Yesterday I went to the Salvation Army for the first time in about two months. when I walked in, it was a completely different store. Entirely rearranged and different. They now have a vintage corner, but it is reasonably priced. I expected things to be double what they used to be, but some were actually less. I even found a vintage item, which is completely unheard of at the Salvation Army.
Today I went to another thrift that has recently undergone some drastic changes. This is the thrift that I always referred to as the $8.00 Store". Everything was always eight dollars. Jeans? Eight dollars. Vase? Eight dollars. Cheap figurine from Dollar General? Eight dollars. *Sigh. I rarely ever went there because of the crazy eight dollar pricing structure. But, the old manger is GONE and everything is different. Cheaper by far and cool stuff everywhere.
Case in point - This great old jar with handpainted cherries for $1.00. The jar is vintage, but the cherries are most likely a Donna Dewberry inspired project. Normally, I would scrub off any paint, but I am loving the cherries. I think a bunch of my old tin cookie cutters will be perfect in it.
I spotted these teeny little crocheted watermelon slice earrings for 50¢ on the way to check out. I won't be wearing them, but for the owner of almost 60 different crocheted watermelon potholders, don't you think I just had to buy them?!?
It's pretty darned cute with it's minty green and white squares. Yes, it's a cutie. It couldn't be any cuter.
May I present, Mr. and Mrs. Bunny. All dressed up and no where to go.
Baby Bunny off to fish.
