I'm so glad there's a thrift store beside a post office in a nearby town! Had to get to the P.O. by noon today (drat those Saturday hours!) and Mister said, "Let's go to the other one and stop in at the thrift store." Did you hear me complaining? Got lots of loot real cheap today, here's some of it:
I just love this yellow plate! It has the prettiest Spring flowers on it, and will be hung in my yellow pantry. The red saucer is a W. H. Grindley, Staffordshire, "English Country Inns" series. This one is George & Dragon. The white thingy has a sunflower design on it - turn it upside down and it's a candle holder! I already had one, and now a matching pair.
A few linens . . . I was so happy to find the purple dresser scarf, because I have a cabinet in the purple bathroom that it will fit nicely on. A pink & pink doily and dainty blue handkerchief.
I got this for Teen - it's a Japanese calendar print bandana-type cotton. Cute graphics around it.
Lastly, a pretty brooch with a rose on it; a little wooden sled guy wearing purple (for the purple bath); a celluloid (maybe) angel holding a banner that says "Gloria in Excelsis Deo"; and an interesting brass ornament that's 3-sided, and represents The Nutcracker - one side has the nutcracker soldier, one has the mouse king, and the last has Clara and her brother peeking out from behind curtains.
I also got a few platters, a gravy boat and two gravy saucers, a big old mixing bowl - these are for Vintage Thingies Thursdays, and a few red items (for Rednesday). I think this was the best thrift store day I've ever had!
