Thrift Stores, Yard Sales, I’m Having Fun!

I am so happy to finally come out of my deep work related hibernation and start listing stuff in my Etsy vintage shop again.  Don’t get me wrong, I am eternally grateful to have found full time employment, but it has cut into my treasure hunting time significantly.
Armed with strong coffee and my Yard Sale app, I prowled the neighborhood.  Wow, what a day!  I felt like a kid on Halloween!  So, here are the 2 boxes of stuff that I scored today.

This has to be my favorite find, a cobalt blue Cathrineholm lasagna pan

Creamcicle Casserole Etsy Listing
This was a pretty sweet find.  I love the creamcicle orange and white color of this very stylish California Pottery covered casserole dish.

Tupperware Etsy Listing
I love the lemon lime colors of these Vintage Tupperware Servalier stacking cannisters.  Bummed that the orange one had a cracked lid, so I didn't include it in the Etsy listing.

Santa Anita Ware Etsy Listing
I Found this Santa Anita Ware California Potter in its original box!  The colorway is called "Margarita Yellow"...I'll drink that!

Orange Sconce Etsy Listing
The Syroco mirror / sconce / shelf set from the weekend haul is in pretty good condition, so I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it yet.  I might list in on Etsy as-is.  I might paint it a bright, happy color like this vintage Dart sconce.  We'll see.

I’m not keeping anything from this haul, although the Husband tried to claim the Cathrinenolm lasagna pan because it matches his cobalt blue Le Creuset enameled cookware.  I listed most everything on Etsy to make room for next Saturday’s yard sale adventure.  Can’t wait to see what I can find!
