Hi everyone! Even though this past week-end was filled with Easter preparation and celebration, I squeezed in a quick trip to Goodwill and the Habitat for Humanity ReStore on Friday afternoon. Lucky for me, they are right across the street from each other. Still no garage sales in my neck of the woods (and won’t be until late April, at the earliest), so I have to rely on thrift stores and the occasional estate sale to score any vintage finds. Let’s take a look at what I brought home with me, shall we?
I viewed this flower and blue bird-decorated creamer as my personal harbinger of spring–yes, spring it here! (cost: $2.99, value: $12.00). FLASH SALE PRICE: $10.00 + SH
More reminders of spring–loving all this green. My sweet daughter collects “hour” glasses, so I picked the little timer up for her (cost: 39¢).
I sell these vintage utensil trays quite quickly at my shop (cost: $1.00, value: $12.00). FLASH SALE: $9.00+SH.
I’m betting this impressionistic landscape will look terrific framed (see below for truer colors); however, it’s an odd size–8″ x 11″ (cost: $1.99, value: $20-25.00 w/o frame). FLASH SALE: $16.00.
The colors are really lovely, aren’t they?
I’ve never seen a vintage oak splint basket this size or shape before. It holds a 9″ pie plate perfectly, and for that reason, I’ll be hanging onto it for a while (cost: $1.00, value: $12-15.00).
For help determining the value of your baskets,

Did you see the silverware box Marie at Interior Frugalista made-over into a catch-all box? I loved the idea!
She painted the exterior and ripped out the interior. I can’t wait to get started on mine (cost: $2.99).
The ReStore was holding a $10.00 sale on all desks when I was in on Friday, including this charming keyhole desk. She’s really in pretty good shape (cost: $10.00, value: $65-85.00).
And the drawers are dove-tailed, indicating a higher quality manufacture.
The top is only lightly scratched. I had thought I might want to leave the top and the drawer fronts unpainted, and then paint the rest–I’ve seen that done a lot lately, but I’m going to have to have a think about that. I’ll be sure to let you know what I decide–
Thanks so much for stopping by–
