Happy Thrifty Thursday friends!
So this was a pretty
cheap thrifty week for me. Everything I found was just a buck or two, and mostly a buck.
These 3 copper wall hangings were a buck a piece. I’ve seen the rooster and duck before but have never found a seashell. They’re worth between $10-$15 each.
I’m not really sure why I have a thing for copper because I’m not a huge fan of the colour orange. But I do love rusty stuff too so it’s a bit of a mystery, even to me. These will go to my etsy shop.
This $1 box of vintage dominoes will be saved for some future and as yet unknown repurposing project. Something that hasn’t already been done is bound to come to me someday. Famous last words. 🙂
The two sets of vintage brass spoons were a buck for the lot, and they have real polished stones in their handles. I’ve never seen anything quite like them, and I’m thinking they might be dessert spoons. I haven’t decided yet if I’ll be selling them or wind chiming them.
While these heavy iron curtain tiebacks are probably not vintage they were a great deal at a buck for the pair.
I’m always looking for cool odd and ends to use in repurposing projects, and you never know where the curlicue parts might end up.
This little silver tray and the rosaries will probably be repurposed into wind chime projects. They were a buck, a buck, and a buck.
This lot of miniature shoes was $2. I think they’re a resin and are probably from the 80s era. So not that old, but very pretty. Value $10-$12.
They’ll be going into my etsy shop eventually, but right now I’m enjoying them.
These 3 shoe ornaments were also in the lot. They have little hanger thingies and are marked QCOK on their bottoms. These are keepers and they’ll be hanging on my living room Christmas tree soon.
John calls it the girly tree. lol. That’s totally fine with me because I’m thrilled to have my very own girly tree.
Do you ever buy something while not knowing why?
That’s just what happened with this $1 chipmunk painted on a tree slice. Maybe I have firewood on the brain, but don’t worry… I won’t be tossing him into the wood stove any time soon.
He’s too cute!
I’m calling him Chester the Chippie, our firewood stacking mascot, and once you have a name you cannot become firewood. That’s the rule.
Doesn’t he look like a Chester?
I think I can totally relate to the chippies because we’ve all been busy getting ready for another long, snowy winter. The only difference is while they store up nuts and seeds we store up firewood, stacking the huge pile from our driveway into our portable garage. We’re almost done, thank goodness, and then we’ll be ready for whatever winter has to throw at us. But we’ll quite happily wait a while before seeing any of the white stuff.
Oh yes… and I just might be storing up a teensy weensy mother lode of silver treasures. What can I say? That helps me get through the winter too. 🙂
How do you get ready for winter?
Thanks so much for reading and until next time…
keep on keepin’ on!
