I'm not sure these things would be considered Vintage, but it was my Good Will score for last week. So many times lately when I visit the thrift stores, they are truly lacking, and Good Will is certainly changing their way of selling. Our Good Will stores are marketing more and more new items. Which makes me wonder, what has happened to all the wonderful treasures they used to pass along to the normal thrift store shopper? Are they selling them online or on ebay??
A couple of weeks ago I came across three really pretty pieces of stemware. I looked them over, put them in my cart, but after thinking about them I put them back, as I knew it would be hard to match these little gems to find a fourth glass.
Last Friday I was shopping with my daughter in an Antique shop and guess what I found! Yep, these same glasses. Only there was a pretty big difference. The glasses at Good Will were priced at -
and the stemware in the Antique shop were priced at $7.00 each. Again I passed on these glasses.
Not to be dismayed, the next day I went back to the Good Will, thinking that I certainly would not find these little beauties again. But I immediately found two of the glasses high on the top shelf. In my mind I could not imagine someone just buying one and leaving the other two. So I searched and looked, but could not find the third glass. So I walked around in the Good Will, holding the two glasses in my hand. Before I went to check out, I walked back over to housewares and looked again. And there it was! Stuck behind a vase on the top shelf. Yay!! Score! If I ever get back to the Antique shop, I will shell out the $7 to add to these very pretty glasses.
