Thrifty Friday

I do love wandering the aisles of the junk stores around here.  Lately a new one has opened up and they are really a true 'thrift' store. Not selling items to make money.  Just to get rid of them.  This is what I bought the other day.
 A nice jewelry box.  It could use a little sprucing up.  We'll see what happens.  I originally thought I might give it to E.  But selfishness took over.  I really do need a place to hang my necklaces.
 I like the etching on the glass and the nice metal handles.
 This center section for the earrings and rings actually pulls out.
At a different thrift store, I found one of our plates!  For $2.00.  They are from the 50's or so and I originally put the set together off Ebay.  That was when they were reasonable.  Around here, one more dinner plate is a good thing!

If you think E wants or needs a jewelry box, I have 2 I could donate. One is flat with lots of little division and the other kinda is like this one only a bit younger. Let me know, it doesn't have to be for a birthday or Christmas...
