Our letter this week is J for JUNKIN
And since this post is about my great 'thrifty' finds...
I'm also joining Suzanne at COLORADO LADY for Vintage Thingies Thursday
A few weeks ago Linda @ Coastal Charm had a giveaway in connection with her weekly party NIFTY THRIFTY TUESDAY(check it out) and I was one of two lucky winners to receive $20 (in cash my dears) to go junkin with. Today was the day.
I took my $20 from Linda (cute card with the L and isn't Linda such a wonderful name) and I had a 50% off the "ENTIRE purchase" coupon for Value Village that my Mom had received in the mail. Woo Hoo! I was ready. Drizzling day but nothing stops a Junker!
I dug and I searched....high and low and rolled that buggy all over that store....this is part of what I scored (well except for the lens cap..anxious to take photos I guess).
I am a true Junker and love Thrifts, Flea Markets, Yard Sales and freebies! This was so much fun to spend $20 and see what I could gather with that money.
First I must confess I looked at clothes...I don't usually but I did today and I got myself a new 'outfit'! Pants, shirt & sweater!
Hard to see from this photo but he pants are cute Capri's (brand new)white with embroidery, pink pull over shirt and a light white sweater, total price for three pieces $11.00
This tea cup, 4 saucers, 2 bread plates & creamer were my first non-clothing find!
No markings but I thought they were tres sweet
Two baskets, bright green planter marked Maddux of Calif
cute little milk glass dish & this ashtray
Golden Nugget Gambling Hall, Downtown Las Vegas 60 cents
and the lemon is a salt shaker for 50 cents
Pink Planter new and very shabby chic and some great old silver
I got two of these little filigree dishes marked Lovelace from International silver company, $2.02 each
Silver sugar bowl marked F B ROGERS and very heavy
love the feet and handles only $3.93
I really like the color of this glass planter
Books~ Hardbacks (3) were 50 cents each and the paperbacks were 25 cents each (I got 6)
History of the Marines (my Dad was a Marine) we had this book but someone else in the family got it so this one is mine
This looks like an interesting book about Television
This was a fun find....a bag of patterns for 90 cents
Love these 60's looks....the one on the right looks like something Jackie Kennedy wore!
I also picked up some napkins, table runner and a few other 'gifts' that I can't show you.
DRUM ROLL PLEASE...total $42.55
I am one happy Junker!!!
