Thrifty and Vintage mix ups!!

Thrifty Thursday


vintage thingies thursday

@ Colorado Lady

Here it is Thursday again, and all

my Thrifty and Vintage treasures have

run smack dab into each other.

Let's see if we can figure it all out.

How about a vintage fan,
and a thrifty frame and cage.

A Thrifty clock, ($2.99)
and lamp ($1.00)

A vintage photo album ($1.00)
thrifty photo album (.25),
a box of cards, both thrifty and vintage (.15)

a "sweep the crumbs off the table thingy".
Thrifty ($1.00)

A Thrifty birdcage (.50) Vintage?? Maybe
Wheel rim. Cooool, and only $1.00
Thrifty old tin. (.10)

And this is the store where i got the bird cage.

It was a really old building,
(like is it safe to walk on the floor?)
but everything was .50!!!
Not much time to look, but did find the bird cage.

Digging through these boxes is my kind of fun.
Have to go back when i have more time. =0))

OK. That's it for now.
Not much time for thriftin' while we are getting new room ready.

Have a super thrifty and vintage day,
and be sure to visit out hosts and see all the other goodies.

Hi Barbara Jean,

Wow, look at that treasure trove of goodies in that place! I want to go there too. My kind of place.
You got some neat stuff. I think I had a green birdcage like that 30 some yrs ago. I liked how you combined the vintage with thrifty.


Dawn said...

Great finds Barbara Jean. That store is something else! I don't mind digging a little but they could use a little tiny bit of merchandising! LOL!

Vonlipi said...

That is a store for me! I love going through all the boxes in search of a treasure!
