Thrifty Things Friday

For the last couple of years I had been on the lookout for an old scale. Last year when my daughter and I were in New Bern NC, we stopped in some junk shops and a couple of Antique stores. In one of the Antique shops, I finally found an old scale at a pretty reasonable price.

I've seen these old scales priced as high as $40 to $50. This one was marked $20, so we carried it home with us to Florida.

But a couple of weeks ago, when my hubby and I were in Hogansville, along with my pretty Pink cups and saucers I wrote about on my last post, my hubby found this great old scale.

For $10!! So yep, we now have a pair :-)

I found a really great scale at a hoarder's sale this weekend but she would not part with it (I was so disappointed). Glad you were able to find one and take it home with you, it's lovely.

Oh that is really funny! We actually bought a new scale like those to weigh our blueberries. Yours are just lovely!

Cool! I have been on the look out for one of these. My mom has a green one on her counter and I am trying to steal it. However she would notice right away!
