Thrift Store Find: Vintage Tupperware Mixing Bowl

Tupperware bowl

My friend Emy and I went to a local thrift store two weeks ago to look around for something that might catch our eyes. There I found this vintage Tupperware bowl in almost new condition for $3.00. I checked the bottom of the bowl and it says, "Made in USA". I bought it right away :) Here in the United States, you seldom see stuff that are made from here, seriously. 

Looking at this in my cabinet reminds me of my Tupperware stuff back home.

Thanks for visiting!

Thriftshop Finds: Wooden Salt and Pepper Shakers

Shakers :)

I've been wanting a good pair of salt and pepper shakers for a long time and I keep forgetting every time hubby and I go to WalMart. I am glad I found a beautiful pair from a thrift store in Reno. They were very new! I checked both for any scratches but found nothing. 

The price was $1.99 for both. What a screaming deal!

Thanks for visiting!

Thriftstore Finds: Small Vision Corning Ware Saucepan with Handle and with Pyrex Cover

My kitchen aid :)

I got them from my favorite thrift store in Reno last week. The saucepan was $2.99 and the cover was $1.99. I was too excited to buy them because they would make a good pair with this Large Vision saucepan  I got from a garage sale 2 weeks before. 

I think they are cute! Whatjayathink?

Garage Sale Find: Large VISION Corning Ware Saucepan with Pyrex Cover

Large VISION Corning Ware Saucepan with Pyrex cover

I was holding this at a garage sale checking inside out for some cracks or damages, when a lady  (one of the customers) told me to buy it because it is very useful in the kitchen. She said she owns the same and she's been using it for quite a long time. She said she uses hers in the oven, stove top and gas range and still in perfect shape.

I was kinda convinced but when I checked the price it was $6.00 and I didn't like it, hehehe! The lady said to try to offer a lower price to the owner. I did... for $4.00. And the owner said, "Yes, I could do that!" with a warm smile. I wanted to jump in front of her!

So there, I handed her my $5.00 bill and got a dollar back :)

I used this saucepan yesterday when hubby made "lambing" for a pasta salad. It was perfect in boiling pasta. I was a happy camper!

Thanks for dropping by. Have a good one!
