TREASURE HUNTING

Austin and I took off to the Goodwill Clearance center a few weeks ago. I usually do not shop at the clearance center because it is just a bunch of junk. I know Sharon likes to go to hers so I figured I would give it another try. Everything is .99 cents per pound so we made out real good. Here are some of our finds.
This very tall wooden Santa. I think there is supposed to be a Mrs. Santa too, but- oh well.



These nearly brand new candle holders that look like Christmas balls. I have always wanted some of these so I was very excited to find them.
A great pocket book for Christmas.
Some of you saw my silver collection last Christmas. I now have this silver jewlery box too.



And I found these two silver goblets. The bottom said made in Italy so I fiqured they would polish up. See how tarnished they were.Now look. I can see my self with the camera.

I found a vintage pocket book. The picture does not do it justice! I love old purses.
And I got this pocket book for me to carry. Everyone has just loved it and keeps asking where I bought it. LOL!

Then I found these Norman Rockwell coffee mugs! Aren't they faboulous?

We also went to Safe Harbor. It is a local thrift store that donates all proceeds to battered women. I found these unusual vintage cups. This is the box.
This is the cup. It is a glass cup inside a plastic holder. It is two pieces and you just snap them apart. Isn't that unique?

Austin and I had a really great time. We were digging in all the bins and cracking up at some of the stuff. When I had picked up the silver goblet he found this huge wicker wall fan. I told him to fan me while I drank out of my silver goblet. We were just cracking up and people must have thought we were crazy. We had such a fun time together. I could not get any pictures during our outing, since my new camera is broken. I have to use my camcorder and that is not easy to lug around! Thanks for looking at all my treasures.

What a great day you had! I love all your treasures! You really scored. I like the silver box and your cute purses. I also think those snap together cups are very cool too! See....you can find wonderful things at the Goodwill!

Hugs, Sharon
P.S. I keep praying for your family. I hope you are all doing okay after the tragedy.
