But it pays off sometimes. A couple of weeks ago, I found some lovely treasures...all for a little over $10.
A milk glass cake stand (I have one just like it but everything is better in pairs, don'tcha think? ), a cut glass cake plate (I finally have enough to use them as chargers on a table) & I also scored some chintz mugs. Yep, chintz! They're made by Royal Crown & were on sale for half off! I paid $3 for 4 mugs!!
I need more goblets like I need more dishes ;o) but I really liked these & I'm pretty sure they're vintage, so in the cart they went.
And I don't know what I will do w/ the chintz fabric but it had roses on it so in the cart it went as well.
Love this mini-nativity. I featured it in a recent tablescape post.
And what a hideous arrangement! why did I buy it, you ask?
Because look how charming the rabbit & bird on it are, after you remove the ugly flowers. It's been broken & then repaired though... previous owner tried to hide the damage w/ the arrangement. Surely I can do a better job of camouflaging than that!
I went on another thrifting jaunt w/ hubby this weekend & hope to post pics of it soon. Happy thrifting everybody!
