First, I found this pitcher and bowl at Goodwill for $3.00. I think it will come in handy this fall…
Goodwill also had this wooden tray for $2.00. Maybe I’ll actually organize my kitchen table, which currently serves as a dropping off point for everyone. I think I'm expecting a lot for only $2.00!
Finally, I found this sweet set of vintage china. There are only a few pieces, but I thought it was pretty and I was mainly interested in the small platter.
On to the auction for Day 2 (read about Day 1 HERE):
A note about auctions: sometimes the auctioneer throws a couple of items together to sweeten the pot. More times than not, I’m only interested in one of the items. Other times, it works out nicely.
This French pitcher, pink (yes, it is actually pink) candy dish, and marble bowl went for only $5.00 for all three. I seem to have a new found love for pitchers, especially French ones. Not sure what I will do with the bowl, but I do like the candy dish.
I fell for this hand-painted German teacup and saucer. It is so dainty and artist was very talented.
The auctioneer added this unique Japanese teacup and saucer and I was able to get both for $10.00.
I bought this serving set for $5.00. I think it will be perfect for serving shrimp and cocktail sauce during the holidays. The base is silver. I used silver polishing cream twice and it is still quite tarnished. I think I’m going to have to work on it a while.
I promised Debbie I would spotlight the table linens, but I don't want to wear you our. I will show those to you in a day or two when it is sunny and I can get some good shots.
I’m linking this post to Linda’s Nifty Thrifty Tuesday’s. Stop over and see what everyone is up to.
