Treasures this Week

I hit a few yardsales and the Briarwood Flea Market, which I went to last year and found just a few things this week. From one yardsale, I found this incomplete set of green acrylic handled flatware for $1.  I figured for that price, these would be great for a picnic or eating outdoors.

At another house, I spotted this cute folding bamboo table tray.  He had it marked at $10, but when I admired it, he quickly said he’d take $5.  How could I pass it up for that?  I didn’t!  This could come in handy on the porch when we are entertaining out there.At one house, I found these cute Michael Kors lime green wedge shoes for $2 and some Gap white cotton cropped pants for $1.  With all my lime green, these shoes will come in handy.  I wore the pants to church today so that’s why they look wrinkled already. They are a nice crisp cotton/spandex and fit very nicely.  I love paying $1 for pants.

At the flea market, I found the vintage bullseye block for $2, and the small plate for 35 cents. The taller Floraline vase was from another yardsale and was only 25 cents.

So, that was my week!  As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I’m definitely going to have a yardsale of my own sometime soon, probably September, so you Birmingham girls who are interested in stopping by, let me know.  I have to clean out some of my stash.

I’ve also been working on wallpapering and painting in my office nook this past week and it is looking SO gorgeous!  I’ll be sharing that with you this week too.

And finally, the winner of the Arise Shine $50 giveaway is Kim #59, who said: “The trust charm is my favorite! I would also like to have the Children are a Heritage of the Lord boy charm.”  I’ve emailed Kim to tell her the good news.

  1. No thrifty treasures this week from me, but you sure did find some nice things.

    My mom is restoring an old house and is miss a few of the bullseye pieces that go above doors. Let me know if you’d be willing to sell it because if it is the right size, she could use it.

  2. Rhoda, you always find such great bargains. The eating utensils and the white objects are my favs – unbelievable prices! Linda

  3. I need to start going garage sailing again. I’m missing out on goodies!

  4. That folding table is divine!!! I like the vase a lot too. The yard sales around here have been fading b/c of the heat, and the ones that are out aren’t sporting much. 🙁 Thanks so much for hosting, Rhoda!

  5. Wow Rhoda, you found some gorgeous things for amazing prices! Love the lime green shoes, what a lucky find!

  6. HI RHODA!


    Thanks for this event Rho!

  7. Great flatware. To find any sets for a dollar is good, to find this fun colored complete set is fantastic.
    Had to laugh that the church sale would charge more for the block. Most volunteers would have no idea of value.

  8. $2 Michael Kors??? WOW!!!! What a fabulous deal!!

  9. Love the lime green wedges! I have a similar pair which I love! Great finds this week!

  10. Hi Rhoda! Great stuff! I especially love the bullseye block…can’t wait to see what yu will do with it! I hope you are having a great weekend!…hugs…Debbie

  11. Oh I really like that bamboo tray! Also the white vase and the architectural corner block. And the color of those lime green shoes is to die for. Thanks for hosting, once again! 🙂

  12. No treasures from me this week either, but I’m loving all of your finds! Those shoes are awesome, and I love the white vase…very stylish! I can’t wait to see your office! I haven’t done any big decorating in a while….been spending too much time behind the lens of my camera! (Check out my blog for my weekend photo shoot with Kathleen….I think I got some winners!)

  13. GREAT items. I love the green acrylic cutlery! I’m gonna need to keep my eyes open for a set. They would look great in a canning jar to use on the deck.

  14. Wow! Another great week for treasure hunting!
    Thanks so much for hosting!

  15. Hi Rhoda!
    Great finds…love the bullseye and the green wedges (reminds me…I need to get a pedicure). I didn’t hit any sales this week, but I did get a fantastic thrifty treasure!

  16. Love the shoes and the silverware, Rhoda! Matches my kitchen.


  17. That silverware is so unique! What a fun find. 🙂

  18. I linked up this week! 🙂

    You found some nice things. You can’t beat the price for the shoes and shorts. Nice!

    That table will come in useful too. Score!

  19. Those sandals are adorable! The little table was a deal and I just love that bullseye detail! The hubby has put my thrifting on hold until I work through all my other finds sitting in the garage – so I linked up a piece that I redid this weekend! Thanks for hosting!

