Thrifty Treasures for the Week

Thanks you guys for all of your kinds word for the loss of my Restoration Hardware clearance store. It was a sad day but I am over it now. I moved on. To the thrift stores to be exact. 

I found a few things this week that I thought I'd share. First up is this chair I spotted as soon as I walked into the Lutheran thrift store nearby. Those Lutherans sure know how to price their things right. I picked up this little beauty for $3. I really like the shape of the back and the wide seat.


It even has nice shapely legs. Sort of straight and fluted up front and curved in the back. I will have to get some stripper for this one as the paint is peeling and well, it's not the best idea to put good paint over bad. I don't think it will be too hard to get it off. Knock on wood. Did you knock?


The ironstone platter I picked up for $1 and it will replace the one that I broke when I was hanging up my triangle shaped window frame. It's not as pretty but I have an idea to spruce it up a bit. The stack of white dishes were actually two stacks of 4. When I saw there were eight matching plates I grabbed both stacks. Eight plates for $2, not bad at all. They have this pretty rope detail on the edge. Hope you can see it. I am still having issues photographing white things.



The small milk glass dish was yet again, just $1. I just loved the ruffled edge.



I'm glad that my thrift store luck is coming back. It really comes in waves around here. I guess that's true for a lot of you. Have you all been having any luck or have you lost your mojo?

  24. Love your chair and white dishes. Great thrifty finds. Lately I have not found much at our Goodwill. They seem to be in a slowdown of quality donations. I keep hoping and going though. I am the eternal optimist.

    Hugs, Jeanne
