Consignment Shop Shopping

July 18, 2012
I had a fairly good week out thrifting. I didn't attend any garage sales.

I just picked up this super chippy, distressed, light green, wooden crate today for $6.

Also today, a $1 darning egg.

The end of last week, a great vintage, marked Japan with wreath, gray tabby figurine. 6 1/2" tall. Perfect condition. $2.

Also last week, an 8 1/4" tall tambourine lady figurine. Marked ING Copyright $3. Also a made in Japan, yellow swan planter $1? 3 1/2" tall.

I picked up this red candle holder plate on the left for $2. I thought it was sooooo close to my Fiesta Scarlett dishes that it would work. Unmarked. Red glazed clay.

All of my finds were in great condition, except for the wood box and darning egg, which had the RIGHT amount of chipping.

I hope you got a chance to go thrifting this week. It's sooooo fun!
