It's time again for Thrifty Thursday, a fun blog party hosted by our fun hostess, Leigh at Tales From Bloggeritaville. I know I said that I wouldn't be yardsale-ing last weekend due to a lack of funds, but the great thing about yardsale-ing is, you don't NEED alot of funds. So, after scrounging for loose change under anything I could move (sofas, cushions, tables), piggy banks, junk drawars and my car (always good for at least a coffee's worth of change) I came up with $20 - enough for coffee and the following finds.
This table was very country looking, just a plain old table. I've been needing a small table like this for my mud-room to throw my keys and mail on when I come through the garage (we never use the front door here - it's only for esteemed guests - HA!). So I gave it a little black spray paint and voila! You'll get a better look at this on Monday when I finally post my mud-room makeover on Met Monday. Cost of table was $5.
These little silver darlings were too cute to pass up. A mini sugar and creamer I'm guessing (help me out here peeps) for $2. Whatever they are, they found a home on a shelf in my master.
This was my favorite purchase of the day! White Ironstone creamer and sugar bowls. I think I paid $3 for the set.
I liked these old keys. I'll come up with a better use for them later, but for now they are just laying on an old desk in my rec room. They were $2.
The frame I fell in love with - so shabby - and the sconce will hold something at some point, probably a pretty plate, and be displayed in my Living Room. Both were $1.
And finally, I found these cute little wire baskets from Pier 1 that were never used. They fit perfectly on my bookshelf/entertainment center. I thought the labels were a fun addition, and they came with a bunch of em, so I can always switch them out. For now, I just labeled them "This" and "That". Of course they're still empty. I've been wracking my brain trying to come up with something cute to put in them, but I'm out of gas. Any suggestions???
Anyhoo, I paid $3 for these guys.
So that's it, and I even had some change left over to get a slice of homebaked coffee cake. Don't you just love it when they sell baked goods at these church flea markets???
So the moral of the story is, go in search of loose change! Another great place to check is the washer/dryer. Hubby is always leaving money in his pockets and sometimes I score big just doing the wash!
