My Latest Thrifty Finds

I have managed a few little trips to the thrift store since the new year started and here are my latest thrifty finds
I found these salad plates for .49 but it was 1/2 price day so for .49 total I go two of these to add to my tablescaping stash.  I love the color and the edge.

Done with Christmas but when I found one dinner plate and two cups in the Christmas Tree pattern and it was 1/2 price day...these became mine for a total of $1.23
Located in two different area's of the store I managed to find this 'almost' complete set of Pyrex Butterprint fridgies!  Missing two lids but still awesome.  Since it was Sr Disc Day I got 30% off.  I've already promised these to my friend Sherry for her booth in Laurel, MS
I will be taking her some items when I visit her on my way to Texas at the end of this month

Those are my thrifty finds from last week.  Like I said I am trying to cut back and be much more selective in my purchases!

I saw those Pyrex fridge pieces in an old junk store the other day. And they weren't cheap!

I love the Christmas dishes and of course the Pyrex is wonderful! Wish I was going to be with you when you visit Sherry! Give her some extra hugs for me when you see her! ♥♥♥

Hi, You may be very selective nowadays. But you certainly lucked up with these items.

I just love those fridge containers. Makes me like eating leftovers!
I'd like to invite you to link it to "What's It Wednesday" as well.
We'd love to have you share!

Those are some really great buys! I love the brown plates. The shape of them is wonderful. I would have been thrilled to find them as well. Looks like you had quite a bargain day of shopping!

De tout, de rien said...

Oh fantastic fridgie find!! (Hey, notice the alliteration, lol?) I love your other finds too. I'm hitting the thrifts this afternoon.

Jan@southernjunkin' said...

Wow, super fantastic finds!! Our "big" thrifty store has doubled and tripled their prices and I'm having to hunt for other places to shop! You had a great day of shopping!!
Happy weekend!!

You really did good. I don't know about you but after Christmas a treat from your local thrift store is the vacation I need.
Have a great week,
Lisa

I love your picks - and this time I like the pryex - I didn't even know they came in that color. I think the thrift stores have been cleaned out kind of in the economy too - you know what I mean? You done good kid! sandie

Good deals Linda! Love it all.

You hit the jackpot with those thrift finds!! LOVE the Pyrex containers...your friend will be thrilled with those and bet they bring a pretty penny in her booth! My pal and I hit an ant. mall this morning where the dealers were offering 15% off their wares. I didn't find anything I couldn't live w/o today....but we had fun and got free donuts!! I don't feel bad about leaving empty handed...they've gotten plenty of my money over the years.

I'm working hard at not hauling home things that just end up at the Goodwill again in a few months.....it's so hard to pass up a really great buy though..... Love your little fridge dishes. They say that's really the best way to heat up things in the microwave so you don't get all of those bad chemicals......

Have a wonderful weekend!

Huggies,
Spencer

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

Great finds, Linda...especially the fridge set!

Be a sweetie,

bj said...

Hi, Linda Lou...I love all your finds. I, too, am cutting back on buying and just buy what I really love now. I especially love those little fridge dishes. I so remember using them years ago....then plastic and throwaway took over. :))

Kathleen said...

Great finds and super prices!

Elaine @ Sunny Simple Life said...

Oh I love those fridgies. That is such a great pattern. Lucky duck finding those.
