Thrift Shop Finds


I went to Thrift town yesterday just to see if they had anything. The first thing I saw was the plate. It's from Germany and the gold it 22K. Then I went a little further and saw the cup and saucer. The handle on the cup has been repaired, but it's still nice. I went to look at picture frames and saw this mirror, with white roses. It's craved from wood and it's really heavy. I started to leave to pay and came upon this bird feeder. I brought them all home and cleaned them up. You just never know what you'll find. The lamp needs repair. A new cord and plug. But my father taught me how to repair lamps and I can get old looking wiring on the internet. It's a pretty blue with gold accents and pretty roses.  The silver thing I'll shine up and use as a candy dish.

Hi Glenda! I love your thrift store finds, you're a girl after my own heart! Can you share where you find lamp cording that looks older? I'm not happy with the newer looking cording on old lamps. I am a brand new blogger and am loving it!! Please come visit me when you have time! Sherry

Wow Glenda! You got some wonderful buys at the thrift! I love the lamp. I buy old lamps all of the time and refurbish them!
