I must admit I am liking having this Thrifty Thursday 'column' each week....makes me make a point to stop off at a thrifting jaunt or two or three each week! Like I need prodding! LOL
This week finds me being the new owner of another globe.....this makes number 3.
Don't ask me why. I do not know. The first two I purchased at an elderly lady's garage sale a couple months back....she had a dollar a piece on them...and they weren't horribly old, but I just loved them and bought both. Then this one crossed my path Tuesday evening. It was a bit off it's axis....but having been off my own axis a time or two, I figured it would be an easy fix...and it was. :o) And this one has more features than the other two.....I'm pleased...
Hmmmm...does this mean I collect globes now? EEEEEK! Sssssshhhhh...don't tell the hubby! LOL
I also stumbled upon these great little finds for fifty cents each!
Once upon a time I was watching HGTV when they used to have good home shows on...I believe it was Country at Home or something like that...anyhooo...they showcased a couple's home, and the gentleman inhabitant collected corkscrews!
On our recent trip to Omaha, my friend Kimm and I discussed this episode while discussing what would be cool collections to start....though I've never really seen an old corkscrew on my thrifting adventures...this is the first. And the first of my collection! ;o) Exciting stuff huh? :o)
And the mug! A SAMPLER mug! I thought for certain I would turn it over and there would be a "Made in China" sticker on it.....
I mean...it's a sampler! on a coffee mug! But look...
I think it's rather vintage...don't you think? I had to grab it! I mean...it's a SAMPLER!!
And...speaking of new collections....I also saw a collection in a magazine that I thought was way cool....but of course thought to myself I would NEVER find such things at my GWilly's....but...
Surely it's a sign that I am MEANT to have a collection of these!
Billiard balls!!! Colorful wonderful billiard balls! Several of them are very very old!!! And two BUCKS! I have NEVER seen such things on prior visits. It was meant to be! Another collection in the making! ;o)
It was a fun thrifting week!! What fun and/or odd things do YOU collect? I'd love to hear from you!
