What a busy week but I managed to visit a few Thrift Shops and one yard sale.  Here are my finds for the week!

 Remember I am trying to be more selective in my buying
 I found 3 green Harlequin plates and some books at a Thrift store in Athens, GA on Saturday.  I had lunch with my daughter and son in law and we stopped at this thrift store.  Everything was very cheap!!!  I got the 3 plates, 4 books and a cool glass for Blake for $2.50 
Driving over to Athens to see the kids I stopped at a church yard sale and found this red travel case for 50 cents
I only paid 25 cents for this old Fiesta cup
 I also got the 3 qt clear glass Pyrex bowl for $1

At a Salvation Army Store I found these two items

A vintage restaurant creamer and a ruffled edge milk glass dish
Both of these items were $1 each
I also found these spoons with the bamboo handle and a old refrigerator dish (at least I think that is what it is) without a lid
The refrig dish was $1.49 but half price so only 75 cents! 

I am joining in with a lot of other junkin friends 
Go visit DEBBIE here 

Thanks Rhoda


I'm sure this calls for another giveaway! 

Stay tuned!

Good finds Linda. Love the milk glass dish with the ruffled edges. I shopped at a Salvation Army store for the first time this week in Duluth. Found a few things that I will show later.

You did get some nice bargains! I also think that is a refrigerator dish. No thrifty finds for me this week. Went to a bead shop Friday, and what I got was not a bargain.
Have a great week.

Hi Sweetie...
Boy did you find some bargains this weekend. Great finds. I love the pyrex bowls, I am such a sucker for a pyrex dish. Like a magnet they draw me right to them.

Love the little white ruffled dish, was that a great find or what? Love the green plates and that blue fiesta cup? LOVE it.

Thanks for sharing sweetie. You were a busy gal this weekend.

Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Linda-You did find some good things at good prices. No matter what, it's okay if you enjoy the hunt :) I love your shadow shots from Sunday. The one of the side of the church seems to "ripple" as I scroll down!

Queenie said...

Hey Linda!
OHH I love that red travel case and what a deal! Sounds like you had a fun outing with the family too :)

Loved seeing the pics from the botanical garden and the post with the tea party all set so pretty on your porch... you really know how to do things up right girl :)
Hope you have a great week...

Great finds, love the fiesta cup!

Pam said...

Great finds. Who can bypass a 25 cents Fiesta cup? I am also trying to be more selective. It's hard though!

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Oh I love that red travel case! Aren't church sales the best. Always such bargains, and that was really a bargain. Of course, all of these finds were bargains. But then, you have a knack for finding some of the best deals! laurie
