(Missouri Michael, who refused to turn around, already sniffing out deals!)
(Patricia scouting out finds with her newly thrifted opera glasses!)Well I could hardly wait to show you my first prize catch. I finally got the six foot Aluminum Christmas tree I've always wanted! I had dreamed all year of a six foot tree we saw last Christmas that was $200. I made up my mind that I was going to save my money and if that if by some miracle the tree was still there it was going to be mine! Well we get to the antique mall and the tree I had dreamed about... wasn't there.
(P.S. I had never seen a GREEN Aluminum tree but at $250, it was too green for me.)
When I got it back to my Aunts house we sorted the branches I found that my hunch was correct. The tree had been put together wrong, and when done correctly it filled out and looked much better!
I was so lucky, even the original instructions were in the box!
We all came away with treasures, it was a fun afternoon of traveling and smart-assery! I picked up a few other neat things.
(A really cool, and working gold plate thermometer. $2.00)
(A trio of Tupperware tumblers! I can never have to many of these. $0.98.)
(I have no idea why this is upside down, but a neat Missouri travel plate for $0.50.)Two Pyrex Thrifter Sisters have had me green with envy and pining to make my vintage ornament collection bigger, so I did. Haha I found one single shiny bright that a paid a whole $0.25 for!
All in all some great finds! We had lots of fun running around with Missouri Michael, and I'm SO thrilled I finally got a tree.
Hope you all have a happy Friday!
