"Junkin' Finds"



Hi everyone!

Today is the first "Junkin' Finds" party! My friend Linda has graciously taken over Debbiedoos GARage Salen' party since Debbie is taking some time away from blogging. So, I hope you all will head over and enjoy some fun at A La Carte for Junkin' Finds!



I am also joining Miss Laurie for her "A Few of My Favorite Things" party! Go check out all the fun things going on over at her place!

A couple of weeks ago I told you about going to a Resale Store that was going out of business. They had advertised in Craigslist that they had a room full of freebies plus everything in the store was deeply discounted. I showed you several of my freebie finds. What I am showing you today are the little surprises that Troy got for me.

All of these fall items are brand new (with tags on) and the whole lot cost $2.00!! Don't you love when you find new holiday items that you would have bought at the store anyway but, find them at a thrift store for a fraction of the price? Oooh, I do! :)

A couple of stacked Maple Leaf candles. Still in their wrappers and originally $2.00 each.




3 fun canape pumpkin plates. Also originally $2.00 each.




And 2 pretty ceramic pumpkins. Of course, originally $2.00 each.





So, all total, these items would have been $14.00 at Dollar General. But, we paid $2.00. So, if you are on a tight budget like I am, you can still add new holiday decor to your home without spending a lot of money. Even if you shop at the Dollar stores, $1.00 a item can really add up to a chunk of change. So, be on the look out in odd places to find some fun things!
