The thrift stores yielded only a few good items over the past couple of months, but they are treasures! I need more tops to wear with jeans and shorts, as most of my wardrobe is still work wear and a bit too much for casual days. This French inspired top was cute and fit nicely. It does have a bit of bling, which suits my sparkly side. I got it the same day as the shoes.
I almost never find shoes at the thrift store as I have a little foot, size 5-1/2. When I spotted these beauties – never worn!! – I had to try them on. The soles still had the unscuffed sticker on them from the original store, which is how I know they’ve not been worn. I sprayed the insides with Lysol anyway just for my peace of mind. They are just so cute, and have low heels about 2 inches. They will be great for holiday wear, and they fit! This day all shoes were 50% off, so I brought them home for just $3.
Just last week, I picked up this French coffee press so I can make just one cup of decaf coffee for after dinner. I have wanted one for some time, and patience finally paid off. The little pots were just 25¢ and I have a crafting idea for them coming soon.
I ran across these at my favorite online thrift store also known as ebay. I couldn’t resist the rooster motif, and I did want some deep bowls for soup in winter and ice cream for summer. DH tried one for his cereal, but he prefers the everyday stoneware ones for his breakfast.
Then, I ran across these Japanese bowls that go with the red and black pieces I got last year. You’ll see these soon serving a new recipe that I’ve been working on.
Or should I say a new recipe I am obsessed with, LOL!! I’ve made it four times now, and will do it again soon. It will be added to the regular rotation as it is ridiculously easy and delicious, and goes from start to finish in about 15 minutes.
Have you found any good bargains lately?
