My terrific thrifty haul....







My head did a 360 yesterday when at Goodwill I found the old yellow tin canisters. They have the sweetest painted flowers on them! The complete set was only 6.99! I thought I don't care if I don't find anything else........ I am a happy woman. My thrifty mojo was going strong though... because I also found the old plaid picnic basket for 6.00 and the aqua blue trays! They were .50 a piece and the little dog and glass seashells. The cheese plates I had seen online before and had always admired them. I only took two of a 4 piece set. Found the little glass pitcher? Not sure if that is what it is but it has a little lip to pour something. It has the word "ours" etched on it. Does anyone know what it was used for? I have seen them before but not with words on them. Also found some pretty plates and two old santa mugs not shown. Anyways this maybe one of my last hauls with winter coming so it ended well. Our thrift stores in the local vicinity slow down quite a bit (not as many people donating) during the Winter. Hope everyone is doing well on this almost Autumn weekend. Happy weekend all! xoxo, cherry

I agree with Robin! Those canisters are to die for. And I love those trays. My sister has a pitcher very similar to the one in your picture and it has her last name etched on it just as that one is. Maybe it was the owner's last name??

Great finds!

Love,
Julie

Looks like you found the best stuff yet at the thrift store! I was there this weekend, but it was a bust! Better luck next time. Love the trays and the cannister set!

It looks like you had a good day....love all of your sweet treasures! I went to a few sales this weekend and found some great things as well. I'm hoping to post about them this week.

Oh, my dearest Cherry, how I have missed you to!! Looks like you have been having some fun. Can't believe your finds - I would have been arrested for doing the happy dance in aisle five to the point of distracting the other customers! I live in the Northern top part of Idaho and was AMAZED at how LESS expensive the thrift stores were in the Cali Bay Area! Plus, the Cali stores had incredible stuff! Nothing that I could haul home on Southwest though, dang it. Lovies - Esther

What a productive thrifting day! I don't often get that lucky at the Goodwill. Those canisters would look so great in my kitchen. I need to keep my eyes pealed for something like that.

Sweet Cottage Dreams said...

Wow! Our Goodwill never has things like this! Great finds and love the trays and picnic basket. That dog and those canisters are fun, too! Makes me want to get out there and go hunting!!

I LOVE the plaid picnic basket! My parents had one just like it when I was young. I look but never find one that is affordable! I need to get by my Goodwill more often!! : )
