Saturday morning thrifting

I got my once a month thrifting fix today and spent $9
4 vintage cookbooks - 25 cents each
I was especially pleased to find the book by Sophie Leavitt as Precious at Frugal Makes Cents just mentioned that it is one of her favorite books and I had never heard of this author.
2 big rubber stamps - this store had a big tub of interesting stamps and I thought about buying more as they were such a deal but they were not really my taste
Little JJ needed some more winter clothes and I found quite a few- 
1 pair of GAP overalls, 4 pairs of athletic pants, 1 pjs, 1 long sleeve one piece, 2 shirts and a zippered heavy weight hoodie. Most were 50 cents and I think 2 were $1. Most are Carter's and Old Navy brands. 

I am very selective when thrift shopping- I like good deals but I sure don't want to buy stuff that will add to the clutter level in our home. 

Oh, I almost forget these 2 25 cent goodies. Grandson Gavin will especially have fun wearing these hard hats .

  1. Very nice buys...useful and very reasonably priced! Your grands will love playing with those hard hats, too! I've been dropping things off at the thrift store and not going in. I think I should go in next time! I always love to see what they have!

    1. I've got a bag to drop off too. They are fun but they can be dangerous too. For clutter anyway :)

    1. Mary Ann, you should of been with me. One of the thrift stores had all their womens clothes half price. But I didn't even look at them as I don't really need anything right now. Wish you had been here :)

  3. Great finds! Those hats will be fun! I wish we had a thrift store in our area... the 2 I know of are on the other side of the city so we rarely get there. :(

  6. I sure hope you enjoy her book as much as I did. I also have the BC Good and Easy.

    You did great at thrift shop - beautiful clothes at such great prices. We never see prices that low around here. Those hats are wonderful.

  8. Good deals! I love thrifting. Amazing how cheap baby and little kid's clothes are in thrift shops. That's the way to go instead of paying retail!

  9. You got all of that for nine dollars? Good deals, Rhonda.
    The hard hats are adorable. I need to find some good deals on baby and toddler pjs and clothes. We will soon be getting foster children and I need to have clothes for them. Often they arrive with no clothes and what they have may have with them will be dirty or infested with who knows what.

    1. yes I did! my town has 5 thrift stores and 3 of them are especially nice and organized with good merchandise. They all have things priced about the same but one thrift store, has especially low prices on their childrens clothes so that is the one I go to when looking for that.
