Hello there on this wonderful Thursday morning! One day closer to Friday, AND it's time to share Thrifty Thursday finds!
Monday, the hubs and I set out to check out a few of our favorite places.
Stop 1 - GWilly's West.
Zip..Zilch...Nada.....nothing called out to me.
We move on...because this day the hubs is just determined to find a prized treasure...something Antiques Roadshow worthy...or at least something worth more than he paid! ;o)
Stop 2 - a thrift store run by the YMCA
All of my finds this week were from here...much to the hubs' dismay.
Yes dear...that is another crazed covered vegetable dish without the cover.
Yes dear, I realize I already have two others at home. I love to set them atop a stack of books. They're wonderful to 'gather' those little things....scissors end up in there, a thimble, spool of thread...they have a purpose and I love 'em!
And yes dear, that IS a regular ol' softball. I have a couple more at home..along with a couple old baseballs. Once when I was out with my pal, Blogless Kimm (Hi Kimm!), we stopped at a shop that had a LOVELY display....baseballs..all piled up...old baseballs...with greenery stuck in and among them...and flags! Little Old Glories on sticks...I LOVED it! And have been collecting to duplicate that display! So yes dear, the softball IS coming home with me.
What's that silver thing, he asks. A porridger dear! Don't you know I collect these!?!?!? ;o) I have three others at home, but none with a double handle. It was .69...it's coming home. Once I got home, I noticed it has some interesting marks on the underside, so I may research that piece a bit more! I don't know what it is about porridgers. But I do love 'em!
And then...I spied it....
A very large Longaberger basket. I broke out in a big grin when I saw it across the sales floor...I was beaming as I walked over and picked it up. Hubs followed...in complete disbelief. "Nu-uh!" he says. "I wanted to find one of those!!!" he feigns anger...but really it was just jealousy because I found the treasure of the day!
Isn't it lovely?
But uh-oh....someone has glued something to the inside at one point in time...
That's okay! I can deal with that! I'll just pick this stuff off (ha! not gonna happen very easily). It's still worth the price.
Oh joy..the price...
It's in wonderful condition other than the glued stuff on the inside rim. No broken splints or stains...just some cobwebs. $2.99!!!
I'm still stunned. And the hubs is still jealous! ;o)
We moved on to stop #3 - GWilly's central....and I picked up another large Anchor Hocking glass canister for $4 but that was the extent of it. No Antiques Roadshow treasures. Hubs is still disappointed. Maybe he'll have better luck next time out.
