Thrifty Finds

Since moving to Ohio, I’ve made an “in real life” friend in Sue from Sullivan and Murphy.  Sue contacted me to get together shortly after we moved here and this past Thursday was the second time that we met up.  Sue has been very generous in sharing her favorite shopping haunts with me.  Here are some of the things I found on this trip.

I found this great looking pedestal in one shop Sue took me to.  It was only $21.99 and is quite tall.    I’m not really sure what or where I’m going to put it {probably the master bedroom} and the top is large enough to hold a cloche, which is giving me lots of ideas.

At the same place was a large glass jar filled with Scrabble tiles; $.25 a letter!  I started to pull out letters to spell “Creative”, but there was no “C” to be found.  I bought the “reative” anyway, thinking I can pick up a “C” somewhere.  I also pulled out “JOY” figuring I could use it somewhere for the holidays.

My final find on this trip is this great red, sectioned wood carrying tray.  I think I’m going to leave it red and put it on my coffee table, decorated for Christmas.  At $14.99 I thought this was a great buy!

These are my kind of finds. You know I like boxes. Goodness I find old scrabble games all the time, maybe I should sell them. The table is gorgeous and you are right a cloche would be perfect. We are cloche freaks but in the best possible way. That is so fun that you and Sue go shopping. When I say "blog" to my friends I might as well say "possum." They do not get it. Happy Thanksgiving ♥Olive

Looks like you found some great deals. Sue is a hoot, glad to see you two live fairly close together. She's wearing out the tires on her car driving over this way.

Kathy, How fun that you have met Sue and the two of you have been antiquing. She is a sweetheart! Love the pedestal and the color is so pretty. You'll find many uses for the red wood carrier.
