I had a great week thrifting last week after taking the week before that off because we were on vacation.
It started with 1/2 price day at Value Village.
I picked up a skirt and dress at half price for $2.25 and 2 pairs of shoes – one was $1.99, the other $2.99. (For some reason the shoes aren’t included in all clothes and linens being half off on the last Wednesday of the month?)
Then as I was out running errands on Friday with my nephew we came across a family-run Estate sale.
I was excited to find this luggage set priced for $20! It was labeled as being 3 pieces but when I got home and unpacked it all it was actually FOUR pieces! Nice rolling suitcases, a duffel bag and a cosmetic/train case type bag. We might be flying somewhere next summer so we needed some more luggage. My husband does have a new set of luggage but we don’t have 2 medium size pieces. Plus if the airlines demolish this luggage I won’t be upset since they were only $5 each!
I also picked up these things at the estate sale. I only had $21 with me and these other things would have cost $5. $1 for the bed risers, $2 for the milkglass, $1.50 for the clear dish, and $0.50 for the milkglass planter. I offered to come back later and pay for the luggage but the lady took my $21 and said that was fine for all of it! So I really got the luggage for about $16 and paid $1.00 for each piece above
A friend and I met up to go my parking lot yard sale on Saturday and we both found some fun things!
I found my jewelry man and managed to find some fun pieces! Paid $5 for all of that.
I found a lady selling a bunch of Golden Books for 25¢ each and loved all the Bible story ones. Paid $2 for all of those.
Then I happened to walk past a man selling a bunch of vintage type items. I asked and he wanted $10 for the large Ball jar and $10 for the coke crate. That was a great price for the coke crate but I really didn’t want to pay $10 for the mason jar. I walked away and he chased me down a few feet away and said he would take $15 for both of them! So I got the coke crate for $10 and the turquoise mason jar for $5. It is an extra large jar (probably 1/2 gallon?) and it came with the zinc lid too. I already put it to good use on my beach-inspired summer mantel.
I picked up this Thirty-One skirt purse for $1.99. Great deal for one of those purses and it was in good condition. You can buy interchangeable “skirts” to change out on it.
So there’s my finds from last week! How about you? What did you find? Link up or tell me in the comments.
