Thrifty Treasures

I hit a few Estate Sales on Friday but came away empty handed so I decided a trip to Goodwill in the next town over was in order.  It seems that everything at Goodwill is either $.99, $1.99 or $3.99….weird.  I picked up these three wooden pieces for $1.99 each:


I just loved the curved edging of these pieces, they just look like they were all made for one another, don’t they?

IMG_2294I’ve got a great idea for each of them, I can’t wait to show you soon!

I strolled down to a neighborhood garage sale late Saturday morning and found the perfect desk lamp for my new sewing area:


25 cents, can you believe it?  I’m going to introduce him to my pal Mr. Spray Paint soon, I’m sure they will become fast friends!

That’s all of my thrifty finds, be sure and visit Rhoda over at Southern Hospitality to see everyone else’s treasures.


  1. I cannot wait to see what you do with the wooden pieces!
    Be sure and mark your calendar for the HUGE estate sale, dont know if your interested. Its on my blog today!

    your friend, Leigh

  2. Great finds! I love goodwill! I can't wait to see what you do with them! Love that little wooden box/tray!

  3. loving the curvy edges, adds some personality to the pieces.

  4. Oh yay! More great finds! I'm suffering thrifty finds withdrawal. :( lol
    Can't wait to see what you do with them and that lamp is an awesome deal!

  5. I love the flower picture - pretty! Can't wait to see what you've got cookin' for your finds!

  6. Fabulous finds ! What color will you paint that lamp? I love it.

    PS - the nailhead trim party is postponed, sorry for any inconvenience....


  7. I love the wavy design of that frame and the lamp. Our GW has never seen a price tag under $2.99! And that's for something that would be worth a quarter anywhere else! Who prices their stuff anyhow? Have they ever worked retail to learn the real value of USED merchandise? LOL Show us your lamp when you're done painting it.
