Thrifty Thursday

Ok, so here is my other idea. Thrifty Thursday! Every Thursday I go down to the local thrift store (which is only open on Tuesdays and Thursdays). I can't wait to see what great items I find! Usually pretty awesome things. 

Last week I found these:

Vintage Rocking Chair $8 In perfect condition! (structurally)

Miss Pig $2. She was not with the chair, I found her with the kids toys. I don't normally gravitate towards pigs, but for an extra $2, how could I resist such a cute piggy to live on my chair? Just look at that dress! Sooo flowy. :-)

This week was Amazing! I'll be honest, I am not supposed to be spending $$$ this week. I wasn't even planning on going to the thrift store - for about 5 minutes! :) I knew I just had to go. So I prayed! I said "Lord, I am looking for a set of nesting boxes with a country theme to match my decor and I need it to be cheap." I left it at that and off I went. I didn't really see much that I wanted, so I made my way to the back (where they keep all home decor items) and it took me minute to look over everything. I swear, they were not there on my first glance. I turned around to leave and then I saw them! 

How perfect!! Thank you Lord!!!!!!! :-D I almost did my happy dance right there! It was just too good! And they were only $6!! I was floating on cloud 9 I tell you. 

As I went up to pay, I noticed something that was not out before and at $.40, I couldn't resist that either! ( I heart crowns!!)

I know the picture is blurry, it was a dark day, hard to get decent lighting, etc.... :)

and then I turned around and saw this for $.50! Perfect! Already distressed and everything. and Green!!! :)

Such an adorable candle stick holder! I am one happy thrifter I tell you! 

I also found a brand new Banana Republic dress shirt for the hubster. 

So every Thursday I will be sharing my Thrift Store finds, and again, I would love for people to link up and show their great finds. It doesn't have to be from a thrift store, just something you think you got a great deal on. 

I can't wait to see your steals! :)

Everything is really cool. Every time you turned you saw something new. I think I would be making a lot of turns. Really like the crown plate.

AWESOME steals and deals! I am super jealous of that cutie pie rocking chair you found. I cannot believe it was only 8 bucks. You scored big time on that one!
