Thrifty Treasures: For $27 and Change

Picture 001

It was indeed a good yardsale Saturday and I had a lot of fun scoping out a few deals.  Found this chair, which I’m not sure where I’ll put (probably one guestroom), but it called my name at $15 and I think it will look fabulous with a coat of paint and some new snazzy fabric, don’t you?Picture 002

It’s got a great shape to it, not too fancy, but not plain either.  Picture 003

Best of Earth Wind and Fire takes me back a few years, $1.

This mug is extra large with a wide mouth and I got it for my hubby, Peter. He loves birds too and it was only 25 cents. Picture 007

Love this black wall sconce that I scored for $5.  It was originally wired to be mounted on the wall, but she had added a plug in to it, so I can hang it on the wall and plug it in.  So cute, I couldn’t pass it up. Picture 010

This nice sized Fitz and Floyd Christmas serving piece was $5.  F&F always makes pretty dishware.  Picture 012

And last, but not least, these pretty and colorful old books were 25 cents each. I picked them mainly for their colors (great for stacking on shelves), but I love the old Picture story Bible.

So, now it’s YOUR turn for the party this week! What have YOU found lately. Add your link to the Linky list and remember our guidelines for the party:

  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. Last year, I can’t tell you how many links I had to fix. This year I might get mean & delete them, so 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.

I’m trying that new picture linky on this party and I think it is self-explanatory, but let me know if you have any problems. I think having pics will be fun!

  1. Hi Rhoda,
    Great finds. You always get the good stuff! That chair has good lines, it will look terrific made over. I love the lamp, too! And who can resist old books? Not me! You found some really nice stuff.
    Have a great week,
    Heidi – Heart and Home

  2. Wow, Rhoda, that chair is just wonderful. Can’t wait to see what you do to make it fabulous.

    Love the books and the sconce. Looks like a great garage sale day. Sales are popping up around here too. Hope to get out there and find some bargains soon.

  3. Love EWF!!

  4. Just came back to tell you that I saw your response, and I have an entire room full of stuff (like your chair). My excuse is that I’m buying it for my NEXT house, which I don’t anticipate us moving into for several years, but I’ll have the stuff when I NEED it! Keep sailin’ and thrifting, you find the best stuff. Liked those books you picked up too. I’ve been looking for some green ones, but have had no luck. Can’t wait to see what you find next week.

  5. Great finds! Love the wall sconce.

    Can’t wait for garage sales around here!

    -Found you on House of Hepworths, so glad I did!

  6. Rhoda, I can’t wait to see what you do to that chair. I know it will be fab! Also, LOVE the books. I passed up some today that I may go back and buy (not nearly as inexpensive as yours! – $2 each) :omda

  7. Great finds Rhoda! Each one is sweet! I love the chair and can’t wait to see what you do with it!

    Thanks for hosting such a great party! I’m so happy to participate – it’s been a while! 🙂

    Take care. Have a great week!

  9. sweet chair! can’t wait to see what you do with it!

  10. I love the arms on the chair. Thanks for hosting again. I’m excited for a great thrifting season.

  11. Congrats and high 5 on the Fitz and Floyd…. that stuff ain’t cheap but it soooo beautiful!

  12. I like the new photo linky. I am so glad garage/yard sale time is here again. My renter wants your chair for her house.

  13. I’m in love with those vintage books; especially, the Bible! I collect old Bibles and Hymnals so it really speaks to me! 🙂 Can’t wait to see what you do with the chair!!!!

  14. I’m loving your blog!

  15. I want to go yard-saling with you!

  16. Love those books! I have a weakness for books among other vintage things!
    Thanks for sharing and hosting!

  17. I found your blog while searching for some help with electric wall sconces (like the one you have above that you scored for $5.00). I need some help & I’m searching high and low.

    My problem: I bought 2 wall sconces (each of them have 3 candle light sockets (wired individually), a back plate (with 1 wire attached) and a PLUG in style wire and a zillion crystal pieces. My stupid mistake was buying them from a re-seller on ebay. They were suppose to come assembled and they did not. Yeah, I know…I fought with the seller over and over, because I was assured by ordering them with a plug in style wire specifically, all I would have to do – plug them in. NOT!!!! and they didn’t send me ANYTHING as far as instructions for assembly. Is there any tips you can give about your own sconce wiring as to how to begin to put these together? thank you, Margaret at [email protected]
