Surprise Find

Thrifting has been slim picking around here lately, but I usually find something when I'm not really looking  Only one thing, but I had planned to purchase this new.

$1.99 at Goodwill!
 Like new, and had the double insulated bottom.
And no, it wasn't this shiny when I purchased it.
 My boy loves to fix hot tea, and I had sent the other teapot with him.
It's a lot more fun to boil your water in a kettle rather than a plain old boiler!
Have a blessed week!

Oh, I love a good thrift find...and ones that shine up so nicely at home. If the snow ever lets up and I can get out of the house again, I think I will treat myself to a little thrift hunting:) Something to look forward to!!

I just ordered a new tea kettle yesterday that looks like yours but it wasn't $1.99. Gosh, you are good! I rarely find that kind of bargain. Great job!
