Baking seemed to be the theme of this weekend's ThrHaul. I found a bag of plastic cookie cutters at Saver's for $3.19 and there were quite a few collectibles inside including the Wilton Batman set shown above. A similar set recently sold for $30. The Wilton clowns shown below were also in the bag.
I also scooped up a vintage Wilton 3-D Wedding Bell cake pan for $3.19. Already flipped it for $19.95.
As I perused the aisles of Saver's I kept thinking of an episode of American Pickers I just watched. If you haven't seen the show, you should check it out. It's on the History Channel, but I also watch it on Hulu. Anyway, in this particular episode Mike was looking through a bunch of stuff and commenting that he couldn't pay the prices because he's a "picker" and he needs to have "meat on the bone" so that he can sell his pick and still make some coin. So this was my mantra as I thrifted last weekend "meat on the bone." And it helped me pass by a nice L.L. Bean coat for $9.99 and a beautiful pair of girl's cowboy boots from Nordstrom for $14.99. Not sure if there was enough margin for me to make a buck. I'm fairly confident, however, that there was enough meat on the Nanette Lepore dress I paid $4.99 for. It goes to auction on Sunday. Will keep you posted...
I am a full-time mom and an avid thrifter. Love the yard sales, thrift shops, flea markets and occasional dumpster dives--any place to search for cheap treasures. I have also been selling on eBay under the name "Metziamama" for the past 6 years or so. You can check out my store Togs and Treasures. In my professional life, I worked as a writer, so blogging about what I love doing seemed like a logical next step.
