JUNKIN FINDS #1

WELCOME TO JUNKIN FINDS LINKY PARTY!


I am so excited to be hosting this fun party!  

Show me your junk, your thrifty finds, flea market bargains, yard sale deals and those curb shopping freebies!  

Let's get started!  Today I'm showing you a few of my thrifty finds!

I found these two dishes at the Value Village in Texas the day before I left.  Love the red rim! 
 These will look great on a Christmas table and will go with some Kings Crown wine glasses I have!  They were only $2.97 for the two of them! 

I also found this plate at the same VV
Made by Johnson Bros
I love this pattern and only 60 cents!!

These cute little egg cups were 35 cents each and found at a Goodwill 

This spider web ornament was in a grab bag of goodies
so it cost pennies!! 

So now....SHOW ME YOUR JUNK!!

Can't wait to see what you have found! 

Please remember to link up your post and not your blog!
Add the button and link back to this post!
Try to visit as many participants as you can! 
And enjoy Junkin Finds!   

Always, 
Linda

Started a little early there hey? Great pieces that you found and you are the queen of thrift. Debbie surely picked the perfect replacement.

Julie Harward said...

That is very cute! As we were in IL. we went into so many shops along the way and I kept thinking..of all the people who had owned these things and what happened to them when the person died. There was SO much stuff! I wonder what will happen to my things? HUM ;D

Great finds Linda, Love that red rim!

Vintage Christine said...

No junk to post about but of course I had to comment on the Diamond Point dishes--last night I served my husband his soup in the footed bowl (without the ruby stain)and he was quite impressed and said, "When did you get this?" and I told him I used to serve Mom her nightly dish of vanilla ice cream w/dried cranberries in that dish. It's actually the pattern's sugar bowl. I have several pieces with the ruby stain including the ice bucket with the lid. You see the Tiara Home Products versions alot that came in many different colors but of course the ruby stain Indiana Glass pieces from the 60's are the most collectible. Good finds, as usual, Linda!
