and came home with goodies. On Saturday, my friend T. and I went for a walk and saw this little festival just getting started. It was a Strawberry Festival at a local church. The bouncy castle was hard to cut out of the photo and it was rather cloudy so I apologize for that.
There weren't fresh berries to bring home (boo hoo), but they had a big bowlfuls of cut up and sugared ones that would be poured over pieces of cake with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Since I really hadn't walked that far to allow me this indulgence, I kept myself busy looking at all the trash-or-treasure items displayed. Of course, a few found their way home with me.
This was $2.00 and I will try my hand at spray painting it either a cream or that light green color. Any helpful hints or pointers on how to do this are appreciated. Makes a nice cookbook holder. Of course, any thing with feathers always catches my eye.
Then I saw this dish, and one of the church ladies said it was 50 cents. After flipping it over, she said, "Oh no, this is a $1.00." I said OK.
She threw in this cup, which doesn't belong, but I'll come up with something. The plate on EBay sells for $15.99.
This set me back 50 cents. Reminds me of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, one of my favorite places to visit.
As did this.
And my favorite (and most expensive, at $3) item of the day:
Unopened glass teapot with an assortment of flowering teas. If they work I will be sharing some tea with you.
Two dinner plates and an oval serving dish all three for $2. So, I will have to go buy berries in the supermarket, but I think I found some cute little items to play with!
I will be joining Diann at The Thrifty Groove for Thrifty Things Friday. For around here, this is pretty thrifty. Please stop by when you can to check out the real buys that these ladies find!
