Come Thrifting with Me #2

Hi Everyone!
It's Thrifting time again. Last weekend, I went to a place called Thrift Town in Dallas and came across some of the cutest finds. It wasn't much but I still consider it a good deal..
I purchased the lamp for $5.99. I already had a great shade for it at home.

This lamp that's almost identical to the one I purchased was $129.99. Another Score!!

I love this little cup soo much and it was only .50 cent.. I looked it up and it was online for $9 - $15, Score!!!

I'm for New Orleans, so every Fleur di lis I come in contact with I'm buying it.. $3.99

Elegant, blue and white rice bowl with translucent 'rice grain' pattern that is visible through the porcelain.

Each for $1, I looked these up and they were about $15 each.. Happy!!

Hi Everyone! I'm creating a new series for my blog called

Now every time I enter as thrift store or any store as a matter of fact, I look for blue and white pottery, pictures, furniture and other things.

Two weeks before last week, I found the cutest pot for $1.50 and a lovely Mid Century Melitta Coffee/Tea Server for $2.99. I knew it was worth something, so I looked it up and to my amazement it was being sold for almost $40. YES!!!

Last week, I road around trying to find a thrift store another thrift store but it was closed down, then something told to go to the TS you went to 2 weeks ago and found all of these things. I went crazy, buying every blue and white piece I could find. I had a smile from ear to ear. Soo Happy!!
