Frugalicious Friday Finds

I had a lovely time this week going to about five thrift shops on one street close to my house. Of course, when you find out that everything you are looking at is half off you get very excited!!!


The glass jars were 50 cents each. I LOVE the tall one. It is an English sweetie jar.  The two turquoise place mats were also 50 cents each.  A few foot long dowels to make hanging banners with. Some plastic canvas for a quarter, to put in the bottom of hand made bags.

On the turquoise damask table cloth  are some bits of silver plate and behind is a Beaumont Pottery plate from the 1990's that I have quite a few pieces of.

I love it when your thrifting experience goes well.
