Thrift Report: Long Distance Edition


My mom knows that I'm a sucker for old Cosco shelves and she called me on Sunday because she found some for only $10! Someone in my antique mall was recently selling some (spray painted white) for $60. Yikes!


I want them for our house but the spot where I want to put them is 33" wide and Cosco shelves are 36", sadly. I already have some Cosco shelves in my booth marked "not for sale" because I hope someday we'll have a larger house where they will fit... Not sure what I will do with these new ones yet since I don't have room in my booth OR house for them. They might go into the garage for storage for a little while!

I recently stocked 2 sets of sugar/flour canisters and they sold immediately, so I'm definitely on the hunt for more canisters. Luckily, I saw that the store where my mom was shopping had these in stock (they post photos to their Facebook page) and I asked her to scoop them up for me. They are sooo cute - can't wait to add them to the booth!



Thanks Mom for shopping for me and sending me photos! She'll be down next week to attend Blissdom - can't wait to see her and get my goodies! :-)

  7. I am thinking those blue canisters were from the Stanley Hostess catalog.

    I have never seen them in any other color than this glorious turquoise.

    And they seemed to have held up really well too.

  8. Those canisters are super cute. I've done away with having canisters on my counter, because I never ever cook, but if I found those I might have to reconsider.
