THRIFTING ~ Deal of the CENTURY!!!

Oh MY GOODNESS!!! I am so exicted to show you what I FOUND yesterday in my latest thrifting adventures! I just could NOT believe my eyes. And...to think, I almost didn't even DIG in to the pile of plates that this beauty was buried in! Best of all..(drum roll please)....it as was ONLY .99 cents!!! YES...that is correct. a whopping .99 cents!!!.
My new favorite place to shop is alway such a FUN and usually very fruitful place. It's my local St. Vincent dePaul just down the way in Westland. They do have many items that are a bit high for this resourceful, ever on the hunt for a deal, chick..but I have also found many goodies at just the right price too!
But I tell ya, this has to be the BEST FIND yet!
What a lovely Handpainted Plate that is 10 inches in diameter. As a rose painter, I truly do TREASURE these one of a kind handpainted plates. The time, detail and love that an artist must have to do this work, always amazes me! The roses in this plate are really to die for, don't you think?! Truly a work of ART and I cannot believe anyone would give it up..but I am glad that I FOUND it.

Now...I just have to find the right place to put it! I will try to remember to show you when I find that special place in my home!
Happy shopping!
Lorena

Hi Lorena!

I love your new plate! What a find! And you got it for a "steal", it's so wonderful to get something you love so much for that little.

I can't believe you were at the AA Art Fair too! We were there on Friday so we missed you by a day. It was so fabulous, my first time there. My girlfriend has not missed in 30 yrs! I was overwhelmed by the quality of the talent there. Well at least we didn't pass each other on the sidewalk Lorena!

Hope you've had a great summer!
Hugs, Sherry

You found a beautiful plate. I like shopping at thrift stores. You can find some real treasures in there and still afford to go to Starbucks afterwards : )
