And no, she doesn't really care.
Subtitled: Lets all go to the thrift store!
Ya know, every now and again, in the midst of thrifting, you have a day where ya just seem to hit the jackpot where ever ya go. Whether it be garage sales, or real thrift stores.
That was our day, yesterday.
We found a few things on our lists and a few more that should of been on it :D
We found two of these beauties at the Salvation Army. Price? A staggering $8.00 each. They were brand new in the box & they had all hardward included.
A classic, retro cookie jar. $4.00. Looks awesome in my kitchen and will be perfect for my big hand gettin' in there to grab a doggy cookie, shhhh...---::we whisper or spell that word around here::--.
As soon as we get the back-splashes finished, I can show pics of the finished kitchen.
How about a sofa table? Yep. Got it at Salvation Army. $60. Looks brand spankin' new. Perfect size. Love it!
Oh, and the dishes! I had been thinking it might be time to retire the Homer Laughlin restaurant ware for something different.
I knew these were perfect the moment I saw 'em, 'cause I actually gasped out loud. Yeah, I did it sorta quietly, like, to myself. I'm pretty sure.....
There were 8 of the Dinner and, of course, 7 of the Salad plates. But, whata ya know? I went on the bay of E, and found another Salad plate. 'Cause, that's what they're there for.
We also found a very cute, clean looking, wing-back chair at Salvation Army. It'll be steam cleaned, arranged in the L room, and I'll snap a pic.
This is the print..
So, now it's back to getting more stuff outta boxes and putting things away and/or up on the walls.
After 3 or 4 boxes, we usually need to make a run to either a hardware store, or a thrift store!
But hey, that's always fun!
