Retro Saturday

Something to entertain you all while you scroll through the 'items' I got recently at the 'Sally Ann'. A little bit of 'retro' music (boy I am old!!) from the '70's. Loved the Bee Gees.....great dance music.

Make sure you click on the music first!....

On the way home the other day from Halifax, I ducked into the 'Sally Ann' just in case.

Sure enough I found this little trio that seemed to match!

The 'crock' on the left has no identification marks and is quite heavy. I'm using it in the kitchen for wooden utensils.

The 'cut flower' vase on the right is made by Stanford Pottery, Sebring, Ohio. I looked it up and the company stopped production in the '70's. This piece I believe is from the 1950's or '60's.

The little one in the middle is a cute little 'shaker' made in Japan. Another one to find a mate for.

The week before I saw this glass all by itself and it was pretty dirty. It looks like a retro 'banded' glass (of which I have a few) but it may not be. I haven't seen any where the bands do not go all the way around the glass. Have you.?Anyway, for 39 cents, who cares!

Enjoying the music?

Thanks for dropping by. Now get out there and see what is waiting for you at your local 'thrift' shop.

Have a great weekend!


  1. I just love your Retro! You find some of the neatest items.
    Not too many thrift shops around here. Most have closed up. Although I enjoy Goodwill.
    And I have found a new shop recently. It's the local pawnbroker! Never thought about checking them out so stopped by just on a whim. Some pretty neat stuff there.

  2. awwww a man after my own heart... me and mine go to thrift shops alot... you find the best things there. i cant tell you how many coach, fossil, and others purses i found at good will for 99 cents. but the bastards caught on and raised all their prices and now keep expensive purses locked up behind the counter. i love the little flower thingie.. although all of them are cute.

  3. ONG! I love the BeeGees and Ant Gibb to the horror of my teenage son! I have this song on my I phone! Oh,and great finds!

  4. Thanks for your comment on Bobbi's blog.This is a heavy weight to carry but I will come out of it and get on with my life.Thanks again,Gary

  5. I love the Bee Gee's. "I just gotta get a message to you... " is my fave. Great finds Jim! Time for me to go visit Goodwill... :)

  6. What a fun trip down memory lane with the Bee Gees!

  7. Now how can I scroll down to see your cool retro stuff if I'm dancing?!!! Couldn't sit still, so I let Tootie "paw" the pad for me. (wink) Love the little shaker!


  8. Love Retro Saturday...neat stuff!

  9. Ha ha, the accompanying soundtrack is a brilliant idea!

  10. Ahh the Bee Gees....takes me back to my high shchool years. Nice finds!

  11. Oh we have so much in common, love of pups, thrift stores, and The BeeGees...
    RIP Maurice!

    My dear friends, Tim and Jerry are on their way to NS right now...celebrating 25 years together!
    I can't think of a better place to be with the one you love.
