A long FUN day of thrift store shopping on Saturday in Madison.
We visited: 3 Goodwill stores, 2 Hospice stores, one Savers, one St. Vinnie's, and an upscale consignment shop. Whew!
When I was a little girl, my grandma had a covered platter like this on top of her refrigerator. It always had cookies under it. Like magic. My favorite cookies were Stuff in the Middle Cookies. That's what we called them anyway. They were date-filled cookies and I have yet to find a recipe that comes anywhere close to hers. And, alas, none of us knows what recipe she used.
Imagine a small child liking date cookies? I can still see them and taste them.
I love the history behind objects like this one. Look closely and you will see the marks made when a dessert was sliced. So fun to think of a long ago birthday cake being grandly presented to a group of family and friends.
And the sweet acorn decor embossed in the metal. Love it.
$3.99 bought me something priceless.
Enjoy your week. I'm ready for winter to be over in this part of the world!
