Time for another Thrifty Thursday!
Last Saturday I met three great friends downtown to stroll the shops, eat some lunch, and have some girl-time! Christy, Jen & Kimm are always so much fun to be around and we had a great time! When we disbanded early afternoon, Kimm quickly called me on my cell to see if I wanted to trek over to the east side of town for some thrifting before I headed home. SURE! Don't have to ask me twice! Off to the east side G'Willy's we went! And here's what I found!
Do you love these basketweave pieces?
This one was two bucks....marked Made in Japan...and has some age to it. I just love the bottom and decided even if the lid was missing, I would have picked it up!
We continued on thru the store and Kimm quickly spied a distant cousin!
Same Made in Japan mark....though the basketweave pattern is different, clearly these were made in the same vein!
Similar floral motif on the lid, though this one was much more detailed...and I think a bit older...
I LOVE the crazing...the slight color change from the age....and this one was three bucks!
Picked up a lovely piece of English china for fifty cents...
I can't pass up good English china with a fruit motif! Cup, plate, bowl..whatever, it's destined to come home with me. A weakness....one of many.
And then I found a new little addition to my orphaned salt/pepper shakers! Isn't it sweet?
Mother of pearl inlaid in the silver lid...so tiny...and sweet...and mine for a buck. :o)
A wonderful way to spend a Saturday....the morning with good friends shopping, lunching and laughing....and the afternoon with blogless Kimm trolling our fav' thrift haunts! Perfect fodder for Thrifty Thursday!
