Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,
It has been a full but fun week here at the Joyful Thrifters home. Here is what we are working on right now...
YEP!!! We are finally moving to a new apartment! We are so excited for a change and a bigger apartment. It will be a great thing. Plus this apartment has a small den, which Mr Joyful Thrifter said could be my new craft room! I am so excited! The thing I don't like about moving is my newly purchased treasures are going straight into a box for moving. So sad. However its for a good cause. Speaking of treasures, here are the lovely treasures I found today.
Today was an awesome garage sale day! Two separate neighborhood sales offered probably 50 garage sales to go to, and tons of fun!
A sweet yellow vase. I feel like its a particular brand, but I just can't seem to place it. I picked it up for $1.00. The sale where the little "R" was purchased was full of great goodies, but none I was interested in. However I found this small "R" and when I asked how much it was they giggled and said $0.25. SOLD! I love its little size.
Cigar box for $1.00. These are great for storage.
Two super fun games for $1.00 each. Its funny I never really enjoyed games, but then Mr Joyful Thrifter and I got married and I totally got into playing games. Its so funny. These two games are so much fun.
I have not found a lot of Pyrex lately, so I was jazzed to find this little fridgie at goodwill for only $1.99
Green wire basket for $1.99. Something funny about Mr Joyful Thrifter is that he hates HATES wicker, so when I see a basket that is NOT wicker I have to buy it.
The following items were purchased at one of the best garage sales I have been to in quite some time. The couple holding the sale were the sweetest people ever. She even welcomed me into her home to show me her collection of Pyrex.
She was so sweet she kept adding stuff to my pile. She sold me the following items for $5.00
These mason jars are crown mason jars from Cananda. They have the sweetest crown on the front.
Wonderful little jars and tins
I can't wait to use these light bulbs at christmas time.
I just love all of these old pictures. I got them all for $5.00.
Here are some close ups of my favorite pictures
Finally time to play "Name the price of that treasure"
Have fun and take a guess on how much I paid for this bench
I have decided to keep my give away open for 2 more days, so others can join in the fun. Feel free to leave a comment here to be entered in my 150 follower give away.
I hope you all had a thrifty weekend, and found lots of treasures.
