Treasure Hunt Finds

Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,

    Words can't describe the vintage awesomeness that was found today at the yard sales and thrift stores. Mr Joyful Thrifter and I had such a great time finding great deals, and hanging out. We drove all around town going to every garage sale we saw a sign for. Here are the great treasures that were found today...


Clear Insulator was a steal for only $0.50
Paris sign was $1.00
Milk glass alt and pepper shakers $1.00

The lady that I bought the sign and S&P shakers from was so sweet and gave me a really good deal on some books because she said I was so nice. 


Both books were only $0.50 each. Resurrection is copy right 1886. I just love decorating with old books because they look great on a table or stacked up. 


Owl avon bottle for only $0.25. This estate sale was so great. Its what us vintage bargain seekers dream of. I found some wonderful things all at fabulous prices.


Another avon bottle for $0.25. I just fell in love with this one because its so cute, festive, and it came in its original box.


A mix of buttons, patches, and safety pins for $0.25


YAY PYREX! The bowl was only $1.00 and the pitcher was $3.49. The lady I bought the bowl from was so confused why I wanted to buy the bowl. Didn't bother me any because I was excited to find a Pyrex bowl for $1.00.


Cast Iron Frying pan for only $1.00. I can't wait to make hash browns on this guy. I am not a huge breakfast fan, but I love sausage and hash browns. Super healthy ha?


Vintage photos $0.25 each. I loved the poses. I am not sure what I am going to do with these, but when I see them at antique stores they are sometimes $5.00-$10.00 each. 


All of these blocks for only $3.00. I have some great projects in mind for these cute blocks. 


Sweet cross stiched runner for $0.25. I love wondering who owned the treasure before. Do you think they received it as a wedding present? Or maybe it was just for fun to work on during the evenings? Who knows, but I love thinking about it.


I got four of these place matts for $1.00. The tag says they were made in the Phillipines. I might turn these into some lovely art for our kitchen walls.


I already have some of these cheerful polka dot glasses, and I added these new colors for $0.60 each. 


These books were only $2.00. 


Very Small tin for $0.25 and a green tonka truck for $0.25


DRUM ROLE PLEASE!! Here is our best find...


We found this wonderful couch at the Salvation army for $75.00. We just love it, and Mr Joyful thrifter is so glad to have a couch that he fits on.

What treasures did you find? Please link up so I can share in your fun too!

Smiles,
The Joyful Thrifter

  5. Wow - such bargains and that sofa looks super comfy. I love the salt and pepper shakers - so cute. We don't have yard/ garage sales here :( But I guess car boot sales make up for that!

  15. I love the pitcher! I've been looking for an orange juice or lemonade one but it's so hard to find them with the lid! As for the couch, I love it. We have the same one in green. We call it the green goblin because whenever one of us lies on it we fall asleep!

  36. The sofa is amazing!I am always afraid to purchased upholstered furniture for fear of where it was in a previous life...how do you sanitize upholstered furniture that you buy second hand?
