A few finds

Today at Savers was nuts, there was SO much Halloween stuff out and it was just so crowded. I did not spend as much time in there as I usually do, but I did find a few goodies. Here they are...
I think these guys are pretty cute. They are about 9" tall. They were $1.99 each.

I have been really into candle sticks lately. These were 99 cents each I think. They will probably get spray paint black, possibly white.

I love that little bird tea light holder. I think it is very cute. It was a $1.50, same price as the rock that says Love. I got them both from Joann's in the 70% off clearance section.

This shelf is different. I don't really know what else to say about it but it stood out to me. It was $3.99 at Savers but I had a coupon and needed to spend so much to get a certain amount off so it was not too bad. I won't be painting it, probably just clean it up a bit and then hang it somewhere.


I got this stoneware bowl for free from Josh's mom. I have been wanting one like this for sometime now, so free was PERFECT for me.

Not too many finds, but I don't thin I did too bad. Please stop over at Southern Hospitality to see every ones Thrifty Finds. Please check out 2nd Time Around hosted by Diane

  1. The stoneware bowl is great! And believe it or not, the candleholders are wonderful just like they are...but they will be very pretty black or white too.
    Can't believe the Halloween things are out!

  15. You did amazing. I rarely venture to Savers on Monday, it's usually a madhouse and I want to scream at the top of my lungs for people to stop crowding me.... You are mighty brave, look what rewards you gathered! Love the candle sticks, perfect style, black would be amazing, so would silver. Love the bowl major FRUGAL SCORE on that!
