.99 for both.

Had to buy this for my mom, she loves anything scary...see where I get it from?  She scared me my entire childhood with crazy stuff like peeking out from around the dark hallway with black makeup under her eyes while I'm screaming...I can laugh now but then it was traumatizing.  Explains my fear of the dark.  Can anybody relate?  Would love to know if you experienced anything similar from your parents or siblings.

Pale pink, vintage blanket...had to have for $2.99 goodwill.
Thank you for dropping by, so nice to hear from you.  What goodies vintage or otherwise have you thrifted?

Dawn, you're my inspiration! I haven't been to my local thriftstore but I did buy a Talbots skirt for CHEAP on eBAY! Like $17 bucks including shipping. Hey! That's GOOD for me. LOL Love all of your items! That suitcase is darling. Your mom is a trip! No, my mom is as scary as me so she didn't do anything like that. But I can't watch the movie the Exorcist to this day. It scares the shit out of me. LOL

Love the trays and the Skotch jug (definitely for scotch!) and the blanket. Well shopped, Dawn! Bought a 1970s saucepan with a groovy pattern on and a retro handy hints for homemakers book today. Nothing to wear - not like me! xxx

Oh Dawn, that cooler brought back memories. My grandparents had a large one and I always thought it was the coolest thing ever.
