Treasure Hunt Finds

Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,

   After a very long week it was wonderful to have a day of relaxation. I really wanted to visit the thrift stores in Ventura, and my sweet Mr Joyful Thrifter agreed to take me on an adventure. We had such a lovely time. The weather was absolutely perfect. I love a day where all I need is a light sweater and cute skirt and ballet flats. That is a perfect day. Here are the lovely treasures that came home with me.

Two green tins for $0.29 each. I am not sure what I shall do with these cute tins, but the price was just right. I will either use them for decorating or use them as part of a gift. The options are endless.

Another Pyrex pitcher with lemons and oranges. I have the smaller version of this beauty, and now I have its mommy. I got it for $1.99, which was a fantastic price for this pitcher. 

More lovely Pyrex. This one was found at a new thrift store I had never been to before. Mr Joyful thrifter discovered it when he was picking up some inventory for his work. It was not a great thrift store as far as ummm....cleanliness goes, but it still had some gems hidden inside. This double dish was only $2.50. 

These wooden hangers are fantastic for hanging doilies or old photos or whatever. I bought two of them awhile back, and when I saw this stack for $1.95 I had to snatch them up. 

My favorite find of the day was this awesome TV tray. Look at that detail on the top. 

I will post pictures later this week of where this little tray ended up in my apartment, but for now I will just share how much I paid for her. I got her for $2.99. I just loved it.

Hope you all had a wonderfully thrifty week!

  1. Great stuff! Can't wait to see where the TV tray landed...

    I enjoyed MY thrift store trip this week, too. "Cheap thrills," I dubbed the outing.

  2. It's always so fun to discover a new thrift store. I saw a sign the other day for a new Goodwill "coming soon" and was so excited. I know there are lots I've not discovered here in Buffalo but do quite well at Amvets and the Salvation Army. You got some nice things! They Pyrex divided dish is a real winner! And I buy the pant hangers too. I've even sold some in my etsy shop. Glad you had such a fun day. It's so good to take time for ourselves after periods of work and stress. I had a stressful end of the week with my mom hurting her back so I'm planning a few hours of "play" today just for me. If you haven't entered my Choose Joy Giveaway, please do!
