I always want to go thrifting when I hear of others who have had recent luck at it. Yesterday I went to all three of my local thrift stores, and it was a pretty good day.
For metal pieces I got these:
I've got my shortbread in the tin on the right. It's nice to have them out of a plastic container, and it's much prettier on my counter too. The tray on the left reminded me of chintzware so I had to get it. I thought the colours were a bit dull, but it turns out the tray was just really dirty! It's called Daher Decorated Ware and it's from 1971. Designed in the U.S: made in England. I had a look on ebay for similar ones and there are some seriously beautiful patterns out there. I will definitely be on the lookout for more.
It's a little hard to tell but this coffee container is actually pink and black! I was seriously stoked to find it. Even better was that it was something ridiculous like 79 cents. Mr. Crafty World likes our current coffee container, so I put our Tassimo pods in there. There was no way I was leaving that in the store. It's American too: made by West Bend. I think they used to make appliances?
For china I got two Wedgewood dishes. I was only going to buy one but I found out it was was half price day for dishes. Score!
The dish on the left is big enough to use as a sandwich or cake tray which is nice. The bowl on the right was quite stained under the glaze, but I currently have it soaking in OxyClean and it's working to clean it up.
For the rest of it I got this big basket to hold the quilts and afghans in our family room. I'm going to make a liner for it so the crocheted ones don't snag. I got a few books and a new in package bath pillow and Dimensions cross stitch kit. The kit was open but everything is there which is nice.
I could not resist the happy daisy and turquoise sheet. It's going to make the cutest bunting I think. Another project to add to the pile!
Thanks for visiting:)
