Friday's Thrifty Finds

The hubby and I hit an estate sale this morning while the boys were in school.  Lookie at all of the goodies we snatched up:
There is something intriguing to me about the clown with the violin.  I don't know if it's a jewelry charm or perhaps more of an ornament.  The artist painted the image onto a metal shape - which I know makes it very old.  I just can't tell what type of metal it is though.  This one may or may not go into my Etsy shop - after I do some research.  The tag says $89!!!!!!!  I paid a quarter.  Meanwhile, my husband picked out the salt and pepper shakers.  And who could resist the little frame for 50 cents?!
Once I clean up these tongs, they'll be perfect for my Xmas eve table.  The vanity mirror was another piece that intrigued me so I grabbed that as well.
A week ago I couldn't find any bottle brush trees and now they seem to be everywhere I go!  These little cuties were 10 cents each.  The ceramic tree napkin rings will also look nice on my Xmas eve table.
Twenty dollars well spent!

Well spent, indeed! That little clown is interesting. I'd like to know now what you find out about it. Especially since the tag had it as $89.00 originally!

Love the s and p shakers so sweet. you had fun and good finds. I am sure the clown will turn out to be something great because it is creepy.
