First of all, Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads in your life! I wished my Dad Happy Father’s Day greetings on the phone and will be seeing him in person real soon, just in time for his birthday in July.
This weeks finds range from the “practical” to the “I just really want that” category. I’m sure all you garage sale shoppers understand that perfectly, right?!
I hit a small neighborhood sale near my house and found a few things there. First up is one of those outdoor plastic boxes. I have been wanting one of these to store my swing and chair cushions under the deck, so I don’t have to keep dragging them back and forth from the garage every time I want to sit out there. This way, they will be high and dry in the box and out of the weather until I need them. The light weight planter came from the same sale (and looks better than this pic shows) and I got both for $15. A really good deal, I thought. Those big boxes retail new for about $50-60 and I wasn’t about to pay that.
In another neighborhood, I found this cute little green and white plate for $1. Don’t know what I’ll do with it yet, but it was too cute to pass up. It’s marked Japan ironstone on the back.
This pair of iron candleholders was $2, they’re really heavy and I love fleur de lis. Where will they go? I haven’t a clue yet.
And they have a cute little crystal on the ends.
Only one clothing item this week, this cute little lime and brown top from NY & Co. was $1 and perfect for summer and I wore it to church this morning with a chocolate brown skirt.
Then I went down to Homewood to a sale that sounded really fun. He was selling out a store with lots of goodies, old and new. I found the above 3 things for $5 there, which I was happy with. Those are really old blue Ball quart jars. And I just loved the aqua vase too. I’ve managed to find quite a few pieces of aqua pottery since I decided to add that color to my palette. Now, on to the really fun find….
One of my readers emailed me about an estate sale and I went back for this set of silverplate flatware after seeing it on Friday. It’s Rogers King James pattern (which I found out is not made anymore) and I got it for $100. It’s a really nice set and I will treasure it forever. I’ve always admired this pattern and used to have a pattern similar from Macy’s. I’ll continue to use my other stainless everyday and this will be for special occasions and at 16 place settings, a very nice find.
I have always loved the shell pattern. So, this is the “I just really want that” find, did you figure that out yet?!
This is a classic and I’ll enjoy it for years to come. These pics aren’t the greatest, but you get the idea how pretty they are.
So, how did YOU do this week? You all know how to play by now, so please add your “permalink” to Mr. Linky, linking back to YOUR thrifty post this week.

Wow, Rhoda! As usual, I am impressed by your finds. I ended up just stopping at Salvation Army this weekend b/c the weather was so bad here in the 'Burg. Found a couple things, but nothing like what you scored! 😉
The flatware set is gorgeous–a real treasure! I love the aqua vase, and the plastic box is a good, sensible buy. 🙂
Thanks for hosting yet again! 🙂
Once again, you found great stuff! I love your new flatware. I just pulled some jars like yours out of my storage area to fill with shells for summer. Enjoy your new things!

When I find dishes that are too cute to pass up, I'll buy them and use them as serving dishes. I get to enjoy some cute patterns without buying a whole set of dishes…which I don't have room for!
Thanks for hosting this event! I look forward every week to see what everyone has found. I'm trying not to shop but am just looking! Look what I found in someone's trash! FREE!

I absolutely LOVE the silverplate set! That will become an heirloom for your family, I'm sure. And that green checked plate, well green is my favorite color…Lucky you with such great "finds".

Those candle holders would look so cute out on your outdoor sitting area.
that was a great deal for the outdoor storage box!
Great finds – especially on the silverware. i did not go to sales this weekend. It was just to hot.

Rhoda, I love the blue vase. It is adorable. I also love the storage box for your pillows. I have the same problem having to go in to the garage to get mine. Anyway, I posted about my daughters new room with garage sale finds from a couple of weeks. I hope that I did it right. Thanks for letting us all join.

The Tattered Cottage says
Hope you had a wonderful anniversary 🙂 Love the flatware and what a great price! I picked up a candle sconce with the fleur de lis design on it also this week. Seeing those vintage Ball jars makes me want to find mine and put them out 🙂
Thanks for hosting Thrifty Treasures. I just started by first blog so I could play along!
Shari @ My Cottage of Bliss says
You always find such wonderful bargains but the flatware has got to be the deal of the century! Love it!
PS. Happy belated anniversary! You are still practically newlyweds. 🙂
