Thrift Store Thursday 06/25

I had a pretty good week at the shops!

At Goodwill I found these faux pomegranates. They were $1 each, but I really liked them, thought they’d be great vase fillers, and I couldn’t get them for less than that somewhere else.IMG_2885I wasn’t too crazy about my lone jar of lemons before, but I think the poms really help the whole thing. I’m thinking a third jar with limes or something would complete the grouping nicely.

Today I made my weekly trip to United Volunteers, for 25% off everything. IMG_2881I got a brand new-with-tags pair of Children’s Place pants for Pinkerbelle, $2 (after discount). A Shopaholic book, and a book by the author of The Other Boleyn Girl (I really enjoyed the book, not so much the movie). I think they were 30 cents each. Also got a couple of books for Skippy, but he ran off with them before I could take the photo.

Then there are these: pillows made from U.S Mint bags! I did a wee bit of research and it appears that these may be authentic bags. It is unfortunate that they are indeed stuffed with polyfill, and not $1050 worth of coins. But, after all, I only paid $1.45 each.IMG_2883

I’m anxious to see what you found this week!

Those pillows are a neat twist on the standard flour sack pillow- a definite conversation starter!

Hi Holly! I think I goofed on my first try. I added myself to the link list, thinking this was the place to start -- sorry. Love the idea and will try again. Sandy/rhubarb reign

Sandy and Joe said...

Hi again, Holly! Thanks for your nice comment on my first attempt at Thrift Store Thursday -- I think I got everything worked out, after accidentally erasing the initial version! xo -- Sandy/rhubarb reign

Great finds! I love the pomegranates next to the lemons. I think limes would look really nice with them.

Great deal on the new pants, they are really cute.

Those are neat pillows too.

I didn't do any garage sales or thrift shopping this past week. I used my cash eating out instead! LOL!

printersdevil said...

I love the poms. I have a glass bowl with lemons and one with other fruit, too. I'm glad I found your blog.
