Second Time Around Tuesday~Thrift Store Shopping Spree

Hi, and thanks for popping in for
2nd time around Tuesday hosted by Diane at
Please be sure to check out Diane's blog for a list of the other participants and get a peek at their treasures they've found!
Once every month my husband takes me with him to his Dr.'s appt. out of town. We discovered a thrift store nearby the Dr.'s office, and now we go there every time....Well this might have been the last time he wants to take me along, because I kinda went CRAZY this time!
But there so much great stuff there and everything is SO cheap at this store! Almost everything I found was $2.00 a piece or less!
For instance this mantle scarf I have here on the living room mantle I got for a dollar! Can you believe it?! It looks brand new!

Btw, you might remember some of the items now on my mantle from when I used them as a centerpiece for my last tablescape! I thought they looked cute together, and I have alot of green in my
LV room.
I also thought this was a good place in the LV room to put this cute little white ceramic hen, and decorative plate and stand I bought there!

Look at all this great stuff !
These cute pair of framed prints was $2.oo a piece! A yellow polka dot planter! it even matched some ribbon I already had too!
I had hoped to find a cute teapot, and I did, but it turned out to be on a nite light! Oh well, I love cute nite lights!
The burgundy picture frame with roses on it... is like new, but the backing had come unglued, that was an easy fix!
Couldn't pass up the cute butterfly wind chime either!

These red fruit and berry wreaths will come in handy at Christmas!
Love this metal parasol with scroll design, I even found 2 silk greenery bouquets and one floral one. I've already put it in the parasol, hmm now where to hang it??
Oh, I went crazy for this vintage Princess House glass cake stand too! I even have a glass cover from another cake that's a perfect fit!
The little crystal vase they threw in for free, it's a little etched with water stain at the top. Do any of you know how to remove that??Well even if it doesn't come off I don't think it won't be noticeable with flowers in it!

Cute little decorative plate for x-mas, a pair of sweet crystal candle holders, paper doilies, and a roll of some sheer wide ribbon? with silver dots on it....
But my favorite find was the miniature highboy musical jewelry box, it was a little more expensive than the other stuff but still a REAL bargain!! and in perfect condition!
Well I hope you had fun going on my thrifty shopping spree with me! It was fun to treat myself a little.
I haven't in so long!!
Have a great week everyone, and thanks for stopping by !!

Wow, Sherri! You really found a lot of bargains there! I want to go shopping with you. I think that my favorite, though, is that gorgeous mantle scarf. It's unbeliveable that you got that for $1! That is a great deal!

Thanks for sharing all your goodies!

Happy Second Time Around Tuesday...

Good Morning Miz Sherri,
Wow you certainly found a lot of great stuff! I especially love that white rooster in your living room. I've seen similar ones in junk shops around here for $12 and higher but they always seem to have a chip in them so I let them pass. I envy yours *smiles* The yellow polka dot planter is too cute! All your items are wonderful and I'm wouldn't have been able to pass them up either.

You found some great treasures and it seems like you also found a great "tresure chest"! Thanks for sharing.

I love your finds and the mantel scarf is so cute. I am just starting with thrift stores...see what all the bloggers do!! Somehow, I had never really thought about them. Yikes.

Your blog is getting cuter all the time, Sherri! Adorable.

Hugs, Barb

Looks like you found the motherlode!
I love thrifting and I'm always on the look out for a good shop :0)
Your header is fabulous!

Cass @ That Old House said...

Wow, those are fabulous thrift finds! I am loving that tea pot night light; used to have a toile tea cup night light but my husband broke it -- I think by mistake!

To get the water mark off the glass, try filling the vase with water and dropping in some denture tablets. It can't hurt, and sometimes it does the trick.
Good luck!

Gina @ The Shabby Chic Cottage said...

You hit the jackpot of goodies! Loving those bargains!
