Thrift Store Finds

I love Sundays at my thrift store. Sundays mean that more items will be on sale than are generally on sale Mon-Sat. You can always tell what day of the week it is by the parking lot; it is so packed, people start making their own spaces.
Both my husband and I enjoy going, but he tends to be done looking after 10 minutes! So when we go together, like we did yesterday, I have to quickly dash to my favorite spots and try to pick some goodies. If I'm still looking when he's done, he'll offer to wait in the truck, but that kind of takes some of the fun of browsing away. Still and all, perhaps it's a good thing, too, as then I won't spend as much if I'm not in there longer.

Today I'm going to share what I found yesterday, and a few things I've found over the past two months, but haven't bothered to write about.

First, of course, is vintage and just plain old, modern sheets. This little stack will be going into the shop, where I'm always hopeful that it will be just what someone is looking for.

I also found some fabric yesterday. About 2 yards of this rainbow bright print by Timeless Treasures.

And, about 1/2 yard of this sweet floral print that has one of my favorite flowers, poppies!

And how about this pillowcase, that could give Michael Miller's Metro Living Circles a run for its money.

How about some dishware? I don't collect Pyrex, but I couldn't resist getting these little gems. They'll probably go into my shop someday, but for now, they're just hanging out on my shelves.

Lastly, these Mikasa Duplex plates featuring designs from Ben Seibel. I think his designs are so pretty. This print is Pink Ribbon. I was able to get 8 of little beauties. I believe they are cake plates, though I can't be sure of the terminology when it comes to dishes.

And that's all for today. Hopefully I'll have more to share next week.
