A couple of Thrift Store finds

Here are a few of my recent thrift store acquisitions. Ohhhhh is that all fancy schmancy! LOL

This pair of heavy brass candle sconces were marked $5.99 for the pair. However, it was white tag day and as you can see, they are white tagged! So, I paid $3.00 for the pair.

Another white tag find was this large heavy vintage ceramic mixing bowl. You can see on the price tag that it says "as is". It has a chip in the rim (pictured). Marked at $4.59 so, I got it for $2.30.

These 2 Autumn placemats were marked .99 cents, with a white tag. So, I got the 2 of them for .50 cents.

  1. Diane,
    You did great at the thrift store! I especially love your fall placemats.

    Thanks for linking to 2nd Time Around!

  2. I saw one fellow blogger who spray painted the brass candlestick holder black for halloween. Now, these are too pretty for that. But it's a great idea for an old pair that lost its luster. Don't u think?

  3. Now those really ARE goodwill goodies. I can't believe you got those sconces so cheaply. Want to sell them? (wink!)

    Fabulous finds. You are an excellent thrift shopper!

  4. Wow cool bargains. What you gonna do with those sconces?

  5. Vintage, inexpensive and functional - gotta love that.
