Yay! I finally found some thrifty goodies, after a dry spell, so I can play along at the Thrifty Thursday at Bloggaritaville party. Click on the picture above to transport over to the list of party-goers. It is a fun event; that is guaranteed!
There were signs up in our neighborhood pointing me to an Estate Sale. I dropped in on the second day and it was still pretty busy. I found it to be kind of odd, in a way. First of all, we live in a neighborhood that is not very old, so I wondered “what could they have?"”.
The sale was extremely well laid out and organized. Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING in every room of the house was for sale. The kitchen cupboards were open with boxes of crackers, cans of soup, automatic dishwasher tablets and common medicines, like Tums. I found that to be kind of creepy; maybe it’s just me, but, how old are those crackers? Are those Tums expired?
There were some very nice things, too. I grabbed this heavy multi- heart muffin pan for only $2. It has never been used. I googled the John Wright Cast Iron CO and this is what I learned:
The original Wrightsville Hardware Company was founded in 1880 near our present location in Wrightsville, Pennsylvania. Along with our foundries, we have a retail store and outlet in a converted turn-of-the-century warehouse on the bank of the lovely Susquehanna River. If you are ever in the neighborhood, be sure to stop in – you can even enjoy a delightful breakfast or lunch in our Riverside Restaurant!
John Wright remains America’s oldest continuously operating manufacturer of cast iron products!!
John Wright has all types of specialty muffin pans. Their are flowers, pineapples, alphabet letters, corn cobs and a ton of others. Have you seen these muffin pans? Do you have any and do you use them?
The tablecloth picture is in “just unfolded after 30+ years”- shape. I will try to post a picture of it after I wash and press it and set it on the table, which I am excited to do.
All in all, it was worth the stop and I only had to go 3 blocks away.
