This is a post I did on Saturday of my "Thrifty Treasure" finds and wanted to share on Rhoda's "Today's Thrifty Treasures". Stop by Southern Hospitality and see the Thrifty Treasures everyone else found!
What a day! My son Tyler and I had so much fun!! We arrived at "Idaho's Largest Yard Sale" a little after 7 am, ready for the hunt. I have to tell you, it was not the "largest" yard sale, but it still had some treasures to be found. I had a list of furniture pieces I wanted and decided to look for them first. The 4th booth I spotted, had just what I was looking for. Unfortunately on closer inspection, all of her furniture already had "SOLD" signs on them. And this was just after opening!! One woman told me that the people participating in this sale were allowed to shop around the other booths before they opened to the public. (Note to self...participate in the sale next year LOL). Tyler had gone in search of his own treasures...knives, swords, etc. (it's a guy thing, I guess) while I went from booth to booth, not wanting to miss anything. I had some lovely chats with people and did manage to find some bargains:
16x20 gold frame in mint condition $2, 5x7 gold frame $1, topiary picture w/black frame $1, basket picture $1, rooster $1, needlepoint in ornate frame 75 cents.
Close up of needlepoint and rooster. I love both of these little treasures!
Fruit basket $2, planter $1, white jars (that are perfect for my bathroom) and "family" blocks $3
Two sets of dinner plates, 4 green and 4 red $5. I love the square shape of them.
After shopping for a couple of hours, we had lunch and then went to a Sporting Good store that is going out of business and I purchased a 10' x 10' "pop up" canopy for $60 regularly $149. Yeah! I have been wanting one for a couple of years, but didn't want to spend a lot.
Hope you had a wonderful thrift filled Saturday.
