I found this great green glass jar a few weeks ago at a yard sale

 Not sure what I will do with it, but for $2 it will hold lots of goodies

A few Thrift Shop finds
This cute teapot and one cup was marked $2.92 but it was 75% off so cost less then $1....nice bargain

I found this great scale at Goodwill on Sr Day
It will weigh up to 30 pounds and will help me in shipping items for my Etsy shop and was less then $5

Now one of my favorite finds lately is in Pink so that makes me very happy.  It was at a consignment shop and was 50% off!
 Three place settings of Pink Fiesta Ware!
I love this and such a great color, it will go with so many things.
I can't wait to use this in some tablescapes
The cost for all this?

I am joining in with Debbie for the weekly

I love those pink dishes!! Great deal, you thrifty shopper, you.

I went to my Goodwill today, and the only thing I got was 5 pink linen napkins for 99 cents. It was a rather "miss" day today...but that's only one of many thrift stores I frequent.

have a lovely evening.

What wonderful finds you have today. I love the green jar, as it will go with your green dishes you have. So pretty and will be lovely set out at Christmas.

Love those fiestaware dishes. Pink to boot. Woo Hoo. I am so tickled pink for you.

That little teapot was just whistling away at you. Over you came and snatched it righ up.

Just beautiful finds today sweetie. I thank you for sharing with me.

Have a beautiful weekend. Much love, Sherry

Great finds as always girlfriend. You find the neatest things and always at good prices.

Congrats on being featured.


Mimi said...

OMG! What great finds Linda! Love them all! And a big woohoo on that pink set! Girl you are having some Fiesta luck lately!

Keetha Denise Broyles said...

I think your green glass jar is a STEAL!!!

1) I've never seen anything like it.

2) The "green" is so soft and delicate

3) The lid is glass

4) It looks old.

I think it is a treasure!

Susan said...

Cool jar, Linda. And the pink fiestaware is festivas! You did good, girl! Susan

A-MAZ-ING! You have the magic touch when it comes to thrifting!!

Jojo said...

Can't wait to see what you do with the green jar! That is so beautiful and I'm already imagining it as an accessory for a garden tub.

Chatty Crone said...

Julie Harward said...

I love the little green glass jar too..very cute! ;D

Susan said...

Ooo, I like your green glass topped jar. What a lovely light color. And I really like the tea cup and tea pot. Very cute. What are you going to do with the pink dishes? Mix and match with another set? Pink and Green perhaps? :-)

Great buys, Linda. I haven't been out thrift shopping or hitting garage sales in a couple of weeks and I think I'm going through withdrawal. Maybe tomorrow I'll hit a couple if the rain stops by then. Steady rain all day today. Oh well, it's been a good crafting day.

Hope you are well. Enjoy your weekend!
