Sometimes you just need a little retail therapy. Fortunately for me, there was a yard sale in my travels today to provide the salve I needed to soothe my thrifting soul.
I decided to stop by just to take a look around. It was late in the day so I really didn’t expect they’d have too much left. They had great “signage” so I figured they would have had a brisk business early.
Lucky for me there were still some interesting things left and not long after I arrived they announced that most things would be half off. I quickly scurried back to grab up what at full price I wasn’t sure I would buy, but at half price I was right on it.
This wreath was the first thing I picked up. It has found a place on my back gate for the time being.
My daughter loves to bake and so when I saw these old bread pans, I thought of her. At 1.00 each, they were a little high for my thrifting senses. Once the half price light went on, I scooped them up.
I know there will be some loaves of pumpkin bread in the near future of these two pans.
This cookbook and music cd were in perfect condition in their original box. With the half price discount, I paid $1. They look interesting. I love to read cookbooks and this one comes with its own background music!
And on a whim, I picked up this little bear. He is called The Byron Bear. He is so dark that you can’t see his eyes. He was marked down to $1 also.
So for $3.50 I had quite a lovely time shopping and found some bargains. Just the salve I needed!
I hope to visit the parties at Knick of Time’s Knick of Time Tuesday, Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays at Coastal Charm, Today’s Thrifty Treasures at Southern Hospitality, Thrifty Things Friday at The Thrifty Groove, and The Penny Worthy Project at Hey, What’s for Dinner Mom?
Hope you have had a great week filled with found treasures that soothed you, too.
