Yep, I sure do.
But I don't mind one little bit.
These blues make me very happy.
On Saturday Murray and I took a load of 'stuff' to the thrift store.
We were going to have a yard sale but I decided not to bother.
When we renovated our kitchen I had a lot of things I didn't use anymore
so decided they needed to go to another good home.
Three boxes gone!
I had seen these depression glass dishes there a couple weeks ago but thought
they were too expensive to buy but Murray said I could get them.
I was so excited!
Aren't they pretty?
I searched on line to find out the pattern of these dishes.
I found similar patterns called Madrid Federal or Madonna Ice.
A cup and saucer is going for $20.00.
I bought 4 cups and saucers and 4 fruit/cereal bowls for $35.00.
I think I did pretty good. Don't you?
While I was walking from the drop off area through to the sales area I spied this in a box:
A pretty aqua green vintage medicine cabinet!
It wasn't in the sales area so I asked a clerk what the price would be.
She left and came back with the cupboard and a sticker that said $2.00!!
I said, "That's great! Thank You!"
Now where am I going to put it?? I don't know. I may paint it Ivory Bisque which is
similar to Heirloom White and sand off the edges so the blue will show.
Everytime I go to HD to purchase Heirloom White it is sold out.
I've used the Ivory Bisque before and like it too. Whoever owned this did
a rough paint job and I think they actually ran out as some areas aren't covered at all.
Those were my big bargain finds this week. I hope someone buys the things I left there.
There were teacups, a Blue Mountain Pottery tea service, and lots of kitchen things.
The thrift store is called Bibles for Missions. Do you have one in your area?
They are really nice and have quality items for sale. They even check on line for
the value of some items and still sell them reasonably. All their money goes to
Bibles for Missions and I think the staff are volunteers so it's a worthy cause.
Well, that's my latest thrifting experience.
