More Finds From The Thrift Shops

Some of my recent thriftshop finds, below - a tablecloth, a gorgeous Blue Ridge Pottery plate, a nice set of storage jars, and another restaurant china platter:

This is such a nice Case file cabinet, with a locking cupboard on the side - and I was happy that it still had the key:
I found a couple of crocheted doilies, this wooden frame into which I placed a Little Miss Muffet storybook print, two old Childcraft volumes, and a vinyl box:

I picked up a shutter and also a nice crewelwork stitchery picture:

A pretty vintage box of Montag stationery, and a set of four nice cotton napkins from Crate And Barrel:

I also found a Boston Bulldog pencil sharpener, below. Might seem like a weird thing to buy to some of you - but I was tickled to find it! Now I just need to find the right surface to nail it onto so that I can actually use it. And yes, I'd rather use this than an automatic one:
I'm just funny that way.

I have an old pencil sharpener too! I think they work so much better than the new ones. Do you remember the one we used to have in the hall closet in the old part of the house? I have one just like that one, I looked for years to find one. No, I haven't hung it up yet, I never found the right place. Maybe I need to just give up and put it in the hall closet! LOL. Love T

I so agree with you on going "low tech." I prefer a hand-crack can opener to the electric ones. But I gotta admit I opt for an electric juicer.
I always enjoy you girls' posts! I liked your Placerville history one from the other day too.

And nice storage items. Those glass canisters will come in handy as well as that sunny yellow file cabinet!
