Fun Finds Friday

Wow!  It's been forever since I've posted Fun Finds Friday!  (If you are following me, you will note that a bunch of posts were removed after February.  Sorry about that!  I had an oopsie on the computer and I'm too lazy to go back and rebuild!)

I had a marvelous thrifting day, in spite of the fact that I actually had to go into work today for part of the day!  With finds like these, maybe I should make working on Fridays a habit!

I found most of these treasures at the same yard sale and at awesome prices!

Here's a little closer look at my finds:

I'm a sucker for old shoe forms.  I haven't figured out what I am going to do with them yet, but they always look awesome in vignettes and shelf displays.

I got both of these old sewing drawers for $2.  I love these.  They will be cute in either the sewing room I plan on creating from one of my kid's now vacant rooms or as more vignettes.  I like that word...vignette, vignette, vignette.....

That WordSearch game in the back was practically free!  It is FILLED with very vintage looking rounded wood letters.  Kind of like round scrabble tiles.

Is this old clipboard TO DIE FOR?????  And, get a load of the price!  I have plans for this that I think are awesome.  More to come on that!

Lastly, I love old insulators - especially pretty blue ones that are only .50!  They are also awesome for......join me in saying "vignettes!"  I'm not sure why I got the old stein, but it looked antiquey (if that's a word) and if nothing else, I thought I might have luck on ebay with it.  I also got the old fan for $1.  It doesn't work, but the Cowboy is pretty hand with electrical repairs, and look at that original turquoise color!

I think I made a killing today!  And I think there are a few of you having murderous thoughts of jealousy at my great finds!

Happy Friday!

  1. Oh yes, I think I'd have to fight you for some of these goodies:-) Door knobs are always on my list, shoe forms too. Love that clip it all. Thanks for sharing your treasure hunt!

  2. I just bought a stein that looks very similar to yours at a Goodwill in San Antonio this week! I'm not really sure why I bought it either except I just really liked it and I also thought it might be good to drink coffee outside with -- you know keep the bugs out. Loved your finds. cdsmith322 at aol dot com
