I found this small consignment shop today and scored this glass cloche with plate for a mere $2.00 – Yeah Me !

The above silver things I found at Goodwill – for $1 to $3 – the top plate with the ABC’s and 123’s is pewter or something really heavy. I loved the wire basket – it will go in my studio for this and that – I have it decorated a little on the shabby-victorian-country style….The large silver plate – not sure yet – I may turn it into a chalk board- or might keep as is for displays….

I went to the Habitat for Humanity thrift store..never had been before-they had loads of stuff and for cheap – I found all this Ironstone for $1 to $4 – the coffee pot…..isn’t that cool !

Here is my secret for this week….when going to thrift stores, Marshalls, Ross, etc…. go down the aisle once…walk around a bit to look at other stuff and then go back down a second and third time..sometimes there is so much stuff you may not see what you are looking for the first time ! I can’t tell you how many times I have done this and found something amazing !

Happy Shopping !

Hi Kammy! I finally found someone who is just like me and who understands. LOL! You will get along with me and my oldest sister. We both love to shop. I love everything you bought and you got such good deals. It's funny that you di dnot post everything just like me. Is buying too much embarrassing us? Hey! We are just contributing to the economy, right?...Christine

What great finds on your shopping trip. The white ironstone is absolutely beautiful. I have to check out our local Goodwill store. I see it's crowded in there all the time but I have yet to take the time to stop. I love your secret shopping secret; great idea. I never go back and recheck I scan with my eyes and move on. I'll have to stop and look better.
Thank you for showing us what was in your bag this week and your great shopping finds.

Hello Kammy! I am over from Susan at Between Naps . . . ! I saw your tablescape and the minute I read you had a view of the Rockies I was hooked. I DREAM of living in Colorado, or at the very least have cabin there. We'll see!
I love to thrift shop. A Habitat for Humanity thrift store? I've never heard of one! I'll have to look it up and see if there is one around dour area.
I've so enjoyed visiting your post. I'll be following along!
Have a wonderful day! Karen
