So I looked around a bit and immediately stumbled across this lovely little case! Upon later inspection I came to realize it is an old
Then I came across this HUGE popcorn tin. My SIL gave me one but it is a newer one and not nearly as big as they used to come. SO I've been looking for one for awhile to store our rice in. I think I'll paint the outside something fun!
In the same area I found some quart sized Ball jars. We all know why I need Ball jars! With all of the tins Belle found this little tiny tin she wanted. It was 50 cents so I let her keep it! I'll paint it for her as well and she can keep all of her little trinkets in it.
I then headed over to the toy section and my eyes locked in on a cabbage patch dolls. I don't know about you but my girls LOVE cabbage patch dolls. This one has stamped on the back of her head "first edition 1990". I KNOW they were around much earlier than that but it makes this little lovey a bit older than the rest of our cabbage patch dolls. I took her home cleaned her face with a wipe and stuck her in the washer and she looks brand new! She also looks very similar to my cabbage patch doll that I had when I was little. His name was Roger and he had chicken pox. Not sure how or why but he had chicken pox! Then Belle found a glow worm and had to have it! It was $1 so I just let her carry it around with her.
I ventured over to the glass cases where they had the higher dollar (ha!) items. If you consider $5 a high dollar item! They had baskets and baskets of vintage handkerchiefs. I picked out the fun ones and looked around some more.
They had these really cool old milk bottles but I wasn't sure what I'd do with them so I passed them up. They also had some blue glass medicine bottles that said "for ingestion" on them. I passed these up too because I was running out space in our little hand basket and Belle was tired of holding her glow worm and little tin.
She did spy this little pony behind the counter nothing special but she wanted it and I'm a sucker for that sweet little face. And a good bargain!
I didn't even get to look at clothing to refashion but there were racks and racks of it. Next time I will alot more time for thrift shopping!
Here is a pic of everything I got! All for $11.25! WOW! Oh AND that straw wreath form in the back. Almost forgot about that one! I have a BIG idea for that form for Halloween.
Love and Hugs,
