Thrifty Finds in Fall

This week was all thrift store finds! I have a thrift store about 10 minutes from my work, so I treat myself and stop by a couple of times a week. I stood and looked at this piece a long time before I decided to get it. $2.99 is a good price, but did I really like it?

I decided I did the more it sat on my kitchen counter!

These little salad plates each have a different herb on them, and the names of herbs all around the edge. Maybe a tablescape with fresh potted herbs next spring?



$.49 each


Nice gold bubble glasses for $.49 each.


Look at the lovely material I found, too. Brand new, there is enough for a table runner or 2 pillows for the living room. Hmmm.

Thanks for looking at what I dragged home.

Sounds like you had good luck at Goodwill! You found some great treasures...that tureen is really pretty. I love the salad plates, anything green my eyeballs hit immediately...I am on the hunt for green bubble stems.
Have a great weekend, Pat.

Pat, Your Lucky does look like our kitty, Baker. Baker is 10+ years old and was a feral, but we've had her so long she's rather tame now. We have 8 other ferals that we feed. Thanks for stopping by.

You found good things on your shopping trip. The glasses are really nice and I think the tureen is lovely. The basket of fruit on the top has nice colors. I had those herb plates at one time but must have gotten rid of them. Seeing yours makes me wish I still had them.---------- Shannon

Pat, you have to buy a tureen whenever you see one. Seriously though, that will look great on a fall table. The glasses are pretty nice too.

I forgot to mention in my post that Williams is where you get the train to go to the Grand Canyon! You found some great bargains and lovely things at your thrift shop. It does pay to stop by those places often as new things come in all the time. It's always great to catch it just as they are restocking the shelves....if you can!
