I can't even begin to explain my excitement when I saw this wooden bowl sitting on the shelf at our local Goodwill; I snatched it quickly, thinking someone else was lurking, waiting to grab it first. I very slowly turned it over to see the price...our Goodwill has a way of marking more valuable things through the roof. They once were asking $50 for a set of stainless steel bowls...yes, they were probably well worth the price, but, really??? It's Goodwill. It's a thrift store. They were used. Okay, so I was a little afraid the price of this wooden bowl, which was clearly handmade and very old, would be priced way over my measly, thrifting budget.
I think it looks quite nice in it's new home. What do you think?
My next item is this cute little set of bowls...I found them in a local thrift store, which is much more fair with their pricing. You do have to look a little harder for hidden treasure there, but when you find it, what excitement!
I have no idea what the value of the bowls really is, and it really doesn't matter. I love them. They were made in Italy, and they have that glorious crackling that tells of years gone by. The fluted sides go nicely with my fluted ironstone tea cups and saucers that I picked up a few months ago, and the yellow trim on the inside...don't you just love it?!?
The most amazing thing... I paid only $.25 a piece! Yes, only $.50 for this sweet little set of bowls. I couldn't wait to come home and proudly display them in my kitchen.
This pretty, pedestaled, white bowl was too cute to pass up for $1.99. It looks like milk glass...not sure it is, though. Doesn't it make a perfect home for my lemons?
Thanks for stopping by. I can't wait to show you more thrifted goodies next week. I'm off to finish my coffee and endure another cold, rainy, May day in New England.
