Random Thrifting Adventures... Looking for Salty






The other day I stopped at a thrift store on my way home from school to deliver a vast quantity of leftover lost and found from the school lost and found.  Kids.  Good grief.  How do they loose their pants?  Anyway... since I was there, I thought why not have a look?  Oh My Goodness!  Am I ever glad I did because I found these three beauties.  Sugar, flour and pepper Jadeite shakers.  Eep!  Squeal!  Now I just need to find the salt!  It reminds of a series of  tv ads from a bit ago where the salt content of some food was reduced and the little animated pepper shaker was crying while looking for his buddy, Salty.  I put a link to one with the sad Salty character.  But I digress.



 And a quick scrounge in the fabric and notions... zippers at 25 cents a pop and some really lovely vintage cotton.  It is a lovely weave and weight.  Happiness in a thrift store.  Linking up with Cindy for Random Thursday...
