Thrifty Buys 11/5

It's Thrifty Thursday again at Tales from Margaritaville. I did pretty well this week I think! Be sure to visit Leigh's blog to see all the other participant's treasures.

This first find wasn't from a thrift store but an antique mall. These four solid maple fan back windsor chairs were $195. I thought that was a real good price. All you wood lovers out there, don't jump on me, but I'll probably be painting them black but waiting first for the table! I'm trying to put a dining room together!!! Now I need one more windsor type chair and then a harvest or farm table. (Or something colonial looking.)

OK, now here yet is another button bottle. Love them. It was only $2.95. (Sorry for the blurry photo!)

Really cute dishes I couldn't pass up at $1.00 each. It was 35% off day at Goodwill so all the prices of the following things, take another 35% off. Don't you love it!

This chicken covered casserole was $4.00.

Big jar, metal wall pocket and 2 herb pictures were all $2.00 each before the sale. (Oh, and 4 place-mats were $.50 ea.)

Old hand mirror, $4.00

Picnic basket in really good condition . . .

. . . comes with the table cloth that I think I'll use to line it. $10.00

Metal shower hooks that I needed! ($1.50)

See, don't they look nice? : ))
That's it folks. Hope you all did good too.


  1. Lovely items all.

    Is that YOUR house in the header???? Oh my, I think I'm in LOVE.

  2. Hi Shirley!

    Great haul at Goodwill! I'm with you regarding redoing larger projects right now. It's just to cold (I live in Southeast Michigan). But, I have fun things to look forward to in the spring!

  4. Shirley, Wow, did you ever make a wonderful haul! I am green with envy over those chairs, they are just what I am looking for. I have several of the baskets, they are wonderful for storing paperback books and magazines. I have them stacked in a little nook.
