I am excited to announce a new feature here at The Frugal Homemaker…
(Try saying that 10 times fast! )
If I stopped in Goodwill, shopped at a yard sale, or maybe just found a great clearance deal and came home with a fun, new find – I will share it with you here on Friday! There might be some weeks where I don’t find anything fun or frugal so won’t have anything to share. But since I live in the south, I can usually find a yard sale pretty much all year except for some very cold weeks in December and January, so I will usually have something to share!
Here are some of my recent yardsale finds! 🙂
Oval frames – 50¢ each (By the way, I have a huge gallery wall type project on the agenda so have been picking up frames whenever I can find them. My goal price is under a $1 for 8×10 and smaller and less than $2 for larger sizes. Having a mat already in it is a huge bonus!)
a little milkglass planter – 25¢ (I LOVE milkglass, so absolutely couldn’t resist this for 25¢!)
A really nice 11×13 frame WITH a mat for $1.00 (I don’t care what the color of the mats are because that can be changed – anyone care to guess how I will change the color!? 😉 )
A large scrap of fabric (about 3 yards) for $2.00. Not sure what I have planned for this but I loved the colors and the pattern – pillows, a table runner? We will see!
And some of my more fun finds recently have been jewelry!! 🙂
(Yes, I buy pretty much buy anything and everything at yardsales! Clothes, purses, jewelry, home decor, gifts…)
Love this “set” of red jewelry that I found. And they were only $1.00 each! The necklace is actually really nice – made of heavy, faceted beads with a very nice closure. And I really like it – think I have already worn it 4 times in the last 2 weeks 🙂
And some black and turquoise jewelry. The black necklace was $1.00 and the guy gave me the turquoise bracelet for FREE since the “stretchy part” is all worn out and it needs to be restrung. 🙂
So there is my frugal finds and fun for the week! 🙂
Have you gotten any fun yardsale or Goodwill deals?
Or just found something really fun recently?
