Yes, it's been a couple of weeks, but your ol' Uncle Veg--despite being a whole year older!--is back with some more thrifted goodies! Not a lot, mind you, but what I got is cool.
Plus, I discovered a Goodwill that I had never seen before! How exciting is that?
Enough of the preliminaries! On with the show!
1. Tupperware! These still are not the Midgets that I've been searching for, but they'll do for the time being. I just need a little something to take my Ranch Dressing to work in! I think the round-side bowls (which hold maybe a quarter-cup?) are old or oldish; On the lid it says "Tupper Seal" with a little line drawing of a seal! I had never seen that before. Flat side ones were .75 each, the others .50 each,
2, Corningware Counter Saver! Yeah, baby! I've been wanting one of these for quite some time now. I think it might be the last piece of Corningware that I don't have. I have two of the small six-inch ones, but this is the Big Kahuna. I didn't actually measure it, but it's about 11X14 maybe? Big, anyway. And clean, and chip-free. I will not use this as a cutting board--do you know what a knife on this would sound like?--but I will definitely set hot pans on it. Goodwill, $4.00.
3. Not-For-Me Tupperware! My friend Robin, who is not a thrift store shopper, nevertheless asked me to keep my beady eyes peeled for a cake carrier. I found this at the above-mentioned "new" Goodwill. Really it looks like it was never used; not a mark on it. Best thing? The price: $2.00, I know! A new one would be $35.00 (!!)
Keep checking back this week, kids--Uncle Veg is on vacation and he plans on hitting as many thrift stores as he can! Today we went to PA to check out a couple. One of the ones--new to us--that we stopped in at was St. Vincent's Thrift Store. Not St. Vincent De Paul, just a church named St. Vincent's. The didn't have a thing I wanted, but it was such a charming little shop, run by little volunteer ladies whose average age was probably 84.
