Saturday Thrifting in West Palm Beach

Everyone says that more and more people are shopping the thrift stores and it is true here on Saturdays. There was nowhere at all to park at World Thrift, Goodwill.....And the cars in the parking lot ranged from old trucks to new BMWs.

I still found a few good things today. Two paintings of flamingos, acrylics and very large. The huge one with the two birds, approx 3.5 ft by 2 ft. was $5.00. The smaller, (just slightly smaller) was $4.00. Unless I get decent frames on them, they will perk up our laundry room.

I found three great oval plates with blue and lime pagodas on them marked "Jackson China, Creighton's International Restaurant". I'll probably never find more of those.

One luncheon plate in Erin's green Corelle (there must be a huge gang out there collecting this stuff, it's nearly impossible to find now.) And three first edition copies of books I've always loved.

Pretty good day all around.

Well, I just hung them in my laundry room, and they certainly are cheery!!! Of course, that is where we keep the litter box. And one kitty is terrified of LARGE BIRDS. I will have to find out if she notices the art on her laundry room/cat bath wall.....

Thanks for your comment!
