Thrifty Finds This Week

It was a good week for thrifty hunting... I found treasures from my local second-hand shop, Goodwill and Value Village!

First, I couldn't believe I found this great picnic basket (lined with blue and white gingham!) at Goodwill for a mere $3! I found this the day before Halloween; I'll bet more than one person thought I was getting this for a Dorothy (from Oz) costume. Nope - no Toto! This will be perfect to hold my current cross stitch project in.


Those two silver salt and peppers were the most expensive thing I bought this week. I found them at Value Village for a whole $5; but they are beautiful and heavy.

I don't think I've ever seen a silver creamer with a lid before - this one was so ornate, I just HAD to add it to my collection, especially since it was only $4 from a local second hand shop!

The silver tray it's sitting on was a great find for a dollar at Goodwill. I love the feet! But I have so many of these trays, you'd think I'd resist... what the heck will I use it for?


Oh silly me... of course! Left-over Halloween candy! Doh!


Today during my lunch-hour walk I got this from Goodwill for only $2. But sorry to say, the teddy and writing will have to go.... I got it for that great aged board that measures about 20" x 8.5":


I just LOVE the patina on this -- but once the Christmas decor has been removed, what would YOU do with it? I still have to decide! Help!

  4. Very nice!! I saw a really great silver tray at a yard sale last weekend and thought of you. I almost bought it but I really just don't have room in this wee house.
