Past 2 Weeks: Thrifty Finds MD/CT/ME:

Here were my recent thrifty finds from MD/CT/ME (feel free to click on the pictures to enlarge them)

I am a sucker for baskets. I am not even going to post all of the ones I have (atleast not today anyway).
Basket from Savers- pretty expensive but I liked it- it was $5.99:

this too was expensive but I loved it- good thing I got it for $6.00 at Goodwill cause I saw a larger one for $15.00 at Mardens which that one was normally $49.00 at a major department store!

think I paid $3.00 for this at Savers-- LOVE IT!!!

I was hoping to put this tall rose box on my book shelf but it's too tall. originally from The Christmas Tree Shop, I bought it at Goodwill for $1.00:

I have been trying hard to find pillows for the couch, this'll do, it was $2.99 from Savers and looks handmade- it matched my livingroom and is slightly weird- it has "me" stitched on the front, and the pictures will explain it: (PS I live in Maine, as much as I hate it, the abreviation was all too appropriate).

a bag of stars for .80 Goodwill:

and now I am saving the best for last. I was cashing out with a budget of $28.00 (most pictured above from a specific Goodwill trip) and this guy was sitting on the counter. I asked, "Is he claimed, or is he for sale?" Lady told me he was for sale. I just knew I had to have him. I went outside and asked Gabe if I could go over my limit and buy him for $25.00 and explained that it was a black statue. He had a funny look on his face but said it was fine. I went inside, scooped him up, went to the girl and said, "I know this isn't a yardsale, but would you do less for him?" She said, "I can go $20.00 on him". I said, "SOLD!!" and thanked her a million times. This is a carved wooden statue of a black man with his jeans rolled up, and two things in his hands. The detail is INCREDIBLE! When I came outside with the ear to ear grin, he looked at me and said he thought it was going to be the little black guy holding the latern statue. My pup was scared of the statue for 4 minutes, growling and cowarding away from it, but then he gave it a kiss and I drove home happily with him between my legs for 13 hours!
He stands taller than my knees, and I am 5'4".

  1. First - I have to say your thrift stores are much nicer than mine. You could point out a major flaw in something and say that it is priced exactly the same as perfect, and you'd get, "then don't buy it." They would rather throw something away. Don't you love when something is clearly marked Dollar Tree and GW prices it at $3.99.
    Good catch on the Love Me pouch.
    And whatever that chicken thing is, she would have been going home with me too.

  2. You seem to have done MUCH better at Savers than I did! Maybe I'll have to give another location a try? They seemed to be so pricey though! You found some great things!

  3. I love the cell phone holder! I wish I could find something like that. I always forget to plug mine it in at night, but I think that little guy would be a great reminder. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I hope you have a great week!
