Thrifty Finds - 7/12/10

I had some great finds recently at Volunteers of America and our local Salvation Army (which is usually pretty crappy, so I was excited!).

From Volunteers of America’s 50% off day (their pricing is SO weird):

5 milk glass bowls -- $.15 each

luke's first b-day 238

Twine-looking photo frame (for my beachy bathroom) - $.45

luke's first b-day 242

Cool vintage Pyrex bowl – $.96

luke's first b-day 245

4 orange placemats for Luke’s party -- $.45 each

luke's first b-day 244

2 Kerr canning jars (I also used these for the party; you’ll see them in the party post!) – $.30 each

luke's first b-day 240

AE hoodie – $2.50

luke's first b-day 247

Tommy Hilfiger wedges - $1.46 (There’s some black marks but they’re covered by my feet when I wear them - I am in love with these!)

luke's first b-day 237

Wire basket (used this to caddy supplies at the party) – $.60

luke's first b-day 239

From Salvation Army:

Cute plate – 99 cents (another instance where knowing French would have helped – I was going to display this in my kitchen until I realized “le bain” means “the bathroom!” lol)

luke's first b-day 241

Chunky whitewashed frame (I just popped in one of my favorite paintings) – 99 cents

luke's first b-day 243

Glass canister – 99 cents

luke's first b-day 246

I love thrifting! :)

  1. You always find the cheapest sales,stuff around my parts is not that cheap even at a thrift store or yard sale!

  2. wow wow wow

    those are some fun finds!

    Sincerely ~ Trish

  3. Those are some great finds!! Good for you. Love those shoes too. Thanks for joining the party.

  4. These are ALL fabulous finds, Jessica! The prices are unreal, too. Our thrift stores around here- Salvation Army and Goodwill- think they are regular retail stores. Ridiculously overpriced in comparison to what I see bloggers from other parts of the country post. I do much better at yard sales, even estate sales. Thanks for stopping by today.
