Two kitchen bar stools from Good Will that were a perfect style and color match for my contemporary style Country Home. Price $7.99 each and wish they had three.
But hey if I found two of them the third has to be out there some where and I will find it!
I have this thing for baskets of all kinds. I find then for really great prices at Goodwill and Salvation Army stores. Not to much luck at garage sales I find?
Curio I finished myself when I worked at Naked Furniture like a 100 years ago in Villa Park.
A find a few months ago. maybe even last year. Make a quilt rack into a plant stand. It is still open enough not to block the light in front of the window yet gives you the country charm you like and the plants seem to like it also.
The desk, given to me from an High School Friend, once a sewing station. Serves as a main control center for my Christian Studies and Poetry Writing. Everything on the desk & the wall behind all comes from my favorite Thrift Stores. The savings are amazing. I just love and admire the stories behind some of the old pieces I find and try to give them a good and loving home. Till it is my time to pass them on.
The head board, dresser, picture, lamp, shelf, plants, everything but the radio all comes from thrift stores. I mean you have to be realistic, being on a budget does not mean you can not be creative. Regardless of your style choices!
Shelf, night stand, lamp, plants and shelf accessories, all once again, from my locale thrift stores.
My collection of Antique Prayer Books. Some from the 1860's. I was very lucky to find this great display case to show my collection all in one area.
Items from my last trip to the Goodwill Thrift Store. I found some really cool stuff at great prices.
Place mates, wicker, 1.99 each normal 6.99 from Target. not to bad and in great shape
I like finding Avery products. They are in very good shape and the prices are a lot cheaper than even Walmart has them priced at. I got this full package for 1.99 Reg. priced 8.00
Wash Board, copper back, excellent shape, 2.99. Makes a great wall hanging.
Jobs plant sticks, full, UN-opened package-0.49 cents. Dudes, such a great price.
Such a Turkey kind of a deal but hey, I went for it any way. 49 cents each, vinyl place-mates. excellent condition, got 8 of them.
I am fire starter! well maybe not that dramatic. 99. cents. make sure you check the little liquid see through level on the top right of the handle. make sure it is full. Just a tip. I did not and well, me make no fire. I was not happy that day.
Nice Pine wood shelf. 3.99. I like the gallery trim on the top, adds more character.
Shelf I purchased a few trips ago. Filled with items from 99 cent store. Being Thrifty can be fun and get your creative side going.
Goodwill & Salvation Army are two of my favorite Thrift Stores to Shoppe. I highly recommend them both. I also recommend that you donate to them every time you do your Thrift Shopping there also. Always have a bag or two ready by your door. This way to can recycle, update and clean out your closet. Refresh your kitchen cabinates, get rid of excess.
Remember recycle, reuse, help out others, and have fun Treasure Hunting.
Best Wishes on Happy Hunting, Carl
