Welcome back to Thrifty Treasures Thursday, this is Post #4. I am so happy you are here and can’t wait to share with you my latest thrifty finds. I will share what I found, where I found it, how much I spent and what I plan to do with what it.
In case you missed it -here is a link to last week’s post.
I use to teach ceramic classes many years ago. I had my own kiln and studio. Some of the items I picked up and will show you today are a definite throwback to those days.
Check out this covered pie dish. This one is still in fabulous condition and they are becoming popular again. I staged itwith the wood cutting board and some plastic pumpkins. The hay bales are such a fun background. I paid $3.00 for the covered pie dish, one dollar each for cutting board and pumpkins (they are not for sale, just for staging). I have the covered pie dish up for sale for $15.00
This Ceramic Poinsettia Christmas Tree weighs six (6) pounds in it’s finished state. It was a delicate process to pour the slip (wet compound) into the mold and time it just right to ensure a complete full tree came out of the mold in one piece. This one is 15” in height and 11” wide across bottom. It is painted red, green, yellow and a touch of gold. I think it is a wonderful, vintage (1980s) holiday decor piece and definitely collectible.
I paid $5.00 for it at a yard sale and will put it up for sale. I haven’t determined what a fair selling price is. What do you think? Let me know in the comments.
Oh yes another Ceramic Christmas Tree – this one is tall and slender and painted white with gold trim – amazingly all the bulbs and birds are still on it (they do come out of the holes). I found this one at the same yard sale as the Poinsettia Tree, also paid $5.00 for it. I hope to sell this one for $50.00
When I found this harvest gold- wax paper/aluminum foil/paper towel holder, there was no hesitation in paying the $5.00 at a garage sale. I love to talk to seniors when they have garage sales. The lovely lady enjoyed explaining to me what it was and how to use it. I have a similar one in my RV – its a space saver and a great conversation piece. It is on my site for sale for $15.00
That wraps up this Thrifty Treasures Thursday.
