Thrifty Treasures 4-29

Back with another Thrifty Treasures feature and y’all found some really cool things out there. I hope to be back on my game again in the Fall, when I might actually need something and can get out to the yardsales again.  Until I get in my house, I’m not at all sure I need a whole lot to fill in since I’ve got boxes and boxes all packed up waiting for the move to the new house.

For some reason, dishes and furniture made my list this week, as well as a few other eclectic finds. You just never know what you will find out there in thrifting!

ceramic animals

Budget Design Girl found these adorable French style white ceramic farm animals at her local Goodwill for 99 cents each!  How cool will these be in her kitchen?

Eclectically Vintage

A side table for $6?!  Yes, indeed, Kelly scored this one at a sale.  It will be the perfect accent piece for a special spot in her house.


A gallery wall of blank frames is a fun way to fill up that empty space.  Add a pop of color and it really comes to life.  Megan found these at the Goodwill.


Live Love DIY helped her friend makeover this old rocking chair that she already owned.  With a modern fabric and fresh paint job, this chair has a lot of life left in it.  I love this piece!

notesongs pyrex

Vintage pyrex is always a great find and these old pieces are so nice to have around for leftovers.  Sheila from Note Songs scored these pink beauties at her local thriftshop for $2.50 for all.  Deal!

Our Creative Life

Yardsales are the best place to find deals like this.  Darlene from Our Creative Life scored 2 of these for $7.50 each. They will be gorgeous when they are remade. I can see a modern fabric on them with no tufting on the back.  Hello gorgeous!


Italy, I love Italy!  And so does Barb at Grits and Glamour. She was out thrifting and found a whole set of Italian dishes for $135 and later found out that each plate sells for $65.  Her bloggy friends enabled her and talked her into going back and buying this set, after she originally passed it up because she didn’t need more dishes.  That never stops a blogger, right?!  And that’s what friends are for.

vintage kitchen jadeite mugs Parsimonia

She spotted these on a cart at Goodwill and Parsimonia is back with some frugal finds in these Firestone jadite mugs.  Always a winner!

salvage collection

A $30 Craigslist vanity gets an Annie Sloan paint wash along with a little golden glimmer from Grandma glam painter, Salvage Collection.  Lovely piece!

So, what did YOU find this week?

There are a TON of parties out there to highlight all your projects, so please let’s keep this one about thrifty finds that were bought 2nd hand! Not a great sale from the store, or a recipe, or just a plain project, but 2nd Hand finds only!

And please DO NOT go back in your archives to OLD posts and link up. Let’s keep this party fresh and current! If you have already shared your find in a previous party, DON’T share it again! Please, girls, I don’t want to have to delete links.

  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. 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. 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.

Again this year, I’ll be highlighting great finds from the party, so if you want your find highlighted, PLEASE link back to the party. Only those who link back will be considered for highlighting the next week. Thanks!

  1. Thanks for hosting, Rhoda! I picked some fun items mostly for my flower gardens!

  2. Rhoda – This is my first time linking to your party, and I’m excited that I have a $15 Habitat Restore chandelier to share. Thank you for hosting.


  3. Hi Rhoda! Oh, thank you so much for featuring my little Pyrex bowls. You’ve made my day! I’m partying with you again today with a Fire King find! 🙂
    Thank you so much for hosting your party!
    be a sweetie,
    Shelia 😉

  4. Hi Rhoda,
    So fun to see my little $6 dresser up in lights here! Love the jadeite and that pyrex!

    But I do think I outdid myself this week with my $20 yard sale scores – you won’t believe all the things I got! I’m still doing a little happy dance!

  5. Rhoda,
    Thanks for hosting. I used your regular button for the link, rather than your Today’s Thrifty Treasures button because I didn’t see it in time. Hope that’s okay.

  6. Great features. I love those ceramic animal hooks. How fun are they. I found a cow hook a while back. Love it by the kitchen sink. Thanks tons for hosting. Hugs, Marty

  7. Rhoda,

    I’m a newbie thrifter but find such great inspiration in your features and link-ups! Those jadite mugs? Love. The white farm animal hooks? Swoon. And I just know my blog friend Kelly will do some amazing things with her little blue table find …



  8. Oh thanks for mentioning my Italian dish score. It was a SCORE too huh?
    I have yet to do anything with them, but I have some plans rolling around my noggin. 🙂 Yes, thank goodness for encouraging aka enabling Bloggy Friends who talked me into going back. So glad they did. Have a blessed week, Barb

  9. Thanks for hosting! I’m excited to be linking up for the first time. Have a wonderful week!

  10. Marlee @ Marlee's Mississippi Mojo says:

    So happy you are back hosting Thrifty Treasures! I look forward to the fall when you start hitting the yard sales again.

  11. Jane@Bluebird 1959 says:

    Hi Rhoda! Thanks for hosting this fun party!!!!!! Love the features you chose. Jane

  12. Hi Rhoda, I so enjoy your parties. My small home seems to be getting smaller with my thifting finds. It’s hard to stop. The shop raises money to feed the community and I enjoy the thrill of the hunt.

  13. Oh Rhoda, I was so thrilled to find that you had featured my little white animal hooks! How fun to be in the spotlight!
    Thanks so much for hosting, I am linking up this week’s thrifty finds, and I am in love with the locker basket I found today!
    Thanks again for the feature! Love those jadite mugs too, btw!
    Have a fabulous week!

  14. Rhoda, these are wonderful features! Thanks so much for hosting this great party!! Have an awesome week!

  15. Rhoda,
    Thank you for such a wonderful feature of my rocking chair! You absolutely made my day today! Love that desk too! Thanks for all you do! (I know I’ve told you before, but I’ll tell ya again…you are such an inspiration!) xo ~ Virginia

  16. Thanks for featuring my gallery wall of Goodwill frames!

    Love that the thrifty treasures link up is back 🙂

  17. Hi Rhoda, my first time to link to your Thrifty Treasures. I found a a blue and white charger at an estate sale two weeks ago. I am thrilled because I saw how expensive they are in Amsterdam. A good reason I didn’t bring one home. A few other blue and white pieces too. Great features here. Wow, I love the Italian tureen. Thanks for hosting.

  18. I am inspired by all of these great ideas! My mind is swimming with older/used things I see and how they can work in my own home, thanks to all of these creative people! Buying new is so yesterday! 🙂

  19. Hi Rhoda, after linking up I wondered if my post was not quite right. My old doors are 2nd hand. One did come from an antique store and the other I bought at Roberts Crafts when they were going out of business. I got it for a great price. I found some great thrift items today. I will share them next week and they will be more what your party is about. Feel free to delete my link if you feel it isn’t appropriate.

  20. Thanks for hosting. I love thrifting.

  21. Thanks for hosting. I collect pyrex mostly and then fire king and paperweights as my main collectibles.

  22. Always like finding sites that show thrifted/2nd hand treasures. Thanks for hosting.

  23. So glad this is back! Thank you for hosting.

  24. the salvage collection says:

    so glad to have this party to look forward to again each week! thanks so much for the feature… what a boom to my blog!!

  25. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.

    Maybe you could space it out better?

  26. Hurrah, that’s what I was exploring for, what a material!
    existing here at this website, thanks admin of this web page.
