Thrift Store Bonanza

It's been a while since I've been to a thrift store and I've been going through some serious withdrawl.  I finally made a trip yesterday and I think it was worth the wait.  Here are the goods...

1.  I got a set of 6 decorated glasses that will give a bar cart a serious lift.  Now I just need to stumble across a bar cart.
2.  The tray has the most fantastic hint of gold.  It's made of some type of metal and it's quite a hefty weight so it will definitely work for carrying hors d'oeuvres at all our parties (not me, of course:).  There are markings on the silver handles but even with my glasses on I can't read it.
3.  I have a big crush on birch trees and this watercolour is stunning.  The frame is a bit rickety but for $6.99 I think I can spring for a new frame.


With kelly green's popularity being at an all time high I"m surprised that anyone could part with these.  AND they're brand new.  Never been worn.

Reunited and it feels so good!!  I love you thrift store.
