On a recent sunny winter’s day, I suddenly had the urge to visit my favorite “junk” store. I put on some old (yet presentable) clothes, grabbed a couple of 20’s, and headed out the door.
The day’s finds—$19 and some change:
I think these candlesticks need a makeover…at the very minimum, they need some new (CLEAN) felt!
I had almost made it out the door when I spotted the piece of slate. Of course, I had to bring it home too!Love me some tarnished silver-plate.Not sure what this is (part of an old lamp???) or what it wants to be, but it had to come home with me. Right now it is telling me it wants to be a miniature flag stand….might have to try that when Memorial Day and Independence Day come around.
The other $20? Well, Mickey D’s got most of it—a late lunch for moi and an afterschool snack for BoyWonder. I think I did MUCH better at the thrift store!
Until next time…..
