Thrifted for $7



I got these Corelle dishes—5 bowls, 8 small plates, 5 medium plates and 6 large plates for $5. Very 1970s design.


I also got this cool spatula and salt and pepper shakers for $1.


And I got four cds for $1. Disney’s Beauty and the Beast soundtrack and The Bravery were two cds I knew I would like, so I was quite happy to buy both of them.

I was disappointed in the Movie Hits cd. I got it mainly because of “Everything I Do, I Do it for You,” because I remember liking that song. But when I listened to it again, I didn’t like it as much.

This is My Song set of cds had three cds in it (and missing the one disc) that were older songs—I think all before 1970. There were a lot of songs I didn’t know, but some I did know and like. So there were some happy surprises in there.

Embroidery Floss


I found a whole bunch of embroidery floss at an estate sale. It was something I was sort of on the lookout for since I made my first (and so far only) cross stitching project. I would like to do more cross stitching…I just haven’t gotten to it. I bought two smaller cases with some blues and silkier floss for myself for $3.50.

And I got six large cases of embroidery floss for $5 each—so $30 total. But the plan is to split this with two friends, so it’ll only cost $10 a piece. I thought it was a pretty good deal (and so beautifully organized).
