~Bargain Time~

The updating is at a slower pace these days at the Shecky Shack (posts to come), so having a little break to check out some of the local consignment/resale stores in the area was the way to go for the day. Always looking for a bargain, Mrs. Shecky found them.

The Mirror

When Mrs. Shecky saw the mirror in a not so perfect condition, she took it right off the wall. She thinks it looks perfect. So was the price at $11.00.

The Teapot

Everyone knows how much Mrs. Shecky loves a teapot. Right? Right. $3.99

Of course, Mrs. Shecky didn’t need these, but, couldn’t get over the, again, $3.99 price tag for ALL of them. How lucky was that bargain?! Lucky. She snatched these up, bagged them, and walked right out of the shop with them. *Happiness*

Because she like baskets for that organic look, this was bought for her camera cords *she thinks*. $1.99. Couldn’t pass that up either. There is always a good use for a basket and this was in good shape and a good price.

The Basket

The Fiesta mugs, plates, creamer & sugar, salt and pepper shakers, and platter was the most expensive, being highly collectible with certain colors. Just under ten bucks.

This is the favorite of the day. The Samovar. It still needs a cord but using it as a vase will be perfect. Mrs. Shecky wonders who owned it and what they talked about over their cups of tea. $7.99 and not a crack on it.

Bargains can still be found at resale businesses. Somehow the thought of how they exist still gets to Mrs. Shecky’s thoughts, but she is happy to keep exploring for new found treasures. Bargains are everywhere and the quality of the vintage is ever lasting, and for Mrs. Shecky, life goes on through these items. It is a Whatsoever Is Lovely moment. Hope you enjoy.

Til the next excursion,

  2. My fave is the samovar!

    1. I was surprised how perfect it is. I think I’ll see if an electrician can help me out with a cord. 😊

    Hey, Mrs. Shecky, Anita and I have been looking for some shorter wine glasses at reasonable prices. I’ll give you $5.99 for the set. That’s a 50% profit! Just pack ’em good for the mail. πŸ˜‚

    1. Ha ha… it sure was a deal! I will keep an eye out for you πŸ˜‰
