Bought, Sold and Free

Not buying much lately because I’m focusing on getting already purchased items listed in my stores, but I did nip into a few thrift stores this week. (No sense going cold turkey!) I found a framed, needlepoint picture of the Mona Lisa that was weird and fabulous and made my heart beat faster, but it was $50. Yowee! I took a pass on that 😦

But I did buy a few lovely bits…

1-glassdish

Two interesting-looking, bubbly glass dishes/ashtrays caught my attention right away. These could be used for all kinds of things.

1-yellowafghan4

Love this expertly handknit afghan. I’m tired just thinking of all the work that went into this! It’s in pristine condition and even smells fresh and clean.

1-Norway1

A Norwegian peanut shaker…who knew there was such a thing!?! Apparently this was part of the Royal Viking Cruise Lines dining room dishes in the 1970s.

And a few lovely bits have already sold this month…sad to see my wiseman go!!

And in the free category, my oldest daughter and I found two very shabby, but functional outdoor wicker and metal chairs by the side of the road. Since we are lacking in outdoor seating we nabbed ’em. I figure with a little TLC and paint, they’ll be just fine. Though I have to admit I don’t mind them like this either!!

How about you? Any good finds?
