A Thrifting I Will Go...

It's still early for yard sale season around here, so when I got a message that someone in my old neighborhood was hosting a yard sale.... and that she is a home stager/decorator with lots of home decorations for sale... I was there!!!  Fortunately the weather cooperated today.  Granted it was only 45 degrees at 9am, but it did improve later.

Here are a few of my favorite finds....just wait till you see the amazing deals....

Two cream colored canisters for my kitchen counter.  The one on the left is a Chris Madden for JCPenney one... just $2!!!  The one on the right was just $1!!  Don't they really stand out on the brown/black granite?

This tall bronzey metal urn was $5.00.  I like tall pieces.  The bottom showed a tag from HomeGoods for $16.99.  Right now, he's sitting next to the fireplace hearth.  Not sure where the permanent location will be...

This tall black and white ceramic vase was amazing!  Super cute in my black and white room... and just $2.  Again, the HomeGoods sticker was still attached on the bottom... $39.99 (and that's at HomeGoods, a discount store!)

See... fits in well.  Now, just gotta paint those walls....

These little pieces were found at a thrift store on Friday.  The candleholder scroll piece was $3.  The metal star was $1.

Ahhhh.... more cabinet doors... some without middle panels.  I got some ideas for these babies!  Oooh... can't wait!!!

And a cute little cheese dome.  Note this photo was taken on my "spraypaint mat" in the basement.... it's already in-the-works.  Thus the glowy flash photo... there is practically no light down there.  This was $3.00 at a thrift store.  I found another later, and balked at the $5.00 price.  Isn't that a hoot!  Had I found it first, I probably would've easily paid the $5.... but since I knew another store charged $3 for this one, I became a thrift-store scrooge.  Is anyone else like that?  Heh heh heh.

And last, but not least, a few 4" tiles... $1.00 for all four.  

Great day for bargains!


  1. What great finds! Congrats. I can't wait to see what you do with the cheese dome and the cabinet doors. Keep the crafts comin!

  2. I love the black & white vase! I never go to garage sales that have that much good stuff.....and I'M a Home Stager and I would never sell that good stuff!


Please leave a message... I would love to hear from you!
