Thrifty Things Friday #19 & A Giveaway!

Hi everyone!

When I was shopping at Value World with my 50% off coupon, I picked up these two pretty silver plated pieces. You know how I love my silver! Well, I couldn’t pass up these pretty pieces for a grand total of $1.50!

Bargains 6-11 001Bargains 6-11 002Not only tarnished but, it also had old stickers on it.

Bargains 6-11 003Bargains 6-11 004Just a pretty tray.

With some cleaner/polish and about 15 minutes of elbow grease……

Bargains 6-11 005Ooh, I love sparkle! It amazes me the things that people get rid of and then get sold for so little money.  Don’t get me wrong, It makes ME a happy thrifter!

Oh, and as if those weren’t a good enough bargain, check this find out!

Bargains 6-11 009Still wrapped in the box. See that price of $5.85? I got it half off that price!

Bargains 6-11 010Bargains 6-11 011Just gorgeous! I don’t think these were ever used. Probably a wedding gift.

So, those were my recent thrifty silver finds.
