My good friend and neighbour Karen, and I, went to our thrift store today..I love to go thrifting!

Here is our Thrift Store...

Here are the nice ladies who run the thrift store (Remember, I am your best friend ~ tee hee!)

This is what we looked at today.....

and this ~ I love dishes....I may have to go back for these It's only one place setting, but I could use them when no one is around ;-)

I know someone at Daisy Cottage who would like these...

Such lovely linens

This dress is sooo cute

I thinik I should have picked this up. I could use it next year in the Christmas vignettes!

O.K. I had to buy these ~ they're adorable!

Oh La La!  Where could I wear this?

Thanks Ladies SO MUCH for letting me show my blogland friends my thrift store!

Tell me, do you like thrifting?  I can't wait to hear from you



P.S. edited ~ Well, ladies I did go back and buy that silver compote.  Karen went with me and bought a copper pot.  Aren't we bad?!!!


  1. Hi Marianne,

  2. Tom and I went to town today to get a light bulbs and a plate for a little chandelier I purchased before the holidays... As soon as we get it installed I will share it... I have been look for one for quite awile and everything I wanted was just too much for my budget so I found a sweet one on ebay and will love it...I love thrift shopping but will be keeping it in check this year unless I just can't live without it and I have found I can live witout many mnay things... It's a mind set... I will be having a garage sale with many girly things this coming June maybe.. I will go through these couple months and see if I can part with more than I already have priced ready to go... Then maybe I will feel I can buy a few treasure here and there... I love so many of my objects however and don't want to rid of them... We have a chilly but sunny day here... Just a nice winter day... I would like to find more antique buttons with rhinestones and just pretty ones and store more in jars on display for easy cleaning but still on display...Just little treasure of eye candy... Enjoy your time with friends...

  3. Gosh...your thriftin' store looks so much better than mine! So glad you got those little shoes...they are so sweet!

  4. Yes, I have found a new love for thrifting. I am going to go back and look for more books to fill in my bookcases. One dollar a book is a great deal! I love that vintage linen you showed.

  5. Hi Marianne-
    I found your blog through Southern in my Heart...I love it!! You are so cheerful and your dog is an absolute doll...and YES. I LOVE thrifting!!!

  6. I love thrifting. I'd rather go to my local thrift stores than any retail store -- anytime. You found some great stuff. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Wow, that is a great thriftstore. I am afraid most of ours just carry a lot of junk, I'd never find so many treasures in one visit.
    Good luck with attacking that basement of yours. Looking forwar to seeing what you have done with it on Gitter Done!
    Greetings, from your namesake
