Between the storm and all the work after it, there wasn't much time to do much shopping in September. However, I did pick up a few thrifty bits while out for other errands. Here are a few of my favorites.
At the thrift store, I found these.
I lucked up on a small collection of these Fossil Watch tins. Initially, I only bought a few of them but ended up going back for the rest.
I also found what looks like a vintage sheet (though it may not be) and several small lampshades for a steal.
Oh, and there were these two BIG bags of ribbon for practically nothing.
Of course, I can't pass up deals at the Dollar Tree either.
I got these two shades of "creepy cloth" at the start of the month. I thought they might add some nice texture in my art journaling. Now, I just need to use them.
There were also several sets of these stickers that celebrate little accomplishments for adults. They totally tickle me!
And, I even bought some Halloween supplies that I used and transformed into something fun.
I saw a glimpse of this project online and knew I had to make a set of Fairy Skeletons. They were so very simple too!
I found several other steals as well, but you'll have to check out my September Thrifty Haul video to get a better look at them all.
What about you? Found any good deals lately?
If only I had that much ribbon... I literally keep every scrap of ribbon I have for my sewing projects but if I had that much...ReplyDelete
I was so surprised to find so much! I never see ribbon at the thrift store anymore. It looks as though a lot of it was from the clearance bin at Walmart. But, for my uses, that's fine. Here's hoping you luck up too!Delete
You had quite a month of treasure hunting! The tins are especially awesome and I wonder what your plans are for those.?? Some very pretty vintage type colors.ReplyDelete
Lynda, I'm so surprised at how much I found for only three trips out. Right now, the tins are actually holding my watercolor crayons and pencils - at least the bottoms are. The tops are off to the side to maybe get made into jewelry later, if I can bear to cut into them! ;) Thanks for popping in!Delete
The tins and the ribbons are really good finds! And so are the rest ones :) I'm sure they will inspire you for new projects.ReplyDelete
You always find the best tins. I can't wait to see what you create.ReplyDelete
Kathy, Ha! My luck with tins has been so-so lately. But, I really have more than I know what to do with right now. However, I just couldn't pass these up. They were too good of a deal. Now, to actually create something. . .Delete
