Note: To keep myself sane, and to make sure I keep you, dear reader(s), entertained, I’m trying this little schedule thing out. A few days a week, I’ll always post on a specific topic. Like a weekly. A weekly feature. I’m still charting my path through this world of blogging and I figured giving myself a bit of structure would do me some good. Let’s see how it goes.
Welcome to the first “Thrifted.” I thrift. A lot. So much that my friends seem to think I can’t spend money on anything that’s not thrifted. (They are partially right. I have a weakness for IKEA and Target but don’t we all?) About 75% of the items in my house are from thrift stores or craigslist and it’s time I start posting my weekend finds and telling you where you can find them, too. The places I link to will probably hit your wallet a bit harder but if you’re not out there in the trenches sifting through aisle after aisle of crap to get to the good stuff, you miss out.
This weekend I found an entire set of Sheffield Golden Meadows dishware from the 1970s at my favorite Salvation Army. Eight pieces of each dish. Three different sized plates, two different sized bowls and a few serving platters. The damage? $35.
Aren’t they gorgeous? No chips, no damage, a little bit of fading.
Did any of you folks find something special at the thrift store this weekend?
