Thrifty Things Friday #71

Hi everyone!

We are experiencing some major storms, winds and power outages here so, I am posting early. That way I know for a fact that this post will go live today. Some times I just don’t totally trust Bloggers “scheduled” posts. I hope you all are having a wonderful day!

And welcome to the #71 Thrifty Things Friday Linky Party!


This has been such a busy and chaotic summer that I have not gone to even ONE yard sale! Last month I only went thrifting twice. And lately, when I have done a little thrifting it has been to look for specific things for our business. However, when that wonderful coupon for 50% of total purchase came out for Value World, I knew I had to take a little “Diann time” and do some “fun” thrifting.

Today I thought I would share a couple of my treasure finds from Value World.


I loved this big wicker basket tray when I spotted it. I had an idea of what I wanted to do with it immediately. And the price marked on it cinched the deal! It was marked $1.91 and then 50% off that! So, it came home with me!

This particular Value World is my favorite place to find fun napkin rings. They are all bagged up and are in a big box that kind of sits high in the store. No one ever seems interested in looking through the box. Which of course makes me happy!


So, I snatched up these three bags of napkin rings.


Marked $2.80 for the 9 brand new napkin rings. 50% off = $1.40



As you can see, the original tags were still on these never used before napkin rings.


A bag of 8 napkin rings for $2.80 – 50% = $1.40


How cute are these cherry napkin rings!



8 Bright yellow napkin rings for .80 cents. Not a bad haul of napkin rings for a pretty good price!

Now let’s check out some fun features from last week!

Susan’s Hearts and Flowers

Susan repurposed a sweater into a couple of sweet pillows.


Penny’s Treasures

Penny repurposed beautiful linens for window treatments.


Our Life in a Click

Heather repurposed this woman’s tank top for a costume.

  19. I love all those napkin rings! What fun you had getting all these bargains! I found the sweetest tea cup and saucer at my thrift store yesterday! It was kind of tucked away on the very back of the shelf! It is perfect for the autumn as the colors and golds,burgundies, orange and purple. It has a fruit pattern on the rim. It was half half and for seventy five cents I was tickled! Whew!
    Always fun stopping by here Diann! Take care!
