A Good Day at the Thrift Shop

 Sometimes you just get lucky at thrift stores.  I found this old oil painting on Saturday for 19.99.

 It's big too.  It's 3'X2'.  I'm taking it to have it framed later today.  And yes, to answer a question in the comments, it is signed....Chappel.

 And I found this nice pottery plate and bowl for 59 cents!

 Great glass flower frogs for 99 cents each.

 The bowl inspired me to make hummus.

Perfect!

You must have a gem of a thrift shop. Ours doesn't have flower frogs. You have some great items.

You must have the best thrift shop in your area, I never find frogs in mine. You lucked out with three, and that seems to be a huge painting. Has the artist signed it? Even if not valuable it is always fun to know who painted it.

The picture is in the style of Hudson River school, mid 18th century movement started by Thomas Cole. It might be a second generation. Lovely picture. You have a great thrift store!

Happy Ostara Joyce :) Your hummus looks delicious, I could go for some olives right now! That painting is pretty wonderful! What a great find.

We have a thrift shop here (Illinois, but don't worry, I don't run with The Troll) where everything is 99cents. Mostly used clothing, of amazingly good quality, but dishes and such too. Every week it's different. Living on a very tiny income we would not survive (well, we'd survive but it wouldn't be as nice an existence) without this thrift store and the wonderful volunteers who work in it. LOVE the pottery dishes by the way!

Hummus and olives! That is my idea of heaven. Love the painting too.
