I Found One!!

I have been looking for a shelf to hang on the wall to display some of my many treasures 
All of these are cute but the prices have been a little high for my budget...which you know is frugal....ok ok Cheap!
I've had shelf envy of Deb's on Just Cat's
She has such fun changing it out and adding seasonal items to it.  Love those doors!
So my search continued until last week!

Mr ALC and I stopped by a St Vincent DePaul's that we haven't been to in quite awhile.  The prices have risen but we still find some good deals there.
I LOVE IT!!
Look at the cute details...It needs a little TLC
but look at the price
I am so happy to have this shelf!  
Now to find the perfect place for it! 

I'm linking up to Diann's

Hugs, 
Linda

$4!!! Dang girl! You did get a deal! I'm about to post some pics of a shelfy thing too, but mine has colorful stuff on it. Mine was $15 and I thought THAT was a good deal...

Can't wait to see how you do it up. : )

That looks like my white shelf that I use for every holiday. I swear, I couldn't live without it. You will have fun swapping it out.

$4 is a great price! I like yours better than a few of the ones you showed at the beginning. I'm glad you found one!

Oh, Linda - that is a WONDERFUL shelf (complete with plate grooves) and a fantastic price. St. Vincent De Paul is my favorite thrift store in our area. (There prices are rising here, too - but still nothing like Goodwill or Salvation Army.)

It just goes to show - you'll find what you want if you just wait and keep looking and don't settle for anything else. Well done!

great shelf, even better price! Can't wait to see what you do with it. You know? I've noticed the thrift store prices rising also, I don't get it, it's still used and in need of make-overs. And the clothes..don't get me started!

From one Linda to another - wow! I'm coveting your shelf but since jealousy is such an ugly emotion, I think I'll just go hunting.....

A Few Pennies said...

Cute shelf, Linda! Perfect for your awesome collectibles--I'm going to be on the hunt for some old spice racks to paint up for little bottles. Thanks for inspiring!
