Some Deals This Week

Another hot day in Colorado.
We are headed to tying or even breaking 
the record for most days in the 90's in a year.
Not a record I'm looking to acheive!

 But, neither heat, snow, sleet,
humidity or lack thereof,
will keep me from hitting a thrift store, or two!

Mr. B needed to get his inner geek on
and asked me if I wanted to go with him
to the computer supply store.

Um, as lovely as that sounded (not)
I declined and went out thrifting instead!

My first stop was ARC Thrift.
Yellow tagged items were 50% 
so I keep my eyes mostly on those tags.

This year Mr. B & I decided
to try our hand at canning.
Last weekend we tried our hand at 
our first batch of pickles.
 Only problem was, all we had
were pint jars.
We really needed quart jars.
Well well well,
what did I spy right off?
 Yep, 6 Ball & Kerr quart canning jars!
With yellow tags!
.75 each.
Into the cart they went!
We just need to get new lids and rings and
we are set to go with another batch!

My addiction to dishes is still
hanging in there. 
But seriously, could you pass up 
four of these salad plates at $1.00 each?
 I could not!

And how perfect are these
vintage sugar & creamer?
$3.50 for the pair!
The only mark on them is USA.
Had to have them!
I've already set a table using the plates 
and the sugar & creamer.
Look for it later this week.

I must of done well because when I was 
checking out with my goodies, 
the cashier was oohing and aahing
as she wrapped everything up!

I then went to the Goodwill near our house.
They have just done a remodel
and it was heaven!
Wide aisles and clean shelves.

White tags were 50% off but when I saw this,
I had to have it.
 Cute frame that I plan to 
spray paint white.
There are enough sections to spell out
Summer, Winter, Autumn and Spring!
Yes, I paid the full $4.99 for it
but I feel it was worth that!
Next to catch my eye was this
cute pitcher.
You know me and lemons!
 I also paid full price but,
$1.99? C'mon! That's thrift store
pricing like the old days right?
The last item is helping to feed another
new addiction.
I've caught cloche fever!
And it fits perfectly!
And white tag so that means it was 
only $2.00!
In a short period of time,
Mr. B got his nerd fix and 
I got my thrifting fever cooled!
For this week anyway (wink)!

And don't forget to come by on Tuesday's
for the link party.

  1. I want to go thrifting with you! Awesome finds - I really love the pitcher.

  2. Cute finds. Love the rooster dishes and the cloche! xo

  3. Looks like you hit the jackpot with all your finds. If you need more jars, mention to your friends and family that you've started canning. People usually have those jars just sitting around in their attic and will give you some for free if they think they'll be put to good use. We have gotten some and given some away that way. Have a great week!

  4. haha!! Cute finds Kathe! Oh man I hope you stay cool.. you worked that Thrift Store and Stole great deals! That frame is going to look great!

  5. Ha Ha love how you said Nurd fix. Sounds like you had a lovely time. Great finds too. xxoo

  6. Came over from Sweet Sharing with Kayla. Great finds and the prices at your Goodwill are lower than ours! Love the frame and the birds. i am getting cloche fever in a small way. I bought a cheese dome for fifty cents to start with :>D

  7. If you know anyone that likes Classico Spagetti Sauce their jars are great canning jars to recycle. Hmmm, don't see any Candlewick but great scores anyway. Love the rooster plates.

  8. Great finds Kathe. Can't wait to see the yellow creamer and sugar in a table setting.

  9. Oh my, don't you just love a great thrifting day like that? I wish the prices could go back to where they once were. But they're still good, right?! Thanks for sharing with us, I love going along on (virtual) thrift store shopping trips. Hugs ~ Mary

  10. Kathe your thrifting luck was with you this weekend! AWESOME finds. Yes I would have bought those plates and I have a set of creamer/sugar like that only in green. We are so much alike!!

    Enjoy your week Kathy and take care.
