Hooray, it's Today's Thrifty Treasures again hosted by a woman after my own heart, Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality. Don't you just love it when you find the best deals at the very last minute, just when you think you'll be going home empty handed?
Last Wednesday, I spent a wonderful day antiquing at Old Town Orange with a couple of girlfriends. (I'll be sharing more about this trip this week, so stay tuned.) As we exited the last antique mall, ready to go home and say our goodbyes, I spied these windows leaning up against the outside of the building. A post-it note was stuck to one of them pricing them at....hold on to your hats....
$5 each or 6 for $20! As I stood there, pondering which window to take home, an elderly lady walked behind me and said, "Do you know how much I paid for a window like that? $100!" I regretted not taking my van this day, or else I would have taken the whole lot! I did, however, purchase 6 windows. I happily handed the vendor a twenty and pulled my car up to load them. It wasn't easy trying to make them fit, but we did it!
These two windows are my favorites and stand about 5 feet tall. I have plans for these babies. Hopefully I'll have some before and afters by next week.
Then I bought 4 of these windows, 2 small and 2 medium. I also have plans for these, but I'm open to suggestions, so please offer me your 2 cents!
Then, after church on Sunday, I decided to drop by my local GW. I usually don't care to go thrift shopping on weekends because things are picked over by then. But not this time! I found a pair of very heavy brass and crystal sconces for $7.99/pair. I also know exactly where I'll be placing these.
Then, I found this bag of wooden craft eggs. All different sizes and even tagged as hen eggs, bantam eggs, thrush eggs, and pullet eggs. Imagine, they even have the type of bird its from! I have some ideas for these, too, but again your suggestions are appreciated. Besides, I'm speaking to an audience of the most crafty people out there!
Last, I had to make mention of what my 12 year old son bought. He was so excited to find this. It's a brand new George Foreman grill, still in the box with the original wrapping, for $7.99! He's a foodie in the making, it's in his blood and he can't wait to create some of his famous paninis. Guess what we're having for lunch tomorrow!
Hope you enjoyed my thrifty treasures as much as I enjoyed sharing them with you. Please stop by again, I have a lot more in store for you this week from my adventure at the Orange Circle. See you soon!
Till next time,
