This week I ventured out twice during lunchtime at work to see what I could find at the corner thrift / antique shops. The first day was disappointing; this will happen now and again - days when NOTHING grabbed my attention and I returned to work empty-handed. Oh well, at least I got some fresh air and a bit of exercise.
Then yesterday the day was so glorious, I just had to get away from the computer screen and feel some sunshine on my face, so I wandered back outside. To my delight, I found the following for less than $5!
The teeny tiny cribbage board is too cute; it looks handmade and old.... I have never seen one so small! And at 49 cents, I just HAD to bring it home from Goodwill. Then I went to the antique shop, where they had a table sitting out on the sidewalk with a "FREE" sign on it! Low and behold, underneath the paperback books, was a heavy silver platter just waiting for me to rescue it!
Of course, I wouldn't feel right taking something for free without going inside and purchasing something. So I was pleased to find this old chippy green handled cheese slicer for a mere $2. Then I spotted a display of old tins - something I have never collected before, but thought would look really nice in my Studio. This one wasn't priced - they only wanted $2 for it too!
Yep, all four items for less than $5.
Fridays are good.
A beautiful, sunny Friday - even better.
A beautiful, sunny Friday with deals this great - the best!
Not A Laughing Matter At ALL, But...
