I’ve been thinking that I may start a (perhaps) weekly series on my thrift store finds. I usually pop in several times a week, and it would be fun to show off my goodies. It’s always possible as well that it will show me that I’m spending way more than I think on my “bargains” and nickel-and-diming us to death! In which case the series would have to end.
I’ll probably move it to Thursdays—Thrift Store Thursdays—but for now I’ll start here, and today I’m going to join Julia’s Hooked on Fridays, because clearly I have an addiction!
I already mentioned in yesterday’s post how on Monday I got the exact frames I wanted for my bathroom project at my favorite thrift store: $6.
That same day I found this Ralph Lauren purse for $1.50. I had been on the lookout for a new summery bag, and this was perfect.
Tuesday I met with Dixie to do a couple things and of course we ran into Goodwill. I got the cute little cheese dome for $2, but discarded the wooden plate it came with (actually, Firstborn took it to do who knows what with it).
Wednesday I went to a different GW and found the little saucer-sized glass plate to go under the dome: $1. The frame was also $1.
And these lovelies? Wedgwood. Made in England. Three salad plates at $1 each. I had seen these several times in the last month, along with some dinner plates and I think a few more salad plates. I refrained from buying the whole (incomplete) set, but when I saw these three sitting alone, I rescued them.
Other purchases not shown:
- a lemon to add to my apothecary jar of lemons, $.50.
- an Avon bunny-motif trinket dish from the ’80s which will go in P’s Easter basket, $1.10. My sister gave me the matching piece when I was about 12, and P has it now.
- a book that Dixie’s hubby needs for our small group study, $1
Total for the week: $17.10. Well, I can already see that totaling it up will be a bit of a surprise!
Be sure to see what everybody else is Hooked On!
