Great thrift store day!!

My best thriftin' buddy and I used to go every Monday and go all day...  Now we are able to get out about once a month and are home in time for our afternoon nap.....but it is still great fun and found some treasures yesterday... hit 3 stores and all had senior discount day... a bonus...

First was this floral linen jacket (Coldwater Creek) which I will wear Friday.  Also found this dyed MOP necklace which matches perfectly.  I had to pick out the 6 most favorite things in my closet they would all have the Coldwater Creek label.  I am so sorry that they went out of business. Cost of jacket : $7


 
Then I found these four precious Cordon Bleu dessert plates ($1 for all)  I only wish there were 8.
Just the pan I wanted...  10" Fabreware which can go from stovetop to oven....like new ($2)
 
And can't forget the smaller things...  A soft green wool wrap, a great beige Italian silk tie, 4 cocktail napkins with whitework and scalloped edge and a piece of filet  lace perfect to make a case for my sunglasses.
 
 
 
And finally this elegant, 6" tall,  dusting powder dispenser with silver plated top ($1)...definitely will add class to my bathroom.  Also but not photographed, 2 pair twill slacks, several cool glass containers for buttons and some tassels for my Christmas project.  All in all a great day and we were home in time for a nice afternoon nap!!!

Coldwater Creek is back! They are publishing a daily email with items and catalogs as well.

I bet 3/4 of my wardrobe is their label. I was sad as well when they went away, and very happy when I got the first email announcing their return.

Trifting scores and napping are two of my favourite things. Glad you had such a successful day.

You did great! We went thrifting today but didn't score overly well. I got a couple new tops (and DH got some t-shirts) and a sweet little fall jacket for our grandson, along with an influx of books. The find of the day was a funky teapot to add to our kitchen decor. Kicking myself though that I didn't buy a tarnished silver toast holder. Couldn't think of a good use for it so left it there. Of course I got half way home and wished I'd picked it up.
