The Score

All in all my weekend of shopping in Charm City was successful. I am still in search of a few things, including a small dresser and a mini muffin pan, but I did very well at each of the three thrift stores I visited.

*floral patterned table cloth - destined to become my new fabulous beach bag - $2

*rug - brand new and good for near the backdoor to wipe muddy doggie feet - $2
*retro pink juice container - in great shape, I just love this piece! - $2
*mini pitcher - it matches my larger one, I use them as vases - $1.50
*pyrex loaf pan - needed a glass loaf pan, now maybe L. will get meatloaf for dinner - $2

Here is a close up of that juice container:

*green/tan doily? - not sure what else to call it but it will look nice on my toilet tank. :) - 45 cents
*roll of pink aida cloth - thanks to Sargeant Nine I am now obsessed with counted cross stitch - 66 cents
*vintage apron - it's silky & the words are French, oo la la! - $2
*seashell ash tray - perfect for Mom's luau - $2

These are my favorite finds, all from THEE Thrift Store. :)

*darling bird pillow - made from nice shiney cotton, so sweet & small - $2
*big fork & mini ladle - they match with a cute retro star pattern on the handles - 25 cents each
*old tin - it smells like dusting powder inside, Mom says my grandmother had a similar one - $1.50
*recipe box - also reminds me of grandma, cute strawberry pattern - $1

I'll post more this week, I made quite the haul! Not to mention all the stuff Mom had picked up for me over the last few months. See you soon!
cheers - bex

Good prices on these! I love that apron--I love fabric with words on it. Check my links again--I have several thrift sites listed that you might be interested in also.
