The first stop as always was Treasure Mart:
an Ann Arbor haunt and favorite for scavengers and treasure hunters.
(visit them at http://www.treasuremart.com).
A consignment shop with an ever changing supply of goods.
Almost always priced to move.
Todays finds for me:
Love all items.
I passed by :
a great cast iron sink sitting outside ($45.00)
an arts and crafts carved mahogany chair in need of new upholstery ($40.00)
3 charming sets of miniature place holder stands in porcelain flowers ($5.00 per set)
a silverplated clam shell of app. 15" dia. that opens up so that you can serve from
both sides of the clam at $20.00 - I should have bought that one for myself.
The treasures await you. A great time to be there is about 10am when
people do drop offs and the first load from pick-ups arrive.
2nd stop: Salvation Army.
That is right..............usually a quick stop. A bit overwhelming with the
mass of clothing but I have found finds here.
A helpful hint:
no website link for Salvation Army
did you know that you can search your heart out and help charity by shopping shopgoodwill.com http://www.shopgoodwill.com?
All Goodwill stores stash away the best goodies and list them online -
that way you get a good bargain and they get more money for the items
by having an auction site.
Todays cache - one lovely piece of finished needlepoint with scattered flowers.
Needlepoint #2 for the day.
A half day passed quickly.
Time for pictures & posting.
As always, thanks for looking,
