when you live down the street from a thrift store and a flea market...


it can be very dangerous.


some new old treasures (which i will be keeping)

:: old silver monogrammed pitcher, $2, thrift store
:: pretty cream colored china bowl, 69 cents, thrift store
:: slate blue Westinghouse Fan, $5, flea market
:: pair of 1930's silhouettes, $20, flea market

i actually saw the flea market for the first time on the way to the thrift store this afternoon. apparently it has been there for 2 years, and i have driven by it thousands of times and never noticed it. how sad.

see the dust on those silhouettes? yep, they've been waiting for me!

Oh come on, that's just NOT FAIR!!! ;-) I found a couple of silver plated trophy style urn thingies at the weekend for $5 each but that pitcher for $2??? I'm green with envy over the fan too!

Silhouettes are so popular right now - great find! I can't believe the cream bowl was only $.69, that's awesome! Guess you'll be going back to that flea :)

You lucky duck! I always feel like I need to hurry up and pay, before the cashier realizes that I'm walking away with a steal of a deal! (Then again - beauty is in the eye of the beholder, right?!)
