I'm joining in on Rhoda's (Southern Hospitality) yardsale/thriftstore linky party! I don't think I've mentioned how much my husband enjoys going to the thriftstore! He always finds good stuff too and one day I'll do a post on all the great deals he finds! But as usual, these are things I've found in the past few weeks. All pictures will enlarge when you click on them.
I was looking through the linens at the thriftstore (not Goodwill) and this caught my eye. The pattern looked familiar so I pulled it out.....
It's the coordinating fabric to one of my favorite plates! It's actually a twin size sheet. I could use it as tablecloth but I think I'll make some cute pillows and/or placemats from it for next summer.
These are some finds I'm particularly happy about. I've gotten brand new tupperware, old time fruit juicer, Ball Jars, books, The Firm exercise DVD's and some other useful items as well. But, I thought most people would be interested in seeing these.
I love soup tureens! I have a bunch of white ones but only one red transferware one. So when I found this one at this great price I had to buy it! $5.65 was the price!
I think it fits right in with some of my other red and white china!
I love it!
I also love this great candlestick I got with the harlequin pattern and fleurs on it. I love checkerboard/harlequin patterns and use them throughout my home as well as fleur de lis. I'll use it this fall/winter when I put my white candlesticks away and bring out the black ones.
I don't know how many yards of white eyelet(shown in the main pic above) trim is on that spool but it looks pretty full. It originally had 18 yards at $3.19 a yard and I got the whole thing for $3.13. I'm making a pillow for my Blue Toile room and I think I'll use some of that to trim it! I also really love this old hand mirror that I got!
It's really heavy - I don't know if that means anything. But it was pretty and I'd like to make the top of my dresser prettier so I thought this would fit in and it's useful too!
Now, some of you may laugh, but this next find is one of my favorites! A whole bag of pre-threaded needles!! I think I hear some snickering! My husband and I were so thrilled to find this. We both have trouble threading a needle!! These are great for things that need a quick little repair. I'll also keep one in my purse and he'll put one in his suitcase.
Lastly, this cute basket! The inside is lined. I have no idea what it's for, but we all thought it was the cutest thing! So I'll either use it for storage or maybe fill it with some faux flowers and hang it somewhere. That would be pretty don't you think?
Be sure to check out Rhoda's blog (Southern Hospitality) for more thrifty finds! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great week everyone!
