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!
