Wonderful Wednesday Thrift Trip

I always make sure that I make it to the local Salvation Army on Wednesdays because Wednesday is senior discount day (yes, I know it's hard to believe, but I really do qualify for that 25% off).

Some days there's not much there, but yesterday was a great thrift day and I got some wonderful things:
A pretty 1958 tin with a plastic lid, decorated with spring flowers
Two mirrored vanity trays - one with glass bar decoration and one with a lucite frame
Two swanky swigs - daffodils & irises
I think I have to keep these!
The great buy of the day: a grass green retro salad bowl set
It's the same type as the yellow glass pitcher I got several weeks ago.
I've done some research and found out that it's called 'Blendo' and was made in the 1950s by the West Virginia Specialty Glass Company in Weston, WV

See? Some days it pays to get old!

I bet those golden butter bits were very tasty, back in the day! Love all of your finds, especially the swigs!
Happy Easter,
