Thrift Store Goods

 My daughter and I went thrifting last week, she for clothing and me for whatever vintage find  I couldn't live with out. I found a thirty piece set of vintage Homer Laughlin China for 7.00 bucks. Woo Hoo, I was so excited I scooped it up and ran to the checkout. I have a few other pieces that I paid 1.00 or more for each piece so this was a really good buy. The pattern is so delicate and pretty I was smitten. I had to get it  Right? What do you think?





I would have paid seven bucks just for the sugar  bowl or creamer. The thrift store where I bought these raise money for the community food bank. They have lots of great stuff at really good prices.


I also found a couple of small Johnson Brother pieces at the Good Will store.They were half off so I paid 1.50 for each piece.



There's  a guy who does a show in the Mall. He sells vintage furniture and other items. I always find something great at his show and for a really great price. This time I found something  I have wanted for a long time. I almost did the happy dance when I found it . A vintage Coke crate nice and shabby.


I found a box of vintage doilies at the hospital affiliated thrift store for .79 cents for 100. I like the packaging as much as the doilies. I have lots of craft projects in mind for these.


I also found this pretty monogrammed  silver plated bowl at the same thrift store. It's heavily tarnished but if I choose to clean it up I'm sure it will be gorgeous.

I have a thing for these silver bowls. Every time  I find one I have to buy it. I think I got a lot of great things and didn't spend too much money, that's a win win in my book. The only problem is where in the heck am I gonna put this stuff?  I'll squeeze it in some how. LOL. Who said they were calling hoarders? LOL.


I'm joining Kim at  Savvy Southern Style  for Wow Us Wednesday And No Minimalst Here  for the Open House Party and  French Country Cottage for Feathered Nest Friday and  My Romantic Home for Show And  Tell Friday, and Linda at Coastal Charm for Nifty Thrifty Tuesday, White Ironstone Cottage  for Treasure Chest Friday.

  12. I absolutely would have bought that china!!! It is so pretty and the pattern isn't worn off. So often when I find a pretty set, I can tell that it has been washed in the dishwasher, the pattern is completely worn off.
    Your other finds are great too! Especially that coke crate, lucky you!
    Hugs, Cindy

  26. OMG! Homer for $7??! Yes you had to get them!! Love the delicate designs from HL. I have a tea set and cuts in the Eggshell I will be listing soon on Etsy. Similar but different pattern that yours. It's called Bridal Wreath...just the name makes me want to keep it...but alas no room at the inn.

    Congrats at all your great finds!

  27. Karen, Could I please go thifting with you? :) You found some great things. I love any pattern by Johnson Bros. and I have the same love of the Revere bowls. I must have at least 4 or 5 of them which I actually use. lol The Homer Laughlin pieces are so lovely and delicate. I can see why you grabbed those.
    Have a great time thrifting,
    Babs

  31. What lovely treasures you found! I am never that lucky...maybe because I am not patient and it takes patience and persistence to look for treasures like these. And Home Laughlin pieces...wow!
