Friday Frugal Finds: new purse, really nice home décor items, and more! (+link up your finds!)

I had another good week last week hunting down some yard sales.  I think it has helped that we haven’t hit many 90 degree days yet here in GA which is rare for June.  So yard sales are EVERYWHERE!

I have actually been finding some of the best stuff on Friday instead of Saturday. Do you shop Friday yard sales?  They are a big thing here – I even see a good many Thursday sales (people will have a Thurs. – Fri sale or a Thurs. – Sat. sale).  I know when I have actually had my own yard sale, I have done much better on Friday than Saturday.

Picked up this pretty jewelry for $3 total.  Loved the red/white necklace combo.  Think that I will be finding a time to wear it over 4th of July next week.

A game tin for $1.00.  We actually didn’t have this game so this will go in our game closet.

Another really nice white pillow for $1.50.  Man, as soon as I became intent on finding pillows, I started finding them everywhere!  Wish I could find some colored and patterned ones.  But loving all these white ones for my bedroom redo I have planned.

Been forever since I have found or bought a purse at a yard sale.  But I couldn’t pass this one up.  $3 for a fun Chaps purse (which sells for $60-80 at Kohl’s).  It was in brand new condition – I honestly don’t think it was ever even used.  And it has a bonus makeup/change purse attached.

I have been not finding much at my parking lot yard sale recently except for jewelry.  Well that changed this week!

Picked up these really nice baskets for $2 each.  They are like the Ikea baskets that fit in the Expedit shelves and super sturdy.  They will be great for storing items in closets.

Also loved this 2 tiered fruit stand.  The lady had a bunch of fake fruit piled in it and a price of $8 on it.  I didn’t want the fruit at all and really wanted a lower price so I asked her what she would take for just the stand, if I left the fruit.  When she said $3, I snatched it up quick!  It is the perfect oil rubbed bronze color already and just really nice.  Not sure if I will use it in the kitchen or not – thinking I may put it in the bathroom to store/display towels, toiletries, etc.

Thirty-One makeup bag – in like new condition for $2 – yes, please!

Another pretty pillow – $1.00.

And 2 more pieces of jewelry for $1.00.  Loved that the black one looked like the popular “bubble jewelry” that you see everywhere. 

Now for some things you found last week:

Cheryl found some great outdoor patio chairs and some other things…. in her neighbor’s trash Smile  I have trash picked my neighbors before too, have you?

Dawn found some cute napkins and other accessories.


Come link up your thrift store or yard sale finds or a project or makeover that you did with some past frugal finds.
