Thrifty Weekend Finds
Oh, I'm so late jumping in to join the party at Southern Hospitality! Congrats Rhoda, on the big move! I usually post my finds on Sunday nights, but I suffer from migraines, and Sunday I had a doozy. It's 3PM Monday, and I'm finally feeling human!
Well, I think I finally pushed my husband over the edge. He usually never says anything about my finds, but when he came home from work on Friday, he said "What's the deal with all the white chairs?" I said " They were only $1 each!" He said "I didn't ask you how much they were, I asked what the deal is with them. What are you going to do with them?" I said "They were $! each!! Who cares!" I actually only wanted one of them, but....they were $1 each!!! They're perfectly chippy, and I love them!
This statue was also only $1, from the same sale. This was the final sale of an estate sale that I had gone to a couple of weeks ago. And I learned a lesson when I bought this: when going to an estate sale or moving sale, always wander into the backyard, because there might be treasures there too!
I got this mirror to go on my porch.
I remembered seeing these chandelier crystals at the sale weeks ago, and they were $1 each then.
This time they were $1 for all of them! I grabbed that box so fast, and wouldn't put it down until it was safely in my car! My daughter wants to add some to the lights in her room, and I want to add some to the dining room light fixture. Can you believe the people at the sale asked me what they were?! I said "I dunno", and I walked quickly away!
I got this pink turkey for $1. A pink turkey!!
The old candy tin and biscuit tin were found at an antique store.
And these chalkware fruit will be great additions to my fruity kitchen. They were $1 each. I hope you found some great treasures this weekend too. Now go check out everyone else's at Southern Hospitality! And to Mr. Old Glory: Happy Birthday!
