I DO love thrift shopping, especially when I find things like this - a gorgeous quilt top in a rainbow of colors:
A huge metal tray that will make a fab magnetic memo board, and a pair of pretty plates:
A green gingham apron to add to my collection, and some great old buttons which may or may not be Bakelite:
He is a really nice older one - hard plastic - not the kind you could poke a hole into, but the kind that would crack into shards. Definitely a keeper for my vintage holiday collectibles that I LOVE:
And a little Hottle by Takahashi (minus it's cup, but still cute!), and a nice glass covered cake keeper I made by "marrying" two pieces found separately. (By the way, that sold about five minutes after I put it on the shelf at the shop!):
It's so much fun finding neat stuff!
