OK, I know it's Thursday, but I have been trying to post since Tuesday and have been having lots of troubles. So - I was poking around the 'net on Tuesday morning and seeing lots of pretty frou-frou found by folks at the thrift stores, so thought I would test my own luck. I live near two super-sized thrift stores: Goodwill and Value Village. I don't go to Goodwill that often, but I decided to visit on Tuesday since it's been a couple of months. It was totally worth it! Lots of good stuff there then. I missed out on some really great tea cups, but there was a pretty serious tea cup collector there (she said she has over 300!) and she was swooping down on the employees as soon as they came out of the back with a new cart of stuff. The rest of us really didn't have a chance! I got lots of other goodies though, so on with the show!
I thought this would look nice on my shelf of potted china posies.
To which these have been added. I love the little tulips - I haven't seen those before.
A pretty little birdie plate and Bachelor Button cream and sugar set. I happen to like that we call them "Bachelor Buttons", but I remember an English lady who came into the flower shop I was working at many years ago and telling me explicitly they were called CORNFLOWERS and that's all!
The background on these look white but they are really a very pale green. They are in mint condition too.
I thought this was really cute. It's only about three inches across. It will make a nice holding spot for my rings when I have to take them off in the bathroom.
I just love this. I don't know how old it is - it's pretty clean inside - but it was made in England. I'll probably put sewing supplies in it.
I totally do not need it, but I couldn't resist it. The colors are bright and clear and the gold is perfect. I don't think it was ever handled!
Not vintage, but I couldn't help but think of my sweet girl when I saw this. Now she has more room to store all those beaded necklaces she makes.
Goodwill is having a 50% off sale tomorrow, but I think I will pass on it. Firstly I have My Favorite Boy home with me and I would have to take him, and second I was just there! Even I know when I'm pushing the thrifting envelope!
