Retro Needlepoint Kitty with Flower from SA – $3.00
April has just been an incredibly busy month. I spent the first two weeks working on our taxes. With two businesses and two years’ worth of data to compile, it was a daunting task but I finished everything in time for our tax accountant.
Framed Needlepoint from SA – $2.33 EA
I still managed to make time to do some serious thrifting & saling; and found some really great items for my eBay and Etsy stores, like these framed needlepoint projects.
Wood and Wrought Iron Candelabra from SA – $5.00
I really love this candelabra and plan to upcycle it. Not sure if I want to keep it or resell it. I guess it depends on what I end up doing with it.
Ethnic Fork and Knife from SA – FREE
I’ve been on the look out for a wall-size vintage wood fork-and-spoon set so this set caught my eye. Not really what I’m looking for, but I think it’s rather unique. I made a large purchase that day so the clerk threw them in as a freebie.
Vintage Pair of Shoe Trees from SA – $3.00
These are a great home décor or conversation piece; and they’ll be going in my Etsy store.
LLEWELLYN BAKELITE PURSE from SA – $3.00
Can you believe I found this awesome vintage Llewellyn bakelite purse in the toy section?! It caught my eye because I thought it was a cute little container. Once home, I really inspected it and saw that it had a brand name. That’s when I realized it was a vintage purse – SCORE!
vintage grandmother’s garden floursack hand-quilted twin size quilt – from sa for $6
This quilt was a “STEAL” at only $6! It is definitely vintage and hand quilted. It is a twin size and is shown hanging over a queen-size mattress.
I saw it in a shopping cart filled with other linens that one of the employees was bringing out. I asked to see it but she said I had to wait until she put it out. So I
stalked followed her around. A few other customers were also stalking following her for the quilt; but when the time came, she remembered I was the first to inquire and handed it to me. I clutched onto it and made sure no one would steal take it out of my cart.
It wasn’t tagged so I still had no idea how much it cost. Comforters have a set price of $12; and since this was half-off Friday, I paid ONLY $6 for this beautiful quilt!
I also managed to get out a couple of Saturdays to do some garage saling. I found some great treasures but this vintage hostess set for $1 is my favorite:
Vintage Shell Pink Milk Glass Hostess Set – Garage sale find for only $1
Also made it to a few GW stores and found some really neat things to upcycle. I’ve been haunting the Etsy stores and have seen the wonderful treasures in those popular POP colors. I’m feeling a little creative and may give it a try.
Happy thrifting and selling!
Believe in yourself and prosper!
