Thrift Store Finds in NC

I managed to bring back a few things I found 
thrift shopping in North Carolina in October.  
  Here they are: 2 volumes of Encyclopedia 
Britannica for 10 cents each
2 small blue&white plates for 25 cents each.
 16-piece set of glass Christmas dishes for $5.00.
Embossed Christmas tree with holly border.
 4 green lidded enamel soup/chili pots for
 25 cents each.
 4 wreaths for 25 cents each.
 Here's where I put them until I use them for
a project. A vignette on top of the fridge.
The wooden turkey and vintage scale were
thrift finds from previous years.
 6 white silk lampshades (for my chandelier)
 for 25 cents each.
  1 white ginger jar lamp for 75 cents.
6 green flower pot napkin rings for $1.00
2 natural flower pot napkin rings for 25 cents 
(I have 6 matching ones here)
1 Valentine mug-25 cents.
 A pretty blue & white hand crocheted afghan for $1.00.
One in fall colors for $1.00 too.
A large wire basket for 25 cents.
4 (8x10) wood frames for 25 cents each.
I'm using one here to frame a printable.

These were from Pathways Thrift Store
 in Sylva, NC. It benefits The Center
For Independent Living.

and more into our small red convertible.
