Look What I Dragged Home Now

I have to admit that thrifting has been rather slow since Christmas.  I think the extreme cold and abundance of snow here in Northern Minnesota have cut down on donations and consignments.

Here are some recent purchases:

It's an old high chair. I think it's oak.  No tray.  $10.  I am thinking it will go outside this summer.





An embroidered runner for $3.

A gold metal, I think vintage, Mary figurine. $3.


A white pitcher, made in Japan.  $4.  I kind of think a white pitcher is a mandatory prop in blogland.


Then came the frames... I think this is a cute little picture but I bought this for the frame.  $4.


I also purchased this vintage print for the frame.  $3.  The wood frame is awesome.  I may paint this.


Another great vintage easel frame and a vintage postcard inside.  $10.


I picked up this wood easel for $3.  I think I may paint this too.

I am going out again shopping again in few minutes.  Wish me luck!

  1. I can't tell how big that chair is but the first tha ame to mind was that it was a shoe shine chair. But if you think it is a igh chair it must be alot smaller. It is nice and solid.

  4. Wow, Carlene, you got some great stuff! Love the high chair and especially the easel frame. Definitely the white pitcher is a blog mandatory...lol. I don't think I have any of the mandatory things like cloches, white ironstone, French grain sacks. Oh well. You find the coolest things!!
