This past Friday, my friend Sandy Erdman came to Red Wing to visit. We had such a fun day! Tea at Wisteria Twig and a thrift store adventure. I found some of the above items when I was with her and some while I was out today. I am so excited to share my finds with you. Enjoy!

Have you found any thrift store or antique shop treasures lately? I’d love to hear about them!

    I am spending all my money now on merchandise for the store as we are getting close to all the holidays and need quite a bit of stuff also paying general bills(food, electricity, internet, telephone, ads and more for Sandy’s Sweet Nothings(c)as I spent the loot on Friday so thrift shopping for a bit is out of the question no matter how much I may want to go or I ask..do I really need it? It’s fun, but as you know I like to find items to go with the aprons in excellent condition.

      I loved some of the dishes you found! Very “Provence” with their bright yellow and blue! 🙂
