Friday's Find #160

Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I spent part of the rainy weekend splashing through the puddles to a few sales. First, I went to the sale of several sisters who evidently were quilters. Silly me, wondered if anyone else would be out in the rain or if the sale may have even been cancelled altogether. Ha! There was barely standing room in the packed garage. They were selling tons of fat quarters and crafting supplies and everything was $1. I'd picked out several things and was actually standing in line when I saw bags of Indian corn in this old crock. The corn was priced but the crock didn't appear to be for sale, but of course, I had to ask. Good thing I did-- I got the crock and all of the corn inside for $3! Happy dance!

I'll share more of my treasures from that sale next week since I'd already photographed the rest of my finds. Next, I went back for second day mark downs at an estate sale on my block. I had my eye on a few things I hoped would still be there half price. First, another pretty vintage perfume decanter. With it's delicate gold design, it will be the perfect addition to my spa on wheels. Here's the photo I'd taken the day before and guess what? It was still there!

Another small handmade primitive corn husk doll. This little sweeper is only a little over 3" tall. Available in my new shop on the blog! I'm gradually transitioning my vintage shop here, so bear with me during the process and check back often as I'll be adding new inventory each week.

I have never seen anything like these adorable tiny cornucopia napkin rings. I scored a bag of 20 at a local thrift store. I will be keeping half for an upcoming project, but the other 10 are Available.

Until next time, happy hunting!
