I really love doing these recent finds posts. Have you noticed that I only do them once a month now? I think that is working out a lot better. I try to post them the first Monday of the month, but honestly, it depends on my schedule and the way the dates fall.
I have a lot of good deals to share with you this month.
How about we start with this $2 vintage suitcase? It was marked $4.00, but was 50% off.
Three odd table legs for $3.
This large artwork and frame had been $4, but I got it for a measly .80 cents!
I almost missed this $5 lamp because I was zeroed in on an $8 lamp that was more visible. The other lamp was also a floor lamp, but it was much more modern.
Cousin Terry told me at dinner a couple of weeks ago that she saw this little guy at Goodwill for $6.00. After dinner, I stopped by and picked it up. It’s made from real wood, and a good deal if you can see past the orange paint.
The manager at Vendors’ Village brought this gem to my attention on a recent visit. It had been $20, but I got it for $4.00.
Milk crates on sale for 50 cents—I resisted the urge to buy all of them. I think I got four of ‘em.
Silly me, I didn’t even know what these were until I got to the checkout lane. I got the bunch for $5. I have no idea what I’m going to do with them, or a lot of this other stuff for that matter. Rarely do I have a plan….
At another dinner date with Terry last month we transferred a bunch of beds from her vehicle to mine. She picked up a bunch of these for me at our local Unique Thrift Store. She texted me pics and told me they were having a great sale.
These were in that same batch of bed. I’ve already made 3 projects out of these two bed pieces. (stay tuned)
These are a little odd, they too, were in that same batch. I took the picture with one upright and the other upside down to see if you had any thoughts on what they should become.
This was the last of the group I got from Terry that night.
I turned one up on it’s end to get another view (idea).
All of my great finds aren’t at thrift stores. I found a great deal on 2’x4’ corkboard at Home Depot. I bought a few, but went back the next day and bought 12 more! I would love ideas on how to use these. Do you have tips for cutting corkboard? I’ve been using a t-square and a utility knife.
I also got a great deal on some Behr Marquee (oops) paint in RED for $9. But upon actually using it, it’s not quite as red as it appears on the lid of the can.
One can never have enough scrabble boards, tiles, and tile holders, right?
This great deal came from Joey’s booth at Vendors’ Village. A sheet is a great source of fabric, and for $2, I couldn’t pass it up.
I’ve hung a curtain rod on my portable wall, so when I found this curtain panel for $5, I thought it would be worth storing.
I have no idea why I bought these vintage poker chips. I had some ideas, but so far they haven’t panned out.
If you have any ideas on how to use any of these great thrifted items, I’d love to hear what you have to say. Please email me, or leave a comment below.
