Thrifty Thursday #105

Last Saturday, I was cruising up and down some streets that I don't usually frequent, trying to find a yard sale that was advertised in the paper. I never did find that sale; however, I happened across a church that was having a garage sale. I was happy to have found it because I got some good stuff!

I fell in love with this old bowl. It was sitting in a stack with the bowl in the photo below.
They both have that patina that comes with age.
They weren't priced, so I wasn't too sure what to expect.

 Can you believe the gal only charged me fifty cents per bowl? These were old enough to be in antique shops and they certainly would have cost a lot more there!
I love them so much- and yes, I will actually use them as serving bowls.
Since there are only males in my house, nobody else seems to enjoy my old dishes, but it makes me happy to use them:)

I got this picture for $3. Its 18" wide x 24"tall
and is from the Kelly Rae Roberts Collection by Demdaco.
These cost $59.99 brand new.
Quite a deal.
It actually matches my bedroom decor. I even had a space for it!

Sitting next to the old bowls were some old plates.
Isn't this one a beauty?
I bought two like this- one for myself and one for a friend.

I also got this one which matches one of the bowls.
I paid a dollar for all three plates.

I got this beautiful lacy table runner for $1.
I'm helping to decorate for an upcoming wedding shower and we're using lots of white lace, so I've been picking up pieces as I find them.

I got this doily and the next for fifty cents each.

These will also be used to decorate at the shower.

Well, I think you'll agree that I was lucky to have stumbled across this sale!
 I only spent $7 and look at my loot:)
I hope you have luck with your treasure hunting this weekend.

Thanks for stopping by and God bless.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life;
 and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
Psalm 23:6

Aren't church sales wonderful? I always stop at them, once I stopped at one (half way point) on my way to a community yard sale. I found the most fantastic items, and the ladies and gents in charge were friendly and fun. My destination "sale" which takes 3 hours round trip was a huge dissapointment.
