Recent Thrifty Finds
My sister and I like to visit a thrift store in our area during the time they get rid of their old inventory to make room for new inventory and everything is 75% off its ticketed price. We are always able to find some pleasing deals. Here are a few things from our latest trip:
This wine rack was $5, and I am going to use it to hold rolled towels in the bathroom like I’ve seen people do on Pinterest, for function and decor.
I think I may put this pretty shovel, which I bought for $1, by my fireplace to fancy it up a bit.
This dainty candle holder was less than a dollar, and I enjoy burning candles this time of year.
I am not sure the original purpose of this expandable. I seem to think my mom had one when I was growing up that had pegs on it, and she hung her coffee mugs on it. However, I have also seen these used to hold rolled up towels. Any other ideas?
This plate and stand was less than a dollar as well, and I loved the color for my kitchen, but I bought it because the house in the picture looked just like the house my husband grew up in, and I had to show him!
Not terribly exciting, but this little organizer for my spices was just a few cents, much less expensive than a regular store.
You may have seen these darling bowls on some of my recipe posts! They were delicate and elegant, and even though they only had four, I felt compelled to buy them for about $1.
So there are my favorites from my last bargain hunting trip. Hope you are finding some great deals your way as well!
I remember my mom or someone in the family have one of those expandable things! I have no idea what it was used for…if anything. haha. What store do you and Carrie go to??
Not sure of the size but the expandable looks like a wooden wine rack. Could use it for rolling pins or bottles.
The expandable also looks like a wine rack to me. It does look a fun find whatever the use! I like the shovel. Stopping by from Frugal Friday.
Cute and useful finds! I really like the little bowls.
There is one like that on ebay for $18.99. advertised as a wine wrack
Thanks for being so helpful! 🙂

Wonderful finds. I love the plate and the bowl.
LOVE LOVE LOVE all your finds! Especially that wine rack!
The wine rack will make a great wall display and a great place for rolled up towels. I did this in our previous home and it made a great wall statement. Decor and function in one. 🙂
