Thrift Treasures This Week


I managed to find a couple of  pretty things at a mission store this week.  It’s a huge place – it takes me forever to walk through all the sections.  It’s fun if I am not on a schedule, but I was this time.  I pretty much raced through the place.  I could kick myself for putting back a couple of things.  I just couldn’t make decisions under pressure!!!!



The Vintage Lot



I plan on hanging necklaces, bracelets, and earrings on this little towel stand.

I adore the base.



I actually picked these white dishes up at an antique store with #4 sister.

Wouldn’t they be wonderful in a shadowbox?



Lovin’ this pattern -  It looks White House worthy!

I paid .50 each.   On E-Bay,  the butter pat dish is $7.95.

The dessert plate is $9.95.

  10. I love the idea using the towel holder...and I so love the white dishes. They're beautiful as are the blue and white Syracuse china. It's all lovely..
    P.S. I also have thrift shopped in a hurry..and left things behind that I shouldn't have. I get home and whimper to myself..why did you leave that??????. Even if i go back the next day, it's never still there..

  11. I love the little milk glass dishes and the towel holder is a great find!

  12. You found some fun things. And those dishes certainly are White House worthy! Very elegant.

  16. Love the little white dishes - great find. As for the Syracuse China, I live in the Syacuse area and they closed the plant last spring...so the price of pieces has risen tremendously because of that. They are now operating out of another country - go figure. But their outlet used to be so fun to go to and I really miss it - so, enjoy!

  17. The white plates are definitly my favorite too! They would look great anywhere!

  18. Wonderful finds, Rhonda! I love those white plates, especially.

  19. Those are darling white dishes! What great finds you have there! :o) Trish

  20. Definitely White House worthy. Love that green and white and one can never have too many white dishes.

  21. There are a few little white milk glass dishes like the ones you picked up in the shop I work at ~ thanks for the great idea!!!

  22. white house worthy items,
    what a discovery...
