I was driving around last week looking for something and I stumbled upon a new to me thrift store. Of course I was super excited and even tweeted about it! I found this tea cup and matching saucer at the new thrift store. I’ve been on the hunt for tea cups and saucers for awhile and was tickled to find a matching set. I have a project in mind for this little gal and it does not involve drinking tea! The silver thing in the background is a napkin holder also found at a thrift store.
These have to be my favorite! Bran spanking new Z GALLERI pictures with the original price tag intact. Don’t you LOVE when you find something at a thrift store that has the original price tag on it? It just further shows you what a great deal you’re getting. These were originally $29.00 each. My price, $5.00 each! Let’s give that one a BIG WOOOOOHOOOOO!
LOVE this little guy! I took him home for $3.00
I’m Lady Ga-Ga over the colors in this hand painted picture! The picture I took doesn't do it justice. I originally planned on painting the mat but decided not to. I really like the funkiness of it. This little guy became mine for $3.00
I know the book section in thrift stores can be a little daunting but you can really find some great things if you’re willing to spend a little looking through them. I was pretty happy with the books I took home. Who doesn’t need a napkin folding book…..am I right? How many times have you been pacing around your house because you didn’t know the fleur di lis fold? Well I no longer have to fret for .49 cent I can rest easy! I also found 2 really great cookbooks in new condition. I love holiday cookbooks. They usually have really great entertaining recipes. I jumped for joy when I found a cook book with a compellation of recipes from the best selling cookbooks from 2009!!! That one deserves another WOOOOHOOOO!
Another great thing to look for in the book section is music books. Sheet music looks much better than scrapbook paper made to look like sheet music….why not use the real thing when crafting if you can. If you do a lot crafts with sheet music look at your local thrift store for a few music books. This one was .49 cents. Not only does it look better than recreated scrap book paper it’s cheaper!
Liberty of London rain boots which can still be purchased at Target. I found these at Goodwill and paid $2.00 for them! Wayyyyy better than the Target price and these bad boys are bran spanking new!
New Express scarf with the tag still attached. I think I paid $1.00 for it. It’s thick and super long. I know I’ll put it to good use when winter rolls around.
LOVE the ruffle details on this winter vest! I can’t wait to wear it!
Another great thrift store find. I think I paid .50 cents for this little guy.
If you are not a thrift store shopper get out there and give it a try. I think you’ll be surprised with what you find. Now I’m not going to lie, you may be surprised in a good way as well as in a what the HE(double hockey sticks) is this kind of way but it all adds to the fun of the experience!
