Treasure Hunt Finds

Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,

    It was such a fun garage sale day. Mr Joyful thrifter and I found an awesome block sale, and we got to walk from garage sale to garage sale finding great deals.

I found this sweet hand quilted table runner for only $1.00



Here is what $5.00 can buy you...Yes I did say $5.00 because Mr Joyful Thrifter is great at making deals. 





I found this sweet little copy of Little Women last week at a Sunday moving sale for $1.00.


Yellow Suit Case for $1.00. The sweet lady I bought it from told me she took it on her honeymoon 38 years ago. Like I have said many times before I love treasures with history.


I traded my mom one of my lemon Pyrex pitchers for this awesome suit case. It is so cool. It has a mirror and a little drawer on the inside. I am really enjoying my suit case collection. Its fun to see them all stacked up.



And finally my wonderfully sweet Mr Joyful Thrifter gave me these beauties this week just because.  He put them in my Pyrex vase. They look so lovely...


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

Smiles,
The Joyful Thrifter

  11. The butterprint Pyrex for $5 what a great deal! I love the suitcases and the story with the one. I love the smell of roses and the feel of their velvety petals on my nose when I go in for a whiff! All great finds!

  12. Wonderful finds! It is fun to have a history when buying vintage things, isn't it? You are going to make me look through my bookcases as I had that very same Little Women book; not sure if I still own it, but now I'm bound to find out. And isn't that a Nancy Drew book, too? I know I still have my NDs; loved her!

  19. I love the quilted stuff as i like all things quilted. The suitcases make me think of Anne of Green Gables but I have no idea why. Orange is a favourite colour of mine so loving the mugs. Little Women is a great read, nice to be reminded of it so thanks
