Last Thrifty Treasures This Year

Well girls, we have come to the end of the road for the Thrifty Treasures party this year and as much fun as we have had, I think you’ll agree that a respite is in order.  We’ve got Fall and Holidays to get ready for.  So, I’m sure we’ll all find plenty to keep us busy.  I’m truly ready for a break from the yardsales, especially since I really don’t need anything right now. And I’ve got some projects that I’m anxious to get started on.

I did get out to the Mt. Laurel neighborhood Fall sale this weekend and only found one thing, spent $1.

This pretty knit long top by Kenneth Cole was $1.  I hope to wear it with black leggings and boots and a jacket this Fall.  That could be cute!

And look, it matches my pumpkin!

Isn’t this adorable?

I love, love pumpkins this pretty blue/gray color, so I bought one this year. This is a medium sized one, got it for $4.  I’m working on a foyer display on my table this year, so I’ll do something fun with this.  Yep, this pumpkin is real, straight from a farmer.  Can’t remember the name of this variety, but I have admired them for a few years.

The winner of the Ballard Designs petite carriage lantern is Kim from Kim’s Domestic Bliss.  Congrats, Kim!  I’m emailing you, so just get back to me to claim your prize.

This party is for sharing thrifty finds from yardsales, thriftstores, or something along those lines. If I see that your post is not really on track with this theme AND you don’t link back, I’ll delete your link. Sorry, but I’d like to keep the party consistent! IF YOU SEE THAT YOUR LINK HAS BEEN DELETED, IT IS PROBABLY BECAUSE IT IS NOT IN LINE WITH THIS PARTY THEME.

  1. Cute top, and I love that gorgeous pumpkin. Thank you for hosting, Rhoda! I didn’t get to participate as much as I would have liked, but I had to cut back on the yard sales this summer until I start using more of my finds. 😉 Have a wonderful rest of the evening!

  2. Thanks for hosting! I’ll miss this party, but I sure understand what you’re saying about the holidays & gearing up for fall 🙂 Love your blog!

  3. Hi Rho!

    Thanks for the party!

    love, kelee

  8. Rhoda,
    I love your two thrifty treasures. That dress would be cute with a jacket and boots. I really love your pumpkin! It is adorable!
    Thanks for hosting.

  9. Thanks for another fun summer of Today’s Thrifty Treasures!
    We will miss it, but you are right – we all will be busy with the holidays just around the corner. And, we know that you must be tired!

  10. Love the top and cute green pumpkin..(:)

  11. Great stuff! I know I will miss the party but the yard sale season is starting to pitter down! I did have some great luck with the one I had this weekend! Made $294!!! It was a great day and perfect weather!

  12. hi rhoda, thanks for the chance to share again. i haven’t done so in a long while.

    the top is a nice colour, great price 😉

  13. Well – this is my first posting for Thrifty Treasures and I guess my last (for now). I am sorry I didn’t know about it sooner. Love this Kenneth Cole top. Can’t believe it was only $1.00.

  14. The blue top will look very pretty on you. Looking forward to hearing about your projects as they unfold in the next while.

  15. Cute top. Thanks for hosting a great round of parties again this yard sale season. Have a great week. Can’t wait to see all your fun holiday decorations too.

  16. Great top! I also love that pumpkin.

    I’m actually glad this is the last Thrifty Treasure of the year. I’ve been put on a “goodwill/thrift store/garage sales/flea markets” budget. Boo hoo! 🙂 Now, I can’t say to myself “but I have to get something so I can contribute to the linky party!” LOL!

  17. Sad that this is the last link party! 🙁 But it will soon be time for the snow to fall and for the holidays to overwhelm us. I can’t wait!

  18. Thanks for hosting. I hope you have a good break.

  19. Love the top! I have to say that I’m jealous that you’ll wear it with leggings. I think I’m too paranoid to wear them- I’d feel like everybody was staring at my booty!

    Enjoy the seasons and holidays! 🙂

  20. Once again, thank you for hosting this party every week Rhoda. It’s been great fun linking up over the weeks and seeing everyone’s thrifty finds! I love your beautiful knit top. I too was yardsaling in Mt. Laurel this weekend, except I was in Mt. Laurel, NJ! I also want to thank you again for the lantern – I’m so excited to have won !

  21. I’ve never seen a pumpkin that color before. I WANT ONE! La

  22. Jewelee in CT says:

    I’m going to miss this party — I have had such a good time seeing all the great treasures and finding new blogs. It’s so nice that you host this — I wish it could go on and on.

  23. Gorgeous top; I love the color! I’m late to the party, because I’ve just started reading your blog. But I’m linking up, too.

  24. I love that variety of pumpkin. Right now, I’d be pleased if I could find a regular old orange one!

  25. I’m always amazed at your great finds! Cute top and what a bargain.

  26. Rhoda, LOVE the top…how cute is that and you would never know you spent only $1 on it. Your an inspiration to us that we can look fabulous without having to spend a fortune.

  27. What a cute top! You’ll ROCK IT with jacket/boots, etc.

    Is this really your last thrifty treasures this year?!?!?!?!?!?

    Noooooooooooooooo 🙂

    I’ll miss it. I didn’t have a chance to submit lately because all that’s been going on.

    I’m trying to blog more regularly. Including my most recent blog I posted today about anxiety to share with Chatting the Sky. I kind of dove right in there with this one. Please say a prayer for me 🙂 LOL!!!

    Are you all recovered from you NYC trip?

    Have a blessed day,

  28. Thanks for hosting week after week. There are so many other things keeping us busy this time of year but our weekly get togethers will be missed. I look forward to beginning again in spring.

    I’ll still be by to visit and party over the winter.

  29. Thanks for being such a great host! I enjoyed your weekly parties and seeing what others found. By the way, I love the pumpkin too!
