Today's Thrifty Treasures!
Today I'm linking up with the bee-u-ti-ful and oh so talented Rhoda at Southern Hospitality for Today's Thrifty Treasures party. I've been showing you some of my favorite finds over the past weeks since yard sale season began here in South Jersey. Last Saturday was no disappointment. Denise and I headed out extra early for a townwide yardsale in historic Haddon Heights, a beautiful neighborhood filled with huge homes just oozing with character and streets lined with ginormous oak trees.
At our first stop of the day, I scored these two boxes of crystals from a man who was still setting up. Poor guy, we didn't even wait for him to finish. Shame on us!
This one was a box of drop crystal napkin rings for $1.
And a set of chandy crystals in perfect condition for $1. These crytals were huge I tell ya! Since I seem to be finding antique chandeliers on the curb alot these days, I decided I better start scooping up crystals whenever I can.
At the same home, I got two venetian mirrored boxes for $1 each. Here's a pic of the one that's a jewelry box. I put this one on my dresser.
And this table was put out just as we were about to get in the car and leave. I got it for $3. It's a sewing table and both sides open up for storing knitting supplies.
Moving on. As some of you may know, my home is going to be on the local Christmas Tour of Homes this year, so I've been stocking up on Christmas decorations every chance I get.
This feather wreath got lots of stares on the way back to the car and a few chuckles too. I think it's delightfully whimisical! And only $2.
Also got a Christmas throw for $2.
Before every yard sale day, I try to keep a mental note of things that I really need and I usually come home with at least one of those things. This time it was cushions for my front porch rocker. Well, I didn't come across any that I particularly liked at the yard sales, but that didn't stop me from picking these pretty ones out of someone's trash NEXT to a yardsale! Ha!!
Don't you just love the birdies??? So sweet!
I think they look nice on my rocker.
They just needed a little Febreeze is all.
And last but not least, I got these window boxes. A set of two for $5. All they need is some soil and flowers and they're good to go. The hardware even came with them!
Hope you enjoyed my Frugalicious finds of last week. Don't forget to check out Jane's blog for more!
