Treasure Trove Tuesday - This Week's Thrifting Finds

09 August
It was a pretty good weekend for treasure hunting again and I have a few goodies to share!

Thrifting Finds

I thought this set of place mats was cute!

I love the little strawberries, wouldn't they be cute at a summer picnic?

Price $1.25, Value $14 - $16.

I found a box full of old Reader's Digest books so I picked out some based on the cute covers! I think they are fun to display just for their covers :o) These remind me of old flour sacks.

Price $1.00 each, Value $6 - $8 each.

The cover on this book is in pretty sad shape.

Inside is very nice.

And it's a first edition!

Price $1.00, Value $15 - $20.

I loved this children's suitcase despite the condition, it is missing the handle and the edges are pretty rough.

Price $1.00, Value $12 - $14 (I might keep this though, I like to store craft supplies in cute little boxes)

Dresser trays are always popular.

Price .50 cents each, Value $14 - $16 each.

I thought this cute little Valentine shadow box that someone made was sweet.

Price $1.00, Value $14 - $16.

A box of cards, the box is pretty cute and there were some of the original cards (top right) still inside along with some others.

Price $1.00, Value $1.00 - $2.00 per card.

An adorable little plastic wall pocket.

Price $2.00, Value $10 - $12.

Wouldn't these be cute on a gallery wall in a little boy's bedroom?

It's funny how they look like a set but each is signed by a different artist!

Price $1.00 for the set, Value $12 - $14 for the set.

This cutting board is pretty cute I think.

Price .50 cents, Value $12 - $14.

This little mirror is very heavy and old. I am keeping it and the cute carved heart shaped frame.

Price $1.00 for the mirror, .50 cents for the frame, Value $12 - $14  for the mirror, $6 - $8 for the frame (if I were going to sell them).

I thought this little handmade purse was cute! It's made with two wash cloths and crochet details!

Price .50 cents, Value $8 - $10.

This little fish has such a funny look on his face!

Price .75 cents, Value $20 - $22.

And two large milk glass pitchers! I love the one on the right!

Price $3.00 each, Value $25 - $30 each.

That's it, did you see anything you like?

  1. Wow! You really scored some wonderful finds!! Especially love the suitcase & shadow box, but I really love them all! Thrift stores or yard sales?

    1. Thanks Florence! The suitcase is my favorite I think!


  2. Love the little child's case the most. I think you're crafty enough you could come up with a new handle for that thing in no time. :)

    1. Thanks Melissa! I thought I could make a new handle pretty easy too... I was thinking of just braiding some pieces of fabric in the colors of the case and using that!


  3. Love your finds. Don't know where you find all these great items but they are all unique and wonderful. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thanks Marie! We have a lot of really great thrift stores where I live and my mom and I hit some yard sales almost every weekend! Since I have to keep my booths at the antique mall stocked as well as 2 online stores I have the perfect excuse to do all this shopping! Ha Ha!


  4. So many pretty things but the milk glass pitchers are my fav's!!

  5. Great finds! Love the child's suitcase. It is one of the sweetest things I've seen in a long time. The handmade purse is so unusual and the colours of that fish are lovely but yes it does have a funny look on its face. Like it's saying "huh?".

  6. Are you doing anymore creative rooms posts like last year? Love to see them

    1. Hi Liz, I haven't done any room redos for awhile. The last ones I did were my craft studio and my living room. You can check those out by going to the menu item "My Home" if you missed them. I am gathering up things and planning to redo my bedroom again soon though!
