It was an eclectic day at the Thrift Stores picking up a bit of this and a bit of that. Now that Fall is definitely on the way I’ve been looking at Fall decorations and colors in linens to fill in some gaps. I was able to find a few things this week as well as a few unexpected items.
I’m starting with these very cute “Bears and Friends” figurines. I don’t collect these but the Thrift Store had received quite a few of them so I took a few minutes to look them over. I ended up getting several of them. I chose ones that were related to Christmas, July the 4th and Tea. They are very sweet and I hope to incorporate them in table settings and centerpieces. The price of each figurine was about $2.
Next was this lovely set of four dinner and four salad plates by Lenox. The pattern is entitled, “Heiress”. I love the asymmetrical placement of the pattern as well as the curving lines. Each piece is bordered in.a thin gold line. Really pretty and in pristine condition. These will be great for Spring and Summer settings.
This rustic pumpkin candle holder was really appealing and only cost $1.25. I’ll be able to use it throughout the Fall.
I found a neutral tablecloth and four bi-colored napkins. I have plans for the tablecloth and the napkins will be great for Fall table settings. I have soup bowls that match the colors. I was happy to run across both these items. Linens are always a bargain. The napkins were 40 cents each and the tablecloth $2.50. I can’t even buy the fabric for that amount of money.
Next are these three graduated candlesticks in a heavy, black metal. They are quite thin and elegant looking. I think they will work well in a number of settings.
The last items are a great table runner in a patchwork, red and white design by Country Living and a really nice metal basket in black. Baskets are always useful and I particularly liked the black metal. The runner is six feet long and has a nice country feel to the fabric. This will go really well with some Fall displays.
All-in-all a pretty good haul for not much money. I always love shopping days like this. Hope you find some great treasures this week.
