Thrifting Adventures

The table made up with the vintage tablecloth .50 cents, $1 Milk Glass Fruit bowl, and I paid $3 for 8 place settings of milk glass snack plates and cups.












Anchor Hocking Fire King piece fo $1.50 (small chip on side)






Large white platter (small chip) $1.50






Okay, so we went to the Goodwill. They have better clothes than the rest of the thrift shops and my tween girl wanted to check it out. I saw 3 home decor items I would have LOVED to have. Two of them would have been perfect for my dining room redo...but it was just too darn expensive ($7 bucks a piece!). Is that bad that the Goodwill is too expensive for me? Should I get help? A 12 step program maybe?

But the Salvation Army thrift store was great. Half off wednesdays! The prices were great.



Don't forget about my giveaways

  1. So nice to meet you. I'm glad you came over for a visit. You are so much like me. I too shop Goodwill and often find great buys. I try to go every so often because you never know what you can find. As for "chips" on plates or cups, to me they add character...like me.

    I'm following your blog and can't wait to read more.

    Yoli :)

  3. lol, it's not bad that the thrift store was too expensive. The ones near me are rip offs. I can get most items new for cheaper, how bad is THAT! lol.

  4. I know what you mean. I have better luck at yardsales. I go a 3 piece Bath and Body Works set today unused at a yardsale for $1.00 and 2 heavy green jars from Spain to put shells in for $1.00 for the 2. I love Salvation Army on Wednesdays too. That is the best time to shop there. Love your blog.
