JUNKIN FINDS FRIDAY #12

 Welcome to Junkin Finds Friday #12

Thrifting has been a little slim for me but I did make it to the Goodwill the other day and found two items that I was thrilled to put in my cart!

 Isn't this the cutest snowman ever!!
And he is a cookie jar!!
Don't know if I'll put cookies in him but he will be the centerpiece on my dining room table this week for sure!  He was a bargain at $3.70

This next find made me happy, why?
It's small Christmas quilt with a train on it!

I will have a new Grandson by next Christmas
and this will be perfect for him!
I think it's fairly new? not sure but for under $5
I think this is a real find! 

So what did you find this week?  Remember it does not have to be from a yard sale/thrift shop/estate sale.  Any bargains you might find are welcome to this party!  Please put a link to this party in your post and link up to your post not your blog.  

Last week we had 29 people join in!  I want to let you know I appreciate each and every one of you who take the time to join in to JFF!! 

Happy Junkin,
Linda
