I guess you might say that I have been spoiled by shopping at thrift stores and yard sales.
I'm not embarrassed to wear clothes from thrift stores. In fact, I'm proud that I can get good clothes without paying the high prices in stores. I just bought some sweaters at the thrift store. They are very pretty and like new condition. If I had bought them new at the store, I would hate to think what I would have paid for them. I only paid 25 cents each!
I also bought some more milk glass. The white plates are Pyrex, Anchor Hocking and Corning.
I think the milk glass would be very pretty to display at Christmas. I could put floral displays, candy or fruit in them. I love milk glass! I only paid 25 cents each for these also.
Here is a close up of the large plate. I think the edge is so pretty. It looks like little tulips on the border. These plates could be used to put candy or cookies in at Christmas and given as gifts. The plates could be part of the gift.
Do you do much thrift shopping? Do you save money by buying second hand clothes?
I don't think it's anything to be ashamed of. I know some people who would never buy clothes at yard sales and thrift stores. Why pay $20 or more for a pair of jeans when you can get them for $1 or less. I'm proud that I save money by shopping wisely.
