Junkin Joe Vintage and Thrifty Finds…features and a LINKY Party

It’s Friday…so it must be Junkin Joe…

You know how were were talking about how high the prices are lately in the Thrift Shops?  Well everyone has agreed that they are finding that all over the country…but this week I was really shocked…JJ found an incredible batch of goodies for you and for the price of $5.25 (we allow overage : )…sometimes!
I was totally perplexed…so you NEVER know…there is hope!
 I do have to say he was happy with himself because he knows how much you all love to see some pink.
Let’s take a peek at what he found …then some features and then of course it is time to party!
Crystal has not come in the house in a LONG time…
    she is very nicely cut…
 guess what?  She’s waterford…amazing right…$2.00!
 Here’s where the $.25 comes in…
 this was just lying on a shelf…
Joe actually had never seen one before but by it’s obvious construction he knew that it was a matchbook  cover and since  matches are basically obsolete…he knew it was a piece of vintage…so he asked…”how much”?  The man said…$.25…deal right!  Question…to clean or not to clean???
  Now for a bit of pink…
 iridescent…pearl like finish on this vintage gem…
 trimmed in gold…
all shiny and bright…
 looks like this set should be serving Marie Antionette …price tag…$3.00
Confused?  So are we?  But it does say that there is still a bargain out there somewhere and you never know when you will stumble upon it!
Now…let’s see a few of last weeks treasures!
