Thrifted Finds

Thursday saw a spot of op-shopping, and there were some bargains to be had for a grand total of $3.20. Tomorrow will see the start of the week off with more thrifting, so hopefully more treasures will find themselves a new home.
Floral saucer, 50c

Fire King mug ($2), Pyrex mug (50c).

1980 edition atlas (20c).
I'm thinking about cutting this one up.. maybe some paper bunting and gift cards.
Any other ideas for crafting with old maps?

Check out all the other thrifted treasures at Sophie's.


  1. oh I reckon my mum and dad have a copy of this book! the cover is VERY familier...envelopes...would look cool...and BADGES!!

  2. Hi. I stumble on your blog via Sophies Library Treasures. Loving all your vintage finds - I love a good op shop find. You will never believe what I picked up from the bulk verge junk collection last week. Pop on over to my blog to see

  3. Love the atlas.
    Kristine from The Painted Hive redid a coffee table recently with a map looked fab!

  4. Gorgeous pyrex mug and that atlas is a great find I've seen lots of crafts using maps. You spent the same amount as I did thrifty the other day too:) xo

  5. Old atlases uses could be endless! I have a few and have been thinking about them. Wallpaper, lampshades, dollhouse walls, matt board around photos, origami cranes made into mobiles, underclass tabletops, oh the possibilities. Look forward to seeing it all.

  6. Oooh! I love the irridescense on that FireKing mug!!

  7. Hi Zara..always love to see your treasures. What a cute little pyrex mug. How about this map project
