Anyway, Friday they had a 50% off on all house goods. Yep. The heart started racing.
Here's my favorite thing I found while there. A vintage ironstone pitcher and bowl. 9 buckaroos. Has a crack and chip in the handle. So endearing.
This next shot includes a set of 4 Stratfordshire plates and a carved wooden tray, 2 cheese servers which will eventually be some chic cloches, and an apothecary jar with some seriously gross soap which will be dumped and replaced with something lovely. Everything else came from the Salvation Army jaunt I made on Thursday.
Lastly, I poked my nose into Big Lots and found this stuff as I was returning shade number 362 in my search for shades on my big brass redo.
Super cool ribbon for $1 a spool, some glasses that will become the base for some homemade cake platters ($1 each), neato varigated woven basket in browns and aquas, and yes, a Martha Stewart wedding cake topper. I'd admired it at Walmart several times, and I think it will be freaking awesome as part of a vintage-look Easter/Spring vignette. $2, what can I say?
