Treasure Hunt Finds Part 1

Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,

     Mr Joyful Thrifter and I decided to surprise his mom for her birthday, so we drove to Hemet to enjoy the weekend with her. We decided to hit some garage sales on Saturday, and let me tell you they did not disappoint. Plus we all had so much fun at the sales.

Because I found so many lovelies this weekend I am going to break my treasure hunt finds into two posts. One today and one later in the week. JUST FOR FUN!

Ok I am going to show you my FAVORITE find first. I was driving home from work on Friday and I was chatting with Mr Joyful thrifter on the phone and I see a garage still open at 5:00pm on a Friday afternoon. I hit the breaks and turn around.  The ladies at this sale were so pleasant, and the prices were fantastic. This awesome red phone was $1.00.


My vintage desk is getting so cute with all of these wonderful treasures I have found...


Yay! cheerful new Pyrex. My first snowflake Pyrex. I am going to pack away the snow flake Pyrex and bring it out only at Christmas time. Salvation army was 50% off everything in the store so I paid $2.50 for one of the snowflake dishes and the orange one as well, and the divided dish was $4.00. I just love them. 


More treasures from my Friday night Garage sale and Salvation Army's 50% off sale. The white spool was $1.00 and the green one was $1.25. I don't know why I bought these, but I just really liked them. 


Sweet vintage Santa candle for $1.00. 


Ok I just love this owl!!! He is wearing the cutest suit. The original price tag was $1.00, but the sweet man who owned the thrift shop gave him to me for $0.25.


Precious little birds for $1.00. They are so sweet, and look good any where. 


This is the end of part one. Stay tuned for part two of Treasure Hunt Finds. 

It is always such a joy to share my treasures with you all! 

Smiles,
The Joyful Thrifter

Here are the lovely sites I enjoy linking up with. We get to share more fun that way

  5. I wanted to collect the snowflake for Christmas too but dont seem to find that much of it here in England. I wanted the plates which I never seem to find. Love that phone (and the typewriter on your desk). I saw one this week, might go back and see if its still there. x

  16. Loving your finds. All of them! I am especially loving the type-writer. I got an old one the other day for $4.00. Yours looks much better than mine. I don't know what attracted me to it, but all of a sudden I am loving it, and seeing quite a few around.

  24. Who doesn't love a great thrifty find. Lucky you!!! I love it all. I have forgotten about the snowflake Pyrex. A fun collection and useful too. The phone is a great addition to your vintage desk. I can see you had a ball with this yard sale stop. I always tell my husband I have car trouble, it always stops for a sale. HA!
