Keeping it Green
The Salvation Army Thrift Stores came up with a nifty concept for Earth Month. For two days this week, all green-coloured items of any kind were half price.
So, on Friday I bought some green stuff (dishes and clothes) and saved some green stuff (yes, that would be money). Technically I wouldn't have bought anything if they didn't have the sale, so I didn't really save any money, but at least I'm reusing. Thrift store shopping is one great way to help our environment, after all.
I got this large Bowring serving dish, above, still in the box, for $3.50. Doesn't it just say "spring time?"
I also picked up this green glass bowl.
And this pretty floral serving bowl.
I picked up two of these pizza serving dishes for $1 each. See the green leaves? That's good enough to get the green half price discount.
I bought this Crown Essex Capri Ironstone plate for $1. It's actually blue, but the lady included it with the green stuff. Okay by me.
This J&G Meakin platter was $1.50. For some reason it's my favourite find. I just think that, while it's vintage, it has a modern appeal. I could see serving sushi on it. And you know how I like my sushi.
I have more green finds to show next week.
Have you found any thrifty goodness lately?
