Today’s Thrifty Treasures – Hen on Nest Tureen, et cetera

As I mentioned in last week’s post, on Friday May 29 I went to drop off a few items at the consignment shop, then went around the large store looking for bargains. One find was shared in last week’s post, Here are more great buys:

A white ceramic soup tureen for $2.13. The plastic ladle is missing, but at that price I couldn’t leave it.
The piece is all-white except for a bit of red and yellow above and below the hen’s beak

The lid is the chicken and the tureen itself is like an oval woven basket.I also found a set of three 100% cotton kitchen towels for $3.25. One is solid, one striped and dotted, and one patterned with leaves.

Also catching my eye was a large hat box for $3.75. It is an ample 14" diameter x 6.25" tall. I’ll use it for storing small linens.

Thanks for your visit, and do come again soon. I would love to read your comment.
Please visit Rhoda at Southern Hospitality for more thrifty treasures.
