I agree about finding values in thrift shopping. I forgot to mention one little treasure I picked up in Ross Dress for Less for $2.00- a little holder made of many different colors of glass. It could have been a candle holder, but I am using it to hold highlighters for the students.
The idea you have about the pots and vases is also a really neat one. All kinds of colorful and unique containers can be found in thrift stores.
Now I also haven't shown anyone the decoupage table and electric blue spray-painted chairs I am working on, but they will be in my room by the time school starts!
