Latest Thrift Store Treasures

Don't you love recycling!  I had to deliver some things to the Goodwill store and one of my favorite thrift stores last week and, of course, picked up some things needing a home.

The is James Sadler, Thameside.  A cute little tea bag holder thing.  Gotta love it for a quarter.

This is Warren Kimble, Coastal Breeze Lighthouse.  I'm not that crazy about the lighthouse theme, but I thought with the flag they would be perfect for July.  They only had two for $1.00 for the set!

 7 of these salad plates for $2.25. 

These are Mikasa Renaissance L2019 from the 70's.  I've been drawn to brownish dishware lately so for about $.30 I'm sure I'll be able to use them.

And last but not least in the dish arena, was this little white and gold leaf shape from Occupied Japan. 

I also picked up a few linens that are soaking. Ya just can't have too many white table cloths. They are that white on white slick kind of fabric that irons up so crisp and nice. I don't know what it's called, but it's got that really soft feel. Love it.  Picked up a couple of tablecloths and some little luncheon/tea napkins.

That's it for this week's thrift store trip.  Thanks for visiting.  Have a great weekend.

    i can't tell you how much i appreciate your comment in response to my lateness at the office. it's funny, but that upset me for the rest of the day and into the evening. at work, we park 1 car behind the other. it just burns me up that yesterday and today i had to wait 10 minutes (b/c i was here on time) to have someone to pull behind so i can be on the outside since i travel alot.

    thank you for your encouragement and for stopping by the cape on the corner!
