I love finding a good deal. Whether those deals are in thrift stores, at garage sales, or even on the clearance shelves at local stores, I'm all about "saving money." I went ahead and stored up the purchases I made this past month to share with you in a single post. This is that post!
This all began with a garage sale down the street from our house. Pat and I decided to stop in real quick. While he didn't find anything he needed, I was able to snatch up a few things.
The first thing that caught my attention was, of course, a tin.
As I snatched it up, I noticed it had some heft.
On further examination, I was surprised to find an array of art supplies.
At home, I discovered that it was mostly Liquitex and Speedball acrylic paints, a few watercolor paint tubes, and some old (but still good) oil pastels.
In addition, there was a smattering of some miscellanea.
Also at the garage sale, there were a few piles of other craft-related materials, but one stack caught my attention the most.
I spotted beads!
It's obviously not anything I need, but I got both the tin, these items, and two embroidery hoops for $4. That's a real deal!
Later in the month, I went to Ladies Night at Southern Antiques and Accents. While everything is 10% off on Ladies' Night, I found some crystals that were 50% off!
I have to admit that I didn't realize they were reduced until I got to check-out. Ha! Total score.
Finally, Hobby Lobby marked down some of their Tim Holtz and art supplies. I had seen the talk about this clearance all over the internet, so I made sure to jump on it.
I'd been wanting some of the Maribou art crayons for some time, and I can't go wrong with the Tim Holtz stuff. Hopefully, you can still find these deals at your local store too.
To give you an even better look at these thrifty scores, I, of course, recorded a video.
I have a good laugh in the video when I get confused about some of the garage sale materials.
So, how about you, found any good deals lately?
