Today's Thrifty Treasures 7-19

I'm joining in on "Today's Thrifty Treasures" at Rhoda's Southern Hospitality. You can visit her very inspiring blog here:

Garage Sales

This week all these finds are from two garage sales. I haven't really had much luck with garage sales till this week.
This is a tea set for 10! Cup, saucer and desert plates. It's made in the US probably not real old but very dainty I thought. The whole set was $5.00.

This little serving plate was 50 cents and will go with just about anything. It has a pretty gold band around the edge.

It's from Bavaria. I like it!

Now, this will only be of interest to horse people but this winter stable blanket looks almost new, is a size 72 and was only $10!!!!!! All it's straps are intact. I don't really need it but at that price I'm sure someone I know could use it or I'll give it to a rescue!
Our garage sale days around here are usually Thursdays and Fridays so maybe I'll have some more luck this next week!


  1. Shirley, I wondered if Dayton was the only crazy place that had sales beginning on Thursday! Obviously, Medina follows the same suit. Seems weird to me- I was used to the weekends.
    You found a great buy in those tea cups, saucers, and plates. It's a pretty pattern, as well.
    I don't know if you'd be interested, but Kathy Stanz from Mansfield is having a fun sale on Sat. You're not too far from her- there are girls coming from Cincy, Zanesville, and Dayton and Columbus areas. It could be fun to meet everyone! Check out the post from last week.
    Thanks for visiting! :-) Sue

  3. Shirley, those dishes are beautiful...great price, too. I like the shape of the platter...being white it will go with anything.

  4. Fabulous! The tea set is so sweet.

  5. You got a good deal on the stable blanket for sure! My horses have turn out all the time, so for winter I'll be looking for waterproof jackets for them! A "must" for the snow and rain we get during the winters here. Your tea set is cute too - very dainty design.

  6. I just found my first Thursday garage sale last week. Half way between where I'm at and where you are. I was bored on Thursday so made the trek up there on the feeling that it might be a good one (and it was). If it was a dud I would have been hitting myself over the head though.

  7. Such lovely dishes and a great price.

  8. What a gorgeous little tea set. It is very nice and what a great price!
    Hugs, Cindy S
