Nice Finds In Silicon Valley


I found some wonderful things while on a day trip a little south. My friend Nancy who I've known since High School went with me to the Thrift Shops around San Jose, and Campbell CA.

Thank god for the navigation system in my SUV otherwise we may have ended up in who knows where. We started out in Fremont, CA and worked our way down.  It's fun to go other places to see what there is. 

These are some of the finds. This cream colored vase, hand painted plate, the crystal candy holder for my lemon drops, the hand painted creamer, and the little green etched glass votive, and last but not least the silver jewelry box. I also found a blue and white toile valance for my kitchen window, but it's in the wash. 

All in all, it was a productive day. I just love day trips to other places. I hope to go again soon. 
Nancy found some nice finds as well.

Wow - you found of pretty things. I bet your toile valance is pretty also - I really like toile. Wish we had some better thrift shops around here. I don't know if I just go at the wrong time or what.

Great finds! I just love driving around and finding estate sales. We moved from the Bay Area and miss the weather!

Have a great weekend!

Fun day for you! I am glad you didn't get lost along the way. If you did, you got lost in nice places. :-)
