Part 2...Thrifty Finds....

Good Morning Everyone!
This is part 2 of my thrifty finds...
these finds are from a couple weeks ago.
I tried 3 different times to write this post
and it's been taking for-ever to upload pictures.

These items are from 2 different Goodwills...
At the first Goodwill stop, these
were my finds....

This hanger thingy with the clips.
I wanted one to hang photos on.
This one was $1.49

This bag of buttons was 1/2 price,
so I paid .49 cents for it.

3 yards of musilin fabric for $1.99

This is an old wood scooter.
We use to play on these in gym class
when I was in school. So much fun!
It's a little beat up, not exactly sure what
I am going to do with it...but I had to have it.
(My son told me to put one of my large
plants on it...then when I want to move
the plant, I just have to push the scooter) Lol!
 Scooter was $2.99

Moving onto the next Goodwill...
These were my finds...

3 of these awesome jars with rusty wire handles.
the one in the front has writing on it.
These were .69 cents each!  SCORE!!

These molds were
$1.49 for all six.

And these molds were $1.99 for
all 9 of them.
I want to make some Pantry cakes.
Carmen gave a wonderful
tutorial on how to make Pantry cakes.

This awesome find was $2.99.
I just Love it! I'm thinking about
painting it Black!
what do you think??

And lastly....
These 4 Blue Ball mason Jars
were .99 cents each.
And I took one of them and made it into
a soap dispenser for the Bathroom.
I had all the materials on hand.

That's it for my thrifty finds.
Enjoy your day everyone!

Sandi, You found some great deals. My GW has been horrible lately, haven't found a thing. Last week when I went in they had a notice up that they will no longer have the 1/2 color sticker each week. ~Ann

Great finds, Sandi! I remember gym class and scooters too, seems like someone was always getting their finger run over, LOL...
Hugs, Traci

Wishing I could find goodies like that at our GW stores. I just keep going back hoping one day to score big. Love all your goodies. Can't wait to see your pantry cakes. I want to make some myself. Have a great day

Good finds, and I am so jealous of the blue ball jars! I haven't been able to go thrifting in a long time.

You had some great finds, Sandi! I like the idea of painting the little cabinet black! And I've been wanting to make one of those soap dispensers! Thanks for stopping by and leaving such a sweet comment about my sign re-do!

Great finds Sandi. I love the blue mason jars. That was an excellent find. I remember playing on those wooden scooters too:) How fun. Now the question is, did you try it out when you got it home? Have a great day.

You scored big time! I need to shop at your GW, ours doesn't have all this awesome stuff. All that muslin for 2 bucks?! I can never find any good fabric like this at our GWs. What a great deal! I can't believe you got all those jars so cheap too, wow! That's like garage sale prices. Great haul! I think the little drawer box (which I love) would look great painted black. That's what I would do if it was mine.

Oh Sandi, I totally forgot about those wooden scooters, hahahaha! I do remember using them in gym class, they were fun. Can you imagine if our kids had to play with these? They would die off, lol.

Have fun playing with all your great finds~

What great finds! I remember those scooters also and the finger pinches! Great deal on the molds, I want to make some of those also.

Have a great week!

Hi Sandi,
Isn't GW a fun place to go...we usually find ONE thing there but not much else on a single visit. But I still think it's fun to search. You just never know what will be lurking UNDER something else.

Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a nice comment (you always do!)
Blessings,
Karen
