Those Thrifty Finds

Wow, thank you ALL for showing up for the giveaway. Ya’ll sure wanted you some pretty glasses and I can’t say that I blame you. I’m so glad you enjoyed My Sparrow and took a look around, some beautiful things in her shop, for sure.   So, now for the giveaway winner:   Megan with Cottage Bluebird is our winner! Megan, please email me and send me your mailing address and I’ll pass your info on to Christina, so you can get those beautiful tumblers.


It wasn’t a terribly exciting yardsale weekend, but I found a few useful things, like these green acrylic glasses for 25 cents each.  I think they match that pitcher I found recently too.


Always on the lookout for good books, this is one I haven’t read by one of my fave authors.  I may save it for our beach trip that’s coming up in September.  There’s nothing better than sitting on the beach reading a good book. We decided to wait til school starts and take our beach trip later this year.


And I love to find workout clothes in great condition for cheap.  These 3 Nike workout tops were $1 each, much better than paying even TJ Maxx prices and these are all in near perfect condition. I will put them to good use very soon. IMG_6209And last for this week, an Eddie Bauer denim skirt for $3.  I have a few Eddie Bauer pieces and they are very well made and great quality.  Just my size too.  They all got washed in the washing machine as soon as I got home and then into my closet.

So, that’s it for me this week.  Oh, and remember that Sid Dickens tile I found a couple weeks ago for $3??  Sold it on Ebay for $147, quite a turn around, don’t you think?

I’ll have a few more posts this week and then we are heading up to my parent’s house in NC for a few days.  Eating veggies and visiting.  I hear tell we are having a fish fry with homemade ice cream one day.  Yippee! 🙂

How about YOU?  Did you get out and about this weekend and find any treasures.  You know the drill!

So, get ready to share your treasures too.  Remember our guidelines for Mr. Linky parties:

  2. Please add a link back to THIS post, so that all your readers can find the party and join in or at least read about all the fun that everyone else had, or I’ll have to delete those too.
  3. If you come back & your link is deleted, it’s because your link was incorrect (and I couldn’t identify it) OR you didn’t link back to this party. Please try again!

  1. Rhoda,
    Thank you for hosting this fun weekly event! You found some terrific workout clothes, very cute tops! Love that denim skirt, it looks like a Liz Claiborne one I wear.

  2. Just love that denim skirt!!! For $3… Wow! Great find!

  3. Hi Rhoda,

    I love your Thrifty finds Mondays! I linked up today and even did your lamp shade tutorial and linked that back here too. It was so easy I just loved doing it! Now I need help with what to do next for the lamps though. any tips would be great, I put my website directly back to the the actual post.


  4. Hi Rhoda, you’ll have to check out my finds if you have time:) All day long I kept thinking, “hmm, now what would Rhoda do with this??!!” Hilarious. Keep up the great ideas!!


  5. Hi Rhoda,
    Thanks so much for coming by my beach house chic dining room. It was so much fun to do.
    I always have a hard time waking up early on week day mornings to walk with my neighbors, but come Saturday mornings, I’m up at 7 a.m., fresh as a daisy ready to hit the garage sales. … hmmmm…. Great finds for you this weekend and good for you for using Ebay to make a little greeen!

  6. Thanks for hosting. Love the glasses and the skirt. Sooo cute! Awesome sale on the tiles. Congrats!

  7. I have read or listened to every one of Grishams books, I truly enjoyed them all and I don’t like to be a spoil-sport, but The Appeal was my least favorite -and if I say more it will give away the ending.

    I do like your denim skirt – what a deal.

  8. Love the skirt and glasses! Great finds, Rhoda! Quick decorating question. I have a small side table I want to paint black. Do you prefer spray paint or just painting it with a brush? What have you found that works best?

  9. I love the green glasses and congrats on the nice sale too!!

    The sports bras were a fab deal as well!

  10. I added mine! I hope it works! Love your blog!

  11. I think we were friends in another life. I always take a John Grisham book to the river every summer.


  1. […] you will be using the item inside. Take After picture! I’m linking this little beauty up to Today’s Thrifty Treasures, and Metamorphosis Monday. Make sure to check out all of the other great finds and […]
