Toledo Thrift Store










I went to a off the beaten path thrift store while in Toledo Thursday and found a few objects I can work with to display.... This store was so packed that you have to climb and crawl to get to a few things but if you want a bargain.... hummm... I found this handled pretty silver tray all tarnished with just the right patina... little glass cloche.... vintage little coin purse.... Rachel Ashwell tassel.... Towel or post card holder.... and a silver heart letter weight.... Oh, I so love the hunt when stopping in a store of this kind.... I look at objects and think ...what can I do with this or how can I use this in a different way... It's what a junker loves to do... This little junking trip was a grand total cost of $22.00 for everything...... Keeps me happy with the little changes and new objects to look at and tuck in to make my vignettes look somewhat different.....

Hi Marietta!

What fabulous finds! And in TOLEDO! Can you divulge where it is in Tol so I can pay it a visit the next time I am visiting my brother up there? You can email me if you'd like. My visits there when I see my brother and my mom now in the nursing home are somewhat depressing if I can't spend a day with my dear friend Cindy. It would give me somewhere to go for fun! But if you'd rather not say where it is I understand. Or maybe we could plan to meet sometime and go there together! What fun we'd have!! Think about it.

Big hugs, Sherry

Have a great day,
Aimee

I just bought that same EXACT silver tray last week. I walked my laptop over to the tray to compare ours and it's the same tray! I'm going to make mine into a kitchen chalkboard and sell it on etsy. I'll have it on my blog when I finish it.
