Good Things Come To Those Who Wait

While out shopping a couple weeks ago, I stopped by Anthropologie.   Okay, I LOVE this store.  Seriously, it is a feast for the senses.  Beautiful clothes, candles, dishes and so much more.  All with beautiful price tags.

I wanted this Butter Bell Crock that they had for sale.   I passed it up that day but just kept thinking what a great way this would be to store my butter.   It is not for sale online but I did find it on another site HERE.
Anthropologie price $18.  Other website price $19.95

I liked it but not enough to spend almost $20 on one.    A few weeks later, while dropping off some things at a local thrift store, I found one...for THREE DOLLARS AND FIFTY CENTS.  Joy!

This is the one I found!

Then a couple weeks later while shopping for some things for my daughter's Halloween costume I found something else I'd been wanting.

 A while back I went to a Pampered Chef party and loved this divided dish.

The holder is $15 and then the two little square bowls that fit inside are an additional $16.   I liked it but not that much.

Behold what I found at Goodwill for THREE DOLLARS!  Hmmm - seeing a pattern here with the three dollar thing.

AND I like it better than the new stainless steel looking one.

Oh, I can't wait to tell you about my coffee table that Hubby re-finished.  But that is for another time.  

Good things come to those who wait -that's what I learned this week!  For more lessons learned this week head on over to Musings of a Housewife

What great finds. I have those Pampered Chef dishes and love them. Got them for free when I had a party - I would not have paid that $$ for them either. I'll have to frequent my goodwill/thrift stores more often.
Thanks for sharing!

I love thrift store finds! I'm looking for a couple things for my kitchen and can't wait to go on a hunt!!

But...that never happens to me! I pass it up (the thing I love) and wait for a sale or something, and then they're all just gone!

I did find some goodies when I went to the thrift store the other day for the first time, though!

My luck is that I wait too long for something to be marked down on clearance and someone else buys it!
(The peanuts and candy corn, btw, delish!)

LOL! I have that pampered chef dish. I don't use it enough tho. And I didn't have much luck with the butter crock. My butter kept falling out. Let me know if it works for you.
