Thrifty Thursday

hand hammered brass vase $2 thrift score

My thrift store visits have been drastically reduced since my husband always has so much to do on his days off. We usually go together. I did make a quick pitstop in a local thrift and found these small goodies.
The brass vase above was a just because purchase. I liked it, I bought it, I probably won't keep it forever.

brass letter holder $1 thrift score
The letter holder is something I have been wanting for a long time. There are fantastic options on Etsy and Ebay but I just couldn't decide on one I love enough to pull the $20 trigger. I figure a $1 expenditure is best if I will just tire of it.

Any good finds in your neck of the woods?

I haven't been thrifting in quite a while. I never seem to find anything like. I may have to find some new shops.

Great finds! Love thrift stores, but not too many good ones around DC. Not that I know of. Maybe someone can share? You did very well, Kerry! Have a wonderful long weekend!
