I haven't had a good thrift store score in a really long time, but this weekend, I hit the jackpot!
These gorgeous classic silver bowls will clean up well and will be beautiful in the dining room ($6 & $3). I find so many silver items at thrift stores for dirt cheap. I guess that people don't want to polish them, but it really only takes a minute and I love the way they look in a grouping.
I also scored 4 dinner plates that match our dishes (seen in the first picture - $8 total). We have Martha Stewart Everyday dishes that are no longer made. I haven't found any other dishes that I like as well so I snatch up extras when I see them in thrift stores.
As I left the Salvation Army, I noticed an antiques store that I hadn't seen before (how did this happen???). I went in and found wonderful pieces for my vintage kitchen cabinet (totaling$32 including the silver bowl).
I just love those ice cream containers & the plate from an ice cream parlor (marked 1947!). And the colored sugar sprinkles are such a find! I can't wait to have all of these cute vintage sweet & cooking goodies gathered in my cabinet. In the mean time, I'm having fun collecting for it ;)
In my next post, I'll show you how I've used my new finds in the house -- I'm on a decorating roll!
