Edited Thursday 10/1: I'm also joining Thrifty Thursday at Tales from Bloggeritaville. Be sure to visit Leigh & this weeks participants.
Also, I went back to the thrift store on Tuesday and they still had my bunny napkin rings (you'll know what I'm talking about once you read my post). Hip, hip, hurray!!!! The owner said she noticed that she forgot to put them in my bag as I drove off. She knew I would be back sometime for them. So she had them waiting. I also bought 2 more of the frenchy bottles. Ooh la la!!!
It's Monday & time for Today's Thrifty Finds hosted by Rhoda at Southern Hospitality. I think this is the last week she is doing this as yard sale season is pretty much over. And it's time to move on to holiday stuff. So, since this is the last week, time for one last hurray.
As I've told you before, I am not a morning person, so I don't go to yard sales. I stick mainly to thrift store shopping. I found so many goodies over the past 2 weeks that I've posted them in two parts. To see part 1, click here.
All of the goodies in this post were found over the past weekend at 3 different thrift stores. These first 2 items were found at my local Community Cupboard thrift store.
I collect Teddy bears so when I saw this one for $3.00 I couldn't resist. Could you? I love him as he is tall & lean. I wish I were too. Well, I'm tall, I'm just not lean.
I got this to make a cloche out of it. I'm pretty sure it was a light cover. Cost: $1.00
The next two items I found at a thrift store by my work. I actually bought 3 items, but when I got home, my pewter bunny napkin rings were missing. I hope that they still have them at the store & forgot to put them in the bag. I'll be stopping by there at lunch to see. Cross your fingers they still have them.
I like to collect these type of glass jars. They are great for storing misc items. Cost $2.00.
I loved this French bottle. I have one similar that I picked up on vacation in August. But this one looks brand new. The thrift store owner told me her daughter brought the bottles from France. But since I love anything French, I had to buy. Cost: $2.50. They had 2 more that I didn't buy, but I may just have to get them when I go back at lunch to see about my missing bunny napkin rings.
These last three items I picked up at a new thrift store that I found about 4 miles from my house. I loved this thrift store. They had it set up more like a boutique than a thrift store.
I found this shabby chic candle holder. I love it!!! All I need to do is add some hanging crystals (which I just happen to have). Cost $3.50. A little pricey, but it spoke to me.
Then I found these 2 ironstone plates. They match the plates from Big Lots that I have. But these are better as they are ironstone and by Johnson Brothers. Both plates were marked $2.00 each. But one of the plates had some crazing on the back so she only charged me $1.50 for that one.
Here is the maker mark on the back of the dinner plates.
I also got 3 matching salad plates. Cost: $1.00 each.
Here is the maker mark on the back of the salad plates. I love white ironstone. My hubby asked why I was getting it as I have a lot of white ironstone plates already. I said "But it's ironstone!!!, how can I pass it up?"
Well there you have my thrifty finds for the past week. I think I love finding stuff at thrift stores more than regular shopping now. But not quite.
