I Came, I Saw, I Thrifted

It has been a long time since I've been to the thrift store.  I don't need another thing here!  But my husband had business to transact a couple of blocks from "my" store, so I figured a visit wouldn't hurt.  It didn't.  Our total bill was $2.17 (tax included), and for that amount I got the tin shown above and a matching bowl, a jumbo sized Upwords game (one of our favorite word games), the cloth napkins and a salt/pepper set shaped like grapes. 
To see a few more tins in my collection, visit my "Thrifty Style" blog.    And if you have any extras collecting dust around YOUR house, I'd be happy to take them off your hands.


  1. I loved the title to your post Rebecca, and it has been a while since I have thrift shopped too. I need to do something about that!
    I love tins. I have a few myself. I will have to check out the rest of your collection!
    Love Di ♥

  2. When my dear friend came into town a few
    days ago from Indiana, we went to every
    thrift store around Asheville. We had a
    great time and found lots of pretty and
    useful items. We both love pillows and
    found several to freshen up our living
    rooms and dens. We also found very nice
    pictures suitable for nearly any room in
    the house. We even found stylish new
    dressy jackets and pretty shirts to wear
    around the house or out to dinner.
    I love shopping the thrifty way!
    Love your new blog design.

  3. I love how you find such good bargains at thrift stores, honestly I sure could use a few shopping lessons from you Rebecca....:-)Hugs

  7. Now that's what I call thriftin'!! I don't often get bargains like that, and if I do it is at yard or estate sales! Great finds!

  8. I love the comment "...I don't need another thing here.."....but you know what, my friend...that never stops me when I find a bargain! I love your finds. You got a LOT for your money. Great shopping, Rebecca.

  11. Oh boy, do I love a bargain! I tell my husband often: It's not about the kill; it's about the hunt.

    Looks like you found some mighty good huntin'!
