Today I had some time to myself and I decided to go thrifting at a couple of places that I go to regularly but I went to a different city. Goodwill and Salvation Army. They did not disappoint! I went to the Goodwill first and looked at what seemed like everything and I just wasn't feeling anything. Then on the last aisle I went down I spied a red tea kettle. I made note to be sure and check that out before I left as there was a woman standing right in front of it looking. So I waited for her to get done and then walked over and picked it right up and turned it over and sure enough my hunch was correct!! It was a Le Creuset classic demi tea kettle. The price tag said 4.99. Score!! I looked it up at Williams -Sonoma and the suggested retail is 100.00 and their price was 70.00. So I got an excellent deal. It matches exactly with another piece I found, a Le Creuset ceramic utensil holder that I picked up about a year ago for .99cents. They are both a beautiful red ombre color.
I left there and headed over to the Salvation Army. I found a couple of things there. The most exciting to me was a piece of vintage Pyrex that matches with another piece I already have. And the price, I picked it up for 2.79. I was thrilled with this find too.
I found an awesome dress, this is a shift type dress, the Payne dress by Diane Von Furstenburg. I have been finding quite a few of her dresses and tops lately. This one is so cute. It originally sold for 425.00 when it first came out. I paid 9.19 for mine.
Then I found a pair of awesome ankle strap wedge sandals by UGG for 8.00. They are like brand new and just a quality well made shoe. A similar sandal on the UGG website retails for 110-140.00 so I got another great deal.
I found a really cute pink canvas tote bag by Robin Ruth for 1.99, LONDON is written all over it. I have the same brand bag with Hawaii on it, I thrifted it before my first trip to Hawaii. I saw it in a retail store for 35.00, the London bag is a little smaller but looks like a new bag. Very cute!
In a bin I found the cutest little wristlet by SAKROOTS. I love the print, it is so nice it has birds on it. It has kind of a waxy canvax look and feel. This little bag is brand new too.
Last but not least I found a box of vintage French verb cards. Flash cards from the 60's. I already had the vocabulary cards that I had thrifted about 2 years ago and now I have the verb cards from the same maker, Vis-Ed in pretty pink boxes.
Today was a good thrifting day!! I always think, I'll never find anything better than something I have already found and then I do! Reminding me that there are still plenty of treasures out there for you and me to find so keep looking!!!
