Treasure Hunt Finds

Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,

   Treasures! Wahoo! Things have been busy, so my treasure hunting has not been as frequent as before. My sweet husband and I spent the weekend in San Diego for our 3 year wedding anniversary, and it was so fun to go some where new for both of us. Plus we stayed in the most lovely hotel. I will share pictures later this week. We got to bop around San Diego on Saturday and explore some new thrift stores, which was so fun.

I love the little post card and magnet I picked up to remember our trip. I felt like this picture was a perfect representation of Mr Joyful Thrifter and I.

On Saturday we drove around looking for garage sales near our hotel. We found two Estate sales, and of course we stopped by. The first one had wonderful prices. I got both of these Pyrex bowls for $3.00 total. I love the larger two toned bowl. It is the first two toned bowl that I have. 

Two frogs for $1.00. These frogs are in awesome condition. The one on the left looks almost brand new, but I know the truth. I was excited to get two of these for only $1.00.

Yes those are ice skates. I have not bought anything super unusual recently, and when I found these I had to have them. We went to 1/2 price day at the estate sale, and I was able to get these for $5.00. I can't wait to display them at Christmas time.

Here is some wonderful inspiration for my ice skates at Christmas time. I can't wait to display them this holiday season.

Finally a new camera bag bought at goodwill for $4.99. Mr Joyful Thrifter scored this find for me, and I can't wait to tote my camera around in it. 

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:
