Treasure Box Wednesday: A Little Shine in the Thrifted Finds


I got a chance to go on a little thrifting expedition with my shopping buddy, Scoobie, last weekend and I wanted to share with you my shiny (literally) new goodies. The first was this Kathy Van Zeeland purse I got for six bucks at the Red, White and Blue in Bellevue. With its mint green color and pearl finish, I think it will be really nice for spring.


I'm not much of a shoe girl, but handbags somehow really speak to me.

The other item I got was this large, Westmoreland/Smith glass carnival basket from the McKnight Road Goodwill. 


It's one of those things that leapt right out at me, and I had a feeling due to the busyness of the store, that I was absolutely the only one there who was going to get excited about it. I know carnival glass isn't for everyone--which in this case was to my advantage!

Wishing you happy days as our mild winter fades away into spring.

I love your basket. I have not found anything at the McKnight Road GW for soooo long. I used to go often when they had much vintage jewelry then, they never had it and I stopped going. Have you seen any big bags of mixed jewelry anywhere in the past year? I wonder if they stopped selling it that way. Your treasures are always interesting. That bowl is truly beautiful.

Hi Jenn.
Sometimes don't you wish you had a free year or so and a unlimited bank card that you didn't have to pay for and could use whenever you wanted to?
Just think of all the thrifting you could do. SIGH! Wouldn't that be great?!?
Oh well, back to reality.
I am a purse collector and the one you bought is very nice....esp. the price. I also like the victorian styled tray....very pretty. I like carnival glass, but I don't collect it, and the piece you bought is also very nice.
I hope you get a lot of pleasure out of all 3 items.
Stay safe and take care.
Lois
