I've been hitting the thrift stores quite hard the past month or two, especially the ones I rarely go to (such as the Goodwill on Coliseum). Happily, I've been having some pretty awesome results. Take a look...
|This 50 cent brown earthenware bowl has already become quite useful in the kitchen.|
|I don't collect lusterware (much) but this shell dish was in such perfect condition, I couldn't resist.|
|An old, throwaway pottery piece works great as a catch-all on my desk.|
|I absolutely love this metal faux bois file box. It will look much better than the bulky, ugly black plastic one I currently use. It put me out $3.|
|And of course I bought dishes (oops!)...starting with these Martha Stewart Everyday (back when Martha was still at K-Mart) Christmas plates. Two have chips, but they were only 75 cents for the salad plates, and 95 cents for the dinner plates.|
