Treasure Hunt Finds

Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,

   Tis the season! I am super busy preparing presents and getting ready for Christmas. Its lots of fun, but my thrifting has almost been non existent.  Today I started having withdrawals, so my sweet husband took me to the swap meet to see if we could find some treasures.

I stopped at this booth and the man said everything he had he was selling for $1.00. Of course I started looking more closely once I realized he had such great prices. I brought home the following pictures.

This one is so unique. I love how whoever made it framed the picture under a doiley. So sweet

Here it is closer up

Here is the other picture I found

He had some old quilts and I asked if he was selling those for a $1.00 too, and he said he was not selling those at all. To bad. That is garage sale / swap meet rule #1 ALWAYS ASK! you might be surprised at what you will find. 

This man was calling out that he had estate sale jewelry nothing over $4.00. I thought it would be fun to dig around his bins for awhile. Its just fun to see what ugly jewelry that is around. I found these two pieces for $1.00. I am going to turn the owl earring into a necklace.

Hope you all had a wonderfully thrifty week!
