Thrift or Gift?

I went to the local MCC thrift store yesterday and hit the jackpot!

And I want to play a little game with you…Thrift or Gift…(bright flashing lights – jazz hands – confetti falling from the sky).  Doesn’t it sound fun?

Okay, I’m going to show you all the items I found at the thrift store and one item that’s not.  That item was a gift I received this week from a dear friend.  And YOU have to guess which were thrifted and which was gifted. (I’ll make up a fake price for the “gift” just to make it a little trickier!)

Here we go!

Item #1

Handmade afgan ($3.00)

Item #2

Ampersand bookend ($7.50)

Item #3

Glass tealight Christmas village. ($1)

Item #4

Children’s books (there are 4 more but they are in the sleeping baby’s room) $3

Item #5

Snowflake candle holder ($.20)

Item #6

Black-framed mirror ($10)

Item #7

Blue gravy boat ($1.50)

Item #5

Glass jar ($.50)

So what do ya think?  Which was a gift and not a thrift?!?

I’d love to hear your guesses.

  1. My guess is that either the tealight Christmas village or the black framed mirror is the gift. But now that I think about it, it could be the bookend. Hmmm. Either way, they’re all great! I love thrift stores! 🙂

  2. My guess would be the bookend or the snowflake candle holder thing…but I am terrible at all games like this! (2 truths and a lie kills me every time! haha)

  3. Although electric lighting has phased out candles in many parts of the world, candlesticks and candelabra are still used in some Western countries homes as a decorative element or to add atmosphere on special occasions. Before the proliferation of electricity services, candles were brought into the bedroom using chambersticks, which were shorter than ordinary candleholders and furnished with a wide pan to catch the wax drippings.:

    Many thanks
