My favorite thrifty finds today came from Hobby Lobby. Here's what I found...
The pears were only $1.20 each! I see paint in their future - something like the green one here...
The tall thingys were $4 and $8. These look like the perfect candidates for a gorgeous chippy paint technique that I saw blogged about, if I could only find it again! I'll probably take the easy way out & paint them then add some glazing. Either way, they have a lot of potential. My total came to $17....original price for all this would have been $78!! Yay for 80% off! And double yay for Hobby Lobby gift cards!!!
I made out pretty well at the thrift store, too.
The candlesticks, at $1.50 each, will be spray painted and added to my decorating stash. Like-new Levis for my hubby, a new pair of Liberty's for my little country boy ( he's six, and recently decided he liked his overalls when his little sister told him, "You look like a MAN in those!"). I also got a new Waverly dust ruffle for our bed. All that was $6.88 each - a bit steep for me 'cause I prefer yard sale prices. Very good prices compared to retail, though. The Nautica khakis were $1.50 or so.
I enjoyed sharing my finds. I can't wait for yard sale season to start - hopefully that'll be this weekend! Then we should have some really thrifty finds!
Thanks, Linda, for letting us party at your place!
