THRIFTY TUESDAY FINDS!

It looks like things might be starting to pick up at the thrifts!  I saw some fun things yesterday at the 1/2 price sale at my local thrift store. 

Apple S&P ~ not old but very cute
80 cents for the pair ~ not bad

I love egg cups and have so many Easter one's but these were only 
50 cents so I had to pick them up

These two burlap plastic bowls were only 25 cents each
I love these~they are so vintage

I think this was one of my best finds
four salad plates with a different herb on each one
William-Sonoma and only 35 cents each!
Whoo Hoo!  

I'm joining the wonderful Linda at

Always,
Linda

Oooh, love your goodies Linda especially those plates. We've had so much rain and I haven't been out junkin' for 2 weeks. I'm getting the shakes!

Good afternoon, Linda. You know those burlap bowls remind me of the kits my sister and I had when we were really young. They were plastic bowls and plastic mugs and you fit burlap or material between each plastic layer and then topped it tightly with the rim, basically designing your own plates and mugs. It was fun for two little girls.

I too really like the herb plates, and the S&P apple shakers, well, I think they're really cute. I've not been out junkin' in so long. I'm really looking forward to getting back into it this coming summer.

Hope all is well with you and yours.

Hugs,
Susan

Love your thrifty finds! I can't pass up an adorable egg cup, either. Snuggle Bunny loves eating eggs from them. The salt & pepper shakers are adorable, and those WS herb plates were an absolute steal. Thanks for sharing.

Linda,
Now these egg cups are soooo darn cute and I'm still kicking myself for not keeping my MIL's burlap glasses back in 1986 when we cleaned out my in-law's house. Thanks so much for coming to my party and for telling all your friends about my giveaway...you are a wonderful friend:)

Blessings,
Linda

I love your finds, especially the plates. They'd be good for St Patty's Day too, don't you think?

Gina said...

The plates were an absolute steal...lucky you!
Love the egg cups too.

Susan said...

Linda , you found some wonderful things!! I love the little egg cups! I remember those burlap bowls when I was a kid. If my memory serves me, they use to put them in oats or detergent or something as a promotion.

Fab finds and such bargains too. I haven't got a favourite, I love them all!

Vintage Christine said...

I have a whole box full of those vintage burlap things--tall glasses, short glasses and ice cream bowls. All colors--I love 'em! You would've had a ball at my flea market space this weekend--I was selling stuff CHEAPER than the thrift stores (and my stuff was better, too).

Love what you found and I think that you really like what you ended up bying! That's the main thing. Have a nice day!

~~Carol~~ said...

Great finds Linda! I grew up with the burlap bowls and cups, so I really like those bowls, and those plates are so perfect for Spring. I hope you're right, and the thrifting is starting to be good again, because it's been bad for so long!

Nice finds, Linda. I always look for egg cups and have never found a one! I remember those burlap bowls...we used to eat our ice cream in them, many years ago. My favorite of your finds are the herb salad plates...they will make for a nice tablescape!

What wondeful finds ~ I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE thrifting. Love the burlap bowls ~ I remember eating out of those ;-) (guess I really am vintage)

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Nice finds, but have to admit the plates would be my favorite. You got a great deal on them. Out shopping with daughter and grands this afternoon, but nothing in the category of thrifty.

Linda said...

Love your finds, Linda! My favorites are the salt and pepper shakers...

lvroftiques said...

All great finds Linda as always! 80 cents for those S&P's is an AMAZING price in my neighborhood! And I agree those plates are my favorites too. Vanna
