This past weekend was full of final soccer games of the season, family visits, birthday parties for loved ones, and picnics, so I didn't manage to fit in any yard sales. I did take a little bit of time while I was "kid free" last week to drive down to the Goodwill outlet to prowl around for some hidden treasures. As tempted as I was by a number of things that I saw, I only picked up a few items.
|I left the room after photographing the box for this post and returned to find E2B enthusiastically checking out the contents.|
|I don't think that any of these materials have been used, but clearly some of the liquids have evaporated over time.|
|I have several boxes like this that I really enjoy - the tile evokes a sense of time and place that speak to a quiet place.|
|E2B read about stamp collecting in a book at school this year and has been faithfully collecting his own stamps ever since. At the bargain price of 25 cents, I knew that he would get a kick out of flipping through it.|
|This one is just a little guy, but I have a variety of sizes.|
|A little touch of practicality - this will come in handy for keeping drinks cold when we're out and about this summer without having to drag along a big cooler.|
And now onto this week's giveaway, this small vintage Couroc owl plate. Ever since so many folks commented about the tray and glasses I left behind at a church rummage sale last month, I've been thinking about sharing this little number with another Couroc/owl fan out there.
If you'd like to win this plate for yourself or as a fun treat for someone else, please leave a comment on this post by midnight EST on Saturday evening and I'll draw a winner by next week's Thrift Share post. I'm linking up to Apron Thrift Girl.
Happy Monday, friends!
"If you don't own a cast iron skillet, it's well worth the time and money to invest in one. You can find them for sale...[at] thrift stores, flea markets, or you can scour the tag and yard sales for one that might look as if it has seen better days. If the pan is rusty or encrusted with grease, buy it anyway. Don't worry! I'll tell you how to get that new or old one into shape so you can enjoy it for a lifetime of fat free cooking. You'll be able to pass the pan on to your own children and grandchildren." ~ whatscookingamerica.net (cast iron cookware page)
