It's about time I blog about some of my thrifty finds to show you. I haven't been sharing my finds lately (I'm lazy) but, believe me, it doesn't mean I'm not hitting the thrifts stores. If you saw my basement and garage, which is my dumping grounds, you would know I'm at the thrift stores way more often than I should be.
I paid $2.99 at Value Village for this great card catalogue filing box. It cleaned up great and I gave it to Mike to use for storage for his hobby. Is it bad that I want to steal it back for my craft room?!!
This table cloth really is super cute in person and in great shape. It's too small for my dining room table but I think I'll probably use it this summer when we have dinner on the deck. It was only $0.50 cents.
I bought this pan in December and I'm kicking myself that I didn't buy both that were at Goodwill as it's very heavy and good quality. I used it many times to make Pull Apart loaves as neighbour and friend gifts for Christmas but I had to keep waiting for it to cool down before I could put the next loaf in. It's so nice that it is one solid piece and won't leak like a normal Angel Food cake pan does. For $3.99 it is well worth what I paid.
This is just some miscellaneous items. Cookie cutters. Candy thermometer. Cute green dish and clear dish. I think this probably ranged from $0.50 cents to a dollar.
At Value Village they have a wall of plastic bags that are filled with stuff and junk. I bought these items in one of those bags for $1.99 because I wanted that green lime squeezer. the rest of the items already went into my garage sale/donation box. I had no idea what that orange and red thing was but I Googled and it's some kind of fruit scraper. Weird.
This photo shows zippers that I picked up at the Mennonite store for my friend Carla. The pic has 30 in it but I bought her 100 and she loved them. You can see all of them here on her blog. They were only $0.25 cents each.
But I would have to say that I'm the lucky one!! Look at this gorgeous camera strap she made for me. LOVE it so much!! And that sweet little change purse is going to be well loved too.
OK....Last but not least I have to share with you my absolute best and amazing deal. I went to a thrift store a few weeks ago that I normally never go to. I'm so glad I did as I found this pasta maker. For......$5.99!!! SERIOUSLY. $5.99. I cannot believe it. I found out online that this red one is exclusive to William Sonoma.
You won't believe what the regular price was.....Check it out!! $100.00 dollars? Now that is by far the deal of 2012! But, the year is still young and you just never know what else I'll find. Heehee.
I'll be back with more soon. I have some new favorite finds to share.
