Thrifty Treasures - Monday, August 17, 2009

Lately, my daughters and I have been going thrifting. I thought I would share some of my treasures that I found at yard sales this week.

Forgive my photography skills! The cut glass cake stand in front I bargained with the owner and got it for $3. She wanted $10. It swivels.

The fish platter was 25¢, the blue and green platters (have fish around their borders) were 10¢ each. The twin turntable was a bargain at 25¢. Turntables are so useful! I already own 5 of them and can always use more.

Lastly, the rusty brass candle holder was 50¢. I'm pretty sure I owned one of these 20 years ago or more. I'm going to spray paint it, probably black.

Next, I found a corningware casserole dish for $2. A baking dish that I think is the perfect size for baking a row of enchiladas was also $2. It's not corningware though. I can't find any manufacturer markings at all.

This picture doesn't do it justice, but the big glass canister jar has fruit embossed all around it's circumference. I paid $2 for it. The cookbook stand was 50¢ as was the ivy plate stand. I'm thinking of painting it black also. The small cut glass bowls was 50¢ for the set of 5. I'm going to use them as condiment cups. Oh, the amount of honey-mustard sauce, ketchup, and sweet and sour sauce we use around my house! At least they will be presented nicely from now on!

It was a lot of fun, although it was getting pretty hot by the time we quit at 11 a.m. I can't wait to go again!

If you'd like to see more yard sale treasures, visit Rhoda at Southern Hospitality.

Isn't it fun to find things? You did get some nice bargains! Like the cake plate that is like a lazy susan. I saw a three cornflower blue casserole dishes in a garage sale the other day- they wanted $25 for the set! They certainly put a high value on THEIR merchandise, didn't they? Thanks for visiting me.
