If you have been tuning in this week, you know and have seen some of the adventures with my girlfriends (affectionantley known as the Clematis Club) in Mentone, Alabama. If you missed, you can read back to through to Monday.
Today for Thrifty Thursday I thought I would take you shopping with us!
We visited one of my favorite Mentone antique shops, located in a two story grand old hotel, the antique store is called The White Elephant Antiques.
Each room is divided by the seller. Some have themes, some do not.
Here is a look at some of the things I saw:
Lots of jars & bottles:
Vintage Buttons for $1.00 a set
We'd like to thank our families who put up with our antics, we'd like to thank our therapist, we thank the academy for the nomination and for voting us most likely to poke fun at our own expense.
Oh! We found some old trophys and had some fun!
"High Mae" found a birdhouse she really liked:
I adored this cabinet with it's chippy paint charm. It would be precious in a kitchen to use for a second pantry, or in a bathroom or even a mud room:
It had it's orginal hardware and care with a decent price tag, although I am certain it could be talked down to even less!
I LOVEd these pottery plates. There were 6 and cost $12.00. They didn't match my kitchen.
It was this wooden framed piecethat made my heart flutter though.....
I can imagine it painted heirloom white. I would use chalkboard paint on the inner wooden piece. Cute! And for $45.00 not bad, though again, I think it could be talked down. I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY wanted that piece. But I walked away. You can't have it all. And I was trying to concerve funds and space in the van since we were already very cramped. :(
I cannot wait to see the treasure you found this week! Last week, we had close to 70 contributors to Thrifty Thursday! Thank you for linking up with your fun finds and creative ideas!
