I think my favorite find for only two dollars was this set of Christmas glasses in their original box. They were in perfect shape and I thought not used more than once or twice but when I paid for them the sweet lady told me that she had many years out of them. I thanked her for not putting them in the dishwasher and ruining them. The lady also told me she got them from the old lady they bought their house from and she loved them too. I hope I can carry on the good care. I couldn't quite get the whole phrase "Designed for gracious living" in the picture.
I love crochet and thought this was beautiful shape, it certainly looked vintage to me. I was so excited to have just the right tablecloth for my little living room side table. It wasn't until I got home and and put it out that I noticed someone had gone through all the work to put their initials in the center, then I turned it around and realized what it said! Too funny!! I love it anyway and there is usually something on the table covering up the middle.
This was my last find and it took me forever to decide if I really wanted it. I like it but have so many pieces of art not put up, I felt guilty buying another one. But the colors really go with my living room and there was something homey about the watercolors. The real test was if my Mom liked it, she has an innate sense of style and decor, it passed the test!
