The challenge of thrifting includes weathering the “dry” spells. I feel like that is the case for the last several months but today’s adventure was much more satisfying. The picture above shows a beautiful white table topper with battenburg lace. These tablecloths are beautiful and show so well against a darker background. Today I’m sharing several tablecloths and toppers I found. The total price for five tablecloths and toppers was $8.50. I consider that a real bargain.
Here’s a look at the full topper. It is quite striking. I use this layered look for a slightly more formal table and it makes a great brunch or Afternoon Tea setting.
The next topper is also festooned (don’t you just love that word) with lace. The edging is beautiful and there is a nice center medallion. The soft yellow color is beautiful and so sunny.
I really liked this simple country tablecloth. It has an overall pattern of yellow flowers and this lovely border of vining flowers in yellow, blue and green. You can see how I used it here:
This next one is a round tablecloth with battenburg lace. It has large inserts of lace and also lace edging…quite lovely.
This last topper is quite striking with an embroidered center in white on white and a beautiful border of lavender bouquets around the edges. The colors are beautiful and the design perfect for Spring. You can see how I used it here: https://thriftingwonderland.com/2023/03/28/tea-and-the-garden/
This was the most expensive at $2.50. the others came to a total of $6.00. I was really thrilled to run across o many beautiful things. The lavender topper I found a few months ago but the others all on the same day.
The last items from this thrifting outing were three charming Spode Christmas ornaments showing a bear in a stocking, a kitty in a stocking, and a lone bear. The silver item is actually a wine strainer.
The wine strainer breaks down into two pieces so you can clean inside. You pour the wine into the cup of the strainer and allow the wine to drain into a wine carafe. The attached spout allows a nice stream of wine to enter the carafe also aerating the wine as it passes through the strainer.
A pretty good day for the Thrift Store. Hope you find lots of treasures on your next outing. Thanks so much for joining me today.
