Another juicy weekend at the thrift store! Seriously,I could never work at one of these places. Nothing would ever make it out onto the shelf. Hmmmm, maybe I'm onto something here. I'll just call myself a thriftstore and people will back up their truckloads of stuff at my place. Save me the bother of going out looking for it all :) Naw, the going shopping is what gets me out of the house. So this is this weeks haul...
To start things off I found this sweet corner shelf for 3 dollars.
And still continuing with the ceramic party-dishes-with-fruit-themes look, I found a few more serving platters
8 cute side plates
and this wonderful, huge,colourful bowl on a pedestal....
looking inside the bowl
Then there was this gorgeous treasure
It little out a little wine!
I actually got this one back in December but thought that,as long as I'm showing off the bucket , I would show you this piece as well.
It's funny, I have never noticed all these glass pedestals before until I started looking for them. They are everywhere. My question is, where are they all coming from? Is it normal to sell pedestals by themselves? Are these all from something that broke but left the pedestals intact? I'm not sure why they exist but I now have about a dozen of them. Go figure? This was the last one I found.It's the most intricate one yet. I think I'll be gluing it to the bottom of the nice glass platter I got last week and looking for a cake dome to complete it.
Remember my friend Shelly's collection of baking forms?
Another thing I can't seem to stop buying is candle holders. I love all the beadwork on this one. It cost me 99cents and must of taken hours of work to make.
