Treasure Hunt Finds

Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,

   Happy Christmas Eve!!! I am happy to report the wrapping is done, and I can finally give my blog some attention again. I was so busy with holiday happenings this week and last that I feel like my little blog suffered as a result. I am glad I will be able to get back to normal happenings soon.

  Today was great fun because almost my whole family met up at the swap meet to do a walk through before visiting my grandma. It was so fun because the swap meet was double the size it normally was due to the Christmas holiday. I was lucky to find some lovely treasures too!

My first find were these lovely wooden vintage hangers. I think they will look fantastic with doilies or old photographs hanging from them. I paid $1.00 each for them.

The next booth I stopped at was so funny because it was an old woman's grandson selling her tons of "junk" as he called it. He said she was a hoarder and it was time to get rid of some stuff.  I bought the next two items from him. I paid $0.50 for this old book of Psalms. Its so small and cute. 

Vintage ornament hooks for $0.50. These will come out as a cute decoration for next year. I just could not pass up this cute box.

Very cute yellow frame for $2.00. My sister really wanted this frame, but I guess the phrase "finders keepers" came to life when I picked it up before her.  

Next up is a  wonderful old dictionary. This little dictionary is so small and cute. I paid $2.00 for it. 

This was a goodwill find from earlier this week. I got the lamp for $9.99 and the shade for $2.99. I was so excited to find another lamp because our apartment could use more light. 

Hope you all had a wonderfully thrifty week!
