So, I *did* make it over to the Value Village yesterday morning and spent 2 (yes, TWO) hours in there picking up all sorts of goodies! I'm proud to say that I spent $12 and some change and came home with a bag full of stuff. Plus something that wouldn't fit it a bag, which may be my new favorite item ever found thrifting!
And, I remembered to get my battery charger outta my husband's truck so I could charge the batteries for my camera and I'm proud to say that I have new pictures to share. It's been a very long time since I've shared any, so I'm happy that I can do that today!
First up, some of my fabulous finds from the other week.
These are the cute little Exxon/Esso Tiger napkins and coasters. Aren't they cute?
And here's the box of vintage Christmas Ornaments I scored at the Goodwill a couple of weeks back. Sorry for the blurry picture. I'm too lazy to retake it.
And the fabulous punch bowl, with 12 cups and hooks and ladle. For $2.50! Did I mention this thing weighs like 15 pounds? Yeah, it's heavy!
And the vintage chopper thingamajig and a vintage juice pitcher. Look! That apron in the background is the one I won over at Confessions of an Apron Queen. Be sure to check out her blog!!
And finally, here are my purchases from yesterday.
Here's a cute box of hot pink ornaments. I'm guessing they are vintage because the graphics on the box don't really look like anything currently on the market but who knows. I just like the color of the ornaments so into my shopping cart they went!
And a bag full of vintage Shiny Brite ornaments. I especially like the ones that are see-thru. A bag of Shiny Brites only set me back 45 cents. Score!
Look at this cute little paper Santa. I have no idea what his original purpose was. He was it a little plastic bag with other misc. stuff like those paper bell things. Only they weren't bell shaped so I have no idea what they are supposed to be either. But Santa was inside with that and for a quarter, I figured he could come home with me too.
Here is one of two aprons I picked up yesterday. This one needs a good soaking to remove some spots but otherwise, it's in good condition. You can't see it in the picture, but the top of the apron says "Portugal" on it.
And here is the second apron. A cute, pink gingham apron. I just love gingham aprons. I think they are my favorite! It needs a good soak too but it's in good condition otherwise!
And last but not least, my favorite find in quite a while. Check out this vintage, chrome canister set. It has holes on the back for it to be mounted on a wall. And it's in pretty good condition too! It needs a good cleaning and I'm sure the chrome will shine right up. I love it!
I also picked up two more souvenir plates to add to my collection but the pictures turned out blurry. Maybe when Will finally gets my plates put up on the wall, I can take a picture to share. That's something else I can add to the honey-do list for this weekend!!
Thanks for checking out my newest finds!
