Great Thrift Store Finds

I had to run an errand this morning,
so took the opportunity to make a quick stop
at our local thrift store.

I came away with some great thrifty finds!

A set of 4 plates from Macy's - $ 4.49

Don't they have just the cutest design on them?

5 Kensington Ironstone bowls - .49 each

This cute little candle holder - .99 cents

A Paris Clock - $ 3.99

8 display doors - .49 cents each

I have great plans for some of these doors including decorative items for our home or gifts.

The remaining doors my craftsman/woodworker
husband will use on cabinets he'll be building.

This cute little frame was $1.99

I've got great plans for this frame that
I'll be sharing with you soon. So come back and see it's transformation!

(This frame was brand new, but had a very sticky -
sticker mark on the top. I used a little Goo Gone and the goo
was gone in a matter of seconds!)

When I arrived at the thrift store they were putting out a ton of brand new items(with store tags still on the items). I had to resist buying some of them, but took home a bag with 2 pairs of shorts, Capri pants and sweater for spring for myself. A new shirt for my husband and American Eagle blue jeans for my son.

The total savings on these new items alone was $74.38!!!


  1. Hi. SOOO happy I just found your blog through "At Home with K."

    My husband's a Pastor, too & we minister in Detroit. Although I've JUST started to look at your various blog posts & really excited to see all that you've done... BEAUTIFUL!
    (Wish I could get your blog delivered directly to my email cuz I'm not too good at remembering to view my "readers")
    Have a great Wednesday!

  2. You always find the neatest the Paris clock!

  3. Wow, you did good. The dishes are all great, and the clock is fabulous. Nice to find some clothes too. Great savings. Hugs, Marty

  4. You have some super cute finds! You have such a great eye. There is nothing quite like thrifting, it has to be one of my favorite things to do. Can't wait to see what you do with the cabinet doors.

  5. Oh my goodness! Those are great finds! My thrift stores never have really good plates and stuff like that! Love it!! And ironstone bowls for $0.49 each? Wow!

  6. Thanks for commenting on my blog. You are such a sweet little blogger! I did do my tile all by myself. It was really quite easy, you could totally do your own floor.
    thanks again!

  7. I love your blog!! So inspiring...I am a pastor's kid and I grew up in parsonages. My mother was the perfect woman to make those places feel like a HOME! Now I am married to a full time mother and I are starting a blog soon! Check it out :)
