Thrifty Finds

Wow - it's Friday already and I am getting ready for another great weekend of yard sales...but I forgot to show you what I snapped up last weekend!

I was on my own for sales, McG went fishing with his Dad and brother.  He has really been a lucky charm for me, but I was hoping for some luck on my own.

I found a few things - and spent a total of $14.00

First up - an antique bevelled mirror - $5.00  (didn't really need a mirror, but for that price I wasn't leaving it there - you never know when a mirror might come in handy)  It's a bit dusty - but I was anxious to get my pictures taken!!

A garden plaque - 25 cents!

A lamp - black candle stick base and gold shade with black trim - $1!!  I asked if it was working and they said it was - it even had a working bulb in it and it is a touch lamp tri-lite! -  BONUS SCORE!!

A purple purse, brand new, with the tags still on - $2!  I picked this up for my daughter, who at age 23, still loves purple!

A wooden sign - $1 - I was excited to find this...needing something for along the fence on the side of the garage...

I got it hung as soon as I got home - no wasting time on this one!

and finally - the find of the day...drum roll please!!!

A 4 ft brand new piece of counter-top for...wait for it....$5!!
McG has been wanting a place to clean his fish and is going to build himself a fish cleaning station in the garage, because I don't want him doing it in the kitchen!  It was marked $10 but when
I asked if they would take $5 they said YES - another great SCORE!!

We are set to visit some friends at their campground about an hour's drive from here this weekend.
The campground is having a YARD SALE!!
I am hoping that my lucky streak continues - I'll let you know next week
Until then!!
