Thrifty and Vintage Thursday




and

vintage thingies thursday










This is a little pink treasure box from
a purchase a couple of weeks ago.

It had a price tag of $15.00 on the vintage jewelry box.
The little baggy of jewelery was markied $5.00
And the 'mink' stole collar with pearls, $2.00.

Not bad prices....

But wait!!!!



Let's see what's inside...

OOOH.

Aaaawe.......
mmmm......

OK. Now let's see hat all the oohing was about.


Some more watches!!

Suppose i will have to post those on Three or More Tuesday.
Hope someone does not challenge to make something from them. =0))


A bunch of miscellaneous....treasures.



And what about the little blue baggy you say??

hmmm. Quite a pile of... what??


Of this!!
Vintage pins, and earrings!
Aren't they wonderful??

All together were like 19 pairs of earrings,
15 watches or parts....
6 rings....
4 pins,
12 buttons....
1 beautiful pink jewelry case,

and a whole pile of miscellaneous.

OK, that was the vintage, now for the thrifty.
The sale guy was asking $22.00 for all of that.
A bit out of my price range.

But by the time we got done:

My price: $5.00!!!!

Pretty Thrifty Vintage stuff (I mean treasures)
don't you think??

Blessings and happy Thursday!!

I saw that pink jewelry box and could immediately see and feel and even smell the one I had as a kid! I think it was my mothers and then I got it. How cool. Thanks for the flashback.
