What I Love About the Thrift Store

Friday, September 30, 2011

Hi there, we had a decent turnout last week for our first ever thrifty link party! Thanks for linking up and linking back, if that was you! Lets check out some YOUR thrifty treasures shall we?


You wanna see some of my thrifty goodness? Check out these giant thimbles! They are about 5 or 6 inches tall. And I see another jumbo button in my future! All this is perfect decor for my office/jewelry/craft/sewing room (that needs serious help by the way). Which way would you display the thimbles, as a pocket or in the other direction?

Hey all you thrift veterans, how do you know when you've found real mercury glass? Give me some pointers please. I don't think these are the real deal but they are pretty fabulous anyway! They have a hint of yellow in them. 60¢ for the set!

This my friend is what I love about the thrift store! Be inspired and go find something this weekend!
Show us what you found last week! I'd love a link back if you link up. Thanks for reading.

  1. What great finds!!! I love the jumbo thimbles!


  2. Hi,
    Thanks so much for featuring my wheat dishes. I love your thimbles! I think they would be so cute as a pocet with sewing notions or fat quarters sticking out. Have a greeat weekend!

  3. It's me again. lol! Forgot to tell you that I have quite a bit of mercury glass that I display at Christmas. Not sure how to tell, who knows, some of mine might be fake. But I love it, so that's o.k.

  4. Thanks for starting a new party! I have linked back to your blog but am unsure of what the party is called. If you let me know I can fix the link on my page. So glad I found your page.
    I would love to be able to pick through all of the wonderful buttons in the jar.❤

  5. What fun finds! So many cute things. Thank you for joining TTF and I am so sorry I am so late in visiting this week!
