Saturday Thrift Ship Finds

Thrifting 
My favorite past time on a Saturday morning.
I found lots of goodies today.  The shops are all having 50% off sales so that made it even more fun.

So many fun things to include in my shop WeeLambieVintage

I love finding books.

The Illustrations are amazing.
This story book Homer Price by Robert McCloskey the author of Make Way For Ducklings is filled with great drawings.  I remember this donut shop story from childhood.

The Wind In The Willows ....filled with color illustrations.
Illustrations by Ernest H. Shephard
This little toothpick holder caught my eye.
I love that little bird and wishbone!
Lots of brass and shiny objects caught my eye as well.
Little copper pans, a brass pear, filigree gold mirror, copper candlestick.....
It was all lots of fun and I got this great pink cotton purse to use for a knitting project bag.
This one is all mine!

Once again the top of my dining room table is hidden.
The table still has the extra leaves in it from Christmas.  All covered up now!
It was a fabulous morning!

Ann ? I did not realize we had so much in common. I love most of the stuff you do !
I am also a knitter !! Right now I am knitting the ruffle scarves and selling them to make money for my Kairos Prison MInistry.
What do you knit ?
I want to come down and go thrifting with you some day.
