Thrifty finds this past week

I know I've already posted today but I wanted to take part in the Today's Thrifty Treasures posts hosted by Southern Hospitality.


Would you believe I bought this little table for a dollar at a garage sale a week ago? The lady was getting ready to close so she sold me ten to twelve My Little Ponys, a large stuffed horse, various books, and this table all for $7.00.

I've seen this table sell for well over $100.00 in catalogs.


My husband loved this Goodwill purchase I made last week. Impressing someone with a degree in furniture engineering is always a good thing. I've seen it in catalogs for $200.00 to $300.00 and he said he could see why it was originally expensive.

It looks like it is made by a cabinet maker and he said the wood used is excellent. It can be a bench and a child size table.

Both of these thrifty finds will be good when the grandchildren visit. :)

Join Rhonda at Southern Hospitality and show off your thrifty finds.
