SOME THRIFTY FINDS

In between Grandbaby duties I've found a few thrifty items to share

These stripped glasses look old and at .75 each I couldn't leave them
the plates are a pattern I already have a few pieces of & were .39 each

I love the blue of these Laura Ashley luncheon plates .69 each

This glass dish was a sweet find for .65

A new piece of Milk Glass for my collection
It's a candle holder
Beautiful lines for $1.49

I'm joining Linda at Coastal Charm for

Hugs,
Linda

Such great finds again Linda. Don't you love it when you find plates that match others in your collection?? I remember those stripped glasses from back in the day! Give your little grandbaby a smooch from this Grammie! :)

Linda, Congratulations! I've been so out of the loop lately, but I just scrolled down and met that new handsome little man in your life. I know you are loving this new phase of your life. In the middle of all of this excitement, you've been able to find some great deals! You amaze me. Those glasses are so cool, and I love those blue L.A. plates! What a great milk glass candle holder. Again, I'm so glad your grandbaby and your daughter are doing so well. (Isn't the smell of a newborn just the sweetest?) laurie

No wonder you are tired my friend - you are burning the candle at both ends - babies and thrifting. You did get some great finds - the dishes and cups in the first picture - I remember!

Hi there! Those glasses look so familiar. Someone had them in my family. I'm giving away a cute rooster apron this week made from vintage linens...come by if you get a second to enter!

Ann@A Sentimental Life said...

I can not believe you find things that cheap. Love the glasses and the glass dish is just like one my Grandmother had...and yes I have it now!

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Don't know how you find time to help take care of a new grandson and thrift also. :-D Looks like you found some nice finds. Hope you are enjoying your week.

Looks like some wonderful finds. Enjoy that grandbaby as much as you can.

Sherry@Back2Vintage said...

I wish I could find several of those little ruffled dishes. They sell as soon as I put them in the booth!!! Great finds, Grandma!!!

Susan said...

Linda, I love the blue plates!! I have that same sweet little cut glass dish! Also who could not use another piece of Milk glass! I can never resist buying it when I see them. I have a huge collection!!

Sandy aka Doris the Great said...

Great thrifty finds. I especially love the milkglass candle holder.

Marigene said...

Great finds, Linda! The LA plates are just begging to be in a tablescape...such a pretty shade.

Shellbelle said...

Love all your thrifty finds, but the milk glass reminds me of my mom. She collected it all while I was growing up. Unfortunately, most of it disappeared over the years and I only have a few pieces. I think she got bored with the white when she moved to Florida and probably sold it cheap at a garage sale.

AshTreeCottage said...

Love those pale blue plates!

Love,
Susan and Bentley

dogsmom said...

More wonderful finds and great prices!
I am anxious for garage sale season to get here so I can do some haggling. The thrift stores have raised prices again.

Vintage Christine said...

Hey Granny! I haven't been over her to congratulate you on the newest family member, so CONGRATS!! As for your thrifty finds, I find myself loving those Laura Ashley plates a great deal, and of course your sweet little candleholder. I've got a ton of milk glass down at the antique mall and NO ONE wants it! Fenton and Westmoreland, too. Are we the only people in the world who still love it?????

Julie Harward said...

Some cute things here Linda...but none of it even begins to compare with that new grandson you have! I went in search and found the most handsome little guy..wow! Congratulations grandma, he's a keeper for sure! ;D

lvroftiques said...

Linda you always score some great stuff! I'm forever trying to find the deals like you do. I think I live in the wrong part of the country for them *sighs* Vanna

Shelia said...

Hi Linda! Oh, what great finds and better prices. I can't even get prices like that at a garage sale around here.
Have a blessed Easter,
Shelia ;)
