Thrift Store Finds

Here are my finds from a recent trip to the Value Village thrift store.

We’ll start with some wardrobe accessories …

Not only is this pure silk scarf a perfect colour scheme (in my opinion anyway … love those jewel tones) it is also huge and in excellent condition. Being 34 inches square, it’s big enough to wrap around my neck twice. Such a soft luxurious find that will add a nice pop of colour to my black coat.

I’m not one for large handbags, so this little find was a good one. It’s a leather purse made by Roots, and is so clean and new looking that I wonder if it’s ever been used. It will be perfect for toting my tiny camera, lipstick and other necessities while out on the town.

And now a decorative item. I was drawn in by the powder blue colour of this vase, which I believe is from the 40s or 50s, one of those rare true vintage finds from the thrift store.

I was glad to find a couple more of these Corelle bowls, trimmed with a jade-green line, to add to my collection.  They aren’t very old but are in like-new condition and we needed more bowls. They mix and match perfectly with our vintage pieces.

Check out these neat coasters.  They are made from slices of genuine marble with a piece of felt glued to the underside, and marked with a label that says ‘Madoc Rocks, Made in Canada’. They would have originally been part of a four piece set, but I was happy to have the 3 of them. They are nice and heavy and won’t stick to the bottom of your glass.

The company who made these unique marble ones (website here) uses the cute tagline ‘Serve it on the Rocks’. Don’t mind if I do!

And look at what I had the willpower to leave behind! See it there, a nice looking stack of my favourite Corelle pattern, Spring Blossom? Yes, I did dive upon them when I saw them tucked back there on the shelf, only to find that, while they look perfect in the picture, they were well-used and each had scratches and utensil marks.
