These wonderful brown transferware plates I found at the thrift shop for and unbelievable..........50 cents each!
I LOVE a BARGAIN!!! Who doesn't though?? But recently I found two that I just had to SHARE with you!.....The first one was not a mere bargain, but it was absolutely FREE! I would have missed it if I had not at the last minute jumped in the car with my HUSBAND to go get a take-out for dinner. There we were riding out of our neighborhood, when ole "eagle eye" me spotted this lovely chair sitting on the side of the street ready for the trash man the next morning! I screamed for my husband to back up (thank goodness we were in his truck!) and retrieve this JEWEL which he did very obediently , I might add! Wow! I couldn't believe it when we arrived back home and I got a good look at what I had gotten! Granted, it needs recovering, but it is now sitting in my livingroom .......notice the hand-carved wood on this baby! I just LOVE IT!
My next "almost free" FIND are the lovely transfer-ware plates that I found at a local THRIFT store. I have always admired the brown transferware and had not been able to find any that I could AFFORD! These beauties were made in ENGLAND and would have a nice little price tag on them at an ANTIQUE SHOP. They had a price tag on the bottom of 99cents but when I took them to the check-out , I found out they were half price that day , so I paid a whopping 50cents each for them! Why , I had to pay 4 times that for the HANGERS I purchased to display them with!
I would love any comments you have and would like to KNOW about some of your BARGAINS or FREEBIES too! <><
