Thrifty Finds

by - July 30, 2013

Have you ever been to AmVets?  A friend of mine suggested I pop into one.  I'd never heard of them before but did manage to find one just a few towns away.  It's like a giant Goodwill but the proceeds benefit our veterans - which I love.  I scored a few nice finds today!

These little wire baskets were 99 cents each.
The black coat rack was originally from Home Goods.  It was $2.99.  The little wood candlesticks and wood salt shaker were also 99 cents each.

This wood tote was originally from Michael's.  I know this because I bought one with the word flourish on it and then transformed it into a Frenchy tote for my tea room.  This one was $2.99.  Not sure if you can see the ceramic jar tucked away in the tote.  I'm using that for a Frenchy makeover ala Petite Michelle Louise.

Not bad for $16 and change.
