I have a small pile of thrifted dishes now. Some of them are probably going to have to go in the ‘for sale’ pile but I’m having a hard time deciding which ones. I have the same problem with all the chairs I find myself ending up with.
These cute little dishes got used today – my husband warmed sauce for bread sticks in them and we each had our own little bowl. There are actually 4 of these but one was being used already by the time I took the pics.
There are 4 of these also. I may have to keep these at least for a while. They are white. They are just the right size. My kids are always wanting little ‘cups’ for yogurt or dip or ketchup – they even use them to drink milk sometimes.
The basket is kind of cute. It was super cheap. It was a great way to carry around the little dishes as I searched through clothes with my nine-year old. She found a faux leather jacket. She begged and begged. It was $8.99 – BUT the ticket was green and green was half off that day. She got the faux leather coat.
I’m sure you noticed this little guy peeking his head into the other photos! He cost more than I like to pay at a thrift store. Goodwill seems to be figuring out what is ‘in’ and ‘cool’. His price tag was $4.99. But I grabbed him up immediately, and even though I did debate a bit over the price I never put him back on the shelf. I saw some of these at Christmastime with price tags around $40 and $50. And I knew that if I left him there I would long regret it.
My first thought was to use some white chalk paint on him but now I’m leaning towards some silver rub and buff. I used copper and then silver rub and buff on the vase I put my faux peonies in – you can see it here. I love how the stuff works and think I’m going to see what it will do for this little guy.
Even though I’ve picked up a few little things here and there I am ready to go for an all-day thrift trip. Anyone local want to go?
Have you found any fun thrift finds lately? I’d love to hear about them!
Have a Happy Monday!
