Hello, friends! I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying October so far. Today I thought I'd share some of my favorite thrift shop finds of all times.
This Daher tray is 17 inches across. It is hung on part of an artist's easel on the wall by the front door.
It amazes me that this chest of drawers was made by my grandfather with hand tools.
I've always liked wooden nesting dolls and have found several sets and partial sets for very little in different thrift shops over the past twenty years.
This old bread box is my favorite red:
An old doll's dresser was less than a dollar. A couple of savvy looking pickers followed me around the store and asked me if I was sure I wanted it. The answer was YES!
I found this wheeled basket at the Sand Dollar for around $7.00. It had an aluminum handle, but I found wicker twisty wire and covered it, so it looks much better now.
It stays in the corner behind the front door filled with umbrellas and walking sticks.
Of course, none of these things are as precious as others, like Trixie
or Flossie, or
Butterball and Junior and the rest of the furry residents here.
That table is 33 inches across. Junior, even with his tail curled is nearly as wide as it is. The smudge on his nose makes it look bigger than it really is. Sometimes we call him Junior Durante.
I hope you're all enjoying these first golden days of October as much as I am. What are your special treasures, whether they're elegant and fancy or old and battered?
Till next time,
