Picnic time is here...

Does anyone other than me remember this guy?

Remember how his favorite thing to do was steal picnic baskets?
 Well, I didn't steal a basket but I got a pretty good deal today at the thrift shop!

It was $14 which is more than I wanted to pay but it was like new condition. The flatware and cutting board were sealed in original packaging.

When I saw it I flashed back to my childhood cartoon days. Mr. Vintage S and the grands will get lots of use out of this.
I found a few other things that had to come home with me as well.

I am now the proud owner of a lifetime collection of faux grapes. These were ten clusters to a bag for $4.
I had just priced them at Hobby Lobby for $2.99 a cluster. I don't know what I'll use them for but couldn't pass them up. (It's a sickness I have.)
The sea urchin and little votive holder were both one dollar each. 

I know this is an odd collection of junk,  really unique stuff, but one just never knows what one will find when on a thrifting adventure. It's all about "the hunt."

Happy hunting, and y'all come back.

  7. Hi Annette!
    that was a good price for the picnic basket! It looks brand new. I can totally relate to the "life time supply" of faux grapes! LOL. I do use them in table scapes and even in floral arrangements. Thank you for joining TTF! I hope you and yur family have a wonderful Easter!
