4 1/2 reasons I can’t go back to the Thrift Store

Nickel mug day!

Does that explain it?

Oh, but this one has cute bunnies all the way around (Trend Pacific, Los Angeles)

And the one on the right is a Fire King mug…

and this one is Fine China!

Oh, you’re wondering about the 1/2 reason?

A small Holly Hobby cup!

(and I can always find a place for it)

Could you resist?

(or do I need to stay home again?! haha)

Nickle mug day - wow! I'm not much on mugs but that would tempt even me. Nice score on the white Fire King.

Barbara said...

Too much! I have thrift shops like everyone else, but I need your "eye" for spotting treasures. I can see a couple of those mugs becoming "Tiny Worlds"! Google that along with the name "Mimi Kirchner". I bought her pattern but haven't used it yet.

Love that bunny mug!! No, I wouldn't dare go there. I already have a display of coffee mugs on my wall above my mural map of the U.S. plus mugs stacked two high in the cupboard. I should have my own mug sale!! But I bet you wouldn't leave your 80 degree day to come up here for it. LOL

Susan said...

I'd be a sucker for the mugs/cups too!
XOXO

Diane said...

What a deal!!

Susie said...

Too sweet to pass up. I think our goodwill have 49 cents when half priced..but never a nickel. You did well. I used to get cups that were like new and put treats in them for my sisters on sister lunch days. Hope you are having great weather..we have rain , lots of it, too much of it. :) xoxox, Susie

5 cent mugs! Really!?! I don't think I've ever seen a sale at a thrift store quite like that. How fun.

You always find the coolest "stuff" !! Have a great day!

I never worry about too many vintage finds or other purchases -- not since I came up with the rule: For any item brought home, a similar item must be donated. Since I adopted that rule, I have no storage problems!

TexWisGirl said...

totally laughing at you. :)

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Diane another reason I know we are 'sisters', I love mugs and at a nickle each I would have bought some for sure!! Love the bunny mug :)

hugs,
Linda

It's a good thing I wasn't there! I have the same Fire King mug that came from my mom's cupboard...it my dad's favorite. Now it is my hubby's favorite! :)

J said...

This post is nothing more than a crime spree! You were "mugged" for sure, and got a "steal" on them all! Excellent choices! Each one is a beauty! You are right - I would have come home "loaded" too!

Vee said...

For a nickle? Unbelievable prices! No wonder you can't stay away...

Lorrie said...

Cute bunnies on that mug - perfect for the season!

Anonymous said...

Seriously? 0.05 cent mugs? Well, I am sorry but I would HAVE to buy some mugs and I just GOT RID of about 10 old mugs! But I can always find room for a few goodies, especially the Fire King! I have NEVER seen prices that low on mugs, never, ever.

I'd say you need more at just a nickel each. No, don't stay home. Go for it!

deb @ frugal little bungalow said...

Who could resist bunny cups around Easter ?

Sarah~Magnolia Surprise said...

Oh, gosh I'd have them all! There's a thrift store nearby that has them priced at 39c and then halves that sometimes... but nobody can beat 5c!!

Jeanne said...

Amy Jo said...

Us girls and our treasures! How could you say no to a nickel mug? I need to be banned from the goodwill and the linen section! LOL

Blessings,
Amy JO

Jean Berryessa said...

Thrift store finds? Wow, I wish I lived near a thrift store like yours.

Twyla and Lindsey said...

I like mugs and coffee cups, too! I can't resist a nice one! Thanks for visiting me today. You know I'm a Missouri girl, but if I could live anywhere else it would be Arkansas! We love going there and we are always struck by its beauty and how nice the people are. The afghan is just a giant granny stitch. Have a wonderful weekend! Twyla

Olive said...

I get it. Joe and CC have threatened to do a mug intervention on me!

Patsy said...
