I know you all want to live vicariously through my thrift store shopping, so here we go again =)
Monday I made a trip to my local GW. As always, I check craft supplies first and found a bag full of jewelry components for $4.99.
While you can’t tell from these pics, there is 3/4 of a pound of beads in each container. I would have to guess that these would have been at least $5 each (and they’re still sealed, never opened).
In the candle section, I found two sets of candle holders, turquoise flower tealight holder and prayer candle with rhinestone embellishment…I’ll apologize now for the pics…yuck =(
These are blue wood for $3.99 and orange stickers were 50% off…$2.00.
White ceramic candle holders were $4.99 and 50% off…$2.50.
Turquoise flower tealight holder was 99¢. I just think this is so pretty. The color matches a glass decanter I found at an auction several years ago.
And the blinged-out prayer candle priced $3.99 (really?) with yellow 75% off…$1. Love the rhinestones, hate the yellow ribbon.
I also found these four gold plastic seasons plaques…dogwood for spring, roses for summer, mums for fall and holly for winter. Priced at $3.99 with 75% off…$1. They’ve already gotten a coat of white spray paint.
I found this adorable copper and blue marble butterfly for my garden next year…$2.99 and 50% off…$1.50.
This blue and white carafe is an old Avon bottle, $2.99 with 50% off…$1.50. It will go up on the shelf in my kitchen. I really love blue & white.
In the Halloween section, I found this cute little yellow pumpkin votive holder. Original price $2.99, at 50% off $1.50.
A couple weeks ago I found a black blazer and mentioned I needed to find a top to go with it. I found it =) I’m wearing this beauty to see Andrea Bocelli in concert.
This pretty, pretty was only $2.99. I also picked up a couple cute tees. The red Love tee and blue smocked tee were also $2.99.
I found another pair of flannel pj pants. There is just something so calming, soothing, and satisfying about flannel. I love it!
Last but not least…I found this pretty pink jersey pillow case. I keep seeing all these necklaces made from cut-up t-shirts. Since I just can’t bring myself to cut up a t-shirt (t-shirt and jeans kinda gal, remember?), I can definitely take a pair of scissors to a pillow case….and it wouldn’t be the first time =) Only 99¢
That’s all for today. I did some shopping a couple days ago but haven’t had time to take pics. Those will wait for another day.
Thrift store tip for today…Always check to see what that day’s discounted items are…such as Orange tags =50% off, Yellow tags =75% off or maybe by category.
