I’m a frugal girl. I’m not ashamed to admit it. I absolutely love shopping at estate sales and thrift stores.
We use cloth napkins around here, and I adore silver… so these gorgeous napkin rings made it home with me from the last estate sale I visited.
Also purchased was a vintage silver and glass coaster (in which my glass of water is now resting!) and beautiful handmade doily.
It really breaks my heart to see once treasured items going so cheaply. Really. Someone spent countless hours crocheting that intricate doily which I purchased for $1.00. So sad to me. But, I will treasure it.
I also picked up a cute little picnic basket that someone lovingly lined with fabric. We’ve already used it once for it’s intended purpose, and I’m sure we’ll use it many more times to come.
Have I told you how much I love vintage sheets? I like to sew Sara Lynn and I pajamas out of them. Recently, Daniel even requested his own pajama pants made from a sheet he picked out of my stash. I can’t imagine anything more soft and cozy to sleep in. Not to mention, you can get amazing yardage for very little money with sheets.
My heart leapt with joy when I saw this piece! I can hardly wait to make pancake balls.
Last, but not least, are these fabulous soup bowls and saucers. I love the poppies! And the two little handles. I can imagine soup (of course), oatmeal, or even grits (I’m thinking of you, Maura!) served up in these.
For under $25, I’m feeling really good about my treasures.
I wonder, do you enjoy thrifting or purchase items secondhand?
