Just a quick post about a few treasures that I found while thrifting a few days ago. First, I give big thanks to my husband, who was working at home, and said "sure, Hope can stay here with me". She is good for one thrift shop but a whole day of thrifting? Not happening. Anyway, on to the good stuff :)
The Ball jars were the big steal of the day! 95 cents a piece! The blue ones are circa 1923-1932 & the clear were made 1932-1960. I'm going to use them to store sea glass and other little treasures. The shop at which I found them is very hit & miss, but when they do have something good, the prices are rock bottom.
I found these very nice pieces of English transferware at another shop that is also very hit & miss. But, I find good stuff there just often enough to keep me coming back.... Both the plates and the bowl are from the 1950s and are in excellent condition. I particularly love the pattern on the bowl. All of these will go into my re-vamped Etsy store, which is coming soon, I swear.
I was very disciplined during my spree and only purchased items that I really love and need. I picked up a cardigan to go with a skirt that I'm going to make and an adorable red cotton skirt that I know that I'm going to wear all of the time, both this summer and once school starts. And, I found a Pottery Barn picture frame for 2.99 that is perfect for a little re-fresh that I'm doing in the powder room.
It was so much fun to bargain shop all day and come home with bags full of treasures :)
