Lately my errands seem to conveniently take me near my local thrift store, which always deserves a visit. Sometimes I leave empty handed, but there's always the chance for a great bargain to be had. I also love that the thrift store is a non-profit which serves the community.
Some recent finds include this pile of china for a mere $4. I already had 4 cups/saucers to match, which I had found at Brimfield Flea Market. I love this pattern!
Here is a beautiful framed print of Little Madonna. This image is also referred to as 'Our Lady of the Streets'. More information about the history of the portrait can be found here. I find it compelling, especially the angelic image of the sleeping babe.
Some pink pretties were also found thriftin':
The colors in this paper lantern are soft and pretty. I got 4 of these for $1! They'll be terrific for garden parties next spring.
This paper fan with reproduction Victorian images is adorable:
It's hard for me to pass up pretty bowls such as this one:
The thrift store can be hit-or-miss, but lately it's been more hits!
I'll be sharing these with Debra's Vintage Inspiration Friday and Courtney's Feathered Nest Friday.
