I don't get to go shopping in thrift stores or markets that much these days! My boys are older now and not so happy to be fobbed off with a little toy while I browse so I don't inflict the experience on them. But in the last couple of weeks I've made some time for myself and hit a little rummage sale and a couple of thrift stores and found lots of lovely things, here they are...
Some pretty pieces of china - $1 each.
I love putting mismatched patterns together and seeing how lovely they can look.
This little olive dish was 50 cents.
Only $2 for this Villeroy and Boch dish.
A cute little Royal Doulton bowl for $1.
This chicken-shaped wire egg basket was a steal at 50 cents! I've wanted one of these ever since spotting one in Nigella's kitchen :-)
I'm not really a "pink girl" but occasional little pieces contrast nicely with all my robin-egg blue kitchenware, this bowl was $1.
My tiniest bowl ever - 20 cents.
I still can't believe I scored this harlequin set of Pyrex ramekins for only $1!
I LOVE this turquoise and white platter - only $2.
A set of tasting spoons (I am building a little collection of these) - $2.
A pair of salad hands - 50 cents.
This multi-aperture box frame (brand new in its packaging) only cost $1. I think I'll do a montage of beach pictures in it :-)
Hello little dolphin - 50 cents. My youngest spotted this on my bookshelf and exclaimed "That's MY dolphin"! Now he won't give it back.
That's a sum total of $15.20! I'm happy with that!
