  1. Wow Linda. You found some beautiful pieces for really cheap!! I haven't found anything here lately. VV has more junk and the good stuff is always gone or too expensive now. The Cornflower candle holder was a steal of a deal! That pattern is quite collectible now. I have several pieces and lots of glassware in it. I love the orange flowered creamer. Cute!

  2. You go to some great stores to find bargains. We don't seem to have many around here. I've been collecting glass pieces to make a glass totem for a friend's birthday. Haven't been out to look lately, been too busy at home. Got the books all shelved, now going through some boxes from the china cupboards ... some stuff isn't making it back. A big donation box has been started. Hm-m-m maybe I should start my own thrift store :)

We have very similar tastes..I would have picked up most of those things for myself if I were there! baskets..jars...bowls...you just can't have too many! hahaha.

  6. I love the canning jars! I look for those too. They make great sugar bowls. And you already know I have a thing for creamers.

    I think it's almost time for me to find some thrifty deals. Maybe I'll start perusing garage and yard sales again.

  7. Great finds! I haven't bought anything vintage lately. It's hard to find anything like that around here. I want to try a new vintage shop I've never been to though; I just need to find some time during their short hours of being open!

  8. Good shopper! I share your passions for baskets, and creamers, and dishes in general. Also for antique jars with wire closures. I would have been arm wrestling you for a couple of those pieces. Love the table too. I have a darling half table on my front porch. Love it!

  9. I wish I could find deals like that! That vintage table would for around $55.00 here. The glassware would go for no less than $8.00 to $15.00.
