It's been a while since I've had something to show for Thrift Thursday. I don't go thrifting much during the winter and the local shops don't have high turnover so it's best to not go too often. Saturday was cool and not a good day for working in the garden so we hit the road and visited some of the old favorites. I think I did pretty well.

My husband spotted a tray of silver (Wm Rogers silver plate) and I liked the iced tea spoons and serving pieces but wasn't sure I wanted all of it. But, at $8 for the whole thing, how could I resist?


These are fun—chicken hotpads with red fabric combs and button eyes! Not completely sure they're vintage but the fabric looks like it could be feedsack cotton. Just $2.75 each.


Two striped linen towels made in Poland and with their labels and store tags (Gee Bee, a department store that started as a one-room shop in 1906 in Johnstown, PA) still attached—sold originally for 22 cents! They cost me $3 each.

And an original signed print of a Parisian street scene in a white painted frame. Written in pencil across the bottom 35 Paris - Eglise St. Pierre de Montmartre. $5

I just found your site and really have enjoyed going through your entries. The Stitch School is fabulous and the pillows are something else! Thanks.

You definitely had a lucky thrifty day there! I also love ice tea spoons, they seem like a rare thing these days.
