Junkin Joe Vintage & Thrift Finds, Features and Linky Party!

Hello one and all…it’s Friday and that can only mean one thing…
It’s time for
come on in and join the fun…we have fun finds…tons of features and then of course it is time to party!

 We start first with JJ’s finds!
Budget:  $5.00
Spent $4.99 with tax!
 This budget thing is working really well…controlling funds and clutter  : )  but he knows NEVER to leave pretty pink china behind!

Everyone loves a 
A vase waiting for flowers!

it was soooooooo dirty…eesh…so excuse our dew marks inside…

great shape…
a cool piece of memorabilia
quenching especially with a $.40 price tag…probably the cost of a full bottle during this guys prime!

Then came this very used and loved vintage cookbook…

The New Pillsbury Family Cookbook from 1975…with a NEW Microwave Chapter…

 it holds many yummy recipes…

and cool pictures…she will get cleaned up and get a place of honor in my rather large collection of cookbooks : ) not exactly “vegetarian” but still cool and it has plenty of veggie treats for us!
Now came some pretties to light up my life…
these pretties came with a price tag of $3.50…
each piece was in pristine condition…
that was after a lot of warm soap and water…
this one is just gorgeous…why so cheap for all 3???? I guess they don’t read blogs???? Don’t they know we cluster collections of things and what use to have to be “paired” works fabulously as a single!
Now this little piggy…
all cute and tiny…
 came all the way home as cute as can be…

 the best part is that he saved us some money…why?

because he is a bank and the price tag was FREE!!!

Pretty good for 5 bucks right!

  4. Happy Friday my friend!! So glad to be online this morning to get all linked up. Hope you and yours (furry friends included) have a wonderful weekend! And of course, enjoy the fall weather. :)

  5. Love the list of featured posts – it helps my failing memory to go look at something again. Send Joe on a mission to collect Coke bottles with certain bottling cities on the bottom of the bottle. Forty Cents!?! Boy, am I old! We would pay a nickel out of the short squatty machines.

  6. Thanks so much for the feature Andrea! You are such a sweetheart! Have a wonderful weekend xox

  7. Happy Friday is right! So many fun buys and so many shares…I might be late for work as I stay here and look for more treasures.

  9. Happy Junkin Joe Day! I am so happy about being able to link up this Friday!! This is a fun party and I can’t wait to get started! Thanks for being the Hostess with the Mostess!
    Blessings sweet friend,

  10. I love the coke bottle it looks like brand new! Cleaned up really nice. Old cookbooks are my favorite kind. Imagine when microwaves were introduced, I am so happy I have mine. The candlesticks sparkle brightly, what a great trio. Yes, unmatched and odd number is the best. And the piggie bank, Oh my! Joe, you do great with only five bucks!

  11. Love the candlestick holders. They would go good with my collection. lol. The flea market last week was empty because of rainy weather, this week it will be cold and rainy so hopefully I can go hunting for more treasures next weekend. I usually take 2 to 3 dollars but lately everyone wants 5 dollars so I might have to take 5. take care, Darlene

  12. :) Thanks for hosting and for all the lovely junk inspiration!

  13. I love Kelly’s fan, and oh my gosh, that luggage! I’m so disorganized this week… Next week I hope to share a few new treasures thrifted while I was away. I hope you have a great weekend, Andrea!

  14. Happy weekend, Andrea! Thanks for the features! x

  15. I saw a Coke and I smiled!! And who wouldn’t smile over a free porker!
