Treasures at a Thrifty Price

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality is hosting Today's Thrifty Treasures.

Well, I went out saturday with the hopes of finding a great yard sale, but sadly that was not to be. So, not to be discouraged I decided to see if I could find a new thrift store. Instead of one I found 3! Yeah!! At the first store I found the two little white birds @ .10 cents each and the glass dome (I believe it is a glass sconce) for .35 cents. At the second store I found the pewter strawberry shaped dish .99 cents...too cute!

At the third thrift store I picked up this gold frame for .79 cents, can you believe it!! It's in perfect condition. It will go with the other two I picked up last week. I have a project idea for all three gold frames.

Then, at the Savers thrift store I picked up the cute cherub angel for .99 cents and the HEAVY cast iron scottie dog for $2.99 (I have someone in mind that I want to give him to)

And because I saved soooooo much on my treasures from the thrift stores, I splurged a little bit and bought this piece of iron fencing from a lady off of Craigslist. I had actually called her to buy the little white table below. She had a few pieces in her garage and when I spied the iron I asked if it was for sale. Lucky for me it was!!! $36 dollars later I had more treasures for the house.

This is an older table that she painted and distressed, bonus...I don't have to do anything :)

And I love the original wood rosettes on the legs.
So what thrifty treasures did you find??? Stop over at Rhoda's to see what everyone else'll love the thrifty prices and wonderful treasures :)
Until Later

  9. Hi Toni,
    You did great, however, that Scottie dog needs to come home with me! Since I started blogging around 4 months ago I also have developed this strange attraction to cute ceramic little birds….
