Wow, we are in the last week of January already! Geez, this month zipped by!
I have a few little thrifted items I picked up last month. The other day was the first time I stopped in a thrift store since before Christmas. And I was kind of disgusted with the prices and ended up with a $1.75 purchase and that's it. To be honest, I have been working on the things I already have during the month of January and haven't wanted to add anything to my home right now.
I picked up this large water pitcher at a thrift store. It still had the original price tag on it. I paid $2.00 for it. Although looking at this picture, you can’t see the size correctly, it is a heavy ceramic large jug. We always have a pitcher of iced water on our dinner table and I like to switch out and use different ones.
Don’t you love Amber glass? I bought this set of four amber saucers at a little antique store and the woman who owned it was really trying to sell out her stock before the new year. I was looking at them and they had a price of $10.00 on the set. I placed them back on the shelf. She told me they were half off but, I said, “No thank you. But, they really are pretty.” She then said, “How about 75% off…only $2.50 for the set?” SOLD
I love painted vintage glassware. It is usually so expensive. These glasses were marked $1.99 each. That is a little too much for me. For most people I am sure that is a decent price. However, that color of sticker was 50% off! Okay, .99 cents each worked for me! I wish they would have had more than just the two!
I love silver candlesticks. When I spotted these two small tarnished ones and the were only $1.29 each I decided to get them. When I got to the register I discovered that they were $1.29 for the pair. Even better! I did a very quick cleaning on one because I always have to see how they sparkle! LOL
So, those are a few of my thrifted treasures. Let’s check out some posts from last week!
