Fun Finds

This morning I got to spend the day with a good friend of mine, Davina. We went to town to hit some garage sales. I love spending time with a friend and finding lots of cute bargains!

I have also decided to join in the fun and participate in Today's Thrifty Treasures for the first time over at Southern Hospitality . You should visit Rhoda and check out some of the great things you can find at yard sales!



Here are a few of my finds from the day:


Cameron already had the shirt on the left. I found a matching one for Caden!

How cute will they be!!....$.50




Gumball machine: $1.00 (with change inside) Cannot wait to show you how I will transform this gumball machine!
(That is after they go through a round of gum balls!)



Brand new hair products all for $1.00....frugal way to try out new products!





Levis skirt...$1.00 NWT





Lamp for Cameron's sports room..... $2.00






Body boards....$1.00 each





My favorite bargain of the day.......




Very sturdy, well made, basket drawers in excellent working condition........how much you ask??





$10.00 yay!

What a bargain! I LOVE IT!!

Great job! Today was the day for sales. I didn't get to any since we had cheer fundraiser and ball game. I love the basket caddy thingy. I could find all kinds of uses for it.
Enjoy the weekend.

Rhonda - you cleaned up! What super things!!! That gumball dispenser is great - your kids will love that. And those hair products were a steal! I love that basket thing too.

It was pouring rain here today, so I didn't make it out to the garage sales.

My garden is growing like crazy. How is yours doing? I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

XOXO

Way to go! I think your finds are awesome. I cannot wait to get to some garage sales. I seem to always have my kids and garage sales are not fun with a 1 and now 3 year old!!

Rhonda in OK said...

Hi Rhonda,
you look so young to be a Rhonda, most of the Rhonda's I've met are around my age - 51 - and named for the actress Rhonda Fleming. You look much younger than that.

great deals - love the matching Hawaiian shirts for your little boys.

thanks for coming to my blog

I will take that basket drawer stand so just pack it up and send it my way! I can't wait to see what you do with the gumball machine. You got some neat things. What are the chances of finding another shirt to match??? Thanks for stopping by my site. Come back again any time.
