Thrift Store Treasures

So my walking numbers are way down this week after my high stepping totals last week. I’ve been sidetracked this week. I decided to clean out my kitchen cupboards and reorganize them so it’s easier to work. I had 3 bags of stuff to donate to the local thrift store. Things that just aren’t working in the condo. I have another box full of stuff to take back to the Mother ship in Seattle. Just when I was ahead I had a great shopping day at none other than Goodwill.


6 Water Goblets with roses etched on them (all 6 for 2.99), Tea Pot and two tea cups $2.99, A three piece cream and gold tea place setting for $1.99 (Kahla, East Germany), A Tiffany and Co. Ice bucket for 1.99.

A Limoges little basket dish for $1.99


There were 11 of these little vases that are designed to be place card holders. I got the set of 11 for $4.99.

Now the big decision on what to leave here and what to send to the Mother Ship…

I’m headed to Orange County today to meet some of my family at a Persian Restaurant to celebrate my father’s 85th birthday. I’ll try to catch up with y’all tomorrow. Have a wonderful day.

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007-2015 hostage and they have blacked them all out. I’m slowly working at restoring my posts without their help. Such a tiresome bother!

  1. Good morning Ellen… I have to leave in a few minutes, but I had to mosey on over to visit you first before I leave! 🙂

    WHAT TREASURES you found. How come I hardly ever find treasures like the ones you found at my local thrift stores…?! I love the goblets and the basket – I think they are my favorites!

    Good call snatching up those treasures.

    Have a blessed time with your family. Please tell your Dad I say Happy Birthday!

    (wordpress) and I run into someone that does treasure hunting @ Goodwill like I used to do! I thought of taking pictures of some of my finds and posting them just for something to do on here(and to use my new cheap digital camera)
