Thrifty Finds

My hubby and I love to go thrift shopping at thrift stores, garage sales, estate sales auctions etc.  That is what we did on Saturday.  We found some good deals!

The first thing we did was stop at an estate sale.  We found a beautiful bookcase for $45.  There were also books being sold for $1-$2.  Because we bought the book case and a whole pile of books, the lady running the sale gave us the books for free!

This is the top part of the bookcase.  Unfortunately, right now, it is a little crowded.  We plan on making our living room bigger over the next couple of months.

Here is part of the bottom of the case.

I am a huge Nora Roberts/J.D. Robb Fan!

The bookshelf, except the bottom shelf is full of Nora Robetrs and J.D. Robb books.

I let the hubby have the top of the bookcase.

Along with being a crafter, I also have a booth at a local co-op vendor store.  So, I picked up a couple of things to resell.

I found these old vinyl albums for 99 cents each!  There are 13 altogether.  These sell for $2.00 and up online. 

I found this little figurine made by Lefton for $1.49.  She sells for about $20.00. 

I bought these Wooden Scoop Wall Sconces for 99 cents each.  They sell for about $10 each.
And this my friends is why I LOVE thrifting!



  1. I love to shop at thrift stores and find all kinds of goodies. I love old vintage stuff. Your bookshelf looks nice in your living room.

    1. Thrifting is addictive. I love going into antique stores and finding deep discounts.

  2. Thata certainly makes it a bargain buying day for you. Now I don't have a car, this sort of activity is OUT for me: but I rarely had the patience. Good luck to you and hubby though. Particularly liked the bookcase

    1. Thanks Isobel. I think it the feeling of nostalgia and seeing things that my grandmothers used to have that makes it so exciting for me.

  3. Wow, you have some great finds! The vinyl records are a steal!
