I went to my local Goodwill yesterday and picked up these candle holders (5) and white plates(5). The plates in two different patterns.  There was one TALL candle holder which was $3, the rest $1 . Pretty good haul, I thought! Got to the check out and the girl started wrapping them up and then looked at me sheepishly and asked......"are you a senior citizen?"  (which I am.) She wasn't sure but asked me anyway. So I got another 20% off the total! All came to $9 and some change!!!

GOOD TO BE OLD!   So now I glued the plates to the candle holders and made some cake plates! I never had one, so I get the pick of the "litter"!

I've used Gorilla Glue Epoxy - and it holds really well.

Thanks for sharing.

I got a 4 place setting of Buffalo China (dinner plates, salad and desert plates, bowls and coffee cups) for about $20 bucks. It is good to be a senior!! Congrats on your finds.
