My heart went pitter patter for those red dishes, great sized mirror and those legs !

034  A set for 8 red dishes for $ 19.99 – I know a bit high  - but the 8 bowls are great as are the plates… I love the red !

037This mirror was $ 4.99 (love half price day) it measures 12” x 12” – it is heavy and wonderful. It will be so pertty with a new paint job..

008My heart went pitter patter when I saw these legs !  I almost missed it as I walked through the furniture area…it was hidden behind other items and had things up on the top….My first thought as I was uncovering this beauty was  - How in the world can I get it home ? I was driving our little Honda….Drats…  This table is as tall as a dining room table but, small in diameter. If I had a huge foyer (which I do not) it would look great in the middle.

009 Then, I noticed the whole top was loose ! This is some kind of portable table – Yeah me, it will fit in my car ! The price was $12.99 , because the top was in such terrible shape….The bottom is pure wood and I could marry it..(don’t tell the hubby, LOL) The top is wood – I think with some heavy varnish – I will see what I can save or at least make pretty. I have NO EARTHLY IDEA where it will go…as I am pretty much wall to wall furniture….I need, yes I need to be gifted a huge mansion…LOL !

013I spotted this cake plate for $ 4.99.

107 Kinda pretty…wasn’t sure if I liked it but, now it is wearing on me..

I went to 4 different thrift shop/discount stores yesterday and I found nothing, zero, nada.
I will just sit and sigh at all your goodies.

Karen said...

KAMMY!
START THE CAR!!!! RUN!!!!!
OH MY GOSH!
Girl - you pure and simple lucked out. The table is to die for, and I LOVE the cake plate!!!
If I came home with one more set of dishes, my husband would toss me out for sure, so those I would've had to pass up. But the rest - sigh.
What a great day! I'm curious as to where you are going to put that table . . . (hehehe)
Have a wonderful week! Karen

Love the table legs too. So glad that the top came off so you could get it in your car. It would have been a real shame to leave it behind for that great price! xo joan@anythinggoeshere

Kammy,
So good to hear from you, thanks for stopping by. I love all your finds. I am in love with that table and those red dishes. For the record I drive a small car, you would be suprised what you can get into one. DH calls mine "the little truck".

Found you from Rhoda's Thrifty Treasures. I love the table, it has great legs! I like having tall side tables next to the couch or even bedside. Not sure exactly how tall it is but it could work in lots of spots!

Hi Kammy... It's been a while since I've been by "your place" and I'm sorry about that!! I read through a few of your more recent posts and I have to say = I'm amazed at the fantastic things you find!! There was a chippy table you posted about earlier this week. It's FAB! And so is the little table with the great legs. I want to go shopping with you!

Thanks for dropping by DesignTies :-)

Love that table - what a bargain - I too would have taken it (and I am also wall to wall in furniture).

Each time you would show us a new picture I would decide that was my favorite, over and over as you showed us your finds. lol. You did great. I love the table, the dishes, the cake plate.... see what I mean. Thanks for visiting junkblossoms. I hope you'll visit again soon.

I love the cake stand. I collect cake stands, and that would look nice in my collection. Good find.

Kim @ Starshine Chic said...

The red dishes are fabulous!!! And I too love the legs on the table. You always find the best stuff.

Sherry said...

You can sure find bargains! I found a few bargains last weekend but not quite as fun to look at as your finds. Thanks for the nice comment you left me.

linda said...

Just stopping by and thought I'd leave a message, hope you don't mind.

You found some great treasures! I just discovered thrifting about a year ago and I can't believe what I've been missing out on all these years! I was a thrifting snob but not anymore! I love it!

I read that you live in Colorado. We're planning to move to CO this summer if all goes well. It just depends on the CA housing market.

Take care and have a wonderful week!
Linda

Hi Kammy...

My friend, it's been awhile since we've visited! How have you been? I see that you are still keeping busy thrifting! Hehe! Ohhh my...you found some really great items! I love that table..and you're absolutely right about those legs...gorgeous!!! I also think the white cake plate with all of the embossed pattern is sooo pretty...I love it! Now...that red set of dishes is the exact set that I have! In all of my tablescapes where I have used red...it is that set! They have proven to be very useful and versatile at my place! I know that you're going to get "miles" of use out of them...great find and great price, Darlin'!

Kammy, tomorrow is my Sunday Favorites meme's "one year" birthday celebration! I was going through my very first post and you participated! Sooo...I just had to come by and let you know. I am also having a "gift card giveaway" in honor of the big day! Hehe! Come and sign up, Sweetie! I'll have my post up later today!

I hope that my note finds you and your family well!!! Talk with you later, Darlin'!

Warmest wishes,
Chari @Happy To Design
