Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,

    Well I hit the jack pot today at the swap meet, and I couldn't wait till my Saturday treasure hunt post to show you all my treasures...

Here is a picture of everything I found today...

The pink and reds I found at one stall, and when I asked how much the lady wanted she said $40.00 for all of them. I decided that I didn't want to spend that much, so I walked away. As I was walking around at other booths I just couldn't get those Pyrex out of my mind. I asked Mr Joyful Thrifter if I could offer her $20.00, and he said sure! I went back and she said no to my $20.00 offer, and said she would take $30.00. I then counter offered her with $25.00, and she said she had to ask her mother in law. As I was waiting for her to finish her phone call another lady walks up to offer her the same $25.00, and I assured her that I already placed that offer. She was a little upset that I had swooped in on her treasures, but I was so glad to have gotten there first. The stall owner could not get a hold of her mother in law so she just said fine just take them for $25.00. 

Here are some close ups of my new treasures...

Oh happy happy heart!!! They are so pretty.
