Treasure Hunt Finds

Hello Fellow Thrifters and friends,

  Well I must apologize for my absence. I guess I was just busy or something and I did not get an opportunity to post, but I am back with some lovely little treasures.

I bought this glass christmas tree filled with ornaments for $1.00. It was a small estate sale with great prices.

This is my silly purchase of the week. A glass penguin called a people feeder. Its so cute, and sort of ridiculous. I paid $1.99 for him. 

I bought 4 scarves for $1.00. Some of them are all silk, and others are just lovely. The doily was $2.00

Who doesn't like free wrapping paper? NO ONE! 

And lastly my most thrifty find! A NEW CAMERA!!! I found an awesome cannon rebel on Craiglist and snapped it up. I paid half the price that the stores are charging. YAY! My new camera helped me take the pictures for todays post and this lovely shot as well.

I can't wait to learn how to use my camera better, and take even better pictures. 

Last but not least, I told you all that I would share how much I paid for this beauty...

A lot of people thought I paid $5.00 for it. Drum roll please..........I only paid $3.00 for it. He even marked it down from $4.00 just because he thought I was nice and it was the second time I had visited his thrift shop.

I hope you all had a thrifty weekend, and found lots of treasures.
