Thrift Store Treasures

For several weeks now, I’ve enjoyed visiting all the blogs who participate in Treasure Hunt Thursday at Blue Creek Home.  So for the first time, I’m joining in with a couple of goodies I found.

While browsing my favorite thrift store last week, I came across these silver pretties.  The bottom of them is open, so I’m sure they originally had some kind of insert.

I wish I could have found a set of four, but there were only two.  I couldn’t find any markings on either of them, so I don’t know who made them.  They’re probably silverplated.

I love the scalloped edges at the top.

Designs are embossed all around the holders.

Pyramids and palm trees can be seen in the design on the front.

Even the handle is decorated.

After leaving that thrift store, I decided to stop in at my favorite antique shop where I found these two glasses.

The top of the glasses are a smokey black color with a pretty silver scrolling design all around the glasses.

They are a perfect fit for the silver holders!

I can’t wait to plan a dinner for two using these!  I’ve been wanting to make a black and silver tablesetting, so this is a perfect excuse!

I’m so glad you stopped by!  Hope to see you again soon!

I am so glad that you joined Treasure Hunt Thursday this week! I would love for the party to grow so that you guys would get more visitors.
When I saw the glasses I immediately wondered if they could fit in the pretty silver holders - And then they did!! And, they are lovely.
Happy Fourth!

What terrific treasures you found! They certainly pair well with the glasses that you found. I too enjoy searching for fun finds and especially love when I come across a bargain.
