We haven't been to thrift stores for a long time - and since it was raining this holiday weekend (President's Day today in the U.S - honoring presidents Lincoln and Washington - and others that we admire), we decided to stop at a couple of thrift shops on our day out.
Lots of fun stuff - squirrel plate for autumn, and the gold depression glass candy dish, white corelle berry bowls - they go with anything
Lots of reels of ribbon for doll clothes - these came out to about 25 cents a reel. The little wooden tulips are for a garden for the dolls, and I got 4 doll stands (on the left in the first photo) for 4.99 for all four - which is about 10% of the original cost.
A deluxe Tripoley game - what a find! And a better view of the white doll stands on the right.
And one of my favorites - tulip salt and pepper shakers!
Four pretty glass dessert dishes - shall we have an ice cream sundae?
And four skeins of yarn - 8 ounces each - for making hats for the homeless for next winter. This amount of yarn will make at least 10 hats.
Extra fun this week - I made 13 1/2 pints of jam - raspberry/apricot and bumble berry (a mix of blackberry, blueberry and raspberry), and a fresh apple cake. The berries and apricots had been frozen last summer - I like to make jam in the winter and not on the warm summer days. And any time is a good time for an apple cake.
It was a great weekend
