So, did you have a good thrifty week? It was a very busy week for me around here at Casa Chaos. Nothing new there. One of these days I am going to say, “oh, it was a slow boring week”. And I can’t wait for that week! LOL
Yesterday I showed you the fun little out of the way thrift place that I have been stopping at every couple of weeks. And I gave you a sneak peek of what I bought there.
(setting up to clean the silver pieces)
Oooh la la ! Even not completely detailed cleaned, it is a gorgeous set!
Geez! I tried and tried to figure out how to NOT get myself in the reflection of the silver and after 21 pictures, I gave up! Any tips any of you have, please feel free to share! Oh, and I should have cropped out the pile of debris in the upper right hand corner. LOL I just harvested some chives and sat there and picked out the weeds and bad chives and hadn’t cleaned up my mess yet. Welcome to my world!
I also picked up these two other little beauties.
I can’t give you an individual price for each of these items because I pull all the things I am interested in purchasing together and then we negotiate an agreeable price. So, what was my price for all my treasures today? Are you ready?
Now do you see why I love doing business with this store! Since this store specializes in trading cards and coins, they often get other “lots’ of merchandise in and want to sell it as quickly as possible. The owner is very generous and a really nice guy to work with.
Lynn at Happier than Pig in Mud made these yummy fridge bread and butter pickles. I love a good pickle and a recipe this quick and easy is right up my alley!
Jeanne at Selep Imaging shared her wonderful collection of 4th of July dishes arranged in her hutch! Just beautiful.
