Thrifty Finds

Thrifty Finds

Friday was 1st Friday downtown.
I went to one of the antique stores and found the following item for half price - so it was $6.50!
 I will be using it for displaying item when I have my booth in the Spring Show

also got these glass beaded necklace for $1 - it will be re-purposed!

This weekend we went to a Christmas Bazaar at a local church. I am toying with the idea of doing some bazaars and I was scoping out what people sell and what they sell it for. They had what they called Santa's Attic I thought it was going to be  a children's shopping place was I surprised when I found some vintage items!

As you can see this angel was .50

The plates were 2.50 total:

For $5:

  5. LOVE the pink depression glass, can't believe it was only $5 for all of it! the christmas angel is really pretty too, it looks very old.

  6. The depression glass is beautiful...i have a few pieces and YOU got them for a steal!

  7. What great finds! I used to have a pearl necklace just like the one you found. I loved it.

    I see that you are a retired nurse. I'm a nurse too, 15 years! I went back to school when my kids were a little older. It's been a great profession but I'm tired now. Nursing is so demanding isn't it!? I think it's time for me to slow down now!

  8. Wonderful finds! I love the necklace. There are so many different ways to use it! I would love to see what you do with it! Thanks for sharing!

  9. What wonderful treasures you found!IS that real depression glass? In any case, lovely! And the tray table-adorable!
