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.

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.

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

I need to start going garage sailing again. I’m missing out on goodies!
Amanda @ Serenity Now says
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!

Wow Rhoda, you found some gorgeous things for amazing prices! Love the lime green shoes, what a lucky find!
Kelee Katillac says
LOVE THE FLATWARE AND SHOES. THEY COULD BE FOR A GREEN PICNIC PARTY!
Thanks for this event Rho!
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.
$2 Michael Kors??? WOW!!!! What a fabulous deal!!
Leslie Wagner says

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
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! 🙂
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!)
Charlene Austin says
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.

Wow! Another great week for treasure hunting!
Thanks so much for hosting!
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!
Love the shoes and the silverware, Rhoda! Matches my kitchen.
Jessica @ This Blessed Life says
That silverware is so unique! What a fun find. 🙂
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!
