Today's Thrifty Finds
Here's todays bootie...I tried going to a different thrift store that I'd never been to before..it sounded like it would be a good place..but I was pretty dissappointed...there really wasn't much there...but I did find a few decent things..
The green glasses look vintage...they were $10......the candy dish will probably be used in my bathroom to hold small items ....probably cotton balls or something...the other clear jar is a Princess House piece...I'm pretty happy with that..it was $5.00 and would have cost at least $20.00 new....I have a few pieces of Princess House( which I paid FULL price for....a friend of mine sold it..actually I got some of it FREE for hosting parties...LOL) so this will go well with those...and then the "piece de resistance"......a Chalkware Bluebird from probably around the 1940's...I didn't know anything about it...I picked it up because it was a "bluebird" ...and it looked kinda old..when I got up to the register the cashier told me it had a story...I guess it's from an Old Carousel, "across the water" ,she 'thinks" Buckroe Beach....she said they used to give these away as prizes way back in the old days....How cool is that?!!
Anyway todays total for
came to $19.43......added to yesterdays total of $6.85 comes to $26.28 total for the Thrift Challengeso far!
