Fabulous Finds

Everyone knows by now that I shop thrift stores regularly.  And I'm finding that there are a lot of friends in blog land that enjoy thrift stores as well.  I wish we could all shop together, but until then lets share our finds here in blog land. :)
My son went to a couple of thrift stores this week trying to piece together his Halloween costume.  He's going as a "nerd".  Yes, there will be pics taken. :)  It makes me happy that he's being thrifty with my money. LOL

I couldn't resist these cute bird houses!  They were $2.99 each!
I placed my cell phone there to give you an idea of their size.
Now will they go in my kitchen or outside for little birds??? hmmmmmm

I found this lovely bowl, it was $.99!  It will have one of the most important jobs
in our home, it will soon be holding chocolate!  LOL

     Acquiring a dog
   may be the only opportunity
      a human ever has
        to choose a relative.

I saved the best for last!  
This was only $.49 and I just love it!

 Hope everyone is having a fabulous Friday!

love the 'treasure' bowl for chocolate. the dog print is so sweet. but the tiny bird houses would stay inside my house all year long. :)

Maple Lane said...

Wow! You got some great buys. I agree with TexWis - most important is that candy bowl!!!!
I walked through the thrift store earlier today and found a Minnie Mouse tote (brand new) for $2. It is just the right size for our vet's asst.'s little girl who will be visiting with us for Trick or Treat!
Always a pleasure visiting your blog - have a nice weekend.

Fiona said...

Fantastic finds Marie.

I love them all.

The bird feeders are fantastic and so also are the glass dishes
and sure you almost got them for nothing!!

A lot of kids in school today
(we had dressup day here in Ireland as school finishes for a week)
were dressed as nerds
so looking forward to seeing a nerd from across the water!!!

Love this quote:

How true. Sandie♥

Love the last one! (and ain't that the truth!)

Annmarie Pipa said...

good finds!!!
I discovered thrift stores looking for Halloween outfits too...then I realized there was all kinds of stuff in those last treasure was my .99 sugar bowl...that I saw in Target for $19.99. now I like it even better!!
happy weekend.

Ann said...

well of course you know I love thrift shops. It would be fun to shop together. That's a pretty new chocolate bowl you have there. Nice finds

SquirrelQueen said...

I'm thinking pocket protector and glasses held together with tape. A nerd costume would be so much fun.

I love all of your finds especially the bowl. I would have to put at least one of the little bird houses in my kitchen.

All great finds, Marie!! I think that bowl will make a mighty fine candy dish indeed!! And who could resist that picture? I hope your son found what he was looking for, for his costume.

Have a great weekend!

Nice finds Marie. I think I would go back to the store and buy a few more of the little bird houses, and then you can have them indoors and out. Problem solved. And as for the candy bowl, maybe you can take a photo of the bowl full of chocolate. Yum!
Have a Beautiful weekend.
Dianne :)

All great finds.
I love the little bird houses.
I'd keep them inside and put a little tea light candle in them.

Thrift stores are the best. I am always so grateful that other people get tired of their wonderful possessions. Glad to hear that your son is spending your money wisely :)

EM Illustrator said...

Enjoy your weekend too!

You do have an eye for finding stuff. When I shop, I just do not have good results. Guess the trick is to go often.

Hope your day is good!
