What I find at My Thrift Store!

I'm sitting at my computer downloading the pictures for this post and I look out the window and my neighbor is putting these curb side!
Free to me.
I was in my pj's, so I had to run get dressed before someone else stopped.
Don't ask how many chairs I have now. But I can seat everyone of you if you came over for a glass of wine.

This is Renninger's Extravaganza. I went on Sunday by myself. I was there for 3hours and only saw about 1/3 of the place. I did buy old wooden snowshoes, I have been looking for them for a while. Too big for me. And I never saw so much junk. Real junk.

Joan at Anything Goes Here ask what I have found at my Thrift Store.
I think she means you too. Anyway, I have the best Thrift. I almost always find good stuff. That's why I go everyday. Sometime I have a dry spell but that's ok. This is why I need to start up an Etsy shop. I just love the hunt.

There are only 3 but these the the sweetest cup and saucer of milk glass. In great condition.
No chips or cracks

A refrigerator jug.

The glass bowl was made in Italy.
I like the size and shape of the milk glass vase.

Someone spent alot of time doing this. Why would they stop and then put them in the thrift?

I got a few of these. I'm putting newspaper in this one the my fire pit.

I should make some pillows out of them.

These cute old hats are just so pretty.

Do you think I have enough scrabble letters? The light bulb is 200 watts. I'm afraid to put it in a lamp. But I love the look.

I'm really into old books. I like this color and that it says Our Home. I have it right by the front door.

I love this glass jar. I had vintage ornaments in it for Christmas.

Ok, that's about 1 weeks worth. They open at 9am and they are working hard putting good stuff out for me. So I need to go.
Have a good day to all.

It looks like you have great luck with finding interesting things. That light bulb is particularly interesting.

Those light bulbs are the hottest, sorry for the pun, things happening.
I love collections of small things too. I have mah jong tiles in old jars, small metal toy airplanes in bowls, stuff like that. Great pictures, Karen Sue!
