Thirfty Thursday: Jackpot!

Edwin M. Knowles China Co.
Made in U.S.A.

It was a good day at Salvation know how I am about bowls!
I am just lovin' this yellowed and crazed crackly bowl, it just makes me smile!

It was $6 to begin with, but anything dated more than two weeks old in their "collectibles showcase" is 20% off, so I paid $4.80. I didn't know that about the dates and the discount, so now I will be a wiser shopper.

I found a couple more things, but I can't show you because they're going to be gifts! I'll show you after they've been given to the recipients. I just KNOW that they're going to love my finds!
(Now, if I just remember where I put them when it's time to do the wrapping!)

Tomorrow? Another Vintage Children's Book for

That bowl is fruitylicious! And I sure am glad that I'm not the only one who forgets where she puts gifts that she buys WAY in advance of Christmas, and in fact didn't find one of the things until 6 months later!
