Thrifty in Port Colborne



I didn't set out to buy milk glass, in fact, the 'collection' is getting out of control...but I couldn't help myself.  There was an entire shelf of milk glass in the Port Colborne Salvation Army, and I bought these few pieces.  gems!
I added them to the top shelf in our office.
The smooth blue decanter looks great with the diamond textured decanter I picked up a while ago
and finally, this tin...It says "Gray Dunn Biscuit Manufacturers, Product of Scotland"...I adore it! Even though I have no use for it at the moment I couldn't say no.

    Fantastic finds! I used to live in Welland, and there sure are some great thrift finds in the area.

  8. SO jealous of your milk glass collection. I've been wanting to pick up a few milk glass pieces for a while (a friend mixed various milk glass vases as centerpieces for her wedding last summer), but haven't stumbled across anything at the right price yet!
