Sweet Vintage Finds {books + tray}

Last week, I had 10 minutes between pick-ups and made a mad dash to a favorite thrift store in town. I was not disappointed. I found a vintage sewing book with wonderful illustrations and a classic children's book of Grimm's Fairy Tales; both are in excellent condition.

Looks like 'green' was the common theme.

The metal floral tray {$2} is being used in my bathroom for some color on a shelf that holds my bracelets and hair bobs.

And the green server bowl + lid {$3} is currently used to store my bracelets on the floral tray from above. My all white bathroom now has an array of jaunty colors to brighten a dull corner, while filling an organization need. 

What items do you search for while thrifting?
