Thrifty Finds

I don’t remember if I mentioned that I found a place, by accident.  I thought it was the Goodwill and it turned out to be the local flea and antique mart.  I’ve been in there twice and twice I’ve found things to buy!  Here are my recent finds.

I was sad to see that my dome clock cloche did not make the move intact and I had to throw the glass portion away.   This one is a little bigger than the one I had and had cost $2.00 at a yard sale.  This one was $7.00, which wasn’t too bad considering the original price tag said $15.00.

Also found this little sugar and creamer set tucked away in another booth.  The sugar bowl has no lid, but I just love the design on this little set.  It was $2.50 for both pieces!  Love them and into my “whites” cabinet they go!

Great Finds at GREAT prices.... I am so sorry to hear your Glass Dome didn't make the move...Those things are so Extremely fragile and thin....We have one ourselves and I am not sure how I am going to pack that in our move...Most likely in a separate box of it's own... That I am sure will end up being Over stuffed...Which I have a tendency to do in the packing of my Fragile things... : ) Sounds like you found yourself a little Treasure Nook!!! Can't wait to see All the other Lovely things you will find....

Have a wonderful week...

Kathy, you picked up some cute things on your shopping trip. The clock looks very expensive. The creamer and sugar bowl are very pretty and will be useful even with a missing lid. You did good!----- Shannon
