I had to get my Thrift Fix today so the Girlfriend and I went out to check the traps. Didn't find anything HUGE but I found a few useful vintage items. Most of the stores (we hit the six closest to home) seem to be thin on inventory. Weird. I can't think of a reason why this might be. Coincidence I guess. I hope.
A mere $3 brought this cheese and cracker serving dish home. Looks like it's
never been used! Items like these really set the "Look" when you have a party or
just guests. It's awesome when these are "as new"! You might find something like
this a Crate and Barrel or ::shivers:: Ikea, but it ain't gonna cost $3!
I can just remember going to parties with my parents when I was little in the mid
seventies and seeing items like these being used circa "current". Wow, I had no
idea that I'd be driving all around town trying to recreate their lifestyle! I'm just
happy that (apparently) a lot of people bought or received these and never used
Can I interest you in some cheese and crackers?
...no? Then how about a Cordial?
This little Cordial Caddie was $4. Another bargain! And useful too. A good host
has to be able to bring the libations to his (or her) people, doing it efficiently just
makes good sense! I wish I had two of these. But then, even at a good size party
you won't get too many Cordial Customers. Thanfully I have a caddie or two that
can carry bottles of beer!
Mmmmm....don't that look tasty and refreshing? It'll make you giggle a little too, if
you are in the right mood. My current favorite is Tuaca. It's very smooth and
sweet with taste of Carmel. It's also got a pretty good kick with 35% alcohol /
