There weren’t many garage sales this week and I didn’t get to the thrift stores, but I still got some great bargains.
First off, there is a local department store that is going out of business. You may have seen the silver fabric that I picked up a couple of weeks ago. This week I grabbed this nice little chair and a big box of bamboo.
The chair and the bamboo cost me a whopping $15. I have already sanded the chair down and sprayed it glossy black. (darn, I always forget to take either the before or after pics!)
Next up was World Market. They had a big sign outside that said CLEARANCE. I don’t know about you, but I am like Pavlov’s dogs when I see a clearance sign, I salivate. We just had to go in and check things out.
All of their clearance stuff was 50% off. I was in heaven, it was like music to my ears, I was on cloud nine….you get the point?
Here I picked up a vase that I had been searching for years for. I wanted a tall vase to go next to my dreaded TV, anything to make that honker stick out less.
Vase $6 and that is the bamboo that I picked up at the department store. (I know that there is too much in there, but it is serving as storage for the moment)
The cutest felt basket for $5. It is about 16” X 16” and hides the ugly blanket that is so warm that I can’t get rid of it.
So, I am singing the blues because I didn’t get to go real thrifting this week, but I think that I did well.
Please stop by Rhoda’s Thrifty Treasures at Southern Hospitality for more great finds this week. The posts will make you want to get out there yourself!
P.S. I know that my pictures need some work, I am working with a borrowed camera until my new charger gets here.
