The thrifty treasure that almost got away!

So, I'm out thriftin' last week and spot a sweet, little bread box.  
Very different, really cute.

But I hesitate and hesitate, and in the end I decided I liked something else and off I went to the very friendly cashier.

Then I go home.
Then I think, maybe I should have bought it after all....hmm.
I'm thinking that I am probably not the only thrifter out there that has had such thoughts and dilemma!!!??

Then I, that would look great in my kitchen back home (home is Ontario-we head back next month).
Then I think....I think too much!  giggle, giggle

So a week later I go back to see if it's still there.
No is!
This baby has my name on it and it is coming home with me!

 So, back to the friendly cashier again.  By now they must think I am their BFF.  ;)
Show my very stylish daughter my newest treasure.
She loves it sooooo much and apparently I rock!  

I knew I did good.
I paid $4.50 at the Thrift Store.
When I get home next month, I will take pics of where it will grace my newly renovated kitchen.


I will be showing off my thrifty treasure at these parties

*Sunday Favorites


  1. I LOVE it.

    In this little duplex where we now live, I don't have enough cupboard space to HIDE a loaf of bread when my pantry is well stocked. Hmmmmm - - - perhaps I need to keep MY eyes open for a bread box!

    Good find!

  2. What a beautiful addition to your kitchen. I would have bought it if I got there before

  3. I love your bread and cake box - very different! I can't wait to see your home when you get back to it. I imagine you are pretty excited to get all settled in again! Have a great weekend!

  4. Sweet! Love it that it was still there waiting for you a week later, no such luck for me, it's now or never ;)

  5. You got lucky! I can't tell you how many times I've oscillated on buying something cool....gone home, realized I really DID want it....only to find it gone when I returned! (like 99% of the time) I love your new cake/bread box! Can't wait to see where you put it. Vanna

  6. So sweet it was still there just waiting for mama to go pick her up. I love this kind of things and this one is so cute, love what says: Bread and Cakes. I hope you follow me back, I'd be honoured to be in your list Diane, I love what you do.

  7. Hi Diane...

    Ohhh...I love your "Bread and Cake" holder! It's soooo very vintage cool! I can't believe that you got it for a mere $4.50...great bargain, my friend! I'm glad that it was still there when you went back for it! I can't tell you how many times that I've done the same thing...but the story didn't have as nice of an ending!

    Well my friend, thank you so much for sharing your sweet thrifting treasure find with us for the Sunday Favorites repost party this week! Such a treat!

    Warmest spring wishes,
