This week, I'll be sharing some of my favorite finds that were
all on the cheap-y side.
In fact, I'l start with the most expensive thing--
this wood and glass wine jug container.
I'll confess, I'm not exactly sure what it is,
but I'm thinking it's a cheese dome with the bowl underneath
being using to hold crackers or grapes or something.
For whatever reason, I was just smitten with it.
These plates were a very happy find for me!
I saw them for a little over $2 a plate at a thrift store
in my home state of California.
I held out because, yes--sometimes I sadly am that cheap.
But that made finding them for only 50 cents each all the better.
They're Fransican ware and I love them.
These sunny yellow Mikasa mugs with matching saucers
and large serving plate were also a nice find for me.
This large vintage Tupperware bowl was an estate sale find.
I asked if the people selling it would take $3 for it, and they did.
We use it for storing our flour, and it's so much nicer
than measuring it out from the bag.
This pink pillow and votive holder were
a "grab" find for me. No thought involved whatsoever,
because I liked them that much. They were each a dollar.
Also a dollar were there gold Steve Madden shoes.
Not that I really dress up any more,
but if I'm going to have shoes just sitting in my closet,
I'd rather they be on the thrifty side.
This large vintage Virgin Mary figurine for my collection
was a dollar, also. I have figures in varying sizes now,
which is nice.
Not that I know a thing about sewing, but I love
certain vintage sewing and craft books.
I am slowly finding more and more.
Lastly, these vintage toys were 50 cents each at
the city wide yard sale I went to a bit ago.
They were immediately put to good use, lol.
Yep, I'd say they were a good buy :)
