Here Kitty Kitty

During summertime, when schools are out, I usually curtail my thrift store shopping. I don't totally eliminate it, but I do cut down. I am glad I stopped into my favorite thrift the other day and bought a few items, including this Good Luck Kitty tin for .50 (it originally held some sort of candy and was made in England by George Horner & Company.) I also bought myself a new bottle of Gwen Stefani LAMB shower gel for $1.

I love shopping at my local thrift store - you never know what you will find - anything from vintage stuff to current stuff and at cheap prices. I am not a big fan of chain thrift stores (like Goodwill or Salvation Army), I prefer the small independently run thrift stores. Don't get me wrong, if I am near a Goodwill or Sal's, I will stop in, but it's not my favorite.

The countdown for back-to-school has begun!

George Horner tins are quite valuable here in England. You have a real treasure there for sure!

I love your Good Luck Kitty tin - really sweet. I've got a George Horner tin which looks to be exactly the same shape as your but mine has a crinoline lady on it. I got mine from a local charity shop but it cost me a lot more than the UK equivalent of .50. Nice find.

That kitty tin is so freakin' CUTE! Love it!

I don;t consider GW or Sally to be chains. Each is operated independently from the others and policies and prices vary from state to state and town to town. The charities may be national (but even then each local chapter has a good deal of autonomy), but the stores really aren't.
