Default Thrifting goodies continue

The small earrings ( mop and 925) were found about 10 days ago. Just the peace sign about the same time, got that from my friend with the thrift shop, I think $ 5.00 The flower earrings and silver disc was on my Alabama trip. Both sterling. $2.00 The big basketball and hoop and the neck chain and ring were today's finds less than $3.00. I wasn't sure about the ring but I scratched it inside, no change in color and ran the detector over it at it rang in at 79-80 on the AT PRO. So I'm pretty sure it's silver. Good couple weeks..

Nice ! Thrift stores "are like a box of chocolates " You just never know what you are going to find . A great place for those older hard to find CD's and other things . Sometimes you see family pictures and you wonder how they ever got there . I've seen such things at garage sales also . Keep having fun and Merry Christmas to you and yours !
