One of the reasons I sort of got hooked on blogs was the thrifty finds and ideas that all of the ladies were sharing. Well, I went out to one of my local thrift shops this past week and came away with some great finds. This is a local thrift shop that supports a charity, and its el primo cheapo! I thought I’d share my jack pot with you today and participate in Rhoda's Thrift store treasures Monday.
Princess #1 is having a Mad Hatter tea party/ very merry un-biirthday themed birthday party this year since her b-day is at the end of the summer, and we’re waiting until after the start of the school year to throw her one. The guests will be both boys and girls so I have been collecting pretty tea cups for the girls and whimsical mugs for the boys to use.
I thought these would work.
I couldn't resist the white rabbit planter to use for a center piece. I think I’m following it right down the rabbit hole.
These are for candles, but I won't be using them that way. I'm thinking cloches!
I got this great stemware. I'm thinking I can use them for table scaping with candles or floating flowers in them. They would be cute for dessert also. Princess #1 has already suggested we use the champagne glasses for New Years.
Look at the detail on the stem. I love it!
I found this silver plated dish. It has "Wallace EPNS 6451N" stamped on the back. From the research I've done on the Net it's not really valuable, but I thought this was a pretty pattern.
A small nick knack display shelf could be useful. I was thinking of panting it white for one of the princesses rooms, but I may use it some where else. Painted though, of course.
2 yards of Waverly black fabric at $.75 a Yard, awesome.
I don’t actually need another dining table, but I could not resist buying this table for the price of $20. I am still doing the happy dance. We’re going to take the top off and make the table narrower so that it could be use for a buffet or a sofa table.
I mean look at those legs! Gorgeous!
Total cost of all of my finds including that $20 table with the stunning legs: $28.92 cents
I'll bet you thought I was done. Well, I'm not. I was taking the kids to their respective summer programs and low and behold around the corner from my house someone is cleaning out their garage. I spied these magnificent treasures at the curb side. Yeah, I did it. I dug through the trash in my own neighborhood.
Look at this chair, talk about patina. Cost?: $O
What about this cute little stool. All it needs is to have the seat woven. How much was this? That's right ZERO moolah.
Hmmm, what can I do with this? Oh the possibilities, and oh yeah free-ee.
I think these former table legs may grace my kitchen window as a part of a window treatment or mistreatment as the Nester would say. And again I paid nothin'!
Oh so many possibilities for these table legs. Anyone have any suggestions about how I should use these that I got for free, free, free-ee?
