Thrift store and church rummage sale finds

April has already been a good month for thrift shopping.
I went to my favorite store yesterday, looking for warm weather clothing for the grands, 
I found lots for the youngest grandsons
4 shirts and 8 shorts $1 and 50 cents each
Cute rompers - the orange one was $2 and the gray one was 50 cents
Little big Jammies, a swimsuit for the oldest grandson and a swimsuit for the youngest grand daughter.  
I am a sucker for polka dots. 


Rummage sale finds
These toys were 25 cents each. Both grand daughters are fans of Mickie and Minnie.
When you push the button on the side of the truck, it makes a sound like a truck or animal- I think all the grandsons will like it. 

Free magazines- old Country Living, from 1984 and  2002
Tupperware
Books were 25 cents each,  The Fox is a song my grandmother sang to all her grandchildren.
Cross stitch booklet
I think these are potholders as they are double sided. They are crocheted of cotton yarn and very pretty, 25 cents each. 
A really BIG spoon rest. Maybe it is a ladle rest.
And a mystery box- it was not an old Santa........
But these treasures
Look at all these pins! And I need new pins. 
Old needles- I think they cost a lot more than 15 cents now
A bunch of gold and pearl beads, and silver chenille stems
So much glitter- I've never seen glitter in bags. 
Lots of good crafting supplies. 
And this pretty tatted piece. I think it was made to go around the neckline of a top or dress. I hope to do something with it for me. 

Spring thrifting is fun!

  4. Wow, Rhonda...you hit the big time! Great clothes for the kids and cute toys and books, too. I had to laugh at the Tupperware though...I just donated all mine. I'm switching over to mostly glass containers.

    1. Hi Melanie, that is funny. Too bad we are so many states apart, we could swap. I use a lot of glass for cooking and serving, in fact my Pyrex cabinet is so full. I saw a little Pyrex at that church rummage sale but did not buy it, I am thinking you would of liked it.

  7. You found some great deals! I went to a rummage sale last week and found several garden flags for $2 each and a homeschool magazine that had some recipes and craft ideas in it. Love those bargains!

  8. You've got some great finds there! I don't shop for anything at the thrift stores any more unless it's books that I will give away or return to the thrift right after reading. I'm still trying to declutter which is an never ending job around here.

  9. I used a piece of tatting similar to your last picture as a mat for a cross stitch picture..... It had been made by my grandmother and was used on the top of a camisole.......
