This Week’s Thrifty Finds

Earlier in the week, I stopped by D.I. and was able to pick up a few good deals. The white plates were $3 for all 4 and the pedestal plate was $1.50.

The vase was $1, the bottle was .50 cents, and the white dish (I’m not sure what it is) was $1.

The tray was $1. I’m going to paint it but I’m not sure what color yet.

Yesterday I went shopping with my friend. We stopped by one of my favorite consignment/vintage/antique shops where I was able to pick up a few things. I love the milk glass I was able to pick up. The small vase was $2, the tall one $3 (it says Hoosier glass, so I couldn’t pass it up) and the round one was $2. The little egg cup was $1.

We stopped by D.I. after lunch and I found a few more things to bring home. The glass jar and the jelly jar were .50 cents each.

The Christmas pillow was $1.50.

The books were $1 each.

Hubby and I stopped by Lowe’s for some paint swatches and I picked up a few tiles to make some more coasters. Monogram coasters make wonderful gifts. Anyway, the tiles ended up being .01 cent each. Yep, .01 cent, so I got 8 coasters for .09 cents including tax. The store clerk said he had never seen anyone leave the store spending only .o9 cents. I’m so glad I had a dollar in my wallet and didn’t have to pay with a credit card. I hardly ever have cash.

The total for my thrifty shopping spree: $20.59. Have you had any luck thrift shopping lately?

    I have a request! Could you post about these Monogram coasters? I would love to know what you do and how you do it, and what the finished product looks like. That does sound like a GREAT gift! Do you have to be artsy? I hope not…

    Wow, 1 cent tiles!? What a great deal. I recently purchased a lot of tiles from Lowes to make coaster gifts for Christmas and I thought my 29 cents was a good deal!

    I hit an estate sale this weekend and found some great vintage treasures. My blog about them will be posting in a few days.

    Good work, Leanne! My favorite is the tray! I’ve been looking for something like that for serving coffee and tea to my stampers. I just landed two of your milk glass pieces too, the round planter and the smaller “tall” vase. Aren’t they fun? I actually already changed all my glass stamp room pieces to white milk glass pieces. So I will have to re-post soon. I just can’t leave things as-is. I think I learned that from you! 😉

    OMG The Bobbsey Twins, I would recognize that book anywhere! I read constanly when I was younger, from about 10-14 I lived at the library, open to close, and the twins were one of my favorites. The books you could read over and over and never get tired!

    That is so Cool!!!!
