Thrift Store Thursday—9/17

I made another stop at the consignment store outlet this week; this time I found a pair of Gap jeans, $1, and an American Girl craft book, $.25.


At the Salvation Army, a small white platter, $1.29, and 4 clear glass plates, 4/$1.49.  I keep the clear plates on hand for making mini cake plates.


At Goodwill, a Crate and Barrel platter, $1.  This currently sells on the website for $26.95.


At United Volunteers 25% off day, a book for the kids, $.30.  I bought it because of the Boston terrier; we have two of them.


Also, this pack of children’s playing cards (on the right), $.30.  The pack on the left was given to me when my little brother was born thirty-cough-cough years ago.  Same box, same pattern on the reverse side; I’m assuming these are from the same era, although they look like they’ve never been used.

Notice the suits:  hearts, diamonds, stars, and anchors.


And lastly, again from UV, what I believe has turned out to be my favorite purchase this week—a hobnail milkglass planter, $.75.


If I added correctly, that’s $6.38 for the week.

Of course, I didn’t show you everything I got, because I also shopped for the giveaway!  Keeping you in suspense!

Great buys-
The Crate and Barrel platter is neat and so is the planter.
I'm still having a white moment.

Cheryl said...

Great treasures! I collect milkglass, I've got a couple of those very same little bowlies myself :-)

Over at the larger bookstores (barnes & noble etc) they have books on milkglass-- oh-my-goodness, so worth going and looking at! There are photos of milkglass items you will probably never see in your lifetime except for in those books.

Hi Holly!
Wow, what a great bargain on the Crate & Barrel plate! Awesome deal.

Caro's Thrifty Adventures said...

Hi Holly! THanks for the comment on my blog :)

I can't believe you were born in Lachine!
I'm in Laval, which is just north of Montreal.
My dad was born and raised in Lachine!!
