Thrifty Thursday #117

Part of the fun of shopping at thrift stores and yard sales is that you never know what you'll find.
There are days where I don't find anything, but I always enjoy the thrill of the hunt:)
This week I found several beautiful plates. . .

This one is a tiny dessert plate. I just LOVE the color scheme.
It cost a dollar, and I'm holding onto it for something special.

This is a very old dessert plate. It was only a quarter because of the chip.
I bought it anyway because it has such a beautiful print.
This one and the next two are for a friend who's collecting plates
in hopes of displaying her collection on a wall.

This large dinner plate cost a dollar.
I love the blue print and the house theme.
I already have one like this in my collection of mismatched dinner plates.

This one is slightly larger than a dessert plate, but smaller than a dinner plate.
This guy cost a quarter.
I think my friend will be happy with my finds for her:)

I never pass up wooden spools- even though I have quite a few.
These guys were fifty cents each.

I got a bag of brand new picture hangers for $ .25- they even came with the tiny nails
to attach the hangers!

I got this old box of 1" styrofoam balls for a quarter.
I need a few more, then I'll turn these into a darling fabric ball garland.

I got all these books for a quarter each.
I just love quick reads that I can get rid of once I'm done.
If I take one with me to a doctor's appointment and I finish it, I can just leave it behind. I did that once after a pedicure and one of the staff ran after me to hand it to me. When I told her I was through with it and didn't need it anymore, she was tickled to get to keep it!
That's all for today.
I'm hoping to hit a few yard sales this weekend.
Stop back by next Thursday and I'll show you what I find.
Thanks so much for stopping by and God bless.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
