I'm thrilled that we did because I found some great pieces! I thought I would share them with you. Come take a look.
When we first walked in I saw this wonderful collection. I was going to get the tea pot and one tea cup and saucer but then I noticed it was being sold as a set so I just had to get them. I also got the tray they are sitting on since it was only $3.00.
There were 6 plates, three tea cups but only 2 saucers and the tea pot. The whole set was $16.00 but on sale for 1/2 off which made it only $8.00 for all of them. Pretty good huh?
A little further into the store I saw plates and this one was on top. I picked it up quickly and saw it was only 65 cents. It went into my shopping cart right away. I'm going to hang it up in my office.
I almost missed this little hand painted plate. It was sitting off by it's lonesome self. I think someone started to get it then for some reason put it down. Either that, or they were trying to hide so they could come back later and get it. To bad for them. It's now safely in my home all cleaned up and ready to be hung up.
I guess you just never know when you will find some great treasures at the thrift stores. I had been to this one several times and hardly ever found anything. But today I lucked out. Maybe they just got these all in or something. I don't know what the reason was. I was just happy with my finds.
BTW, my brother, Gene, is doing great. Today we all went out to eat at his favorite restaurant. It was the first time he went out to eat since his stroke. It's good to see him starting to get back to his normal life again.
