Bargains Galore!

So yesterday Miss B. and I went to the Second Chance Thrift Shop in Pepack/Gladstone, NJ, at the previous urging of the Mom. One of her blogging friends from the area recommended it. Well, did we ever hit the jackpot! Turns out it was 75% off day at the store as it was getting ready to close up for the summer. The goal, apparently, was to try and clear out as much stock as possible to make room for new thrift finds in the fall. We did our best, arriving just before closing at 4pm. For a whopping $39 we got: 1) a victorian looking mirror and washbasin stand (with wash basin-- all its missing is a pitcher!), 2) a Fenton Milk Glass footed "banana boat" for the Mom (and thanks to the Mom for identifying it!), 3) an Avon milk glass covered jar, 4) a 8 piece set of transferware salad plates from the Soho Pottery in England (which, according to internet research were made sometime between 1913-1930), 5) a pair of plain white Limoges candlesticks (one is has a tiny chip that's been repaired, but they still look great), 6) a vintage brown riding helmet and 7) a beany baby swan (Miss B.'s choice).

Pictures to follow once I get a new CompactFlash card for the ye old Nikon!

Why has the Mom not told *me* about this place?! Me, me, me! ;-)

Or did she? Hmmm. In any event...road trip!
