Friday Finds

First I’d like to say “TGIF”!!!  It’s been one of those weeks that Friday couldn’t come soon enough..I’m sure some of you can join me with this feeling.   I’ve been hitting Goodwill religiously every week and thought I’d start sharing my finds with you.  I’ve found so many great items, some I lucked up being able to buy – some I didn’t get there soon enough and lost out on.  I know you’re probably wondering “what the heck is she shopping for now?”  (like my husband does) but again .. remember the word.. THRILL..  gotta do it.  But actually, I’ve been shopping with a purpose also.  I’m helping my brother decorate his home.  He purchased a home last year and have been working at it little by little.  It was a fixer-upper that was a GODFATHER of a deal.. (you know – an offer he couldn’t refuse).  The price ($5,000) he couldn’t resist.  Trust me..I didn’t fault him one bit.  I’m going to take you on a journey of his house next week – so follow along.  But moving on to my Friday Finds..

I was coming home from work last Friday and came across this yard sale in town.. could you believe this set was $40.00 (there are 4 chairs – one just wasn’t in the picture).  Naturally – I snagged that.. of course the chairs will be recovered – in due time

This pair of wall sconces were snagged at Goodwill for $4.75ea.. They’ll get a face lift (of course)

This chandelier is perfect for his kitchen (which is yellow and white). This cutey was found at Goodwill for $9.75.  I’ll give the gold a new polished look

For me – I like this plate.. the color is springy.. so that came home with me for $1.75

Last but not least.. which I love.. This big Sunflower dish.. I figured it would look lovely propped on his counter.  His favorite football team is Minnesota Viking and he’s wanting yellow & purple in his kitchen.  So for $2.75 it’s in the trunk headed to its new home.


This is one thing that I couldn’t buy.. can you say “drats, drats and double drats”  it was only $40.75 – Someone else beat me to it..

Well guys, these were my Friday Finds.. Tune in again for next Friday to see what else I snag.. Until then.. enjoy your weekend and Happy Hunting!!

  1. I bet the piece of tempered glass on top of the table set you got cost more than 40.00. I love those. I am going to go garage saleing this year, too. I usually can’t but I’ve got Thursday’s off now. Yippee!

  2. We kneel at your feet, O Queen of Garage Saling!!! You did really, really good! Too bad you missed out on that other table/chair set, but there’s a reason for everything. Probably something better to come in your future! The one you got is really great, and I like the way the chair covers hang…although I guess you said you’d be changing those out. The ones on there now remind me of a long, comfy summer dress.

    It’s nice that you’re helping your brother to make his Godfather of a house a home. I know he appreciates it. I’m anxious to see some of the photos. I love watching transformations…as long as I’m not the one involved in making that transformation happen! 🙂

    I don’t know if I told you or not, but I actually hit up our neighborhood garage sale last week. It took some effort on my part to actually get dressed and go out there, but I did. Good thing, too, because I snagged a SWEET deal on some Longchamps crystal stemware to embellish that which I already have. I learned from the best…YOU!

    Have a terrific weekend, and keep feedin’ that thrill. I totally get it!!! 🙂

    • Chuckles.. you really tickled me with this.. chuckles..I’m sooo proud of you.. It wasn’t so bad after all – maybe you’ve been bitten by the thriftbug and will visit more.. keep me posted.. would love to hear about your finds.
