Junkin Finds Friday



I can't believe it is already time for Junkin Finds Friday with Linda of A la Carte. Linda, thanks for hosting this fun meme...make sure you check out all the other finds and hopefully, keeps!

To enlarge any photo, just click on it.

I haven't had much luck thrifting until today...I found two Pashmina scarves for $1.99 each at Goodwill...one is a solid lime and the other is dark brown, almost black with a burnt orange with metallic gold threads throughout. They are both about 36"x80". I also found rattan charger plates, $1.99 for all four, 4 white dinner plates 49¢ each and a reversible quilted tablecloth, which was $4.49, which is more than I usually pay for a tablecloth at a thrift store.

There are a couple of other goodies that you will have to wait to see later in the month...possibly in a tablescape!

The scarves are incredibly soft...can you tell how much I love them? They were crammed in with the sheets, pillowcases, curtains, napkins, etc. I had to work to get them out far enough to see them. When I saw what they were, they went into my cart faster than you can blink!





The color of this one is very warm and rich, this photo makes it looked washed out, possibly by the time I got home the lighting wasn't very good so I had to use the flash.







Thanks for stopping by today, leave a comment so I know that you were here!

Beautiful Pashima, what a find! I love the color!

How nice is that to find...wow, the chargers too. You had a good scoring week.

Ilene said...

Oh, you SCORED! Lovely finds.

My tastes are very simple. I love old restaurant ware. Heh. I saw some white with red flowers on it that I didn't buy because I thought the price was a little high. But it was a set and had a lot of pieces. I've kicked myself ever since for not buying it.

So, if you see something that makes you hold your breath, even if it's a little more than what you would ordinarily pay, it's almost always worth it to go ahead and get it.

Hugs, Ilene

Super finds....sure makes it worth going to GW when you score big. And you sure did with the scarves. Love the rattan chargers, too.

What a great deal on the scarves. I brought home one that I had given my mom a few years ago...barely pink and so soft. I remember what I paid for it...you really got lucky!

Oh, I am drooling. Love those Pashminas, I don't blame you for grabbing them up, because I would have done the same thing and then looked around to see if anyone else saw them! Did I mention I really love those? Lucky Lady!

Those rattan charger plates are just up my alley too, wish my thrift store would have something as ducky as those. I can't wait to see how you use them in a tablescape, you know how much I love your creative use of dishes. I must give it a try one of these days.

btw, you can never have enough white plates and those are gorgeous. I need to locate some to put with my China to stretch it out for family dinners. :)

To answer your question...I am still in the West Valley, in Avondale, which use to be nothing but has grown up all around Indian School and 107th all the way down to Lower Buckeye...can you believe it. Will be taking pictures of the house tomorrow and posting. Need some ideas on where to put things, your input is always appreciated.

Have a perfect weekend. Happy Holidays...

Wonderful finds! The scarves are gorgeous.

Debbie said...

I would never find those chargers or pashmina at our Goodwill! It seems as though I would have to go daily to get the good finds :-) But I am thrilled that you are finding some wonderful items!

Great finds! I love the scarves. Don't you just love the hunt at Goodwill? My husband thinks I'm nuts but I would rather go there than to the mall.
Thanks for visiting and your sweet comment, Annette
