This weekend I went to Savers on Hempstead Turnpike in Long Island. While it still wasn't as cheap as the places I'm used to in Charm City, it was large, organized and fairly empty at 9:30 on a Saturday morning.
Red & Gold Valance - $4
Sheets to use to line knit bags and/or sew - $3 each (also a matching cowboy print pillow case for $1)
One of my favorite straw trivets, 2 linen napkins, two hand embroidered linen doilies & and a vintage potholder - $1 each (doilies were together) - $4 total
Close up of hand embroidery . . .
Apple Tea Light Holders - $ 1 each
small (tea bag sized) plates - $4 for 5 (the 6th was chipped)
Also, not pictured, was a rag rug and a small glass ashtray for a total of $28 with tax. Also, the cashier gave me a coupon for 30% off my next purchase. :) Good to be thrifting again!
I'm off to Baltimore this weekend with plans to hit at least two thrifts . . .
until then . .
