I’m joining three parties this week to showcase my bargains.
Please stop over to visit Leigh, Rhoda, and Linda by clicking on their buttons. Their participants love to show off their thrifting finds just as much as I do!
I knew it probably wouldn’t be the best week for yard sales, with the holiday and all, but I took a chance anyway. I wasn’t wrong. Most of the sales were pretty much a bust for me. They just didn’t have what I go out looking for.
And I think I must have put 150 miles on the car over the course of the past three days, traipsing from one town to the next! One saving grace was that I filled up the car and only paid $2.53 per gallon of gas. Does THAT qualify as a bargain?!
This post will show you the bags of bargains I found at a sale being held only 5 miles down the road from me. It was a treasure trove of goodies and I now am asking myself , “WHY didn’t I hit this place first on Thursday?!” I drove down to it on Saturday while the homeowners were packing up the leavings. They kindly let me poke through their garage and driveway as they boxed things up. There was glassware galore, some furniture, and some great antiques. They told me that anything I could fit into a plastic bag from the grocery store would be a dollar.! A dollar!!! Well, I didn’t want to appear too greedy, so I made some selective glassware selections and popped them into three bags.
I just loved the delicate base on these dessert cups. I found six of them. They will be perfect to use when serving pudding or fresh fruit.
Look at the details on the base of the cups.
I also found these dessert dishes, which are a bit heavier than the last four and have a more traditional pattern.
Then there are these four sundae scoopers. I think I see hot fudge sundaes for dessert tonight!
I can use this simple glass serving plate for a multitude of things. A cake, a pie, some cookies. Hmmmmm….does that mean I have start baking?
Check out this coffee server. It has a ribbed design and is so tall!! It was sitting on a ribbed plate and originally priced only $2 for the set. Now that would have been a bargain in itself, but tossed into a bag with some other plates, it qualified as a major bargain!
What a sweet pattern, don’t you think?
Something drew me to this little green pitcher and bowl. It’s tiny, maybe six inches tall, or so. Its companion piece of a small covered dish is off to the right.
So there are my $3.00 worth of thrifting bargains for the week! Not a bad haul, don’t you agree?
I’ll have the rest of my weekend finds posted soon. I hit a sale held out in the country 47 miles from me! Nancy had some great stuff on display at her country farm near St. Paris, Ohio. Look for a post later in the week.
