Friday Finds

The week has come to an end and so has summer.. but your thrifty girl’s finds are still going.  Me & Mom went thrifting in Columbia, SC at the Palmetto Thrift Store and here’s what I found during our journey:

A perfectly good leather club chair.. Price tag $35.00  – what a bargain  (if only I had room in the truck to bring it home – smh)

In the corner I  spotted this really nice mid-century lamp.. The teardrop base mixes perfect with the barrel shade (of course I would work a little paint magic on it.. )  However, they were asking $30.00 for it..  hmmmm… I’ll wait on that…

I also saw this kitchen chair, which I loved….Can you imagine how great it would look with new fabric!!  I wish they had three more..  drats!!  Do you see the price tag ????  Yes – $8.00

Unfortunately none of those came home with me.. but what did come home with me were these wonderful barstools!  We went to the grand opening of the new Salvation Army in Chester, SC and of course lady luck was with me…


They were $40.00 for the pair.. That was a big deal.. considering they still had the original store’s ticket price of $99.99 each stapled under the seat.   Although they came home with me but they left the next day to head to their new home..because weren’t for me.. They are for my son, Jamil’s place.. He told me he wanted some barstools and I told him be patient.. I’ll find some…  and so I did!!   Like I always say.. Patience is a virtue.. It pays to wait …  Have you all gotten lucky lately??  If so , please share…  I hope you all have a fantastic weekend and I’ll see you Monday with a new Makeover.    Tah-tah!!!

  1. Have I gotten lucky lately?!??!?!! Whoa! Wait a minute! That’s getting a little personal, isn’t it? 😉 😉 😉

    It’s a crime that you weren’t able to bring that club chair home! I can only imagine how much you’d pay retail/new for one, and that one was in terrific shape!

    Wise to pass for now on the lamp. I’m sure you can find it for less with that virtue you possess…patience!!! That’s what got Jamil those great barstools, and I have no doubt that lamp will be your in the months to come!

    I’m still on a blog/computer break. Working HARD on a fundraiser for my cousin who’s running for city council. That’s a week away. I still have a ton of work to do for that including a lot of overhead work to hang paper lanterns. The event is at my Mom’s house, so I’m up and down the highway several times a week. I’m also putting a lot of time and thought into a charity fundraiser coming up in November. I’ll be doing 4 fantasy tables for it and conducting a workshop. YIKES!!!!! So that’s why I’m AWOL now. Hope to get back here next week with a post and then to be able to get around to other blogs a bit, too.

    Have a great weekend, Jamala!!!
