I got the itchin', I hadn't been thriftin' since school started. So, after preschool today, I scratched that itch! I only went to the one thrift store where I know the owners, and let me tell you, I am glad I did! Although I didn't get a lot, here are a few of the treasures I did pick up:
I think I will use this big tray that everything is sitting on to make some type of table--either taller for a desk or a coffee table. I loved these pink dishes and I think they are vintage, but they don't have any markings. Does anyone know? This spice rack teeters between cool vintage for me and old crud. I like the chart on the inside, which has a 1965 copyright. I think I will paint the wood a fun color like deep red and leave the rest as is. The stool was nice and sturdy and will be easy to paint up with something cute. I loved the color of the vintage melamine dishes.
I also like these old travel coffee sets and the bar ones too. My parents had one and I was allowed to play house with it, but only sometimes. I am not sure if I will leave it as is, or paint something on the case.
My best deal was this reverse painted glass advertising picture from Butte, Montana. It is in excellent condition--I paid $1 for it!
I also got a great old turquoise blue fan, but it is in the garage and didn't make the photos. So, even though your mama probably told you, "Don't scratch!" and covered you with Calamine lotion, the thriftin' itch is one scratch that is worth itchin'!
