Here is some of my recent thrift store and yard sale finds. I hope you are getting out there on the weekends and finding some good stuff at yard sales! This is prime season! Before it gets scorching hot (at least here in the South).
I picked up this guy for $2 at a local thrift store. There is a price tag on the bottom from Marshall’s that says $12.99. I am not sure if I will paint the base or not, but pretty sure he is going in my master bedroom.
I am going to love going to my pile of yard sale décor I have been hoarding collecting to decorate for a few future room re-dos.
I also picked up a set of 4 tan napkins for $1, a set of 4 navy placemats for $1 and a white short sleeve blazer for $1.50. I love this local thrift store even though it can be messy and dirty sometimes.
Then I found this Thirty-One bag at my parking lot yard sale. I casually asked the price thinking she would say like $5-8, but nope she said $1.00! This is one of Thirty-One’s most popular style of bags (the organizing utility tote) and even though I have 2 already, I use them CONSTANTLY and could never have enough. I could always use it just to store things on a shelf or closet too or even gift it or one of my other ones to a friend.
Now you may be thinking, “ummm… your name isn’t Jenny.” I honestly didn’t care too much about that and would have left it if necessary. BUT, I was pretty sure I could use a seam ripper and take the monogram off. Sure enough!
It took me a little bit (20 minutes or so), but I got it out! The bag is a heavy canvas and you can’t even tell from the outside.
The inside has more of a heavy plastic type liner so the stitch holes are still visible – but who cares about the inside of the bag??
So there’s my frugal finds! Paid $6.50 for a $30 Thirty One bag, a set of 4 napkins, a set of 4 placemats, a cotton blazer, and a $12.99 greenery arrangement from Marshall’s. Not too bad! Gotta love yard sales!
Here’s a thought: would you like it if I did a linky party on these Friday Frugal Finds posts where you could link up your posts about yard sale or thrift store finds and even posts where you makeover a yard sale or thrift store find? Or if you don’t blog or don’t want to link up, you could just browse what others link up? Let me know if that would be something you would be interested in by leaving a comment here or on facebook.
Don’t say it enough, but thanks for reading!
