Thrifty Thursday #185

Last weekend my hubby and I were planning to get up early Saturday morning
and head 20 minutes down the road to a nearby town that was having a city-wide yard sale.
We intended to spend the morning shopping.
But Friday night, our dog broke off a toenail.
I don't know how she did it- she's a very silly and active Labrador Retriever.
It was gross and we didn't want it to get infected.
So we took her to the vet early Saturday morning.
After she got a clean bill of health, we felt better about leaving her and proceeding with our plans.

Take a look at what we found. . .

You know I looooovvvveee old globes.
I saw this beauty sitting on the back of a car along with a few other items.
I asked the young man how much he wanted for it and he said twenty dollars.
When I didn't respond to that, he asked what I wanted to pay.
I told him five dollars.
He agreed.
It's just so pretty and old- I love it!

I also love typewriters.
I know this one isn't vintage, but it still works.
I was intrigued by the color. 
The gentleman was asking $8. I offered $6 and he took it.
I'm going to use this thing for real- for journaling in my scrapbooks and maybe for typing 
on gift tags. Who knows what else?!?

This beauty was only a quarter.
 I love how old it looks.
It's going to hang on a wall, so the crack only adds to the charm.

You're probably looking at these old pans wondering why I would buy them.
Well, I got them because they're so small. I've never seen cookie sheets this size (9 1/2"x 7").
I think I may try to turn them into recipe holders. . .

I got a few more things. . . come back next week to see the rest.

Thanks for stopping by and God bless.

Show me Your ways, O Lord; 
teach me Your paths.
