Fabulous Finds!

My two sons and I popped over to Value Village today - I hadn't been there in well over a week, and I was itching to go. Is that weird? It's a different feeling for me, that's for sure.

I trolled the aisles for some finds - and saw a lot, but am trying to keep the cost and quantity down - especially the quantity of things because we are moving in less than 3 weeks! The more I buy, the more I pack.

Here are my fab finds...I just love them!!

I got my first piece of Fire King Oven Ware! I have seen a few pieces in blogland, in people's vignettes and such, and I love it! I must say, 3 months ago, I would have passed this I was drawn to it, like a moth to a flame! I looked on the net, and my piece is probably from the 1950's. COOL!!! The price? $3.99! Is that good? lol

I was going to make some coasters with some old tiles that we had and some cork, but I saw these for $2.99 and snatched them up. I don't know what kind of material they are made out of, seems like a smooth stone. I love the lines on it. I am going to do up some vinyl (maybe a monogram?) and pop it on there.

Ok, so maybe I am a bit of a copy cat - or, shall we say - imitation is the sincerest form of flattery? I've seen the Ampersand symbol floating around blogland as well, and when I saw this, I had to have it. It's ceramic, and kind of a pearly white. I'm not sure what colour to paint it - white or black? I might have to wait until we move, and then I can see what colour strikes me. Oh ya - it was $1.99.

Did you find anything fabulous lately?

  2. Great finds! I went out yesterday to garage sales and found a few good things myself (they're posted if you want to come check them out). I love the "&" - something like that would look great on a mantel! And, don't worry, I get the 'itchin' to go to the Goodwill too, my hubby totally doesn't get it!
