Thrift Report–What is this stuff?

When I am thrifting I look for things that speak to me, things that I like and things that I would love to keep if I were a hoarder, ahem.  Make no mistake, I have no vast knowledge of vintage anything…if its cute or unique, I like it! 

So it is no surprise that sometimes I buy things that I have no idea what in the heck they are.  That was what happened this week.  The first two items listed below I am not really sure what they are.  Do you know?

I really liked the colors on this canister.

I think maybe this is a cotton ball canister.  I love the retro floral pattern.  The gold leaf around the rim of the lid is awesome had the thrift store not used tape to keep the lid on (when taking the tape off some of the gold leaf came off too…boo).

This is a 3L, Carlton Glass cookie jar.  The lid is plastic and the graphics are in mint condition.

And last but not least, this little beauty!  The etching is so pretty.  I love it!

What did you find this week?  And does anyone know what I found??

  1. This post made me laugh, because I, too, have bought things several times and had no idea what they were! :) I can't really help much, but I love the floral jar. So pretty! And I'm so sorry about the tape - it's so frustrating when that happens. (PS - Just emailed you back! :)
