My First Time in a Thrift Store

7.01.2010

Yesterday was day two of car shopping and we finally decided on the Buick LaCrosse in Gold Mist not white. So we are driving home and the salesman calls us to say that Mr. Savvy left some more stuff in the car we traded. I thought he had gotten everything out, but, no he left some things in the back and in the little compartment in the dash. Anyway I said I would go back up and get the stuff he left in the car.

So I went back up there this morning and got the loot that was left in the car and then stopped at a thrift shop on the way back home that I had seen on the way up there the past couple of days. I walked in and right off the bat was a white covered vegetable dish.


I love the flower detail of this dish.




a crack has been glued on the handle




Here it is in it's new home




Price was $6.00. I think that was a good deal.

Linking my thrifty find to Debbiedoos for Garage Salen party.

Y'all come back now,

  33. Talk about fate! If Mr. Savvy hadn't left stuff in the car, you wouldn't have gone in that store. That vegetable dish was just waiting for you. Looks great in your china cabinet. Still loving you painted it green.
    Mine is too--it really highlights the dishes. Have a great 4th.

  38. Nice dish, but I was stopped in my tracks when I could see just a tiny bit of the china, stacked beside. That's my mother's china...which I have recently brought to my house. I don't remember if your blog is where I had seen it before or not. Pasedena by Haviland. I really like it more now than I did when I was growing up with it.

  47. I never find anything at our 2 thrift stores. I've talked to other bloggers. You either luck out and have a "good" thrift store. Or you have one that carries junk you truly do not want even if they gave it to you. I have lived in towns where I found good stuff however. Love this bowl. You lucked out! Congrats on the car.

  55. What a beautiful bowl! I love it! And being broken {and fixed} doesn't bother me when the piece is so striking...I think it gives it character. Don't you just love thrifting? It's a treasure hunt each and every time! Thanks for sharing!
