Another Wonderful Wednesday

I haven't posted in a week -- I've been busy listing things on Etsy and took a trip to Traverse City over the weekend (I'll post more on that and some sales up there later). Yesterday was Wednesday, though (Senior Discount Day at Salvation Army) and I have to tell you that Wednesdays are turning out to be some of my favorite thrift days! I got some great treasures. . .
A solid blue Pyrex casserole and a small one in the Horizon pattern10 GREAT child's hankies!
I wouldn't have even seen them if I hadn't almost been run down by a man taking a washer & dryer to the checkout, because they were tucked behind lots of vintage clothes in a walkway display.There's Sleeping Beauty, Humpty Dumpty, lions, a squirrel, a cat and a bear and 3 weekday hankies. Aren't they sweet?I was walking out the door when I saw the most lovely quilt -- it's almost all feedsack.
The tag said '1940s or 50s', but I think it might be older. I would have bought it at full price but, once again, I was rewarded for getting old and I even got my senior discount!
I love these little birdie blocksI like these dogs in the donkey carts, too

Wow! You did really well. Love all the finds. My Mum (or Mom in US) has a set of that pattern Pyrex mixing bowls that she will be passing down. Love the colour (or color in US - lol).
