Thriftin’ Time Tuesday

Last Saturday, I got to go thriftin’ with my friend, Sharon and ‘our’ daughters.  Today I thought I would share some of my finds from our local thrift stores, here in Spokane, WA.  I have renamed my Smart Tips Tuesday segment…..hope you like the change…it’s an experiment.  Please let me know your thoughts on that. ttt 002 Yes, she is a real mess, Chase and Sandborn Coffee , wait a minute…..it says Steelcut…I thought that was for oatmeal.  Hummm.  ttt 003

 ttt 004Oh, I forgot….$1!

v 015 (1024x843) Isn’t this a real beauty, it’s heavy ceramic.  $2v 037 (616x800) And this little oddities from 1911….another $1.v 042 Ok, I had to cough it up for this frame…$4.  It’s a very old 8 by 10 and I am already working on a project with it.  Stay tuned!  There are a few more small pieces but I will save them for later….check back soon!ttt 005

ttt 006 And the very best for last…a two for one….no, not the price…one knob is gold and one is silver!  And yes, it was a little more than the other items but my daughter and I are spliting the price so that makes it a real good deal!  Stay tuned for the door knob projects, coming when the temps hit in the 50’s!
