Checking out some thrift stores here in Texas I have found a few items I could not leave on the shelves!
This creamer is Fire King Peach Lusterware
It just 'glows' it is so pretty and a new addition to my 'creamer collection' and my first Lusterware
99 cents was the magic price for this pretty
I also found this really cute painted bucket
It has a hole drilled in the bottom, so it will be perfect for my Mums next fall and again
only 99 cents!
I am always looking to add items to my 'Texas collection' and I found these items in two different thrift shops. The shot glass was 29 cents and the mug was 99 cents. Both have the state flower, Blue Bonnets, on them.
I carried this little glass cat around the GW for awhile trying to decide if I would pay it's sticker price of $3.99...it isn't that much but more then I usually pay for my junque! However, I felt like this was Fenton. It isn't marked and has some flaws so maybe it was a 2nd. Anyway as you can see I got him and will be taking him home for the 'cat collection'
And finally...new shoes for Linda!
There is a Sketchers outlet near my Mom's and I decided to stop in. I loved the selection and since I only wear backless shoes and needed a new pair of sneakers with great support I had high hopes.
I found several pair that were contenders and reasonalbly prices at around $35....but me being, well ME, I of course went into the clearance section.
There they were...only $19.95 and with PINK trim! Yippee! I already love them!
(no compensation from Sketchers, just my opinion)
