Thrifty finds

As much as thrifting was meh in Maine I managed to score some things.....

Like these!


Now I always find it funny how people buy souvenirs on trips and then eventually dump then at the Goodwill...The cashier found it pretty ironic that I would buy souvenirs from Canada in Maine, being from Canada.

Let's just say that our hosts didn't find the same beauty in those than I did.

And those heart stopping beauties...

Brand new, still in their original box, still in their cellophane....

Really large burnt orange tappers

Totally NEW!

I was really proud to show them off to my Dad! He actually gasped!
I guess they were a bit too much for him.

Then I showed them to Dan...And I just got a YIKES!
I answered: They are for the dining room, you're always complaining that we need a pop of color!
Here it is!

Now I just need to find some candlesticks to fit those!

Gotta go! Masterchef is beginning and they will start to fight with sea urchins...

Sleep tight :)

Yeah, I never waste money on souvenirs when I am vacationing, usually always so tacky & they just wind up in a box somewhere & then in the trash or at the thrifts. However, I have no problem paying for other peoples souvenirs they've deemed tacky, dumped in a box & donated to the thrifts.
