Rednesday aka Wednesday!

OK Ladies and Gentlemen I have been thrifting!!  There isn't much to be had in this little one-horse town we currently call home but just 65 miles west of us is the big city of Tucson.  On Saturday, a girlfriend and I went thrifting all day. : )  We hit 2 estate sales and 5 thrift stores.  I am pleased to present to you for Rednesday my best find of the day (don't you here the drum roll)...


Do you see it?  The little red school house aka a vintage cookie jar!!

It has no nicks or scratches.  If you see a little bit of white on the red roof that is from the white tape that was used to tape the top to the bottom.  The little bell even works!  I am thrilled with this purchase.  And now for the moment you have all been waiting for.....the price.....$5.00!!!  I know, I know, highway robbery. : )

Head on over to Sue's blog  for more great red treasures at It's a Very Cherry World.

I love the schoolhouse find, a gal after my own heart. What kind of manufacturing mark does it have? I would be interested to learn.

That's such a sweet little cookie jar! I bet you had so much fun thrifting all day. It sounds like the perfect day to me! I can't stop scrolling back and looking at those picnic baskets, over and over again. They look so pretty with the roosters and oil lamp on them. Just perfect!
Happy REdnesday,
Carol
