My First Thrift Store Finds of The Year

Now that the holidays are past and I have bought presents for all on my list, I can go get some thrift store finds for myself.  I managed to do just that the other day at my local Goodwill store.  There are times when I go there that I don't find something but that does not happen often.  I did quite well this visit and thought I would share them with you.

 This lovely cut glass, gold metal footed display bowl was the first item I found.  It was marked for $9.00 and I was quite pleased to pay that for it.  There were no chips or damage of any kind to it so I was happy to put it in my cart.  I had just the place for it on top of a display case in the hall way.  It cleaned up very well and am please with the results.  

 This little fish I spotted and knew it would go well with the vignette I have in one of my rooms.

 It's made of wood and painted quite nicely I think.  It was marked for $2.99.

This pillow cover was still in it's original packaging so it had never been used.
 I had a pillow the right size that I did not like that well so it covered it very well and gave me a piece I can use.  It helps to balance out another display in my hall by the bedrooms very well.  It was marked at $3.99.
This tray had not been put out on the shelves yet as it was still in the bins that were ready to be put out.  Of course I look through these bins as they sit out ready to be put on a shelf.  
 It's a nice black wood tray that looks like it has had very little use.  I like getting nice trays that have interesting detail for display around the house.  
 It found a spot for the time being in the front room plant display area.

It was marked at $4.99.

It's always fun to see what useful treasures I can
find at my local thrift stores.
