Thrifting lately...

A quick visit to the oppy recently did not disappoint. It's right near our school so if time permits, it's perfect for a quick browse. I'm a pretty ruthless thrifter these days. I know what I like and what I want so a quick browse through means I don't hoard too much stuff.

This pyrex bowl for use not display, though it looks happy on that shelf doesn't it?!
Great condition, great price. $4.00


Pretty doilies for bunting, clothing, pincushions. 50c a piece.


And  this lovely cloche-that makes three now and a bargain at just $1.00


How have you scored lately? Any luck at the oppy?
Linking in with lovely Max and crew.

I love those cloches, so versatile and pretty. and the colour of the pyrex is gorgeous. i am slowly warming up to pyrex, though we remain pyrex free we wont be for much longer if i see any in that shade!

Just after saying I wasn't buying any pyrex, I certainly wouldn't have left that one on the shelf. And I love the peacock doily....sweet!

I have become much more ruthless in my op-shopping too Lea - I got a tiny bit over-excited in the early days, falling in love with stuff on the shelves, and realising it was just a silly crush when I got it home...

Gosh, they know those cloches are 'in' round here! You should see the prices of them in our oppies! (so pricey, I'm yet to buy one!) x

I love all the same things as you Lea, can never go past turquoise pyrex and those doilies are beautiful- never ever find doilies like that near me. mel x

Your finds are lovely, Lea!! I especially love the beautiful cloche. Over here we use them to cover a cheeseboard, is that how you use them too? I try to be more selective with my thrifting too, I don't always succeed...

You have an eye for finding great things at thrift stores Lee. I also spied some of my crochet on your shelf! First time I've spied my work in someone else's home! Also love your efforts in weaving, I reckon I would like to sit around learn to weave from some experts of the craft. Looking forward to seeing what it evolves into.
