Cute Counts. This is yet another example of things I have saved from life in the thrift store. Top price: $ 1.00. How can someone donate all those hours of work? I don't get it, why buy one of those strip-mined department store hot pads when you can have one of these?
Swanky Swigs! I found my first set in the carrier at the Gold Rush Flea Market last summer, those are red and the ensemble cost me 11 big ones! I was jumping up and down happy; I had seen them for $ 35.00 at the antique store and wasn't feeling that flush, even if I loved them. These yellow and green ones appear brand new, and I paid 50c a piece for them. Swanky indeed!
Even a vase was colorful in the 1950s, this cutie was saved from The Great Big Thrift Store for $ 2.50 I think at one time she might have held an umbrella but we both like Tootsie Pops better!
I love the colors and the cheery usefulness of this earlier time. Now, I'm off to set the table with the turquoise Fiesta dishes and a pair of Swanky Swigs for my honey and me.
