THRIFTY FINDS #2

Time to share a few of my thrifty finds from this week

I found this great bag/purse at the Thrift for $2
Vera Bradley and in like new condition!
Cute coffee mug for 50 cents!
Another egg cup for my collection 50 cents and this very cute tiny teapot for 75 cents

Now for my worst find....you know how sometimes you think something is a good deal and then it's really not
AT first glance, very cute especially if painted white
It's a little crooked...oh yeah while photographing I noticed it had been broken and poorly glued back together, it will still be cute when painted white but I paid a $1 for this!
oh well...
My best buy of the week made up for it!
This fabulous hand painted creamer
Be still my heart!  
While this is not "Blue Ridge Pottery" it is from The Cash Family Potteries made in Erwin, TN  and was the earlier business before being bought by Southern Potteries.
This shape was called a 'buttermilk pitcher'
And a much better buy for $1

I hope you will hop on over to Debbiedoos
for the weekly
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
Always,
Linda

Debbie said...

Linda you had a very successful thrifting week! I can't get over the Vera bag...at one time some paid a lot of money for that...it's so cute. Your Blue ridge pottery creamer is a real deal though...you will get so much use out of it. Thanks for linking up, it is so much fun for me to see all these finds...they all make me smile.

Olga said...

Awesome purse and the creamer is definitely a great find.

Great finds, Linda! I especially LOVE that Vera Bradley purse! That was my favorite pattern and I wore mine threadbare! You will really enjoy it! (Wish she would rotate some of her original patterns back again!)And that buttermilk pitcher is simply gorgeous! Happy week!...hugs...Debbie

YOU HAVE A GOOD ABILITY TO FIND ITEMS AT A INEXPENSIVE AMOUNT OF MONEY. ROSE

Mimi said...

Wow, you sure got a bargain on the Vera Bradley bag! I think her prints are gorgeous, plus I just throw mine in the washer when it needs it!
That pitcher is beautiful...I didn't know that shape was called a "buttermilk" pitcher...I love it when I learn something new from you!
Oh...we all end up with a worst find, sooner or later...

Chickens in the Basement said...

The hand painted creamer is beautiful! I'll be posting about the goodies you sent me for your birthday tomorrow! Woohoo! Thanks!

Kim said...

Hi Linda! I'm a little jealous here, okay, a lot jealous! I've been "in search of" a Vera Bradley bag just like that one to carry all of our families' bibles and such to church on Sunday mornings. It's the perfect size and I love Vera Bradley. Hoping to find one soon at a yard sale.
Your other finds were lovely too!
xoxo,
Kim

Charlotte said...

Great finds! There is nothing wrong with your 'worst' deal of the day. You loved it when you bought it and you will love it after it has been painted. Some of my favorite things have been broken or chipped. Love everything else also!

BECKY said...

Oh my gosh! What a fabulous thrift store! I've never found items at prices that low! It's always fun, though, to find those special things, at prices less than retail!

Dragonfly Treasure said...

You scored!! Love the buttermilk pitcher. Once painted white your worst find will be well worth more than a dollar. Is it a bell?
*hugs*deb

Mom Walds Place said...

Wellll, you should feel better now, look at all of this thrifting love!

Hey, you win some and you lose some. The good news with thrifting is that you ususally win, and when you do lose, you don't lose a lot.

Thanks for sharing!

Oh Linda Sweetie...
Good Morning and thanks for taking me along on the shopping experience today. I adore the Vera Bradley bag, what an awesome purchase and that little buttermilk creamer, oh how sweet it is. Now I love the bell, even if it had been broken and glued back, it still is so sweet.

Your teapot is so cute, and the nice thing about those little ones, they will fit in so many little spaces that need just that little bit of punch. So cute sweetie. I loved it.

I will try to pop over and check out a few of the other sale purchases. Thank you again for sharing with me today. I will be back soon.

Hope you have a beautiful Sunday sweetie. Many hugs and much love...Sherry

Oh, I so love that pitcher, too. I want that purse. It's so cute! You find the best stuff, girlfriend. Hey, I love your idea of painting a side table with my extra green paint. I have one not in the picture and I'm going to paint it this week. Thanks for the great idea!!!

WOW! I just ADORE the coffee cup--I have a zillion, but if I find one that's just too cute to pass up, I can't resist it!
Love the pitcher too--adorable! Have a great week!

Queenie said...

Great finds girlfriend! That little pitcher is the cutest thing...precious! Love that Vera Bradley Bag too...I have found at least 5 or 6 in my years of treasure hunting and have never paid much for them...I love those bags. They are so light weight. As a matter of fact, I am carrying a turquoise paisley one right now.... that I only paid a dollar for. Gotta love that right?!

About your bell find, I've picked up a many of things, that I wished I had let be.. we all have those "what were we thinking" moments from time to time. Lol! I know I do...I think your bell is pretty though and it will even be prettier painted white. :) Hey, you can always sell it at your own yard sale if you don't like it. Be sure to show us the before an after on it Okay!?

Have a great week friend!
Big Hugs,
Queenie

Jenny said...

Hi there, thanks for the visit...Love your finds, I would have picked them too..very nice! :D

~~Carol~~ said...

Love that Vera Bradley purse, and that sweet little pitcher too! And I'm glad I'm not the only one who comes home with things that they didn't realized were broken! But I bet that bell will look great painted white!
