Bright Sun Shiny Day Thrift Store Finds.....


Freckles and I went on one of our thrifting excursions earlier this week. We were thrilled to find a whole big stack of books for her library...She is collecting a lot of good books as well as classic reads. As she was picking out books, I did my normal run through the isles I focus on. I was thrilled to find a whole set of Melamine Mar-Crest Melmac cups/saucers and a sugar bowl/creamer in lovely Buttery Yellow from the 40's-50's. They will be perfect for our picnics and perhaps some tea parties...All for just $6.
 
 

Another sweet find were these adorable ceramic place holders for names and flowers. I thought they would be perfect for a dinner party of 6 or even that tea party we will have when using the dishes we just got. Yeah.... I love the happy colors....right up my alley. Final cost $2.
 

Then I found these darling little juice glasses with butterflies.
 Perfect in every way. So far I was hitting the jack pot...$5 for all.


The last treasure I couldn't pass up were these two bath towels. These vintage sweeties are in awesome condition, as if they were hardly ever used. I don't mind the mixed matched look...so they came home with me. It was a bright sun shiny day...
And I didn't even break the bank. $4 for both.
 Now I have to go through stuff I don't want and donate it. I told myself if I ever come home with new stuff, then something old that I don't need or use will be donated.
 Then I won't end up a pack rat. It really helps.
Cheers to a great weekend.
