Sharing some more fun, frugal finds today! I have been hitting the jackpot recently finding all kinds of items at yard sales, Value Village, the flea market, and Goodwill.
You saw this old sleigh in my Valentine mantel pictures. I found it in January at the flea market for $5.00. Couldn’t believe the price when I asked the guy cause he is the same one that I bartered with for weeks over a $35 chest that I finally got talked down to $22.
It is a workable sleigh, but with the 60 degree January we had, I don’t think my nieces will be using it this year on any snow.
A friend and I made a trip to Value Village on 1/2 price day last month and I found some fun finds! :)
This white solid wood stool was $3.53. Perfect for my little nieces that can’t quite reach the sink to wash their hands! It will be getting a cute paint makeover soon…. (Maybe I should let them help decorate/paint it )
I also picked up some clothes (1/2 off):
- an Old Navy khaki skirt – $1.65
- Ann Taylor Loft scarf (realized this when I got home!) – $0.98
- small scarf from Gap – $0.35 ( I tied this in a bow on the front of a black/gray purse to dress it up – fun!)
Then I popped in Goodwill later that week. (My overpriced, always half-empty shelves store. I am beginning to not go there much anymore and try to visit the one in another town. Or spend more time visiting Value Village. ;) As I was walking in the door, they were making an announcement that for the next hour – ALL ladies short sleeve clothes were 1/2 off! Since I didn’t find any décor that was worth the price they had on it, I went straight to the ladies section. I found 6 cute summer tops (some with the tag still on, as you can see!) Regular price $4.59 each (craziness!!!) so $2.29 each on sale for 1/2 off. I have already worn 2 of them (did I mention 60 and 70 degree weather for most of January into February??)
Have you found any fun finds this week? Share them or link them up in the comments?
Am I the only one that thinks paying almost FIVE DOLLARS for a secondhand, short sleeve t-shirt or shirt is outrageous?
