I dropped off 8 big bags and two bins of linens, books, glassware, tchotchkes, and yardsale leftovers to My Favorite Thrift Store on Saturday morning. I love that store. They have lots of good stuff, they run it like a business with very little “picking over” by the staff, and things are priced to move in order to make their charity money. What more could a person ask for?
So, of course, I had to go inside and shop a little after dropping off my donations. How could I not? The first grouping of piggy banks are all gag gifts for Christmas, the apple bowls aren’t marked on the bottom (the guy at the thrift store said they were Federal Glass — don’t think so). They are glass baking/serving dishes.
The wood “bowl” is actually a new chopping board. The price tag on the back said $59 (!!!) – I paid $2.00. I think the idea is that you can chop herbs and vegetables in the bowl side with a rounded chopper (which I just happened to buy at the thrift store a few months ago), and then flip it over to the flat side and use that as a regular chopping surface. The linen napkins are new (and mine now), the little hand blown glass pitcher is exactly like one I bought a few weeks ago in a different color. Woohoo! Another wonderful Pyrex bowl (Butterfly Gold Cinderella Mixing Bowl) and some peachy coasters.
