This is a dollar bill. It won't get you very much, or take you very far. If you have two of them, and you turn them into quarters, you can buy yourself five minutes on an air hockey table, or a few songs on a jukebox.
This is a lovely glass light fixture that I found during a recent trip to the fleas. This little lovely's a rule breaker: she cost a single dollar.
This is an old seltzer bottle. I love them, as I do most pieces of vintage bar ware dating back to a time when cocktail hour was a daily ritual. And required fancy dress. It's cost? A dollar.
By now, you're probably guessing that these fabulous old shoe trees were a mere dollar for the pair. You'd be guessing correct.
Then, though, there's this wonderful old TV tray that I am currently using as a bedside table. It was two dollars. But I got it for one.
Stay thrifty, my friends.
