Treasures from thrift store and swapmeet

azcactusflowerJanuary 23, 2011

Went treasure hunting yesterday and it was a lucky day. Found all these treasures waiting just for me!!! All I paid was $12, for everything, I was extremely happy about that.

I have added these to my stash for totems and adorning birdhouses. Such fun!

Great ceramics & my favorite are the plates with blue & pitcher/vase! Lot of treasures for $12. 2 teapots would cost that here! Jan

GREAT haul!!!!! - I especially love the tea pots - I have some serious envy there - that last picture of goodies would have been worth the $12.00 .....

Someone must be getting rid of their teapot collection. I went last Sat. to the local thrift store and scored 2 more teapots. I love the design.
I also wanted to let those of you who have a Dollar Tree in your area know that they have these beautiful colored plates in the store, all for $1.00 each. They would be great to use in totems. I think the bright yellow matches the sun teapot perfectly.
