Thers's a new thrift store about a mile from my house. I have been waiting for the perfect opportunity go look through it without the kids distracting me. I went one day last week and got some great finds! I will go back another time when I have more time. I was on my way to pick up kids from school and had to limit the time I spent perusing. I was really surprised at the selection since it's kind of a smaller shop.
Here's what I scored, spending a grand total of $8 (including tax!).
By the way, please forgive the messy background and grainy shots. I was using my iphone in my office right after I got the items. I was separating them between my office and home and wanted to get pictures before I forgot.
The two baskets I got because I love the liner and the handles. Baking season is almost here (even though it's still in triple digits where I am) and I plan on using these as I give jars of jelly and holiday goodies. They were 50 cents each!!! That's a great price for giving away!
Some glassware here. The two clear crackled class bowls have a slighly unusual shape. I got them to sort some small scrpbooking embellishments into for my Project Life station. They were 50 cents each. The fall plates I got two of. One of them I am leaving here in my office to put scrappig embellishments on and the other I'm taking home for some cookbook food staging pictures. Those were $1 each.
And last but not least, my favorite piece of the day:
This was a whopping $3.50 but I fell in love with it. I don't know why. It's not my usual style. It is meant to be a vase but I am going to use it for juice I think. ;)
So $7.50 in purchases plus tax came out to just over $8. I think I did well!
Some day in the future, if I remember, I'll post a picture showing the glassware in my scrapping space.
