The Weekly Thrift

I've always loved cheese spreaders - and I've always thought I didn't have enough.  The sets are a bit pricey for me - so whenever I find some at yard sales or thrift stores - I pick them up.  Our son-in-law Jason makes his famous cheese ball for any occasion - and a cheese spreader is always a good idea.  Well, I've picked up cheese spreaders - and picked up cheese spreaders - and - well, you get the idea.




Some fish - maybe we'll have a luau.  .  .






Lighthouses - perfect for a beach picnic.  .  .



These were the first ones I picked up at a thrift store - we used them for every occasion for a while.  .  .



Next - some "new" holiday cheese spreaders.  .  .



A very nice holiday family.  .  .






For the more sophisticated cheese ball.  .  .


And a baseball cheese spreader for Don and summer!

Nice Catch!






So that's about it - do you think I have enough?  Still when I see some in those little baggies at the thrift store I am still tempted - you never know what theme will be needed for your cheese ball.  I think I'll have some cheese and crackers, thank you!

What an amusing collection--something for every occasion. The closest I come to collecting would be paperweights or--in a galaxy far, far away--antique glass Christmas ornaments. Having something to look out for makes thrifting so much more fun and challenging. Happy hunting!

Oh, I love your little collection, JoAnn! Cheese spreaders are a good thing to collect, as you can never have too many and they don't take up a lot of room. I do love cheese and crackers! xoxo

These are terrific. Mine started with a Teddy bear. Moved onto pigs dressed as chefs,.... We do have a lot in common, don't we. Thanks for your concern, I am feeling much better. All test came back negative so far.

I don't even eat cheese and I love these. I would totally buy them if I saw them. Following you on GFC and looking forward to more finds. :)

What a fun collection! I have a couple of very cute cheese spreaders. I bought them new and they seemed like an extravagence. I haven't considered them as part of a garage sale quest - now that's something I could enjoy and I always, always feel good about my garage sale finds and treasures!
