After we picked up the truck yesterday, I was near a thrift that I wanted to hit, so I stopped in. I had heard they were moving to a new location, and I was right. I promised that I would "just be a minute" and I would "just take a quick spin around" and then when I got in the door I saw a big sign that said, "ENTIRE STORE HALF PRICE." I sent a text of that photo to the car where The Bean was waiting with his book. A short text came back, "Uh-Oh". Ha. He knows me too well. In the end, my grand total was $30.00, but it halved to $15.00. So not a bad deal. The Bean (he came in to shop at those bargain prices) got three nice arrows for $6.00 that added to my total.
Two vintage boxes full of old quills and calligraphy nibs. I love old office things. But, they will most likely go on ebay or to The Junk Ranch.
I got 8 Reader's Digest Books with pretty colors. Four of them had bad bindings, so they got cut apart. I used to cut the covers off all the RD books for crafting, but I have a nice supply of good ones now. People like to use them in decorating now. So I will take a box full to TJR.
A beautiful Denby Pottery Pitcher from England and a small thrown pottery vase. The inside of the pitcher is cobalt blue and SO pretty!
A lovely pink cake plate.
I don't know if it's new or old, but it's pretty and useful. And it was $1.00!
This morning when I went to ebay, my homepage showed a bunch of vintage birthday candles. My mind suddenly remembered that I had found a vintage box of birthday candles at the thrift. But where were they? I run to the recycling tub, a dig in the plastic bag bin and I found them! minutes before the recycling truck came. Yea me!
This is one of my favorite collections, but one I rarely ever find out thrifting. I receive them in Happy Mail packages and swaps. So, I was happy to remember this one before it was too late!
Two very old books and a Fruitcake Tin from the now defunct Continental Bakery (The Breadman's old employer).
A funny little Graduation girl. She's much less scary in person, I promise.
One of the old books is a piano music book with the cutest little notes and drawings.
The second book is a "Bedside Companion" from 1935 and I tell you what - that book is really risque! Nakedness, Raunchy jokes, cartoons and bad words!
Here is a list of things a man should have on hand for his lady when she comes over.
K-Y Jelly? Lord a mercy. I didn't know that stuff was around in 1935!
This is the second post in a row where I have had to mark out boobies.
What is this blog coming to???????
When I got home, I had an email from that same thrift telling me that the store was going to be 75% off the next day. DADGUMIT.
A little mid-week junk fix to spur me along.
Hope you are finding some junk too. Happy Memorial Day Weekend!
