I only hit one garage sale this weekend, but I found lots of great treasures to share during Today’s Thrifty Treasures at Southern Hospitality!
I think I squeeeeeeeled when I saw the gigantic fork and spoon for $1.00! These have already been rehabbed and are hanging on my wall. If you want to see how they look now, click here. Tres Kitchy!
A set of 5 brass trivets for 75 cents. I’ll probably paint the fish ones in bright fishy colors and hang them on the playroom wall. The butterfly will go to a friend.
A big box of mason jars for $1.80! These are great for decorating as well as canning.
Matching picture frames for $3.00! I’ll be painting them and using the frames somewhere else.
More frames! The big ones were $1.00 each. The little one was 25 cents!
BIG picture in frame for $2.00. I bought it for the frame but the painting is growing on me.
As a side note: I almost didn’t go into this sale. I stumbled on it when I saw a tiny sign on the side of the road. There were just a few tables set up in the garage and nothing sitting in the driveway. I figured there wouldn’t be much there. Turns out it was an entire house sale with 5 rooms full of stuff! I wish I’d gone earlier!
The lesson? If you’re shopping, don’t bypass ones that don’t look that good from the outside. There might be a treasure inside. And for sellers? Promote the size of your sale on the sign!
