I was all set to write a pathetic post about the lack of finds at garage sales and thrifts stores around here lately. I hit about 10 garage sales in the last two weeks, and this was my only purchase (with the exception of my daughter's must haves). A nifty old carpet beater.
A down-right steal at 50 cents. Wow.
It's already hanging above my basement stairwell.
Then yesterday, a visit to my local thrift store netted some good finds at good prices too. Some old games:
1970s looking s & p shakers. Marked "Japan" on the bottom.
And a large (4 qt) Pyrex bowl. It may shock a lot of bloggers to know that I have very little Pyrex. Two small, red refrigerator dishes that belonged to my grandmother-in-law and a square, clear (well, once clear) baking dish that was my grandmother's is the extent of my Pyrex. I'm not sure if I'll keep this bowl or not. It is really cool, but I have very little kitchen storage space. We'll see.
So a planned whining post turned out better than expected. Linking to The Thrifty Groove with some welcome thrifts!
Have a good one out there!
