Ah...the fun is in the hunt!

Went to "The Thrifty Quaker" today and found three nice items. One is a blue velvet dress that should fit one of my girls. The other is a silver plated chalice and the third is a small pewter candleholder. As I was going out the door of the shop, they were hauling in 3 grocery basket loads of donations. Well....another trip tomorrow or the next day!! Gotta see what came in. LOL

Here is a close up of the chalice and candle holder:

The chalice was $1.00 the candle holder was $1.00 and the dress was $1.50. The chalice was originally priced at $32.00. Cool Deal!!

Thanks for blogging with me tonight!

Hi Aunt George,
Can't amagine a life with no thrift stores, not garage sales, no blogs, and no Mary Jane girls. Hey, but we have them all!!! Looks like you had a good thrift store day. The material in the dress alone is worth buying, even if you had no one to wear it.
Are you going to make some more wool purses? The one you made came out sooooo nice.
So glad to have back with us.

Final thoughts...

Thank you for visiting today. Feel free to sit for a spell and wander through my archives of sewing projects, aprons, original poems and stories, musings and vintage treasures. I really love guests in my home....and if you wish, leave me a comment so I will know you were here! AG
