I haven’t shown off my thrifted treasures for a while so let me tell you about the deals I’ve found.
It is a small shop, stuffed to the gills, making it hard to shop in, but it is staffed by dear senior citizens who are adorable. I bought this collie because when I was a baby we had a white collie named Speedy. I don’t remember him, but I have heard lots of stories.
I considered this one.
Years ago I bought the first of these leaf shaped salad plates. They also had the salad bowl but I decided to only get the plates. I have regretted that decision ever since. From time to time I have come across the bowl but it was either damaged or too expensive but I was finally able to complete my set and it was only $2.00.If you’ve been reading A Frugal Spinster from the start you may remember my bird ornament collection.These two were in separate bags of mixed ornaments. I asked the cashier if I could just purchase the two birds for $2.49 (the higher priced bag). To my delight she said yes. Now there are two more birds flying around my fireplace.I wanted so badly to bring this lamb footrest home with me but ultimately thought better of it.
