Treasures and Trinkets Tuesday #4

Hello my friends,
boy am I ever excited to share my new found treasures
 with you today!
 
I have picked up some really fun trinkets for an upcoming craft project, but I'm going to save them for a later date.
 
Yesterday two of my friends, Joanne; whom I met a few years ago through Instagram and Kaylyn, whom we connected through Instagram as well;  and recently met at one of my estate sales went gallivanting.
 
We had such a fun day of junking and laughter!  We hit a total of 8 thrift stores and shared lunch and conversation with one another.
 
Nothing could have been better to take my mind off of my recent worries!
 
Oh my, I had a RED hot day of thrifting!
 
Let's just say that I brought home a lot of red.  What could be better than that for this red lovin sista?  :)
 
I shared this photo this morning on both IG and FB.
 

I already have 2 or 3 glasses with this design in my basement kitchen.  Of course, I jumped on 8 more for $.75 cents each.  I'm not sure if the ones I have are the same size or not.  I need to go see.  My friend Joanne found the darling squared pedestal and passed it on to me.  It was $4.99.  She also found a red tool box and offered it to me.  I have a couple and talked her into keeping it for a Christmas display.  The small cherry glass was too cute to pass up, even if I just use it for display.  It was $.75 cents as well.
 

 
I love children's sewing machines and have a collection of 4.  Didn't have a red one and I scored it for $10.  Woot, woot!!


 
I knew I would be mad later if I passed up this red rocker for $15.  I will probably sand it a bit more and call it good.  We walked into a thrift and I instantly fell in love with this red cream separator.  It was marked $70 and they had an ebay picture next to it showing it being listed for $129.  I wanted it so badly, but didn't want to dish out quite that much.  Between Joanne and I talking to the sales woman she had the manager come out and she came down to $50.
SOLD!  (wink)  It will be so fun holding ornaments at Christmas time, don't you think?

 
For someone who hates plastic (pretty much anything), I brought home two items.  The white doily and the table runner.  I just thought they had that 'fun' factor.  The doily had plastic holly berries on it, but I cut them off.  They'll probably show up
in a craft project.

 
The runner is long and will be fun on a table now and then.  Great for my front porch!



A couple of $2.00 wicker baskets will end up in my pantry.  They are wonderful for holding food items.  You know that I would not have looked at them twice if they hadn't had the checked liners.  lol!
 



The last two items will be great when I am recovering after my surgery on the 25th.  Looks like it's going to be more extensive than what we originally thought.
 


 
I found other treasures that didn't fall into the RED hot category so I am saving them for a future post.

Here's hoping that you can find some junk for your trunk!!

It makes me ever so happy!
hugs,
Jann

I remember the little glasses with the cherries on them. Oh, it's something to be old enough to remember collectibles when they were new!

Let's get old enough to remember antiques when they were new!
Praying for you this morning.
