The Hunter Sings Tonight

Last night, I had a dream.


A dream that I was hauling one of my friends into Goodwill by her wrist and dragging her to the 3rd row shelf's for some reason. ~END~

Well I get up this morning, and before the alarm goes off im already singing "Simon Zealotes" in my head (if only I could sound as good as I do in my mind, haha!) get dressed go to school, sit through Spanish, test in Psychology, then I see my friend I saw in the dream... we walk to Goodwill and I drag her to the 3rd row and there sitting fine and pretty is the "hunters bounty".






First I find this set of 4 counter containers, in green with the little gold stems on them. I think they may be to 60's for my 1940's green kitchen, but well see.



I was TOTALLY satisfied and thanked the 'Retro Gods', but then it was "green sticker day" so I could pick another item... I search and search and my friend is hunting too. (I was hoping there would be a Jesus Christ Superstar Album in the records...but no) after search a good 15 min, the wooden leaf bowl becomes my second green "free-be" and as i'm leaning down to get it, I am met eye to eye with this small Pyrex carafe. I snatch it, flip it over $0.99 MINE!

So tonight the lion sleeps, and the hunter sings at rehearsal!

I must say those green canisters are awesome. I think they look more 50's but of course I could be wrong. Love the little carafe...price can't be beat! Sometimes I get a 'feeling' I need to stop somewhere and when I do I find something awesome. Those thrifting gods are pretty cool don't ya think? Oh yeah and already a follower!

Good find at Goodwill! I'm going to see if I can influence my dreams tonight! I'll find huge stashes of goodies at a yard sale on Saturday! I'll drag my dog along with me by his tail. Ah, I love good dreams!

And I believe I just threw out my original Jesus Christ Superstar album a month ago grrr! Would have sent it to you. I already have the whole thing memorized, and dang, Ted Neeley was such a hot jesus lol... Is that a sin?

Congrats on the finds!

You are the clairvoyant thrifter! Sometimes I'll be minding my own business at work or someplace and have a visual of some corner in some thrift store I frequent. I figured its my thrifty senses tingling! Good job on the followers too! You always keep us coming back for more :-P

I had very similar canisters style-wise(though they were aqua)in 1969. Believe it's time for me to hit the local 'thrift shop' to see if your vibes were sent to Dillsburg PA!

I love the green canisters! They would be great in my kitchen. The thrifting gods/pyrex god are smiling on you!

I love those green canisters! The design is great... I totally have "feelings" about certain places when thrifting too! The Retro gods can indeed by wonderful...
