Thrift Finds: Animal House

Vintage Glass Pig Container, Goodwill Outlet (<$1)
My trip to Goodwill Outlet on Saturday was more fruitful in the gift department than in the "finds for myself" department. Which is actually how I prefer it, because I love shopping for the perfect gifts for the special people in my life. :) (Corny alert!)

Anyway, I was drawn to this container because it reminded me of my Grandma C. She picked a specific animal to collect little figures for each of her grandkids, and she bought me little pigs. Now whenever I see one, I think of her, and this little vintage container is especially cute. :)

Turtle Basket, Goodwill Outlet (<$1)
Another animal-themed thing I picked up on Saturday was this turtle-shaped basket. It's not the first animal-shaped basket I've thrifted, but there's just something neat about them. I found a particularly cute fish-shaped one on etsy that I would totally get if it was thrift-store cheap!

Well, it's time to go back to work after the long weekend. It went by way too fast, for sure!



  1. Good morning, Amanda! I collect pigs too, cast iron ones! Need to blog about my little collection of oinkers!

    I linked your blog to MY blog post today:) I'd really appreciate it if you'd visit my blog and become a follower.

    Hope you have a great day,

  2. Hello Amanda,
    I linked over to your blog from Cindy’s blog Retro Revival. I also love collecting and looking at old junk; the best part are the memories that are connect to so many old things. I am now following your blog.
    Smiles, Paula
