Dollar Store Pretties

I have to say that sometimes I am surprised at some of the pretty things the dollar store carries. 

IMG_4707_2303Last week I went in to get the prayer candles I used for my post here.  I found a few other things and I still walked out having only spent $10.00!   These are just a few of the items I got that I was surprised to find there.

These really pretty folders ~ 3 pack for $1.00.


I got a matching/coordinating 3-pen set.  {They also had little pocketbook type notepads that also seemed to go with this}.

I found these little fleur de lis pieces in the candle aisle and had to get them ~ $1.00 each.


I’m finding it pays to look in every aisle because you never know what you will find at the dollar store!

Linking up to Frugalicious Friday at Finding Fabulous.
