Default Last 2 weeks thrifting

Well dang I had a good couple of weeks going here and there. I'm especially excited about the horseshoe ring even though I have to have it sized, that's never cheap. Been looking forever for one that wasn't going to break the bank. My friend had this and the blue( zircon?) at her shop and let me have them for both for $30 Considering how much they are "brand new" it was a steal. My husband and I met while playing this delightful sport lol. The blue one is so lovely and vintage just my speed. All the silver from different shops and flea markets. Oh horseshoe 14 Kt. with diamonds. And blue is 10 kt. I may have already posted the YES necklace, apologies if I did.

Nice line-up of pretties! Thirty bucks for the two rings was a steal! The last gold ring I bought was ten bucks. I held onto it for a few months, then put it in a local auction. Could've sold it outright for $30, or ebayed for $45, but no...after auction fees I broke dead even.

I tried my hand at it today! Since the snows here, you inspired me to get out to the salvation army and see what I could see. Got some super cheap silver! There was a little box with a bunch of junk rings and I saw this one. Less than a dollar! .925

Nice, see it's out there, just gotta look and "paw" through stuff. Keep after it you'll find more I'm sure.

Thanks everyone. I will be posting my finds every 2 weeks. Today I am hunting a 175 year old home. Although done before I will not let that bother me as we have had some heavy rains and we all know the possibilities are there to find stuff. I'll keep you posted if I find anything at all. Have a great day everyone !
