Thrifty Thursday

Yep I have the thrifting bug. Seriously. I love the treasure hunt and have taken to planning my precious free time while Emma is in school so that I can swing by and browse at least every couple of weeks. Although, I have discovered recently that she loves it as much as I do and is always happy to go and look at the old stuff with Mommy. My favorite thing is finding a treasure that is sporting the magically colored tag that indicates that it is 1/2 off & on this particular day I was very lucky. A rose plate to hang on the wall in Emma's room $2. A baskets to hold extra toiletries for guests in the studio $2, an embroidered hand towel $1, a vintage linen table runner $1, A glass jar .50, a beautiful blue dinner bell to use at Em's birthday tea party $2 & a white pottery crock to hold my kosher salt $2. Not pictured is a lovely pink cardigan to take to Barcelona for $2 and an adorable Look and Find Winnie the Pooh book for Emma for .65. Good times.

  12. Wow you did well. It seems that your thrift stores are so much better than ours in the UK. I find it hard to find any treasures and what I do find is pretty expensive. Maybe it's living in London and I would do better elsewhere. I just love that little rose plate you found and the basket. All so lovely.

  13. Thrifting is so much cheaper in the States!!
    I love your basket. (That would be £5 here!)
    And the embroidered linens are so pretty.

  14. I love the lace table runner. I can't believe that was only $1. Every time I see someone post about thrift stores I want to run out and shop.
