Time to catch up with my recent thrift store purchases.
Three matching candle sticks…$.50 each. You can see a chunk out of the middle one, I found the missing piece in the bottom of the bag and just applied a little hot glue – fixed. Right now these are displaying the Tissue Paper Candy Corn and Leaf Tree Cone I made last week but I will be able to use them for display year round. Not bad for $1.50. Here is a close-up so you can see the detail.
Found another wooden Boo, this one was only $.50. It will go with the purple pumpkin I found at a yard sale which will be used as a candy dish. Gotta have some place to store the chocolate, right?
Scribbles Dimensionals in Glittering Crystal for $.25. I will be using this to make snowflakes for Christmas decor.
Blue and green plaid jammie pants for $.75. These are for me! Love me some flannel jammies.
Next up are two black sweaters and a black t with a fleur-de-lis stud design…again $.75 for each one. The sweaters will be made into pumpkins and the t-shirt will be a pillow.
Total spent for week 3….$5.75 plus tax….sa-weet!!
On to week 4. Maybe I should get with the program and post weekly (just to make it easier). Yeah, that’d be too easy now, wouldn’t it?
Anyway, yesterday I stopped at my new favorite (and CHEAP) thrift store. Only spent $2.50. First find was this cornucopia for $.50. I will be finding a use for it for Thanksgiving.
The cheesy pick may end up on a wreath but only if I can make it look better….glitter, perhaps?
I honestly thought there were 2 of these, but alas, only one. I still intend to make a pillow cover out of it. I see our last initial centered in the border and the pillow on our king-size master bed. Cost….$.25.
This chocolate skirt with paisley embroidery will also be made into a pillow cover for our bed. Since our color scheme is chocolate & butterscotch, these will make beautiful additions to the master. And since the hubby is not a big fan of floral, I can bring in some pattern besides stripes, YAY!! Yes, I know there are a couple flowers on it, but it’s not “flowery” per se.
I haven’t had a chance to look through this book but for a quarter I just couldn’t pass it up. And the print date is 2006, so not too very old.
Just a couple more items and we are done. Here is the glass vase I mentioned above, to be filled with the apples and some leaves. Again, just fifty cents.
I’m pretty sure I have a glass candle stick to attach to the bottom to give it some height. I’ll post pics when it is completed. And last but not least, for the whopping price of 25 cents….
What am I going to do with this? Don’t know yet, but the price was right. I’ll find a use for it……eventually =) So that’s it for my thrifty finds.
