Here are two random, but fun, thrift store finds.

Metal "Fresh Eggs" sign
Found this fun metal sign for $2.00.  Hey, we don't have fresh eggs yet, but it seemed like something fun to put up.  It's certainly not old, it's one of those reproduction signs, but still a neat conversation piece to put above the sink.

Metal desk bell
OK, this might seem weird, and I have no idea what we'll do with it, but I always thought it would be neat to have one of these.  It's a metal bell, the kind you might find on an old hotel reservation desk.  This one has a red metal base which fits the kitchen perfectly so I took it as a sign, LOL.
For $2.75, I couldn't pass it up.


  1. oh wow....great finds. i love both of them!

  2. That little bell could be the dinner bell for the folks who are currently inside. ha.. Love your bog!

  4. 1st Man,

    Lovely thrift store finds!!!
    I can see you know hitting that bell, oh 2nd Man.........what's for dinner!!!!

  5. You do find some interesting things thrift shopping!
    No good me looking as I am decluttering & not spending, but I love seeing yours!!

  6. Both of those are great. Use the little bell as a form of celebrating, like when I great dish comes out of the oven or the cake did not fall.

  7. Love any type of bell. Reminds me of George Bailey and Clarence! laura

  8. Awesome finds! I just love going to thrift stores & finding something unique. Last year I found a metal sign - similar in style to your Fresh Eggs sign - that had a vintagy snowman on it with the phrase "No Peeking!". We placed it on the mantel right next to the tree & it quickly became one of my favourite pieces of Christmas decor.

  9. That's so awesome!! i wish I still had all the red and white vintage farmhouse decor from years ago. I got rid of it some years back. Regretting it now... :(
