Vintage Thingie Thursday



Well Troy and I went to a new thrift store yesterday and got a few deals. We both saw a lot of things we would have liked to get but, wow, they were rather overpriced on so many things! Oh well, we did pick up a couple of fun items. And these items are nice little vintage finds.

This first set was a find by the Hubs! I can't believe I didn't spot it! It is an awesome Retro Chips and Dip bowl set. I love the amber glass and the texture of the glass. The little brass holder part needs a little spiffing up but, I can't wait to use this. We plan to have an "Appetizer Game Night' at the end of the month or early next month and we will be using all the items I am showing you today. Oh, and this set ran us $3.00. Not bad! This pictures came out looking a little greenish (should have taken the pictures without the cloth under) but, it is actually a really nice amber gold.






If you remember the post that I did here for VTT a while back, Troy and I were so excited to find 2 warming trays. And we love them! Well, we found 2 more. These two are not nearly as nice a quality as the others we got, but, they work and they were only $1.91 each! Once of them has a date on the back of 1974. They need to be cleaned up but, they will come in handy for the little party I mentioned above!





Make sure you head over and visit all the other awesome Vintage Thingies at Coloradolady!

  1. I love that chip and dip set! Its so aesthetically lovely! I love the design, omg - My aunt gave me a large clear chip/dip set with a metal thing - it's bigger than yours I think but not nearly as attractive!

    wow!

    Happy VTT!

  11. Love the chip and dip set. Hard to find with the metal thingy! I love the square bottom. I have been thinking about looking for some warming trays myself. If I can find a deal like that ($1.91) I will get one for sure.
