One of my many passions is shopping at thrift stores. When I find a treasure for my home or garden, feels just like Christmas to me. I have to say this trait was definitely inherited from my Father. He was recycling way before it became trendy. When he began a project, he always used every single piece of material he had collected before visited the local lumber yard.
My find this week was 2 cookbooks, a BO Brady Co vintage milk white vase, a silver plated Gorham serving dish, 4-Syracuse Old Cathay plates, a wine plate and stopper and a candle holder, all for $7.00. One of the cookbooks had a lot of hand written recipes tuck throughout the pages which made it even more special. My curiosity will always get the best of me when thrifting so I always do some research on line. If I sold these items on e-bay, I could possibly get $60.00. WOW, feels like I hit the jackpot.
