I have been thrifty with my trips to the thrift shops, trying to bring a little less home while I work on the clutter that is already here. There are some things I just can’t leave behind if they are marked at a good price; like Wilton cake pans. I don’t bake molded cakes like these nor do I intend to. But I just can’t resist picking up a cake pan if the price is right.
So here I have a Pokeman pan and a football shaped pan. I really do hope I can find the time to list some of my Wilton cake pan collection on Ebay. If I sell some of what I have collected, then I won’t feel so guilty picking up the next priced-just-right pan. Right?
I thought that perhaps this cute little Santa and his reindeer was going to be on sale. He wasn’t. I’m glad I picked him up anyway. For 75 cents I think he will bring a lot of Christmas joy to our home next decorating season.
Here he is again showing off the silver-plate bowl I found.
This piece could use some polishing; however, I’m currently using it in its tarnished glory to hold mail and miscellaneous bits and pieces of paper clutter.
I really liked the shell-like design on the edge of this container. It is EPCA Bristol Silver by Poole. I have learned that EPCA stands for Electro Plated Copper Alloy. It is nickel silver that has been silver-plated. I like the weight and size of this piece and happily paid $1.75 for it.
I hope to join the parties at Flea Market Finds at Her Library Adventures, Apron Thrift Girl’s Thrift Share Monday, Knick of Time’s Knick of Time Tuesday, Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays at Coastal Charm, Thrifty Thursday at Tales from Bloggeritaville, Thrifty Things Friday at The Thrifty Groove, and The Penny Worthy Project at Hey, What’s for Dinner Mom?
