I hope you’ve had a good weekend. It’s been sunny and hot here in Georgia and summer seems to be sneaking in a bit too fast for my taste, but we’ll take it. I actually washed my dirty car today and it looks a whole lot better.
So, here’s a question for all of you. I know many of you enjoyed the Thrifty Treasures party from the last couple of years, sharing your yardsale finds every Monday here at Southern Hospitality. I think many of you are chomping at the bit to join this party again and I’m hoping that’s the case. My problem is this. I have a whole storage house with plenty of my Thrifty Treasures stored, so I sure don’t need to go out and find more at this point. So, I won’t have much to share in the way of finds for the moment.
But, I’d be happy to keep the party going if many of you would enjoy it too! So, what do you say about that? Would you love to keep it going at least through the summer? Maybe I could start showcasing some great finds each week that I see at the party and that would be what I feature the next Monday. That would be fun!!
You all know that I love a great find and with this economy, shopping wisely is a much needed skill. Shopping thrift is the way to go for so many things!
If I get plenty of positive feedback, I’ll start the party again next Monday, the 18th. I think many of you don’t get out there until April anyway, since it takes some longer to get started.
I would love to join in Thrift Finds on Mondays. That would be the incentive to share more of what I find than I’ve shared in the past.
Here’s to a great thrifting, garage-ing and estate sale-ing season!

I’d love to see what other fun things people score while thrifting or fleaing!

Yes, I love these parties, seeing what people got and what they do with them.
Janet G. says
Yes, I love to see everyone’s finds. Rhoda, I would also love it if you did a Yardsaling 101 sometime, now that you are here in GA. I wanted to join you when you did this before in B’ham, but it was too far for me to drive. Your so skilled at ferreting out bargains, I’m sure many readers would love to learn from you.

Who doesn’t like a party! I’d for sure do it and I think it’s so much fun to see a few of the “really good ones” featured. Great idea – love it!
This sounds like fun! I would love to try it. =)
Also, I live in Georgia as well (Canton area). Do you know of any good thrift stores?
Let me know if you restart your Thrifty Treasures Party and I will add it to my “link parties” page!

I big fat YES!!!!! That’s my 2 cents worth.
Great idea! I’m in!
Sounds like a winner to me…..

I am so in! I am always finding new thrifty treasures and would love to share and experience with others also. Link par-tay’s are so much fun and I never tire of seeing all the great ideas out there.
Thank so much.
Yes please! Your parties are the best!

I would love to see your party again! Hopefully, I will have a new house to junk for this summer. At any rate, I always love looking at what others have found. Thank you for considering hosting this party again!
I love this feature and am so happy you will host it again. FYI, I resell lots of my estate sale finds at an upscale consignment shop and net about $100 in mad money per month. I try things out at home and if they don’t work or I get tired of them, off they go.
Yes, Yes, and Yes.

Yes! And maybe sometimes you can go thrifting and just show us what catches your eye, even if you don’t buy anything. I like seeing what is available at what price in other parts of the country.
