Lost and Found at the Thrift


You are not going to believe what I *missed by this much* at the Goodwill yesterday. Hubby warned me..."don't go into the furniture...you'll be upset.." Then he made me follow him to go look.

Ok, I know I posted the picture at the top so there's not much guesswork needed on your part.
But yes. That's a retro diner-style table. With 3 chairs. In red. It even has a leaf.

Can you see the price??

Well, let me tell you...15.99!!!!!!

And a big 'ol SOLD sign on it.


Oh well, I moved on quickly. You can't win 'em all.

I did find this at that same thrift which was nice.

The bottom stamp is kind of faint, which may be why they priced it at $4.99. It says "Made in Calif. Poppytrail". Yes it's a Metlox Poppytrail rooster cookie jar.

Seems to be fairly rare. One listing I read said that this appeared about 10 years ago in a Cookie Jar price guide and was valued at over $500!! I know I won't get that. Not in today's market and not on Ebay.

Still a fun find! You win some, you lose some.

What's your 'one that got away' story??
