Treasure Hunt Finds

Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,

   This week sure offered some great thrifting treasures! I am just going to jump right in with the pictures...

Since I gave this away today as a housewarming present I am not going to post the price I paid. I am thrifty but not tacky. However I still wanted to post the picture because I thought it was such a great find. The bottles say that they are made in Spain. I always value a treasure that is from  a more unusual location. 

Speaking of finding treasures from unusual locations, this little mug came from Sweden. The fun birds is what caught my eye, and then the price was perfect $0.99. I looked up the brand name of this little piece, and many items go for quite a bit online. This exact same cup sold on Etsy awhile back. However at this time I don't have any intentions of selling him because I think its just to cute!

I have been looking for green candles in this size for a few months now. I found the set of two green candles for $1.99 at goodwill. PERFECT!

Now onto the little Corningware dish. I am not a huge corningware fan, BUT I saw this at goodwill and it was only $0.99. I bought it with the thought of it potentially being the beginning piece to my first giveaway. However I am not sure, and it may end up becoming a gift to another friend. 

All of the above treasures were purchased during the week, and the rest of the treasures I found today up in the Camerillo / Ventura area.

I fell in love with this little ferris wheel for just $1.75. I am going to put candles in the little holders.

This little plate was my only Pyrex find of the week, and the matching cup was nowhere to be found. I paid $0.50 for the saucer, and I hope to eventually find the matching cup to make the set. 

The little jar on top was $1.50, and I think I will put flowers in the little holes. It will be a fun spring accent in my kitchen. 

This book was full of some crazy fun pictures. I think I am going to tear it apart (because it is already in sad condition from its previous owner) and use the pictures for card making.  The book cost a whole $0.50.

YAY for a new sturdy book bag! This bag was only $3.95 and will handle the large amount of books I take with me every day when I leave the house. I think I have a phobia of not always having a book with me. I just love knowing if I have five free minutes that I can grab one of my "car" books and read for a bit. 

This fun necklace was a Goodwill find, and I paid $2.49. I already have several outfits in mind that I am going to put it with. 

And last, but definitely not least, my husbands thrift store purchase.


WALL-E was one of the first movies we saw together while dating, so it has a special place in our hearts. Mr Joyful Thrifter found this pillow at Goodwill and said that he was going to come home with us. Plus he was 50% off, and only cost $1.00. One of my favorite things is when my sweet husband finds a cute treasure he says we have to bring home. I love putting his treasures in the best places in the house because I think it is so special that he shares my treasure hunting fun, and enjoys it too!
