The good deals are found when it rains

Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,

   It was such a great day for thrifiting. Most people stayed indoors due to the rain, but this crazy thrift store shopper went out to find the deals.

Good Will was my first stop today, and offered me some really fun treasures. Then it was off to the salvation army, and finally the church of hope thrift shop.

I was joking with my husband today that a clearance rack at the thrift store is always such a funny sight because its cheap on top of cheap. I LOVE IT!!!

Well enough of me chattering on, here are the real goods...the pictures of the TREASURES!

 These wonderful little plates were on clearance for $0.99/each. The patterns were so fun and cheery, and you can't beat the price!

This awesome blue jewelry box was 1/2 price at only $2.00. My husband found this box for me and knew I would want to take it home.

The sweet little salt and pepper shakers were $1.99, and the lovely little doily was $0.99.

 My heart gets oh so happy when I find a pyrex dish. I found several pyrex dishes today, but all of them were overpriced (for my budget at least) I found this dish for $4.99.

Vintage stationary in a great gold box. Who wouldn't buy this set for $0.25.

Happy heart! old Christmas bulbs! Perfect for making ornaments this Christmas. Or just for decoration. They are so cute! $0.99/ea.

Two great tins! We are actually going to put oatmeal and tea in these cans! I love using cans to store things! $1.99/ea.

Books were half priced at salvation army today, so I picked up these two. The Time Traveler's Wife was $0.50 and this sweet edition of Little Women was $1.00.

I also picked up a few other items, but I will post pictures after I redo them. I will do a bunch of before and after pictures for that post. I also bought a few gifts, so those of course can't be posted.

Hope you all had a great weekend! What did treasures did you find?

  2. wow great finds!! Im also v jealous of the vintage stationary - I just love that! The box is fab and as always pyrex is a winner :o) Im off car booting this morning so I hope I have as much luck as you! Scarlett x

  3. I love the title of you blog! It is so joyful thrifting isn't it! Great finds, I love finding pyrex too, but am very thrifty when it comes to how much I will pay for it!

  6. Pyrex, metal tins, and books. We thrift alike. I'm enjoying exploring your blog. You take great pictures. Thanks for visiting mine.

  7. I like to use my Pyrex and Corningware as soon as I bring it home. Makes my purchase feel validated! Plus it's so much fun :)
