Thrifty Treasures Thursday: Unearthing Gems from Secondhand Delights #6

Welcome back to Thrifty Treasures Thursday, this is Post #6. 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 found this Vintage 1980s Elves Climbing Ladder Christmas Decoration at a garage sale. All three elves are in excellent condition, as is the three piece ladder. Elves have wires in their limbs and are fully posable. When assembled, the ladder is 48 inches tall, but it is in three pieces, so you can shorten it to 32 or 16 inches. Kids love, adults love it, it’s the perfect Christmas decoration. Still in original box – I paid $1.00 – it is currently up for sale for $35

Another garage sale find is this revolving music box.  I have done quite a bit of research and I cannot find anything similar online. It plays “Santa Claus is coming to town” and the figures at the bottom represent different areas of the world. I paid $2.00 for it and it might be a keeper.


I took a little trip about an hour away from where I live to a Thrift Store I had not been to before. It did not disappoint and was well worth the drive. It is called Mystic Thrift (click on the name to be taken to their FB page).  The three pieces below were the favourites of what I bought. $5.00 for the spice rack, $3.00 for the red handled ice cream scoop (I LOVE this one), and $1.00 for the cookie cutter. I kept both the scoop and cookie cutter and will try and sell the spice rack.

I picked up this incense burner on my out of town trip two weeks ago – there was just something about it that drew me to it. It was $6.00 with a 60% off tag – I couldn’t leave it behind for $2.40  – it is called a Jizo-sama Incense Burner and valued at $45.00 on Amazon. I am undecided on whether it’s a keeper or sell.

I paid $20.00 for all three crates of glass insulators(summer garage sale) – one of these days I’ll use them to create items like snowmen, santa claus, pumpkins and candle holders. The best part about these is they can be stacked and stored (outside) so won’t take up any valuable space. The bottom pictures shows the two different sizes in the crates.


Well, that wraps up this Thrifty Treasures Thursday.

Thrifty Treasures Thursday is more than just a blog feature; it’s a celebration of the joy that comes from uncovering hidden gems in the most unexpected places. Join me each week as I explore the world of thrifted finds, and together, let’s embrace the beauty of pre-loved items and the art of sustainable shopping. Until next Thursday, happy thrifting!
