Every Thursday, I bring you photos of unique treasures that I've picked up while secondhand shopping. Even though it appears like I find something every time I go to the thrift store or garage sale, it's not actually like that. I'm not that lucky:)
I've been to two estate sales, two thrift stores, and one yard sale within the last week, and didn't buy a thing at any of them.
As I tell my kids, sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't! (Remember that from the old Almond Joy commercials? You wouldn't believe how often I work a commercial jingle into my conversations:)
Anyway, last week I did have a successful outing at the local thrift stores.
Isn't this doily beautiful?! I only paid $.50 for it.
I got this platter for fifty cents.
It's not real silver, but I keep a few of these on hand for decorating.
Have you ever tried putting a couple of old books on an old silver platter?
Take my word for it- it's cute!
I believe this is a hot pad as it's rather thick for a doily.
That handiwork is amazing, eh?
I paid another fifty cents for this partially used bolt of lace.
For some reason, I love buying lace in bulk.
I found yet another silver platter. This one is heavy duty, so it cost $1.50.
I know it needs a good cleaning, but I'm up for the challenge.
I really love the trim around the edges.
I got this old pendant for $1.50.
The back of this guy is a tiny mirror.
I'd really like to figure out how to switch out the rose on here for a different color.
Last, but not least, I found this old leather belt for a dollar.
One of these days, I'm going to sit down and turn my thrifted leather belts into bracelets.
I wish you all luck with your secondhand shopping this week!
Thanks for stopping by and God bless.
Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!
