Thrifty Treasures Thursday: Unearthing Gems from Secondhand Delights #5

Welcome back to Thrifty Treasures Thursday, this is Post #5. I am so happy you are here and can’t wait to share with you my latest thrifty finds. I will share what I found, where I found it, how much I spent and what I plan to do with it. In case you missed it -here is a link to last week’s post.

I just got back from a trip to another province and haven’t had the chance to take proper pictures of what I bought, so I apologize for the photos.

I am going to show you some items I bought and some I didn’t buy (mostly due to the price).

I found two stores that had great prices and two stores that had “are you kidding me” prices 🙂 I’ll start with the higher priced stores. These two things caught my eye but the prices were too high for my budget.

The lamps were $80.00 each.

The yellow pyrex bowl had a $30.00 price tag and that wasn’t the most expensive bowl on the shelf – say whaaaat!!
This was a good price for the cutting board, but I didn’t need another pig cutting board 🙂 This one was cut from a leftover piece of laminate countertop. Great idea if you have a piece of laminate leftover and a jigsaw.


When I looked up this scale to do the comps, I could not find the exact model and the ones I did find for sale did not have enough of a profit margin to make it worth buying, it also had a bit of a bend on the front base, as you can see.  I try to stay away from things I need to fix or repair. $14.99

I did find some great scores, such as this Company’s Coming Holiday Book. I have had this book and still use it (mostly at Christmas), my mother gave it to me the first year it was published (1997). It’s still a classic. I am planning on giving it away as a Christmas present.

This little praying or singing stained glass angel candle holder was only $4.00. I have a couple of special people in my life that collect angels- it will be going to one of them at Christmas.

I bought these salt and peppers shakers $1.00 for the set. I am planning on turning them into Snowmen ornaments and sell them at a Christmas Craft Show.

Here is my where I got my idea schmidt studio.com  isn’t this adorable ?

I came close to buying this, even with the $14.99 price tag. When I did my thorough inspection it had too many chips and imperfections in the paint – waaaah, I loved it.

I also loved this metal cake cover and glass plate, it had a $14.99 price tag, so it stayed on the shelf.

I have not seen a large coffee cup in the Johnson line of dishes, have you? I think this is the Friendly Village pattern but am not sure. If you know which pattern it is, can you please let me know in the comments?  I paid $1.00, yes you read that right and I plan to keep it 🙂

This sweet little vintage baby wall hanging was only $2.00. It will be up for sale soon for $25.00

Well, that wraps up this Thrifty Treasures Thursday.
