Well it was a busy and successful week thrifting around.  I found the most bang for my buck this week at Goodwill and my local hospice thrift store. In total I spent less than $25 on my great finds!
Take a look and see!

4 Silver chargers for $2

Mexican Terracota Bowl $3 
Pics don't do this piece justice!

Blue and White Tin platter $1

Basket weave white plate
Cream scallop serving dish (Homer Laughlin)
I paid $1 for both

Green ceramic planter marked MANLEY $3

2 lamps (that match 2 that I have) $5
These will end up on my desk (once I build it)

Cream planter $.50

Home decor and DIY books 6 for $3.50!

I hope you enjoyed seeing my deals this week!  I visit my 2 Goodwills and Hospice thrift shop each week!
I will be going to visit my Mom next weekend in Sarasota!  She has the best Goodwill's I have ever been to!  I can't wait to see if I find anything.  I'm on the lookout for light fixtures, planters and more dishes!
Wish me luck!

I'm not sure where you are from,but if you are near a Publix you most def need to check out or www.iheartpublix .com !!! When I was pregnant and bored at work I would come across blogs with ladies finding all these coupons deals and I just kept reading and kinda just taught myself! It's amazing the stuff you can get for free or almost free! another blog I like is It can get overwhelming though! Just start out doing baby steps! Any questions please ask! I still buy other groceries, but I have cut my grocery bill in half!

Good luck. We must have the crappiest GW ever here! I never find anything that good and ours is expensive. I really like your lamps. That blue/white tin plate looks like porcelain.

Tardevil said...

p.s. Good luck thrifting in Fl! Hope you find bunches!

Lana K. W. Austin said...

All wonderful finds! I love all of the white pieces and that blue and white piece as well, but they are all fantastic! I have gotten some great magazine/book deals at my GW!
Hugs, Lana

You could be a professional shopper!

You really scored with those books! I always first check out the books, the glass and tabletop stuff when I hit the thrifts.

Hey Lacy Lu! I think you should send your Aunt Kay that blue & white platter. Love you.

Marla said...

So Lacy, I also make the rounds to the 2 GW's and Hospice attic almost weekly. Maybe we have seen eachother. Did you find any great treasures in Sarasota? I have a friend that used to live in Sarasota and said she found a ton of great stuff down there. Maybe we will have to meet up some time. Marla
