So Bee and I hit the local Goodwill store...
I was sooooooooooooo disappointed!
Sheesh! They do know what is a "need"
and a "want " and price accordingly!!!
(I think they read all the right magazines
and know juuuuuuuuuuuuuust what's
a hot-seller!!!! I was bummed...no
fabulous finds like all of you always
seem to come across...boo hoo...there
I was, glumly dragging my ratty, nasty
silver tray around ($5.99). It was the
only thing I could find! It would need to
be painted to cover it's myriad flaws, but
I thought I might as well but it as not...
boo hoo...my bargain mojo was just zapped,
when my sister said, "Let's go around one
more time...sometimes you see things you
missed before". "Alright", I mope-ily shrugged,
"might as well"**dramatic sigh**
LONG STORY SHORT...WOOHOOOOOOOOO!
In no time we had a cart full (sorry, I didn't take
pictures of her purchases).
But look what I found!
A glass dome (the wooden cheese board was
xnayed immediately!)~~a little basket that is
unmarked, but the china is very thin and fine...
and the flower is PINK!~~~a lustreware covered
jar...pink flower! Reminds me of something my
great grandmother would have had!~~~ and a
lustreware saucer with darling daisies!!!
This cute little chick! My sister rolled her eyes
but she was just too sassy to pass up!!!(OH, and
I discovered that the glass dome fits my milk glass
plate to perfection!).
This little jewelry armoire...I LOVE THE FEET!
I have been looking for little shelves, etc. to hold
all the bits & bobs that go into my creating!!!
And this little dresser too! I don't know if I'm in love
with the flowers, but they are starting to grow on me.
And, ooops, I didn't get the tray! I put it down somewhere
and I couldn't find it again! But, no matter, I got all of the
above for $25 and I am clappy as a ham!!!!
