Thrifty Treasures #2

I will be joining our host, Rhoda, of Southern Hospitality for Today's Thrifty Treasures. Please stop by her blog to see what everyone's thrifty treasures are this week! To enlarge any picture, just click on it.

We went to my husband's high school reunion this weekend, I took a few minutes to head out to the thrift store. I found a few items, nothing spectacular like some people do!

Three pressed glass wines and 3 amber wines 79¢ each, 4 pressed glass sherbets 49¢ each and the largest purchase of the day, a Westmoreland milk glass pitcher $10.99.






I had been looking for yellow plates, which all of a sudden seem to be scarce; found 2 salad size for 99¢. I also scooped up the two little J&G Meakin plates in the Acantha pattern, ca. 1890, for 49¢ each. The white teapot with no markings and two gravy boats, which I will use for salad dressings were found here in town for 25¢ each.


The best purchase of the day was a Hobie International backpack purse for $3.99. It is almost in brand new condition.




A couple weeks ago there was an estate sale the next street from us and I found some pink glass...6 luncheon plates, 5 medium bowls, 1 small bowl and 6 mugs for $5.

For only finding a few things, your white pitcher is fabulous. Okay I will be on the look out for you for yellow dishes, and you be on the look out for sputnik plates. Deal? Have a great day.

I think you found some great pieces! I guess it all depends on what you are looking for to make it a "great find". I love the pressed glass. Love the backpack handbag ~ I think I have something similar in brown.

I can't believe it...my mother has had those same wine glasses since forever!!! On special occasions, she'd let my brother and I drink out of them. Thanks for the blast back to the past!
