Two stops this week...same store....different days....and about $8.00 Let's see what I found!
An unassuming piece of pottery. Very earthy! No chips...loved it! Took off the lid and loved it more.
What a great glaze inside! I turned it over to see if it was signed...
even better! Muchelney pottery from England! I came home and read up on the guy...love this piece! And you can see I didn't pay an arm and a leg for it!
And then I found this piece for .75
It's signed by the artist and I just loved the dimension.
Although the hubs pointed out that you can't put a cup on it...or eat off of it...well DUH dear! I had to show him how lovely it looks HANGING on the WALL. I think he gets it. If not...he's not letting on! LOL
You may remember in earlier thrifty outings I've brought home an oversized brass key...and an oversized unknown brass bug. Well this little guy came home to join them.
He was my most expensive purchase at $2.50. But look....
his shell opens!
And then there were these pieces.
Another great pottery piece...loved the green ($1.00)! And the alabaster (?) apple paperweight ($1.50).
I also spotted another piece of Southern Living at Home...
The farmhouse wine caddy for a buck-fifty!
So many of you email me seeking tips on finding good stuff. I don't know what to say other than I do go often...which makes it easy to breeze thru the store and be able to spot new things. I read decorating magazines and blogs and always have my eye on antiques and such online, and that makes it easier to spot things that may have value over those things that do not. But mainly, honestly, I look for things I like (i.e. pottery, silver) and when I come across something that I can re-sell to recoup thrifty dollars, I'm giddy! This week...it's all staying home with me, but who knows what next week will find!
Enjoy your Thursday!!
