Today's Thrifty Treasures

Don't you just love to go thrifting and see what you can find? This weekend my oldest daughter came home and we went thrifting and spent time together.

The weather has been rainy, cold and windy - very unusual for June and not so good for rummaging. But we found that there were still some good finds out there. The first rummage we went to, I got a Dooney & Burke backpack for $5. I got it for my youngest daughter and she quickly snatched it up so I don't have a picture.

Another rummage I found a Kathy Van Zeeland wallet that was still in the box with the tag - $5!

Then we ran into a bunch of lousy rummages and decided to vist Goodwill. I don't think we found anything there either and headed for home.

Not to be discouraged, we headed to the very same Goodwill on Saturday morning and we scored some great finds..

This cute pink plate - it also came with a bowl and coffee cup for $6 and I asked what would just the plate cost and they sold it to me for $1!

And then I found this dragonfly cloche - $5!

I've also been redoing the area above the kitchen cupboards and I had an area that was open and needed something.I found this red plate rack and plate - how perfect is this!


And on Sunday's DH and I always go to Goodwill to see what I might find (DH follows me on my heels) and I found this metal basket,


I'm pretty sure it's a Homemaker Ideas basket that sells for $50 or more and I got it for $10, still alot of money but much cheaper than buying new.

And then as we were waiting to pay, DH saw a magazine rack...

I'm not sure what the brand is but it reminds me of something you'd find at Pier One and we grabbed that too. The gal said that they just put both of them out and and not even five minutes someone is paying for them.

Tomorrow is a back to the grindstone and working toward the quarter end goal...

I didn't realize that today is Flag Day - but I did happen to buy some flags yesterday at GW and stuck them in my plants in front of the house...





Stop over and visit Rhoda at Southern Hospitality and check out all the other thrify finds!
