Today's Junk Finds - Favorite Thrifty Hang Out
I was so excited to take a little adventure today. I visited my local GW and my absolute FAVORITE thrift store and found some treasures - of course! At the thrift store, I found some great vintage silver plated items - A beauty of a tea pot ($2.50), sugar and creamer (.50/pair), serving tray ($1), and a casserole holder (.50) minus the glass casserole. I'll use the casserole holder for chimes and possibly the tea pot as well. Or, the tea pot may become part of a Christmas display (yes - I said CHRISTMAS not holiday - please don't call the politically correct police). Some old wooden coasters (.50) will get shabbied up a bit with paint, set of 4 brandy glasses ($1.50) will become cloches, some china pieces for mosaics that I'll start on soon, some other glass pieces (about .50 each), a grapevine type swag ($2.50 for about 16') will become little nests in cloches and wine glasses, among a few other things. I love the 2 pink sheers ($4.00) and I'll use them in my craft booth near my Shabby Chic junk at upcoming fall shows. Grand total for this haul was only $22.00! I LOVE it all.
