Thrifty Thursday

Here's a few of the goodies from last week's thrifting:


Cute Coke glasses -- juice-sized, for those who like to begin their day with toast and Coke. And four funky daisy mugs + sugar and creamer. These must be from the 70s? when gold and avocado were the 'in' colors. For some reason, I could not overlook their cheerfulness.

Here are my favorite finds of the day. Vintage fruit crate labels, all framed up. And at a fantastic price. (More colorful than shown here. Hard to capture.)



I heart 'Chickie'. That one may end up in my kitchen. But first I'm offering all three to Z, for his new apartment. He thinks he'll like 'Buckingham' but he might want all three -- certainly has more empty wall space than I do.

Oh, and see the vintage tablecloth above? It's next on the Flea Market Bag worktable, perhaps.

Thank you, Salvation Army!

Super great finds, I just posted a picture last week of a tablecloth almost exactly like that one! And I collect labels, my house is full of them. You go girl!

I like the chickie one too, but DH would probably like the BuckingHam, especially with the cowboy's Wolly chaps! Wish I could find treasures like that at our thrift stores!
