Blizzard Day Red and White Thrift Finds!


Yup, this past weekend we had quite a blizzard going on and what did I do? Went out into for the love of thrifting. Ok, to be honest, I didn’t realize the roads were so bad when I left. But, braved the weather I did! It was the first Saturday of the month which meant our local 2nd hand store was having their “everything in the store 50% off” sale. And I had been looking forward to the day for awhile. I had 3 garbage bags filled with stuff for donation. Hey, at least I am getting rid of things before bringing new treasures home! LOL

And I of course, found many new treasures! Today I thought I would share a couple of the Red and White ones.

I love my milk glass so, when I spotted this 8 piece luncheon plates and cups, I just had to get them. Marked at $3.49 for the set, half off only $1.75!

I found a few little Valentine items. All of them were .25 cents each.

Feb 2011 bargains 006

And I just loved these pretty heart dishes. Such beautiful designs.

And I grabbed this knitted red beret. It was .50 cents and would help keep some of the snow of my head. Okay, it just really looked cute on. LOL

Feb 2011 bargains 015

And I thought these red bandanna invitations were just so cute. They were 30 cents. I try to keep a stash of cards like this around.

Check out these adorable duck napkin rings. They are ceramic and cost .80 cents for the set of four.

Feb 2011 bargains 011

And last but, not least, this set of two red dish towels. They are so ready to be used for an outdoor BBQ. Okay snow, that is your queue to vanish and bring on Spring weather!

  54. Like you I was out this week and shopping in several Thrift Stores even with the weather being bad. I was able to pick up Valentine Decorations to finish decorating my Table and Home. I also picked some cook books and craft books for new ideas. All in all I came home with several bags. So I hope to win something also from you. The place you mentioned I have never heard of and don't even know where to locate it and I hope it won't stop from signing up for the prize.
