Last weeks Thrift finds.

There were just a few garage sales listed in our local paper to take place this weekend. But we did not go to any of them. It was raining here Saturday morning, so I guess it is a good thing there were not many sales scheduled anyway.

I did go to a few thrift stores during the week.

Nothing is too glamorous but I like everything I found.

6 yards of heavy blue and black toile - $6

assorted brown napkins for Jimmy - he liked them and they should be perfect for law school apartment

really cute vintage fabric - about 2 yards long. It does have a few rust spots that will need to be worked around. But I think the animals are just too funny.

world's cutest skunks

seal and penquin

assorted craft supplies - I've been wanting some styrofoam balls to cover with fabric or ribbon to put in apothecary jars too.
2 more pears for my huge pear collection - I think I have 4 now.

like new Tupperware Fridge Stackable- $1 at Salvation Army, they sell for $17.50 brand new.
This will be great for all the sandwiches we eat in the summer.

For lots more garage sale treasures and thrift shop deals, go to Rhoda's Party.

  12. Rhonda,

    I love the toile and vintage print fabric. A girl can never have too much fabric, can she?


  13. Love all the fabric! I've been dying to get my hands on some Styrofoam...good find!

  14. Wow! What great finds! I of course love that toile but the other fabric is sooo cute! What cute little animals. I love it when I find craft stuff at the thrift! Styrofoam balls are expensive so that was a REALLY good find and you can do so much with them!
