Thrifty Thursday

Hi Friends…

FAQ time ~ I get asked a lot how I do so well at the goodwills. Well… it’s simple. I go every-single-day. I have an hour lunch and 2 Goodwills in my town so I just go all the time. That's my secret. Not much of a secret really but that’s it. GOing more gives you a better chance of nabbing the good stuff before someone else gets to it.

Lets have a look at this weeks treasures…

Snowman. Awwwww.


Cute box. 


A box for a Christmas gift, a wood pear and a lil brown jug.


Three silly cats. They make me laugh!


Scary Skull!   


Cute Wood box.



HUGE tag.


Candle sticks.


Prim star Sconce.


Table Square.


Checked Lined Valance


Two Pewter Candle sticks. (These came from Jamie's GW. She nabbed them for me.)


And the piece of the week

an already prim perfect, mustard color, super sturdy, ladder back for $4.99!!!!!!



Hope you enjoyed this weeks treasures!

Until next time…

Carmen and the Primcats

Great Finds!! got a steal on that chair!! Love it!! Our GW and thrift stores are not too far away from where I live and I used to go just about everyday, but not so much anymore with getting ready for my shows. When they are over...I'm going on a thrifting shopping trip!

I like your idea! I have a Goodwill, Salvation Army Family Store, and Stuff, etc. within a block of each other! With cooler weather coming, I can get some exercise over my lunch hour and look for prims! Hopefully, I'll be as lucky as you!

Oh, my goodness! Did you ever score on your finds. I really like the star sconce and the prim chair. Lucky you :)

Raggedy Creations said...

Wow Carmen you hit the jackpot with the chair. All the finds are great though.


Linda ★ Parker's Paradise said...

awesome finds!
I especially love the little table square. That's the problem for me--they are all a day trip away for me but when we go we can hit 3 or 4 of them in that trip! And you're right. The more ofter you go, the better the odds.
just another example of
' you gotta kiss a lot of frogs to find a prince '
Warmest autumn blessings,

Love all the goodies you found. I too sometimes go on my lunch break to a local school thrift store here in town. Sometimes they have good things and sometimes nothing. But it don't hurt to stop in and see.
