Even More Thrifty Finds

What came home with me this week from Goodwill and Value Village:

I grab bags of lace whenever I see them - this time, for only $3 I got meters and meters of wonderful border lace that will be great on greeting cards.

Those three ceramic owls aren't old, but I just couldn't leave them since they were cute and only 50 cents each!

I also spotted an old two-handled bowl; I have no idea what it was used for, perhaps a serving bowl, but now it "serves" as a holder for random ribbon bits:

And of course, I never can resist silver. Tarnished or newer; it usually finds its way into my cart. Those seven silver Christmas napkin rings were a mere $2 at Goodwill... still in their original packages! Seven is the perfect number for us; when we host a family dinner, that's the number around the table!

The grape-adorned silver plate was only $3 and the silver "scoopy-thing" was $10; my biggest purchase of the day at Value Village.

Do you know what it is? It's called a sugar scuttle! With matching scoop, these silver beauties have a gold anodized interior. Shaped after coal scuttles, they were used in Victorian times up until the mid-1900's. It is super-heavy too! I love it; and the small scoop fits perfectly in the back.

Yep, some wonderful finds this week for sure!

  1. Your two handled bowl looks like a soup tourine to me. Aren't you starting to run out of room to put your finds? that's what's brought my shopping to a complete halt: I've hit maximum density in the house.
