Treasure Hunt Finds

Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,

   We had a lovely thrifty morning. We got to go to one really big barn sale, and then a small vintage sale. most of my treasures were small, but super cute and original.

This lovely vintage bag was $2.00. I just love how little it is. I think it would be so cute on a fancy night out or to a wedding.  The ladies holding this sale are going to bring out more stuff tomorrow, so I might stop by to see what treasures they bring out.

Another clear frog, and I don't have one this size. So of course it came home, and got added to my collection. This lovely was $1.25.

This small book caught my eye very quickly. Its pocket sized and is full of those hard to spell words. Its real leather and made in England. I gladly paid $1.25.

A day planner from 1959. Its all in French, and is such a cute little treasure. Another treasure for $1.25.

Little hand mirror for $1.00. 

Two Children's books for $1.00

I have been looking for a scrabble board for ages, and I finally found one today. I found it for $1.00. I really love how creative people get using the tiles or the holders for the tiles. I am going to have them say welcome for right now. 

This is my FAVORITE find of the week. A vintage happy birthday banner STILL in the package. I can't wait for Mr Joyful Thrifters birthday so I can hang it up. 

And now here is the answer to "Name the price of that treasure"
I had you all guess on this beauty

Drum roll please.....I paid $0.00 for this tea tray. The lady who gave it to us was so shocked we wanted it that she was more then willing to just give it to us. Hope you all enjoyed playing my little game.

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

  1. Lovely finds, I still have yet to come across a barn sale-- we don't have any in Chicago and people tend to do auctions back in my hometown of Arkansas.

    Is the little purse clear? Also great score on the tea/bar cart. I've been wanting one for a while!

  2. Love the bag, it is too too cute. Wonderful finds all around!

  3. My favs are the bag the spelling book and the mirror.
    I also love finding scrabble perferably the wooden ones.Got one a week ago not original box tho and not as cheap as yours well done.
    And the free shelving woo hoo.

  4. You got a lot of great stuff, I really love that little leather "How is it Spelt" book. It is so unique. What luck with the cart. I have been on the look out for one for a while now, but no luck yet for me yet.

  5. The little bag is gorgeous! Do you collect frogs for vases or just because you like them? Sherry :)

  6. That's a lovely little evening bag. I love dainty, vintage bags but I can never fit enough of what I need in there. I'd have to carry two, lol.

  7. What great treasures. My favorites are the book about spelling words and the French calendar. I am so envious of those and I can't believe the price you paid.

  8. Oh! You found some treasures for sure! Love the little dictionary!

  9. What a lovely assortment of finds! Everything looks to be in great condition.

  10. Well now I have found yours and ditto! Looks like we do the same thing on our weekends... Treasure hunting I love it! Hugs, Diane

  11. That Happy Birthday sign is my favourite find of yours this week too!

    Hope you post a pic when you use it!

  12. You made out like a bandit. Good for you.

  13. I'm jealous, jealous, jealous of your frog (so needed, so expensive) and the tea cart.

  14. I love everything, the clutch is my favorite!


  15. Oh, you found lots of fantastic treaures! I think me favorite is that vintage bag. It has such a cool look to it! thank you for joining TTF and havea fun day!

  16. what a wonderfully free treasure - that happened to my friend the other week at our local junk shop. He asked how much a creepy doll was and the shop owner forced it on him and told him to take it - she said it creeped her out way too much! ha ha.

  17. Thanks so much for joining my Restyled Sundays party. I absolutely love the vintage purse you found. Lot's of other great treasures too! Hope to see you next week.

  18. I wish I had been around to play! I know I could have guessed the tea tray, as I have one very similar!
    I also found a scrabble game yesterday at a busy thrift. You are right- so many people want the tiles that the games get harder to find.
    It was taped shut so I have to count how many tiles I actually received, today.

  19. You scored some great items at great prices!!!

  20. What a shopper !!! Great buys on everything, and such great vintage too. Tea trolley was a neat surprise.
    - Joy

  23. Free tea tray? Can you get a better bargain? I don't think so!

  24. Very jealous, all your finds are amazing!! Scarlett x
