REDNESDAY!


It's REDNESDAY over at It's A Very Cherry World, where Sue is our hostess every week! I only have two flea market finds to share this week.

First up is this bread box. I didn't find it very exciting when I saw it, especially since the lid was laying on the ground, upside down.

But when I picked up the lid and saw that there were polka dots on it, I knew I had to have it! And it was only 50 cents, so it would have been stupid not to take it home with me. It's a little beat up, but it works just great as a catchall.

And last up is this old bank, which will be a perfect addition to my patriotic decorations. Oh, and I guess the vintage tablecloth underneath qualifies as a REDnesday entry too!
If you would like to see more reds, please head over to Sue's right now!

Always great to have a catchall. Happy Rednesday!

You can't pass up a 50 cent bargain. I can see that bread box being a great catch all.
All I could think of when I saw your bank was that it will be perfect for Joan's Vintage 4th of July party next year!

Well...we wouldn't want anyone to think you are stupid so you did the right thing by spending the fifty cents...lol.
I like your new fall template...very colorful.

Now who can resist polka dots? Hello!

Ann said...

Wow, 50 cent for that cute bread basket...I'd have gladly paid that and probably more!! Also, your patriotic bank is just great.
Fondly,

Glad you mentioned your tablecloth. I knew it was vintage as I have one similar. I think all your reds are nice but the little bank is great.

Kathleen said...

That bank is a treasure!

Oh, my, do I love that bread box. It is so cute and inviting. I know you are going to really enjoy using it. Also, the bank is really cool. I think you got the find of the year...almost too good to be true. You were certainly at the right place at the right time. Congrats on 2 great buys!

Fifty cents! Girl, that's jump up and down worthy! I'm headed to the antique mall tomorrow to see if the bread box I once saw there is still waiting for my new farm kitchen! ♥

I love your items! The red is perfect!

Jacqueline said...

Okay...you did it. I'm leaving you a comment and I'm out the door to Goodwill. Forget about Who's got talent or whatever...I'm gonna go find me some red treasures!
Love you and your happy world...as always. Mailed you the Funkyjunk Junk Shop tag yesterday...I think!

Hi Carol - It's so nice to meet you. I found you through Kathleen's blog and can't wait to read through your posts. My mother had a bread box similar to the one you found.

Very creative and beautiful things you have there. I like that it's very unique as well.

Self Sagacity said...

So you bargain hunt, how fun. I just started getting into this and it is pretty addicting to find such wonderful things for a fraction of the cost. I love it. :-)

Shelley said...

Love your finds...thanks for sharing...blessings

That breadbox is a neat storage item, it would look great in a craft/sewing room. The bank is sooooo cute-love it.
Happy Redesday.

Denise Marie said...

Carol, love your blog bling!!

Love the bread box...yummy.

I sure hope you are willing to drive to the next closest BigLot for treasures. This was not MY store but had tons of treasures, better than what is at mine.

xox, DeniseMarie

Hi Carol, it was so nice of you to stop by my blog and leave a comment! Dick and Jane, I too remember them well! Do kids today have characters in their text books they will remember 50 years from now? Probably not!
Your bread box is so cute and what a steal! TFS, Nan

Sherry from Alabama said...

What fun tins! I love the tablecloth too. I enjoyed my visit here this morning. Thank you for visiting me yesterday and leaving the sweet comment.

Sherrie said...

As always, I just want all your stuff. The red is perfect for my kitchen and the pink for my bathroom. I think the word "drooling" comes to mind. Thanks for your sweet comments. All the nice and supportive comments certainly helped to make a bad day better. Thanks.

Oh my does that ever break away the old cobwebs and spark some childhood memories! My mama had a breadbox exactly like that one when I was a little chicklett growin' up on the farm. A very happy Rednesday to you!

Love the breadbox. I just picked up one myself this summer at a local thrift store....perfect for storing all of those homemade baked goods!
