On a recent trip to the TREE, The Tablescaper and I were engrossed in scoping out the goodies. Just like the old blue light specials at KMart, an announcement was made about a cart of amazing bargains up front.
The older of the 2, hustled from all the way in the back of the store to the shoving and pushing crowd in the front.
What? Seven stinkin' cents? I think a stick of gum costs more now.
I wriggled my not so svelte self into the mayhem and grabbed away.
Reminded me of those big sales of wedding dresses at Filene's .
You can't be too polite, and you have to be willing to get a little bruised!
Nah, it wasn't that bad! So enough blah, blah, what did I get?
They were a little bruised themselves, but with an emory board and some red enamel...
they were patched up! (The reversible placement beneath them was .84 from an trip last year.)
And won't they look pretty with these from the Tree?
The plates were $1.99 each. They remind me of my friend Susan at Savoring Time in the Kitchen. She loves red!Susan is a wonderful photographer.
The Tablescaper declined, but I am sorry I didn't take the blue roses too!
Moving on, another basket of 7 stinkin' cents stuff held Waverly beaded napkin rings.
Gawgeous, as we say in NY!
TT says Fall, and yes, they could be. But I bought them to use with my Lenox Eternal Christmas.
And I think it will work. Anyway, most of my friends eyes are old, and they won't notice. :)
I took A LOT of them, and so did TT, ( I babysat her cart in the back while she made her way to the front, I was applying ice to my bruises. :) ) so come Fall we will be doing some give aways with them.
A few more bargains...
I know you gals do great at Thrift Shops, but we don't have that many out here, and their prices are way too high. Even at Savers, almost an hour from me, they had those plastic chargers you can buy new cheaper than what they had them priced.
But for 12.00 at SAVERS I got a whole basket of new SPODE mugs and plates, 10 of each, plus the basket. :)
Then I bought 6 dinner plates that matched. All by Spode. I figured I could mix solid black in with the dotted ones.I just looked them up, and they want 38 dollars for 4!!!
I thought of our friend BJ at Sweet Nothings when I saw them! She loves her dots!
I also got these for .99 at SAVERS ...Johnson Bros. They look new.
I don't want to bore you, so that's all I'll show for now. Stay tuned for the next chapter!
If all this bargain browsing has made you hungry, I made some chili. Dig in!
I am joining Diann at for Thrifty Friday, Laurie at Bargain Hunting with Laurie for Favorite Things, and The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays. Kim at Savy Southern Style for Wow Us Wednesday . Have a great weekend!
Thanks for stopping by!
