Another week of Thrifty Treasures

There were so many neighborhood sales this weekend, I could hardly decide which one to hit first.  So, I hit Brook Highlands and then headed over to Northlake at Greystone to see what was left.  Exhausting, but so much fun.

Before even leaving my neighborhood, I stopped at my consignment store neighbor’s yardsale that she always holds to pare down inventory and found this oh so cute straw aqua purse for $3.  How could I turn that down?  She also had a pair of Levi’s in just my size (and Talls!) for $2 that I scored.  Oh, how I love to find clothes like this.

And it was a good weekend for scoring clothes. I found 4 Tommy Hilfiger shirts that looked to be nearly new for $1 each for the hubs.  Now, that is bargain shopping.

Ran into one of my blog readers (hi, Liz!) at that same sale and bought this cute Ann Taylor top in my fave shade of green for $1.  Hello, come home with me.

Moving on, this cute Lily short dress (which I’ll wear as a long top) was $1.  Perfect for summer & maybe with leggings and flip-flops.

25 cents for this old Pyrex orange bowl.  I may resell this, since I have so many bowls already.  But, you know how much these go for now, the older pieces are so collectible.

Little white wall shelf was $1.  I scored a bunch of plates and may do a wall grouping in my living room with all of them, along with this piece.

Two white platters and both are old.  I found ALL of these plates and bowls for $14 and most of them are older pieces.

You can’t really tell, but these are light gray and the older lady I bought them from said they were from the 30’s.  The top one  is marked Luray, which I have seen out there, very pretty pieces.

Another pretty rectangular vintage piece in that pretty aqua color.  Again,  all of the above pieces were $14, quite a steal for this many and the fact that they are old.

Little Wedgewood bowl was 10 cents.  It has a chip under the rim, but still very pretty.  It could easily hang on the wall too.

Wrapping it up for the week, these vintage hot pink tiny Christmas balls were all for 50 cents.  Not that I need them, they were too cute to leave behind.

My small group of ladies at church are going to make over a room at The Lovelady Center and I found a few things to use in that redo, so I’ll share all the process with you when we get everything done. I’ve got before pics of the room and hopefully, it will be really cute when we get finished painting and spiffing it up!

So, now it’s YOUR turn for the party this week! What have YOU found lately. Add your link to the Linky list and remember our guidelines for the party:

  1. Add your permalink to the link list, which is the actual post that you did for this party, NOT your general blog url. To get the actual post, after you publish the post, just click on the title and THAT will be your party post url. Last year, I can’t tell you how many links I had to fix. This year I might get mean & delete them, so PLEASE try to get the correct url in the first time! 🙂
  2. Please add my button to your post or blog OR at least link back to this post in your post. That’s all I ask. It’s common courtesy to link back to the person having the party, so that all of your readers can find it too.
  3. Please do NOT link to an Etsy shop or something similar (even if you think it’s a fabulous deal) or I will delete the link. This party is for sharing thrifty finds from yardsales, thriftstores, or something along those lines.

    Hi Rhoda, Looks like you found some yummy white dishes this week too! And boy did you strike it right with those great clothes! What did we do for fun before thrifting and blogging? 🙂


  17. So many great finds! My hubby loves it when we find name brand quality men’s shirts at garage sales, especially the wrinkle free ones.

  18. Hi Rhoda, Love the purse and the green platter! Can I borrow both? LOL. Fun today! Come see my early Mother’s Day!

  19. What a fine haul you made this weekend ! Love the platters especially. I look for old ones to paint names and housenumbers on and give as house warming gifts. The green platter is very special too. Check out my post today and see what my weekend was like! Fun post!

  20. You got so many great deals. I love the pink Christmas balls. I also really like the Wedgewood bowl, who cares about the chip for that price.

    🙂 Michelle

  21. The Luray should be dated on the back. That’s the second piece of Luray I’ve seen you pick up at a Garage Sale. Wish there was some to be found around here. The gray is also a more rare color.

  22. Hi Rhoda,
    Great finds! I just love the serving pieces.

    Thank you again for hosting. I hope you have a lovely week!

    : )

    Thanks for hosting!

  24. I’m am so jealous of the white/grey plates! So cute.

  25. My mom has that orange Pyrex bowl as well as the larger red one. I have a white one with blue chickens on it I think. I have been using it for so long I guess I didn’t stop to think how old it really is. Pretty cool to think about. You scored this weekend! I didn’t go out. It was opening day for Little League on Saturday. 🙂

  26. Lots of great finds. I love the purse.


  27. Love the straw bag and christmas balls. You did real good on all the clothing too! Blessings, Vicky

  28. I’m a big fan of anything LP. Yours is darling and will look great with leggings and flip flops! This is my first time participating in your Thrifty Treasures and I am very happy to be a participant. Thanks for being our lovely hostess!!

    Susan and Bentley

  29. Aren’t consignment store owners for friends the best? I don’t know how I would survive without mine! I LOVE the platters you scored. I can’t wait to see them on your wall. Thanks for hosting!

  30. I love the straw handbag! Great finds this weekend!

  31. I’m so impressed with those finds! WOW

  32. Hi Rhoda, No garage sales yet up here in the north country! They will start soon, can’t wait! And guess what… I have 3 1/2 weeks left of school and can’t wait! I will be out looking for great bargains like yours at Garage Sales very soon. Have a great week, Nancy from OHIO

  33. Hi Rhoda!
    Boy, did you have a good time on Saturday!
    Those hot pink Christmas balls should do very well at Christmas time on eBay.
    Did your hubster like his new shirts?
    Mine would have!
    He hates shopping.
    Thank you for the very lovely party!
    I look forward to this every Monday!
    Blessings on your week, and as you make your home.

  34. love that orange pyrex bowl – I live in an Orange town, home of Oklahoma State Cowboys

  35. Always love to ready about your treasures. Where do you store it all?

    Please stop by to read my blog about our country home renovation.

  36. The next time we have a major Atlanta bloggers event, I’ll let you know. You could have come and spent the night at my place. We are talking about a Scott’s weekend party later in the summer. I’ll keep you posted.

  37. Hello sweet Rhoda – thank you for hosting another fun week of treasures! I had to share my finds from the weekend – insulator candle holder and an old trophy ice bucket.

    You’ve got some great finds too! Love that sweet little Wedgewood bowl!


  38. You really did make a haul. What great buys!! We had Tri-state weekend (band festival) so the garage sales were far and few between.

  39. Great deal on the mens shirts!!!! Thank you so much for hosting this party! I look forward every week for this!

    Take care!

  40. Oh Rhoda, those plates are a beautiful score. I love them all. I’m with you getting clothes this way is such a good feeling. Thanks for hosting I love seeing everyone’s thrifty finds. Smiles, Marla

  41. Love the platters and orange bowl!

    Thank-you for hosting Rho!

  42. Great finds this week! Love the platters 🙂

  43. Great finds, love all white platters and plates. You can never go wrong with white…it is so crisp looking.

  44. Hi Rhoda, I was at Pat’s, Back Porch Musings and realized I could add my link to your event. I haven’t figured out how to add a post photo yet. So here I am.

    I love the treasures you shared today. I am very familiar with the Luray dishes. They are very collectible. I once found a whole set and sold them when I was a dealer. I have discovered designer clothes at the thrift stores and have found the most wonderful things. I love this kind of shopping. I am converted entirely to shopping the thrifts. Retirement demands such thrifty actions these days. Plus I live in a small town where there are no malls.

    Have a wonderful thrifty day.
    Hugs, Jeanne
