Thrift Store Finds

As I mentioned in my previous posts, I went to the two local goodwill stores in my area (both of the Concord locations) on Saturday afternoon. And while I didn’t find a super large frame like I wanted, to create a customized bulletin board for my boss’s office, I did find some REALLY great stuff!

Like these two milk glass compotes, which I used to plant herbs in...

And I picked up three of these 8x10 frames for just $3.99 a piece!  I have already spray painted one pink to hang some artwork in my kitchen.

And all of these milk glass bud vases which I instantly filled with yellow roses from my rose bushes out front.  I think I spent a total of $10.00 for 6 vases!!!

  2. Those compotes are great! I never find anything great at my Goodwill. I'll have to start traveling to the other ones in town.

  3. Love all the milk glass, they must look neat planted with herbs!

  4. The milk glass is lovely, I am sure that the herbs in them look great. I will have to keep trying at my local Goodwill stores, I haven't had too much luck so far.

  5. I love milk glass also. You found some cute pieces and the vases look so pretty with the white roses in them! I fill mine with hydrangeas.
