Those will be cute. I think it will definitely add a vintage-y feel.

I so need to do this too! Your mom got mad at you? But that’s what those stores are for! And then the profits get donated! Homeless Joe down the street doesn’t have any use for candleholders. Just saying.

Salvation Army to the Rescue

Your table looks like my countertop! And I, too, will be donating mine back to the Salvation Army. I’m happy I inspired someone, and I love the thrift stores, they have such great finds there. Your centerpieces are going to be beautiful!

@VirginiaMarie – On a related note (regarding your mom being mad), my mom used to get mad at me for shopping at thrift stores too. Finally I found out (and explained to her) that thrift stores want ANY business. They don’t exist so that the less fortunate can shop there (though it works out that way a lot of times). They exist so that people can donate stuff, they can sell it, then they can use the profits to HELP the less fortunate through whatever programs they organize.

So for example, there is one here where the proceeds go toward programs for developmentally disabled people. Another one in the area uses its profits to help run its homeless shelter & soup kitchen.

Once I explained this to my mom, she started shopping at thrift stores too. hehe. Those of us who are able to spend more, are actually very useful to the store because we will go in and buy stuff (like your glassware.. or a pile or clothes, or whatever) that then clears off the shelf-space and allows the store to put something else out there for sale.
