Favorite Found Treasures

I shop thrift stores regularly, as most of you know.  I buy things for myself and to sell on ebay.  I would like to build my ebay to a thrift & gift store and make donations to animal shelters.
Today I would like to share with you a couple of my favorite treasures.
The black puppy dog lives in my china cabinet.  I paid .25 only for him!  Yes, I decided it's a male. :)  And the pitcher and cup I found separately at the same store.  They cost me $6.00 together!   These are two of my favorite finds.
I find a lot of items with price tags still attached!  Love it!
Hope everyone enjoyed the weekend!


So handsome and low maintenance. :)

Wish you could feel the texture of the roses. 

There's not one chip!  Excellent condition!

Great finds at great prices! I have several of those "low maintenance" dogs. Hard to cuddle with, ya know? LOL!

I think it would be neat, Marie, if you could achieve your dream to have a thrift shop to help animals. What great finds you got!

they are beautiful. the pup and the cups..Gail at the farm is selling kindling wood that was struck by lightning on ebay, 10 dollars for a few sticks in a box...

laughed at your comment about the low maintenance pup. really cute. and the pitcher and cup are sweet!

you are a dear, dear soul, avis marie!

That is such a good idea. Good for you to try to help the animals. Let me know if you ever want me to advertise any of your ebay stuff on my blog. I am all for rescuing animals. I have somewhere around 20 cats here that were feral and came to live with me. Take care and have a great week.

I hope you do start a business I could see you do that. I really liked the vase with the flower - it is pretty!

Well you know I love thrift store shopping. Those are great finds.
You should have a link in your sidebar to your ebay store (if that's possible)

I love the pitcher especially! And I have a little dog like that behind my glass doors, only he is a Scotty!

Betsy Adams said...

That's a pretty good business, Marie... Buy things cheaply in a thrift shop and sell them for more on eBay... Amazing what people are looking for when they search eBay...

The pitcher and cup are gorgeous... Someone may have some matched to those --and would be willing to pay big bucks for those two...

Good Luck...
Hugs,
Betsy

LOVE THRIFT STORES!
You got some good buys!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

I do the same. Lots of fun stuff.

Blackberry Lane said...

I like thrift stores, too. You got some great bargains. I am behind due to computer problems.

Hi, Marie! These are great finds. I love thrifting and garage saling, too. Do you prefer eBay over Etsy? I've thought about an Etsy shop since I've got some stuff I'd like to get rid of but don't want to sell it at garage sale prices. People still expect to buy things for a quarter. LOL! At least in my small town.
It's a wonderful goal to build your business and give to animal shelters! I wish you much success!

What a sweet dream to have -- funding an animal shelter with your ebay funds. But how will you part with any of that booty? :)

Tina@WhatWeKeep said...

I share your love of animals, Marie...but you know that! I love your idea..I'll buy from your shop!

Renae of Simple Sequins said...

Oh great items Marie! Yes, weekend was rainy but Sat night it stopped and the weather has been marvelous today. Thanks for your visit. Be sure and see my post today and Thursday for sure and tomorrow and Wednesday, heck see them all! LOL

SquirrelQueen said...

Aw, that little dog is so cute. I love the rose pattern, it looks so expensive. I hope your dream can come true Marie, there are so many animals out there that need our help.
