This Weekend's Thrifty Finds

by - October 20, 2013

Lucky me!  We had a bunch of small fall fairs and garage sales to hit this weekend.  Saw LOTS of overpriced pieces, but did manage to score a few gems.

This wreath is originally from Target.  The price tag says $25. Ouch!  I picked it up for $3.  And how great are the sleigh bells?  I love how they look just draped over the wreath.  They were 50 cents.
This vintage cow bell was only $2.  It's a nice one to add to my small collection.
The Bobsey Twins books were 2 for $1.  On top is a vintage biscuit cutter.  That was $2.  Ignore the dust on the floor.  We were getting our electric panel updated this weekend.  No power = no vacuuming for me.
I think these little Santa candle holders are adorable so I had to bring them home with me too.  Only $1 for the set of 2 - although they are marked $2.  I would have loved if they were facing right and left - instead of left and left, but what can you do?
I scored not one, but two, Scrabble games.  Of course, I grabbed them for crafting purposes but my boys enjoy playing Scrabble, so I'm letting them have the newer version to play with.  Got a bunch of fabric quarters in holiday-ish color palettes.  
My 6 year old loves the cat and owl cookie cutters.  I'll be painting the wood server and giving it a Frenchy touch no doubt.  Looking forward to using it as centerpiece of sorts for the holidays.

Not a bad haul for the weekend.  Overall, I spent about $25 for everything (including some kid stuff not pictured).

  1. Looks like you got quite the haul! I've been avoiding garage and estate sales for the past couple of weeks. I always seem to get sucked in with the smalls and I just don't have anymore room here {or at my booth} for them.

    So many festivals going on here, too. There is another one we are going to next weekend.

  2. Great finds. Love the old bell and the cookie cutters. Wait till you see what I've been working on for Christmas with old cookie cutters!!!
    Your going to Love them.

  3. You got a lot of great stuff for my kind of prices!
