Treasure Hunt Finds

Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,

   I feel as though I must use the term "hunt" very loosely this week in my title as most of my treasures this week were gifted to me by my dear friend Kami from The Blue Kazoo. She is moving away *sigh* and since she is moving to a smaller apartment she has sadly realized that she must downsize her treasures. She was kind enough to set aside a pile just for me! I was so honored that she would think of me. I am truly going to miss this dear friend of mine. As a way to celebrate our friendship and one last hoorah before she moves to Oregon we decided to spend the day at the rose bowl flea market.

Here is my sweet friend posing in her vintage dress from Buffalo Exchange.

The day was extremely hot so we only took two pictures, but this one is great because it shows off our new bangles. Kami knows an older gentlemen who sells vintage jewelry at the flea market and he was kind enough to give us each a bracelet. He was so cute.

I will miss you sweet friend!

Continuing on to the treasures she generously gave to me.

I have been wanting a vintage globe for quite some time. She asked if I wanted it and I quickly answered YES!

This treasure honored me so much. I have always seen this beautiful frame lovingly displayed in her home, and she told me that she wanted me to have it. I was happy and sad at the same time. I can't wait to display this beautiful frame in my home. 

Look at the lovely detail

Super cute yellow bunt pan. I am going to hang this up in my kitchen and pretend that I have matching yellow walls.

Cute painted picture. I love these little framed works of art.

Coca Cola carrier. Again she helped me check off another item on my vintage wish list by gifting this to me.

THANK YOU KAMI!!! For always sharing your treasures with me, for being a lovely friend, and for always including me even when you are far away.

I did find a few treasures other then the beauties above recently, so I will share those too.

A zip lock bag full of stamps for $2.99. I am going to incorporate these cuties into my sending love project. I know I promised not to buy new stuff, but this was a great deal and some cute stamps.

An amazing thing happened. I went to good will and this wonderful crazy daisy cinderella bowl was reasonably priced at $5.99. GASP! I had to buy it just because it was a good price, and because I don't have this bowl.

I fell in love with this painting right when I saw it, and at $1.91 it was a perfect steal.

I do hope you all had a wonderfully thrifty week!


Here are the lovely sites I enjoy linking up with. We get to share more fun that way:
