It's been such a long time since I have shared a Thrifty Thursday post, so I thought it was time to share a little of what I have found while thrifting lately. I still frequent my favourite Op shops regularly, but am very careful with what I bring home, cause we are running out of room!
Several weeks ago, it was a rainy Sunday and there was a little fair on in our little town. These fairs are regular events throughout the year and usually just have open Op shops and stalls from people from the community. I almost stayed home, however decided to pop down for a quick look.
I am SO glad I did. The first stall I saw was from a lady I knew who taught me folk art painting when I was pregnant with Emily. Her stall was FULL of gorgeous vintage china and pieces that I adored. I wandered over and my eyes fell upon a sight that made me gasp.
Here's what I saw -
Aren't they divine! I couldn't get over to the stall quickly enough, these little deer salt and pepper shakers had to be mine! They were marked at $5 and still had their original cork stopers in them, so I quickly told the stall holder that I would buy them. Then my eyes fell on this -
A matching little deer vase. How gorgeous is that little baby with it's mother. And at $5 it came home with me too. It was LOVE at first sight.
So with excitement I went to pay my $10 for these gorgeous deers when my eyes fell on one more piece. Oh my, I could hardly contain myself.
This one is a wall vase and at $5 it came home with me too. I ADORE all of my little deer pieces and will continue to hunt for some additional pieces to add to my little collection. I think I will collect kitchy wall vases too, as I already have an apple one - so much fun!
Is there anything that makes you gasp when you see it in an Op shop? For me, there are SO many things, but at the moment, these little deers make my heart flutter.
I hope you've had some heart fluttering finds at the Op shop lately. xx Janelle
