THRIFT STORE FINDS!!!

Yesterday was really a rare day for me at the thrift store....WHY you ask??? Well typically whenever I find stuff, I need to re-do it or add something to it or clean it up. Sometimes it can get put on the back burner for those reasons BUT not yesterday!!...I about flipped my lid when I came across all these tresures yesterday.........AND I don't have to do a thing to them...(unless I want too!!!) The old galvanized bucket was a shocker and it was 1.00......I practically had tears in my eyes...the old cutlery tray is precious. I gave you a close up to see the little blue flowers on it. All the wooden spoons were in a bin right next to it ..... The plaid fabric in the bucket is a table runner, the little rooster holds cards, the collander will be used as a planter and the star is metal! I felt like I was in " thrifty primitive heaven "! Usually it is not this good. I have thrifted for years and rarely do you find so many treasures all at once. I know it will be awhile before it happens again! The best part is......it is recycling in disguise! How great is that? Okay....are you ready to hear the total for all this loot???? Are you guessing yet????? Drum roll please..............................$9.89 plus tax!!!!
(as promised...there was NO GOOSE in this post!!....I WAS out lookin for one though!!;0)

Girl, you hit the jackpot!! I have a star like that in a rusty fisnish. Love the tray, my new love is wooden spoons old or not they give a nice prim look in a gathering!

Love it all! You're right about putting stuff off because it has to be "redone". It's great to find things that don't require any work!

You go girl! You're right. It's usually hunt and no gather, but you were so lucky. I love the cutlery tray. I think that will more than double your 9.89 investment! LOL Debbie

WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW - You found LOTS of great stuff and for it to already look that great is amazing!! I am so jealous that I can't find a single thing while thrift store shopping.

Love it all! What a day. Makes me want to head out to hunt treasures too. Maybe this weekend. :sigh:

You go girl! What wonderful finds. I would have been excited. My mom has a colander like that that she has used forever, do you think she'll notice if I take it, haha.
Enjoy your treasures!

Hi Beth,
Love everything you got!! You sure went on the right day. I love those kind of days...when you hit the jackpot!! When that happens to me...I wonder if I just arrived at the right time and that they had just put it out on the shelves, because otherwise you just can't believe that it would still be there.