  20. Great shoes! I love the architectural piece.

  21. Loving all the finds, Rhoda! That silverware is perfect for outdoor entertaining!


  22. I love the lime green wedges! The bamboo table is also fabulous and for $5.00…I wouldn’t have turned it down either. Thanks for hosting this great party!

  23. I have the same dish!!! I also love the shoes, they would go great with my dress that I got this week!!!! Thanks so much for hosting it is always a fun party.

    🙂 Michelle

  24. You scored some great deals this week Rhoda. I’m admiring that bamboo table you found…are you going to paint it or leave as is?

  25. Thanks for hosting again. I love your flea market finds.

  26. Rhoda,
    cool green shoes, and love the whites!

    thanks for hosting.

  28. Gotta love a bargain…I sure do!!! The best is that silverware…so pretty on the table on a summer day!!!

  29. I am your newest follower! I found you through Whisper Wood Cottage. I am a junking enthusiast, and I can’t wait to link up to your party. I was so excited to see that someone had created a party just for showing off your junking finds! Thanks!

  30. Girl! You got some great deals! $5.00 is my limit, so that table caught my eye right away.
    love the shoes, britches AND the white things!

  31. Rhoda, A very good morning! Do you believe I’ve not been a follower all this time? I so love to come and visit~ Now I am an official follower.
    You certainly found some lovely treasures! I LOVE the green flatware! I can just picture them in some fabulous tablescapes! Or in a mason jar on a shelf full of ironstone with some splashes of green.
    The bamboo table is so versital! Where are you going to use it?
    Finding bargains and giving a second (or 3rd, or 4th) life to something is such a thrill, isn’t it?
    This was a great way to start my day and my creative juices!
    Blessings, dear one!

  32. Hi Rhoda!
    Looks like you had loads of FUN!
    I would have fought you for that little bamboo table 🙂
    I hope my link qualifies–I am talking about finding things for cheap, cheap (at yard sales/thrift stores, etc…) then re-selling them on eBay to make $, be a stay-at-home mom, and still help bring $ in.
    Blessings on your day and thank you for letting me visit 🙂

  33. I love the floraline vase. I am a florist and I collect the vintage florist vases. I have that one and some really cute novelty ones too. I only scored the vintage chandelier that I posted about today. It was one of the best finds I have for the summer since I have been looking for one for my bedroom.

  34. Nice finds! All classic and timeless. My find shared this week was very thrifty, though not from a thrift. Hope it qualifies!

  35. A fun week of thrifting! I have the same set of green acrylic flatware.
    Have a wonderful day!

  36. Oh I just adore your bamboo table. I have two bamboo chairs and am constantly keeping an eye out for matching furniture. $5 was a fab price. Great finds this week. Oh by the way it was lovely to hear that you and Sandy (Reluctant Entertainer) are friends. Sandy and I have known each other since we both started blogging. What a small world eh?

  37. Great bargains. Love the little bamboo tray.

    Come visit … I have a giveaway!!!!

  38. I love the bamboo table–lots of possibilities there.

  39. I am in Gardendale / Morris…so I will definitely come to your garage sale. I can only imagine the wonderful goodness you will have there!

  40. Hi Rhoda!
    Wonderful finds — LOVE the wedges. And my hat is off to you that you can wear them!
    The bamboo table is adorable, just charming, and SUCH a bargain.
    Thanks for hosting!

  41. great finds! i cannot believe the great deals you get on things. love the shoes!

  42. The wooden rosette is my fav. Thanks for hostessing!

  43. Good for you! Believe it or not, I just put acrylic flatware like that on my wish list–here’s hoping I’ll be as lucky as you in finding some at a sale! And that little bamboo table is just sweet.

    It’s fun seeing what thrifty treasures you pick up! Hope your August is off to a great start. 🙂

  44. I just love those green shoes! Pants too! Adore the table, Yes great for you porch! You are finding wonderful Treasures for your porch! The flatware is great! Wonderful Treasures and Bargains! I took a look at your wallpaper in the office, it so beautiful!
