A very nice thrift store
Recently moved to a new location
Lots of parking
All christmas items are 50% off
What would you do?
I KNOW what I would do
And I did
I cruised through the christmas stuff - and they had a LOT of it
These cute skating bears had to come home with me
And another Santa for my collection
Santa and his
You just gotta love that face!
Four pretty metal napkin rings - one can never have too many napkin rings
And then I saw it - oh could it be - yes it is
A Double Wedding Ring tree skirt.
I've been looking for a new tree skirt for a long time - We've had our old one since before our kids were born - and our oldest will be 48 tomorrow - time for a change?
Ohhhh - a Boyd's Bear - brand new - still had the hang tag - and only 3.00, no wait!
Half price - he was 1.50 - His name is Winter Mintly - we'll just call him Mintly
He likes the new tree skirt - me too!
He wanted me to show you his mint on his paw - he's quite proud of that, and wants some peppermint ice cream.
And a pretty tablerunner - it is long enough to go the length of the dining room table, with the giant leaf in it. I might use this over a crocheted tablecloth for christmas dinner.
And of course - after the half price christmas items, I had to look at the rest of the store.
It just wouldn't be polite to go to their newly opened store (they used to be downtown with no parking and a much smaller store) and not look at all they had to offer.
So I looked at the Majolica, made in Italy plates
Two of each design - and only 10.00 for all four. So why am I telling you the price? Because I was stunned, shocked, amazed, when I got them home and on the back - the original price tag
$207.00 EACH - each - I can't believe that. First, that anyone would pay that much, and second, that I'd find them in a thrift store. This is one nice thrift store!
I will definitely use these leaf plates for something at Thanksgiving
And a cute tea set - with a platter - this will be great for spring teas on the deck (5.00 for the entire set) This was my lucky day!
And a pretty autumn dish - it had a candle in it - but I microwaved it and slid the candle out when it was soft
I want to use this for a candy dish - or a relish dish
Pretty leaves on the side.
So - what would you have done?
