You'll flip over this (Status: flip clock-o-rama)

I've had a few posts with a couple of flip clocks as part of a haul and I always say "I'll show you the rest of my flip clocks some other time"; Yup, that time has come.

Views of my hometown (Status: Mid Century in the midwest)

I was visiting my hometown and didn't really find much at my usual hunting spots, so I took some pics of a few cool mid century commercial buildings and my favorite house.

Tuesday thrifting cruise; pulled in a small but tasty catch. (status: Bubba the cat- miffed)

I worked a lot last week so, again,swimming to the garage/ estate sales and thrifting had to take a back seat.  When I did hit a few thrifts, I did not find a thing and the items at the garage sales were too highly priced (example- a totally thrashed Pyrex primary color mixing bowl set that also had one wrong color bowl was priced at $45!).
Today, I took a good hard swim around 14 thrift stores and hooked a few nice pieces.

Swam around a few thrifts on Thursday; found a few things. (Status: Bubba, the cat, approved)

I haven't had much time to swim around the thrifts lately and I have not hit a garage sale because my job has been piling on the hours and I caught the flu (yuck, flu in the summer).  Any-hoo, I did find a few goodies on Thursday.  Bubba is inspecting most of them.

Get the point, Mikasa Blue Points (Status: dishin' with the Bopfish)

A couple days before I traveled to Akron I found my self in a small town  an hour south of Columbus, with time to kill.  What ever shall I do?  Thrift!  The Goodwill had a small chunk of Mikasa Blue Points which I saved from ...whatever, their mine!

C. Jere can be seen here. Status: Bubba approved

Many months ago I was out thrifting on the west end of Columbus, and having a darn disappointing day of it, until I found this little tabletop C. Jere sculpture (that is not only a sculpture).
