This is the last edition of Rhoda's Today's Thrifty Treasures until the Spring. I will miss seeing everyone's weekly FINDS and look forward to posting more next Spring. Be sure to stop over at Rhoda's Southern Hospitality Blog to see more!
Last Friday I found 3 garage sales to visit and only bought a few items at one, spending a total of $12. $8.75 of that was for 7 ziplock bags of assorted jewelry. I didn't open any of the bags at the sale, but saw "glimmers of hope" amongst the contents of a few of the bags. When I got home, straight to the table I went and opened every bag.
After tossing out some really cheap plastic beads and such, I ended up with this mound of goodies:
I took away the wooden beads and look at all the assorted pieces, some with real "GLIMMER and SHINE":
Surprises were in store! There were 2 Rhinestone brooches each marked WEISS on the back!!! YIPPEE!!!
These exquisite golden topaz clip on earrings were also mark WEISS!!! Double YIPPEE!!!
Another pair of cute little clip-ons had the marking TRIFARI, with the little CROWN--WOWWEE!!!
And FINALLY: This last pair of Rhinestone Clip-on Earrings--a few of their stones do exhibit a bit of yellowing maybe due to the glue, but they will still look great on display in my curio cabinet. They were marked EISENBERG ICE!!! TRIPLE YIPPEE!!!
So I will miss Rhoda's weekly event over the next few months, but please dear visitors, drop in now and then to see what I have been doing.
I'd love to read your thoughts on my ziplock bag discoveries, so please leave a comment if you feel so inclined.
See you next Spring, Today's Thrifty Treasures!
