Bric-à-brac


Bric-à-brac! I love that word...the thrifts have been rather dismal lately and I've come home rather empty-handed~ which isn't such a bad thing since I'm not a reseller. So I've put together a collection of household items that were thrifted in the past couple of weeks. 


I haven't been able to find much on this unique piece of pottery entitled "Fred & Ginger." I'm not sure if it has a utilitarian purpose or is strictly decorative. 
I paid $2 for the set at Sally Ann.


Once I brought them home, RJ discovered that the pieces interlock as dancing partners! So clever


The bottom is marked copyright FF~ not sure what that stands for? 
If anyone can shed some light on this piece I would love to hear from you!


Vintage Hall green and white custard ramekins. Stamped 351.
These were half off at GW! Paid $1 for the pair.


Vintage rollerskating Garfield stoneware mug marked Made in England. I thrifted this at a church rummage sale for 25 cents! It's been great for my morning coffee.


Couldn't resist this 90s WWF drinking glass by TITAN with Brutus the "BARBER" Beefcake for a quarter! You can see more of my vintage WWF finds here.


Here we have the Little Old Lady who lived in a shoe's house boot! It's stamped on the bottom but I'm unable to identify the maker's mark. It may reappear in a Christmas vignette. 

A random assortment of vintage Pyrex. 
Two 1 1/2 pint mixing bowls and a verde casserole dish sans lid! 
I have yet to find any vintage pyrex with lids but I'm half way there to completing the 400 Series of the Primary Color Mixing Bowls. I now have the yellow and blue mixing bowls
Paid $5 for the lot


I paid 50 cents for this vintage Pyrex juice container with lemon slices...unfortunately it's missing the lid. What's with all the missing lids! It looks great with my Libbey Cherry juice glasses I thrifted recently.


So there you have my assorted collection of Bric-à-brac!

Be sure to check out other thrifty finds at Sir Thrift A lot's Thriftasaurus!


Until we thrift again...

  5. I know nothing about the pottery, but they are quite unique & I like them. Always great to see some Pyrex!

    And the WWF glass is cool. I have a set of 4 Hulk Hogan, but the juice cups or something, they aren't that small. They had like 3 other wrestlers there, but I didn't buy them. I regret it to this day. They had 4 of each wrestler in mint condition.


    Thanks for linking up with Thriftasaurus!
