Thrift Store Thursday

Goodwill Goodies

IMG_262412” Wedgwood Platter, $2

IMG_2631 Shallow basket, 20” wide, with lid, $2. I’m going to keep cds and dvds in it, under the entertainment center. I think I’ll spray paint it.

Salvation Army Surprises

IMG_2607 Large glass jar w/ latched lid, $1.29. Vase, $1.29. Covered candy dish, $.69. Six ceramic napkin rings (one not shown) $1.29—they’re actually kind of weirdly shaped, but I thought if everyone had their own for their cloth napkins it would prevent confusion and encourage use.

Resale Recreation

IMG_2627 Brand new Monopoly, $2. Wooden Chinese checkers, $2. Found these at a new-to-me thrift store that benefits foster families. I haven’t played Monopoly in years. We set it up last night, and everyone, down to the 6-yr-old, was able to play, and they all loved it!

Show us whatcha got!

I love your finds! Of course, I especially love the platter. I posted my finds on my blog and linked to your website.

Baskets are the best deal at the thrift store. I bet someone paid $30 for that basket. Yay for family game time!

Okay, I think a vase will have to be my first hunt- or a shallow footed dish to hold my number spheres. ;) Love your platter!

Never thought of that... to look for baskets at the thrift shop. Really nice finds.

Oooh I just love game nights. Is there anything more thrifty and fun?
