I haven't been to a thrift shop in a dog's age! Finally, I hit one yesterday before I went grocery shopping.

Any of you heard of the British author, Dick Francis? I've read a few of his books in some old Reader's Digest Condensed Books. They always have something to do with horse racing and they were very good stories. I found two hardbacks that I'm delighted with! Also, two strands of clear-ish beads.

In addition, I found a pretty Christmas plate made by Pickard China, U.S., a fun Christmas wind chimes that's double-sided and needs detangling, and two Ocean Water scented votives by Yankee Candle.

Also, a pretty Mason (England) Vista china tea cup, sans saucer. Three vintage hankies and a tablecloth (?) that's 24 inches square. I question it because it feels and looks like a men's handkerchief, but it's so large that it fits a small table. Who cares!

I haven't joined up with Rednesday in a while and this display is a perfect excuse to do so! Hi Melody!

Great finds! I haven't been thriftin' in forever. Need to go soon, but I have so much I need to photograph and list on etsy, I dare not go. I'm starting to get my blogging groove back so I hope to buzz by a lot this summer!

Lots of fun finds! I love Dick Frances and have read most of his books! Both of those are good. Love the hankies!

Sometimes a "thrift store visit" is better than any therapy or medicine! Like your treasures.
