Vintage Thingie Thursday: Vintage Misfit China Ware

Welcome everyone to Vintage Thingies Thursday

If you have a love for vintage things, have come to the right place. We have a really good time each and every week!!!
If you are new to this party, please take the time to
read and follow the instructions for participating in Vintage Thingies Thursday, click HERE. I try and keep things fairly simple, so please make sure you follow the instructions. Please only ONE link per week. Lastly, if you link in, LINK back to my blog, so everyone can see all of the vintage goodies on display that day. If you don't link back here, they won't know who to visit......thanks so much. Lastly, try to make an effort to visit the other participants. I know myself, I get so behind and busy, but this year, I am going to do my best to visit each week.

I have a knack of  being drawn to small little misfit or mismatched china ware when I am browsing thrift shops.

One day, while stopping by my new favorite shop, I spotted a few things on a shelf and all of them were marked .25 cents. About the time I saw them, a lady came down the same isle, looked at the little goodies and looked at the price and stated she thought they might as well throw those types of things in the trash. She proclaimed no one would want them and at .25 cents, they were not worth the tag on the junk,  stuff. She quickly moved on with her buggy........

This little kangaroo salt and pepper shaker is far from being perfect. In fact, one of his ears has been reattached. He was all alone, and I know I have talked before about bringing home orphan salt and pepper shakers. He is cute...even if he is not in perfect condition.

This is a small toothpick holder. I don't know if this is supposed to be a goat, mule or a deer, but I am going to call it a deer for all practical purposes! It is cute and tiny and small. 

I also picked up a couple of other items that were perfect in color and design for something I am planning in the future. I simply love when that happens....can't show you today, but will in a few weeks.

Not bad for less than buck!! What happened to that other lady?? Well, as luck would have it, she ended up at the counter right BEHIND me when I was paying. I could see her raised eyebrow from the corner of my eye, but I refused to look her way. Wish I would have had a penny for her thoughts!!!

Happy Vintage Thingie Thursday!!


  1. Such cute finds and such a bargain too! Thank you so much for the party. Have a happy Easter ahead dear Suzanne!

  2. A perfect example of someone's trash ALWAYS being someone else's treasure!!

    Thanks so much for the party and wishing you a Happy Easter!!


  3. I think your little finds are cute, I guess it's a good thing the other lady didn't think so, so that she left them for you :)

  4. Funny story Suzanne! To each his own in the thrifting world. Sharing my post that shows a few vintage finds, and not as vintage Tiffany tablecloth. Thanks for hosting VTT! :) Pam

  5. If you do not stay out of these places, you will need to add another room. They are cute tho.

  6. It must be a deer, so sweet. Thanks for Vintage Thingie Thursday Suzanne.


Sometimes someone says something really small, and it's like it fits into this empty space in your heart!

Thank you for stopping by and leaving your thoughts here, they really mean a lot to me!
