Thrifty Finds

I am so excited that I FINALLY have something thrifty to share! It isn’t much but it is something.

Travis and I headed up to Louisville this past Sunday to our favorite store Tickled Pink and these are the two things I headed home with. I actually bought stuff this time instead of him.

A blue candy bowl.
I have eyed this gorgeous piece of depression glass from the store for months now but I haven’t wanted to spend the money on it-$40. I found this candy bowl for only $4.99 so I decided to snatch it up. I don’t think it is depression glass but I love it all the same.

I then found these embroidery hoops hidden behind some things on the floor. I got six of them for $5. I have seen a couple fun things out in blogland using these so I can’t wait to see what I can come up with… when I finally have the time to make new projects!

I found these two adorable little chairs there as well that I debated on getting. They were only $10 and needed some love but I ended up leaving without them. I keep thinking about them but I just wasn’t sure what to do with them. I would use one in my craft room but we already have extra chairs around the house so I just walked away. Hope I don’t regret it! All well!

So there you have it. Not much but I was just happy that I finally found something to bring home during one of my thrifting outings!

I will be linking up to some of these fabulous parties!

    That glass has beautiful coloring and interesting shape. That you enjoy it is what counts. Keep it for many years and your children or relatives will have a vintage treasure.
    I posted a few days ago about vintage glassware I found at a church sale. Now I know it is not as old as I had guessed/hoped, but I still felt good about my find.
