Recent Thrifty Purchases

Tuesday, November 18, 2014

Last weekend, the littlest member of our family turned 1. I still can't quite fathom how quickly that last year seemed to go; it sounds so cliche but it really seems like only yesterday he entered the big wide world.

My Mum is with me, visiting from the UK and together we went in search of serving plates for the little one's birthday celebrations.  Neither of us saw the point in buying new when there are plenty of lovely serving platters, bowls and plates that can be found in Op Shops secondhand.

We spent all of $23 and took home; a glass leaf serving plate, three glass bowls (two matching), a huge ceramic serving plate and a set of 6 fabulous pineapple dessert bowls.

The weekend prior to the little fella's first birthday also happened to another family celebration, giving me good reason to wear my new-to-me fancy heels purchased from Salvos earlier in the month.

With my shoes, I wore a dress my Dad picked out for me (go Dad!) all the way from Sunny Spain.

What thrifty purchases have you come home with lately?
