Oh, Happy Day!



This weekend's yard sales were fiiinnneee! I had a wonderful day and want to share with all of you my wonderful finds--to that end, I'm linking up with Rhoda at Southern Hospitality for Today's Thrifty Treasures. Make sure to visit her and all the other ladies for awesome finds!

I had the best luck with yard sales and Goodwill. Our local GW has 1/2 price day the first Saturday of every month. I hit the mother lode this time!

See these?


See this?


Can you make this out?
Now divide it in half!


Yep! Eight--count 'em--eight 14" galvanized chargers from Pottery Barn! For $3.00!! Score!

I've been wanting to try rebounding, but didn't want to shell out a couple hundred dollars for a mini tramp. Picked up this guy at a yard sale for $20! And I've already used the DVD that came with it--talk about sweating! This is something I think I can stick with.


Cute unusual spice rack for $2 at a yard sale


I think this was a mail organizer in another life. It now sits on an end table in the living room and holds all our remotes. $1 at a yard sale.


Yard sale books - $1 for both

A cute rusty shelf for 50 cents--this will get a facelift and a new home on the deck


Bentwood rocker--$10 at GW
Oh, and see the white thing on the left? That's one of those breakfast in bed trays. $1.50 at Goodwill

Lovely ceramic plates -- $1 each at a yard sale

Beautiful pitcher - $1 at same sale

Beloved Depression glass from a yard sale (I say that with a grain of salt). Their prices were more like an antique store, but I'm a sucker for glassware. The creamers were $5 each and the parfait was $15. It and the creamer are pink (my favorite color for Depression glass).


Yard sale wicker and metal basket - $1

And the grand finale: my hubby's best find--a solid oak roll top desk and chair for $100. Can't wait to clean these babies up and get them in his office!

So what'd YOU get??

I love the rolltop and chair! And what a great deal! Those desks are so nice, because you can just roll that top down, and all of the clutter disappears! Those books were a steal, and I love that metal shelf alot too! You did great, girlie!

You are on a Great, thrifty, roll, GF. Great finds! Love those 3 plates and the roll top desk, especially!! There are NO GW finds here, but when I go to Tulsa there are lots to be found.

Thanks for your kind words on my Blog. I love my Bloggy friends!!
