Thrifty Finds Today

I spent a wonderful afternoon with my friend K.  We went to ReHouse (salvage, etc.) and one of our favorite antique shops. It was a small haul but, I really am happy with my little purchases. In fact everything was on a little list in my head.

Brass candelabra (will be painted) $5, children's 50's tea set (looks like
jadeite) $10, zinc topped jars $8 (I especially like the one that has raised glass lettering
that says French's mustard, made right here in Rochester, NY).


I can't think of a better way to avoid to housework on a gorgeous, sunny, warm day. Can you?


  1. Oh my what bargains you got..almost worth a trip there
    Our salvage places are way overpriced..but a wonderland to walk through...I'm going to one in Iowa this weekend...what's ya need?
    I love that tea set!!!!!

  2. Oh...looking through your posts I see black cabinets...I would love to do that....but my husband wrinkles his nose....I think it works out nice with the white windows....any advice?

  3. The tea set! You really made a great find.
