Joining in quickly for Leigh at Bloggeritaville. (Is that not one of the funniest blog names?) Anyway, I figured I had shown my stuff at Rhoda’s on Monday. Then I managed to get a little cash in my pocket this AM. Dropped #2 daughter off at summer school and made my way to the hospital thrift store. SURPRISE! Everything was 50% off today! I’m annoyed that tall woman grabbed the pretty black mirror that I was on the way back around the display to grab…it was so pretty and I am a total and complete idiot for not grabbing it as soon as I saw it…but I was hoping the dress would fit. Anyway, it was only $3.50! Well, here is what I DID snag for the grand total of $11 and some change.
The dark blue shorts have Elmo on the hem (missed that in the shot) and are for my great-niece. I gave her a Tickle Me Elmo at Christmas so I guess we have a theme. The tropical shorts were for Sunshine. $.50 for the two pair. The large tropical on the left side is a skirt for me. $1.50. The floral on the lower right are HUGE pillow shams. Not sure if I got them for the fabric or to actually use them as pillows. One of them might actually work for a cushion for the wicker chair I painted yesterday. I’ll show that when I decide on what to use for cushions for it. The blue and yellow is a rectangular table cloth that, again, might be used for fabric or as it on the patio table. Seven sterling silver spoons for $.60 each (not sure where the other one is). The white they are on is another rectangular tablecloth. Matches perfectly with a round one I have for those ‘decorator’ tables. Not shown is the wood wine box that I got. No idea what will happen to that, but for $.50? Why not?
Now surf over to Leigh’s and see what else is around! http://lbratina.blogspot.com/2009/06/consigning-interiors.html
