Yesterday I frequented one of my favorite thrift stores, Value Village, for the Half Off Wednesdays which occur on the last Wednesday of every month. While I had found some great deals at these Half Off days (see some here and here), I had been unable to stop in over the last few months, what with Thanksgiving and Christmas and everything.
My finds have been better but I still found a few things of note, all for under $7.00 I might add! Here is a little round-up:
I got this candelabra for 75 cents. I think it will look great in our fireplace, perhaps with some taller pillar candles placed around the tea lights that will grace the top of this metal structure. I think it will make the tea lights look like they are floating and some day when we have a larger dining room table, it would work well for a table setting.
The next two finds are related. Ever since this wish list post, I have been wanting to add to my cloth napkin collection. Eventually, I'd like to have a variety of different colors and textures that I can work into various table settings. I found these sets of four for 1.99 each (each set of two were originally 1.99)! I could see a cool blue wintery table setting with these napkins and a Spring time table setting surrounding irises or another beautiful purple flower. Not bad considering comparable napkins can run anywhere from 8.00 to 15.00 dollars for a set of two!
I also found two new paperbacks that I bought for less than four dollars--one looks like it's never even been cracked open! It's a little hard to see from the photo but they are Three Junes by Julia Glass and The Color of Water by James McBride.
Back when I reviewed I See You Everywhere, another of Julia Glass' novels, someone suggested I read Three Junes. Imagine my excitement when I found it (for cheap!) thrifting yesterday. Once I finish my current book list, these will be next up!
