Katie is my new go-to girl. She likes to thrift, craft, eat chocolate, read Martha Stewart magazines and sit on the couch. All of my favorite things! I picked her up last Saturday and headed to Savers. She's a good partner as she pointed out the Pyrex I showed you yesterday and says she likes to hear me babble. :) We are off on another adventure this weekend. Wish us luck!
So in addition to the napkins & napkin rings and the sheeting/fabric I have already showed you, this was my haul from last weekend:
tin - $1 - it's not vintage but it looks it, plus it's red. My favorite accent color!
whisk broom - $1 - it says Hungary on the handle.
wire basket - $2 - Oh so many uses
blue atlas jar - $49 cents - this is a new jar and was too cute to leave. I think I'll save it for swap goodies.
tinsel & 2 wooden Christmas ornaments - $1.99 - these were in a bag of goodies. I have to say, the first thing I head for lately are the bags of misc. crap. I've found some real treasures in there including those enamal Italian napkin rings I showed you
rick rack - $1.99 - this is a HUGE amount of blue rick rack. So if you get any mail from me, swap or otherwise, expect some blue rick rack.
Giants glass - 49 cents - Luis seems to use the thrifted Giants glasses I have found for him more than the our nice glasses.
wire basket - 99 cents - again, think of how many ways to use this! I can't resist a wire basket.
meat tenderizer - $1 - I needed one. Plain and simple.
So, I need your thoughts . . .
I'm still considering a "vintage" online store. I'd really like to offer a place where you can get quality items for a good price. I won't be one of those seller's who makes money on shipping, I plan to know pretty much what the shipping will cost and use flat rate boxes when I can. I also would like to have an area of "in search of" items. Like trying to find that creamer to go with my French Saxon China Thistle pattern sugar bowl! I'd like to have bartering as an option as well. So what do you think? And don't blow sunshine up my skirt, I want your real opinions. :)
What's doin' tonight? Curried Leek Soup, some crocheted baby booties and Ugly Betty.
