I really didn’t mean to go, honestly. It was not in my plan…..but I just happened to be in the neighborhood…of a thrift store! So…..
This tray is huge…14” by 23”, silver plate (at least I think it is). I polished it with silver polish, just to test it and it cleaned up pretty nice but has some damage in tiny spots. I plan to use it in Karen’s Koop. Oh, forgot, it was $6.50.
These are what has me dancing in the Koop, under the chandelier!!! I originally was headed to HD for some corbels or architectural doodads for the Koop. (I will show you why later). I found several of these, at the thrift and all they need is some white paint! And a set was about $2.50, I got three sets of these large ones and three sets of smaller ones (1.75 a set with my senior discount…yea, for being over the hill!). I have more than I need for my little project but I will find other uses in the Koop!
Oh, btw, these are vintage mahogany shelf brackets….I didn’t even know that until I got them home.
And check out this vintage lampshade, less than $3. I keep my eye out for vintage Mexican stuff for my vintage 1969 Shasta trailer (Driving Ms. Daisy) , so I HAD to have this! Again not sure how I will use it but I will find some way!
I know that spoon thing is kinda’ weird but to me it looks Spanish, I think it hangs on a wall and in a larger version, might have been a fountain. So I will use it for the exterior Mexican theme at my trailer.
And I could not believe the feel of these sheets, 100% cotton, almost, if not brand new. Less than $6 for a full set.
I’ve had the birdcage for years, so I gave it new life….white paint. It will be in the Koop, too. And the enclosed glass frame with dried flowers just seemed to fit the picture. (It was less than a dollar.)
