Thrifty Treasures

I went a little crazy on Friday (bought more than I needed to) but I found some wonderful things at great prices.

I bought the silver tray at G.W. for $1.00. It’s hard to tell from the picture but it has some beautiful scroll work around the edges. I already had the tea lights. Fun way to mix old with new which is something I enjoy doing throughout our home.

This was another G.W. find. I paid $7.99 but think it was overpriced. Click here to see this little guy get a makeover.

Ta-dah….I think it turned out great! Sometimes things just need a little love!

Purchased this at Salvation Army for $2.99. When Christmas rolls around I plan to fill it with green Christmas ornaments. For now it’s hanging out under my end table.

I was flipping out when I stumbled across this beauty at a local thrift store. It’s in great condition and became mine for $8.99. You may think this is expensive but it’s a Lenox serving tray. I looked at the Lenox website and silver trays half the size of this one were $65.00. That means that I got a STEAL! It’s shocking what people get rid of.

This is the back of the tray.

This G.W. purchase is not too exciting. I’ve wanted one awhile but it was not something I had to have. I’ve seen it in stores for $20.00. I purchase this new, never out of the box for $5.00. Now that’s a price I’m happy with.

4 brand new place mats (still had the tags on them) purchased at G.W. for $8.00. Not sure that’s a huge deal but I liked them and they were cheaper than ones I’ve seen at Ross.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I can’t wait to see what YOU found over the weekend. I thought I would leave you with a few pictures of little Abby. She’s not a big fan of the camera so I was tickled to get these shots of her hanging out under the bed.
