Thrifty Thursday

Last week stunk at the Goodwills… there was nothing… but this week I made out! Lets have a look see.

Big ol’ Crock lid! YES!




aka. Lazy Susan.



Found a small crockpot for $3.99 to melt wax in. I’m going to try making some wax ornies.



A nice Pitcher.








2 yummy votives and 2 ugly candles for wax melting.



A pewter goblet (YES!) and a small Williamsburg pottery pitcher.



2 magic Hallmark ornaments.



2 candle sticks and a cute little pumpkin.



A yummy votive warmer.



A Christmas ornament.



A tiny old medicine bottle.



And the find of the week… 4 Pfaltzgraff Folk Art Wine glasses for $2.00 and…



and all these matching drink glasses for $1.75!

SCORE! So thrilled about this find.



Until next time…

Anyway...as I said....
As Lawrence Welk used to say...Wonerfl, Wonerfl, Wonerfl....
You really have an eye for the good stuff. Great pickn's.

NOW IF THIS IS A REPEAT...GET RID OF ONE OF THE POSTS...lol

Great finds. The Goodwills near me rarely have any good prim stuff. When they do, they want an arm and a leg(a your right kidney)for it.

Love your home, it looks so cozy and inviting.

Awesome finds Carmen! Love the idea of a thrift crockpot for melting wax. I've been wanting to try doing some ornies but didn't want to use my good pot or gunk up a sauce pan. Never thought of getting a used one ~ DUH!

Wow...someone hit the jackpot! Good job on the finds!
