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
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. Which usually means you are going to get a great deal!
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?
