A bit of thrifting treasures....

Nice Fall day here in the Northwest, wasn't raining, so I had a chance to
run some errands and while doing so, go thrifting as well.
I set myself a limit per store, $20 each and I only went to 2 and came home with some fun things.
This pretty metal fleur de lis Christmas tree thing ( going to paint it), a nice set of candlesticks,
a great wire urn, a little Early American Pressed Glass cordial glass, a great blue and white transfer ware platter, a fleur de lis plate ( matches some I already have), a great old religious box ( the metal on this is tarnished but it is silver), some new fleece gloves for me ( I like them in my pockets for when I need but if I loose them no biggy, they were only $1.30 each and I also found another great find ( not shown) an EAPG bread plate or commemorative plate from the 1800's worth about $85.00 that I got for $3.00.
So all those goodies for just under $40, I think I did well.
Some for me and some for resale , not a bad day!

You did get some great deals. I have not been to a thrift store or estate sale in a while now - trying to finish up some projects already in the works.
Thanks for visiting.
