Who says they can't find a deal? Tuesdays, although still putting in some time in the garden, have become Thrift Store Day. Today was no different. I ran over to the Southgate Salvation Army, always a treasure trove, and found a few things. I also went around the corner from work a few days ago and checked out Cherished Again. I hadn't been there in a while, and sometimes they have something nice and cheap (but usually not nice and a bit pricey). I found a Heywood-Wakefield buffet for the bargain price of $295 (in case you are looking-I didn't buy it), but the rest of the furniture I really wouldn't want to cherish once, let alone again. Still, there are things to be found if you dig a little.
I also posted some finds I forgot to post a few weeks ago...
|A nice brass tray (cocktails?) that should clean up pretty well. $1.50 (from Cherished Again)|
|At Southgate I found this nice, heavy, silver plate tray. $1.25|
|Also a little silver box for $.40. It is destined for desk top thumb tack and paper clip duty.|
|I spotted this at Cherished Again under a bunch of picture frames. I think it was $4.00.|
|A silver chest in pretty good shape (so I can take my overflow silver out of their baggies in the trash bag drawer).|
|More milk glass. (Seriously, brides-to-be, there may be a Matt Gallaway Collection exclusively rented through All Occasion quite soon. Perfect vintage pieces for your wedding day).|
|AND it's Oleg Cassini.|
|This jacket is what I passed over Oleg for a few weeks ago. It needs to be tailored (so I've been told-and it does-waaaaay too large), but...|
|It was $3 and Oscar de la Renta.|
|Oh! And I almost forgot the $5 J Crew puffy vest I found on my visit to Warsaw. I love it...perfect for working outside. Or hunting.|
