Hello Thrifting, I'm Back!

Guys I feel so much better since I ordered that hearing aid! I was in so much physical pain and mental stress for the last few months that it feels like a break in the clouds finally. Losing the pain is bitter-sweet since I like being pain-free. Unfortunately it also means my brain has successfully shriveled up and discarded parts which supported hearing but what can I do about that? There's no way to restore it so I just have to move forward and assume the worst is over.

I'm planning to sign up for a marketting or business class at the local college on Tuesday and guess what? You know how I've been volunteering at the little thrift store for a while? They want me to continue coming in at the same hours but leave me in charge! Its only 3 hours a week at $10 an hour so it will probably just cover the cost of thrifting but I would still be there doing the exact same stuff anyway :D

Life is good.

Salvation Army:
4 Pink plates - 4.99
6 Saucers - 2.99
6 Cups - 1.99
Sugar bowl - 1.99
Lasagna cutter - Free

The store had a bunch of random new old stock. Check out that outlet price - I need to source directly from here!

I don't know why the saucers were $1 more. They do wack things with pricing guns.

Not my style but cute

I kept debating these because I wasn't sure if this is depression glass. Goofing around on eBay makes me think these are randomly pink plates I overpaid for.

The store had a TON of this junk from Fortunoff. They were $1.99 each and the ladies in front of me bought about $60 of it after opening EVERY box to inspect the contents. The manager saw they left this tarnished one and said it looked ruined. I said they would all eventually tarnish like this anyway. She nodded and said I could have it. This was TOTALLY weird since this lady is the grumpiest, harshest person I've ever dealt with repeatedly.

Anyway I don't keep high maintenance stuff or sell stuff which leads to bad feedback so I will polish it and donate it at the little thrift store.

This stencil is for my first grade niece.

Check out the spanishness of it!

Covering the cost of thrifting sounds a good plan to me. Thanks for sharing all your treasures. Love the silver!

Nice finds! I keep looking for Villeroy and Bach, but haven't found any yet. I'm so happy to hear that you're feeling better :)
