Wimberley Finds... for Thrifty Thursday...

I thought Thrifty Thursday would be the perfect place to show you what I found while shopping Wimberley Market Days with Candy on Saturday.

Candy and I seldom desire the same treasure... it's not that our tastes are that different... we just always seem to be looking for different items when we're together... however, this Saturday... I beat her to these vintage silk millinery violets... just $2 a bunch! Sorry Candy!

Then I found these adorable S & P shakers. Funny thing was, Candy already owns them, though the slightly taller version... along with the complete set of stoneware... Good thing we don't go for the same treasures huh? I probably won't use them for S & P... just to decorate... they're so cute!
I also found these candle sticks... $5 for the set... boy were they heavy. I couldn't believe the price. The lady told me she bought them at an estate sale and she wasn't sure whether or not they were silver... hummmm...
A little Wright's Silver Polish and volia'!
Yep... they are silver... beautiful vintage silver candlesticks... a very good thing!
Then last but not least... I fell in love with this...
A beautiful pillow made from vintage silks and adorned with vintage pearls.
A thrifty treasure for sure... handmade... vintage silk... only $20.

So there you have it, as promised. My beautiful vintage, thrifty finds... found while shopping Saturday at Wimberley Market Days with Candy... Wish ya'll were there.

Come on over and visit, down here in French Lique...

I'm afraid it wouldn't be a good thing for you and I to try and shop together...we seem to zero in on the same things. I go weak kneed over millinery flowers and those are beautiful!

Those salt and pepper shakers look tiny. I thought they were buttons at first. Beautiful candlesticks!I'm going to an antiques faire under a freeway in Sacramento Sunday. Hope I'm as lucky as you!

Wonderful treasures! I'm in love with the candlesticks and the sweet S&P shakers. I never seem to have much luck at our local shops - most are more junk than "finds" and priced just the opposite.

Great finds, Dixie. How is Blue Hills going? I'll have to get some pics of my Round Top stuff but I got a wonderful grandfather clock for $65!!! It's not old but I love the shape of it AND the price. Wimberly is so much fun - it's like a little Shanty Town chocked full of hidden treasures. Maybe we'll meet there someday. Wouldn't a scavenger hunt there be a fun thing to do??? :) Nancy

You cleaned up! Those candlesticks were heavy, so you had to KNOW that they were silver. I cannot believe the price.
