The dog days of summer are heating up and this is when I start to lose my enthusiasm for getting up early on Saturday and heading out. I did hit a few this week, but the neighborhood sales are long gone. Now it’s house to house to see what is out there. I really didn’t get much and some of them weren’t even worth taking pics, but here’s one to share.
These cute little green Christmas serving pieces were only 10 cents each and that’s really the only reason I got them. The green color is a pretty pear green. So, I figured for 60 cents, I can use them for the Holidays this year.
So, this week wasn’t much to write home about. I did buy an extra caulk gun for 50 cents, a Calphalon non-stick pan for $2, and a square box hose reel for $1. See, not too exciting. But, that’s OK. Every week can’t be a huge score.
Susan, from Love Where You Live, did a little feature today on me and my new porch space, so go on over and say hello to her. She’s a fun gal with a fun job. She scouts out homes for magazine shoots, wouldn’t you love that job?!
EDITED to ADD: And last, but not least, the winner of the Scentsy giveaway is: Renae, who I’ve already contacted by email. Thanks to all of you for signing up for that. If you didn’t win, I have a new sponsor with a Scentsy shop, so I hope you’ll check her out too, button to the right.
Now it’s YOUR turn! What have YOU found lately? Add your link to the Linky list and remember our guidelines for the party:
- 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! 🙂
- 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.
- 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.
Let’s have some fun this week with the Thrifty Treasure’s party!
There will be neighborhood or villagewide sales again come late summer, just before school starts again.
However people are still clearing out. Thrift stores around me are overflowing. Sadly, I was unable to make it to “Crazy Days” this Saturday where an entire store was half off! Maybe it was for the best. After all, it is the thrill of the hunt, right? I would have been tempted by cheap.
I do appreciate your 10 cent dishes. Not just for Chrsitmas.

Helloooo Miss Rhoda! I’ve missed you. I can’t believe your time at the ranch with PW. What an amazing opportunity~you deserve it. 🙂 I have been in a yard sale rut this summer. I still don’t know the area that well and don’t have a yard sale buddy yet and I miss it. I’ve found myself more at the Goodwill and the prices there just aren’t as good as yard sales. Thanks for hosting~

Melissa, I’ve been in a similar rut. We moved to a new area a few months ago, and I still don’t know it well enough to feel comfortable going to many yard sales. There are two Goodwill stores around here with OK prices, but yard sales are infinitely better and there’s an opportunity to negotiate with the seller. I feel your pain 🙂

Getting up early has been so hard lately! I really haven’t had a lot of motivation either, especially since it has been so hot. I do love the Christmas plates and I do love the AWESOME deal that you got. I hope you have a great week and thanks for hosting!!!
Those plates are adorable!!!
Thanks for hosting the linky. I love seeing everyone’s treasures!
Rhoda, Thanks so much for visiting my blog and entering my giveaway! I hope that you will come back for another visit soon.
I love your Christmas pieces. They are perfect to use for individual hors d’oeuvres plates. My find of the week was three Ball canning jars filled with beach glass from the shores of Lake Michigan at an estate sale… $2 each.
