Friday Frugal Finds–plate stand, 50¢ game, vintage milk glass, clothes and more

I am back with another edition of Friday Frugal Finds!  Where I show you what I picked up at yard sales, thrift stores, or my favorite flea market last week.  I love seeing what others find at yard sales or thrift stores and it helps give me a vision for items I might find and what price I should be paying for them.  So hopefully this helps you too (or makes you want to come shop with me!)

It rained buckets last Saturday so I didn’t do any yard sale shopping on Saturday.  So I was glad I had gotten out and hit a few yard sales on my way to town on Friday.

This yard sale was in the neighborhood across the street from me and I almost didn’t stop on my way home.  Glad I did!

I got a plate stand for $3, a white vintage Fire King bowl for $2, and a board game for 50¢.

At another yard sale I walked away with this little yellow dish.  I just liked it cause it was yellow and I plan to use yellow in my bedroom re-do Smile

Then I stopped at what is becoming my new favorite thrift store.  It is just a local charity type thrift store but it is HUGE!  And dirty and smelly and most things aren’t priced. Winking smile  Which usually means you are going to get a great deal! Smile

Let’s see if I can remember prices:

  • lace material (I use this all the time in decorating) – $1.00
  • doilies – 25¢ and 50¢ a pack
  • Cranium game – $3
  • Milk glass measuring bowl – 50¢
  • Mason jar – 50¢
  • black shoes – $2.50
  • white shoes – $1.99
  • orange dress (LOVE this – washed and wore it the next day 😉 – $2.50
  • jean skirt – $2.50

Gotta love those prices compared to $5.89 for a dress, $4-6 for shoes, and $6 milk glass at my Goodwill.

So what did you find this week?  Did you do any yard sale shopping this week or did you get rained out too?

  2. I found a new, still in shrink wrap lego game for $2 at the goodwill. Even if the kids don’t like the game, the lego pieces alone in it are worth more than $2!

  3. Great Shopping for a great price! Keep up the frugal shopping. I will soon be married for 31 years and most everything in my house is either from Garage Sales, Estates Sales, or Thrifty Stores. You have a great blog. Also, I love the idea of going in my back yard and using dried materials for the flower arrangements. This fall I have to decorate the Book Club Luncheon tables. Have a great week! Wanda

  4. So glad I have found your blog! I have spent far too much time looking at all your posts. The milk glass bowl with a spout is most likelyP Pyrex. I have the exact same bowl, which is unmarked, but I found it at a thrift store with a larger bowl with the same stripes that is marled Pyrex. :]
