Friday Frugal Finds: $3 mirror, 25¢ placemats, $3 wall décor, and much more!

Lots of finds to share with you this week! Smile  Some from yard sales and some from thrift stores.  So here goes!


I stopped in quickly at Value Village with my nephew and found some good finds.

  • Balderdash game – 60¢
  • Taboo game – $1.91
  • Scarf – 49¢

Then on Saturday I headed out yard saling!


This was at a yard sale in a neighborhood near my house.

  • Large basket – $2.00
  • Flower centerpiece – $1.00


Then I stopped at my parking lot yard sale.    These Christmas placemats came in a set of 4 and still had the tags on them.  Guess how much she said she wanted for them?  25¢ for ALL FOUR!  What is that like 6¢ each? Smile  Going to enjoy using these at Christmas!


When I realized her prices were so cheap, I took a second trip back through her booth! Smile

  • mason jar – 25¢
  • kids plate for my nephew – 25¢
  • wood centerpiece thing – 25¢.

Couldn’t find anything else at her booth that I couldn’t live without unfortunately – although I LOVED her prices!

Stopped at one more yard sale on my way home.  This was at a house that we drive by all the time and I love the way she has her porch decorated.  So when I saw she was having a sale, I knew she would have good stuff!


  • metal wall hanging  – $3.00
  • 2 glass vases filled with faux lemons  – $1.00 each
  • Metal tissue box (but that is not what I plan to use it for – any guesses what I am using it for?) – $1.00

And I made a quick stop at the flea market!  One of my favorite booths had told me he was going to have a house full of stuff to set out so I was anxious to see what he had.


  • Large ornate mirror – $3.00  (Would love to paint this some bright color!)
  • glass cake plate (vintage Recollection glass in original box) – $2.00

Lots of fun deals!  I will be showing you how I put some of these and some of my I love thrifting day finds to use in my home next week.

What did you find this week?
