I have been a regular Ms. Thrift-A-Ton lately.
Like gathering nuts for winter, I have been gathering materials for projects designed to use up the materials found in Horror Monster, my beloved craft stash.
He is on a strict diet.
This stack of divided crates I bought at Riverfront Antique Mall. One of the dealers tries to keep a number in stock. They are new, but cheap, and fly right out of the store.
Great for booth displays.
When I bought my little trunk HERE, I left behind this one.
And immediately regretted it.
It wore a blue tag so I decided to wait for half-price blue week, and I would buy it.
Well, I skipped going that week.
BUT it still sat there because the price was too high.
I tried to talk the manager into reducing it.
Finally, blue week came around again.
I snatched it right up.
Well, that's a lie.
It is rather heavy and they made me pick it up in the back.
It looks sad here, but I polished it and took it over to hold various items in the booth.
And the price is better than it was at the thrift store!
I love how the top lifts.
This was on the cart to the dumpster so I had to rescue it.
Yes, you still have to pay full price!
I bought these two metal tiles to paint, but when I looked closer, I realized someone quite talented had painted them.
Now do I paint right over them?
Or preserve someone's artwork?
I'll get back to you when I decide.
I never pass up vintage small frames.
Two dinner plates and two salads.
Blue Ridge in a pattern I have not seen.
One pink, the others white.
Swirly black design.
I am thinking fifties?
Taped to the Blue Ridge plates was this loner.
Pretty enough to hold a potted plant.
Chucks can vouch that I often can be seen running around the house swearing at the top of my lungs about missing scissors.
We own around thirty pairs.
I lose them constantly.
I may frame these so I can get to them.
But I will probably lose them too.
Pink shelf paper with cherubs. Yum!
Who could resist a pink fifties lamp with a gold deer?
And it has a pull chain.
And the two juice glasses?
Handpainted souvenir glasses from Hollywood, Florida.
More glass top Atlas jars for my lace and Frozen Charlottes.
Another old brush.
I seem to be finding a number of these and some customer buys every one of them.
There must be an avid brush collector out there.
Some are already at Riverfront Antique Mall in North Augusta, others are headed that way, and some will be showing up on Etsy.
