I haven’t done a lot of thrifting lately. Mainly because I am actively trying to de-junk my house and adding more junk (no matter how desireable it might be) seams to defeat the purpose of my de-junking. But when I happened to be at the thrift store looking for some Halloween items I ran across a couple of little lovelies.
I was in need of a little more ‘height’ in my fall decor on my mantle and I found these two Japanese stoneware plates for 75 cents each. They’ve been a nice addition.
I’ve also been much more disciplined in buying vintage sheets until I finally DO something with the ones I already have. But I couldn’t pass this one by.
Especially because it’s kind of the Holy Grail of thrifted sheets – a perfect sheet still in it’s original package! I have this print in blue, but I’ve never seen this one in this color scheme. Don’t ask me what I’m going to do with it.
Here’s the silliness of this purchase. The sheet was priced $5.99 (is it just me or have thrift stores caught on and are charging more for linens? Oh well, more power to them.) The original price tag was also still on the packaging. Am I right in thinking someone got this sheet for $3.33 at Grand Central back in the day?? Well, there’s a little lesson in inflation for you!
Happy end of Fall! (At least around here. Blizzard coming this way tonight and 19 degree (F) high temperature predicted for tomorrow. BRR! I don’t remember a Thanksgiving this cold! We’re hosting my husband’s family at our house this year. Lots more to do! (I’m going to try brining my turkey for the first time ever. Calli gave me confidence that I can do it. Actually, I might let my husband do it. He’s actually more excited about the process than I am, so I’ll let him. 🙂
