Today's Thrifty Treasures



It's Monday, Happy Memorial Day! Time to share those great Yard Sale and Thrift Store finds! Rhoda over at Southern Hospitality hosts this exciting party every week! Go on over and check out all the great finds!




Well, not much to share this week. Pretty sure the holiday and graduations slowed down the Yard Sale volume out here in Arizona. We went to several sales but nothing really that great. I spent $20 (which was my budget for the day). Here is what I got:

I forgot to add and did not take a picture of, but I also bought for $5.00 from a yard sale that was wrapping up (after lunch) a brand new tent for camping. Not bad! So technically this put me over budget bu $5.00




Red glass top table - $10 (my big spend of the day), I plan to paint this black or dark brown.



Additional cheetah items for future Halloween costume - $1.00. These match the outfit we found here.




Black bird cage-inspired thingy for Sofia's bathroom - $5.00 (this was at a yard sale with a lot of nice things but very pricey.







Cook book holder - $3


2 small 5 x 7 frames matted for 4 x 6 - .50 each. Yes there are frames hanging with no pictures! I hung them today on the wall of the playroom that has all black frames. I just got around to hanging some of the other frames I had found for $1.48 at at Target. Now, since they are on the wall, I have to get the pics printed.



What about you? How did you do? Make sure you go check out all the other great posts and link up with your treasures!

i am nooooooo good at bargain shopping. i have ZERO impulse control and buy the first thing i see, on sale or not. it's a terrible problem. ha! love the cage-thingy in sofia's bathroom! and not that it matters, but i vote for dark brown on the table. :)

That little table was a great find, and so was that birdcage shelf. I would love to find something like that for my porch!
