Like most of you, I love finding stuff at the thrift stores! We have a goodwill outlet store not far from our neighborhood, and I usually can't bear going in it, because everything is, literally, dumped into huge bins that you have to sort through. And it's mostly broken, junky, trashy stuff that needs to be in the dumpster!
But because I can't help myself & because I have found a few things that have been absolute steals....I venture in every so often. The last venture turned up these! They are big & look to be pretty old. Perfect for storing oats, grains, sugar etc...Love them! I actually got 4, and the total cost was around $2.50!
Right now I have them on my baker's rack in the kitchen. I love the vintage look of them!
The next find is a platter...from a regular goodwill store. And, I am in love with this pattern!! It's hand painted under glaze, by Vernon Kilns, made in U.S.A.
Then my wonderful friend found these matching pieces at a thrift store in her neighborhood. She paid a total of $3 for the sugar bowl & 3 plates!
I hung the 3 plates in my kitchen, and the platter sits on a stand in the kitchen also. Then, the same wonderful friend found 4 more pieces at the same store & nabbed them for me. Again just a couple bucks for all. Then the store must have decided they had some value because the last time she went in they had 4 plates for $35!
I put them in my vintage hutch (found at a garage sale) in my living/dining room.
Thanks for stopping by! See you next time....
