Some Thrift Store Finds

Since I shared my newest stash additions the other day, I'll go ahead and show some of my recent thrift store finds. Some for me, some for my shop. First up, this oval divided Pyrex baking dish. This one is for me, it's a pattern that I like, plus the divided part will be quite useful.

That groovy fabric that the dish is sitting on was also a find, but it' all gone already. Next, some cute sunflower mugs. I have no idea what time period these are from, as there isn't any writing to be found on them, but I like the look; so even if they don't sell, they won't go to waste.
I also found these cute vintage trays, and there are enough for me, and another set that will be for sale. These could be used as wall decor as well as their intended use. No manufacturer information on these either, so who knows when they are from.
Here's another item destined for the shop. This ceramic(I believe) serving dish from Skoal Norway. I hadn't ever heard of this brand before, but I took a chance on it. It has a pleasing retro look, and I did see a whole set of pots and pans with this pattern on Etsy.
And, a stack of some of the truly vintage fabrics I found not so long ago. Most of these still had their Woolworth's sales tags still on them. It's hard to imagine that fabric was only .47/yd at one time. It's not quilt shop quality, but it's interesting to see how fabric has changed over the years.
And how about some vintage reading to go along with the vintage fabrics? Several Simplicity how to books and some other old(ish) quilting books have made their way into my stash.
Just look at the gingers on this cover!
And a sample of some of the clothing. BTW, that's a boy in the coat on the right.
And here's a couple of pictures of the Simplicity quilting book.
That's quite a unique skirt, but I don't really see that style coming back into fashion anytime soon, but you never know...
