(All photos are clickable for better viewing)I stumbled onto some great bargains at the thrift stores yesterday so thought I'd take part in my very first Thrifty Thursday sponsored by Leigh. Pop on over and see more than you bargained for!
First up is this precious bunny cake stand which carries the mark of Bella Casa by Ganz. Since most items were 50% off at one store, I only paid $2 for this lovely little fella that's all ready for Easter.
The vase in a lovely shade that's between blue and lavender was only $1.50 and the cute little egg candle was $1.00. I know I'll get a lot of use out of the four clear bread plates at $ .79 each.
Approx three yds of pale sage green fabric was a steal at $1.75. As soon as I figure out how to work the sewing machine (that I got free - see earlier blog post), I'll probably make dinner napkins. There's more than enough for that, so I might re-think if that's the right purpose for it.
More fabric at another store, and I think I may have paid $3 for this piece. It is a bit heavier material, so it will probably be transformed into placemats, which should work well with the dinner napkins that I paid $1 for the set of four. The napkin rings were $1.50 for the set of four, a big savings over the $2.50 each that the original sticker said.
And last but not least, this funky little chair that I fell in love with. I had picked it up and put it back twice last week, and when I saw it still at the store yesterday, I knew it was meant to come home with me. It has the original vinyl seat which someone covered, and I will cover it with something more suitable for my tastes - not sure what that will be yet. This little gem was only $2. How could I pass that up?
Oops, I almost forgot - Molly was the best bargain of all! For a modest fee of $56 which included first shots, license and a certificate to get her spayed, I got the sweetest little puppy I've ever known, and supported my local Humane Society at the same time. It doesn't get any better than that!
