Beautiful metal window treatment in at CAP thrift store

This beautiful window decoration just came into the CAP thrift store on Monday. All metal, it is 20" high and 36" long. I can see it in a retangular window as well as an arched one. It is sturdy enough to rest on a sill or can be hung from above. The best part is that it is only 25.00!

NEW Ethan Allen King and Queen Duvets at CAP Thrift Store

 Ethan Allen furniture has been a regular and generous donor to the thrift store of fine items for the home. Their latest donation is an beautiful assortment of  new Queen duvet sets. These range in price from 1600.00 to 2300.00 new, but at CAP thrift they are between 275.00 and 300.00!

Each set has a different assortment of shams. bed skirts, etc. included. The original price is on all of the sets.
There are more sets available as well. There is not enough space in the shop for me to take each one out for photographs, they are even prettier in person than I can capture here.

The above Queen duvet is the softest ultrasuede, what a smooth feeling. With tiny black dots embedded in a white base, I can see red or turquoise accents completing this luxurious bedding set.

This is a soft gold Queen duvet and 4 shams  for sale. The below detail shows the texturing.

As a sports fan I can see black pillows with the gold ensemble making this a great Pittsburgh Steelers themed set, balanced enough for both a man and a woman! The original price was 1690.00

This is a king sized ensemble, also not too foofoo for a man:) The above right piece is the bed skirt. (the pink thingie on the lower right is not part of the set)

The CAP thrift store is open 7 days a week at 11925 Katy Freeway, Houston, Tx.77079-281-497-7559.

Nice suede chairs at Houston thrift store

These chairs are so nice that I am posting them by themselves to subscribers; I usually have a theme or several items. These are worth a post by themselves.

They are very comfortable and a light sage green, the color is not showing up well here. The best part is that they are only 70.00 each.  They are also in good condition. (The bear is extra!)

Let me be your personal shopper at this Houston thrift store!

Are you looking for a particular item, or even better, collect certain items? Some neat things I found at the thrift store have gone to happy owners recently, such as:

a set of Tommy Bahama martini glasses. A client's husband is a big fan of TB and he will be excited on Fathers Day at what "she": found:)

I just missed this for a client, but the Beatles memorbilia fans that got it said they had never seen one like it before.

This wonderful couple adopted my  foster Flan, on the right, and found a life jacket for him at the thrift as they like to rent pontoon boats. Then they raided the collectibles area for all of the chihuahua stuff they could find.
(Both Flan and his new sister Lola were much happier when the camera went away.)

As soon as I sent this from my cell phone camera, it was purchased for an absent minded relative:)...I can do that for you, as well.

A set of Shar Pei salt and pepper shakers came in today and a Shar Pei rescuer is waiting for them after one phone call.

If it is a Red Hat purse, rattan chair, Scotty bookends or something bigger, speak to Hershey(the head poobah), any staff member or me and we will keep a look out for it.

The next "special" day is Tuesday, May 17th, purses and shoes are 1/2 price.

The CAP thrift store is open 7 days a week at 11925 Katy Freeway, Houston, Tx. 77079-281-497-7559.

Thrift store blog extra-2 vintage kitchen items just in today!

 Once in a while I will slip in a "mini post", when something really neat shows up and I happen to be at the thrift:). I don't even cook, but think both of these items are VERY cool. In this one instance, neither item had been priced as of posting time, I try not to do that, but I just could not wait this time. Hershey the head poobah is out of town so these may not be available until Tuesday afternoon. How's that for a tease?

This aluminum stand was brought in as a cupcake stand, holds 18, but a volunteer mentioned it could also hold cones for ice cream....

The other item I did not get a picture of and it is a cast iron muffin thingie(it's not a pan, really, but is what was used for baking muffins.)The manufacturer is marked on the bottom but has a little too much black on it for me to read. It holds maybe 8-10 muffins.
