We started at our favorite flea market then went from there all over the city from one antique mall to another. We even found a new thrift store that is now one of our favorites!
Here are my wonderful thrifted treasures of the day.
And guess what my grand total of the day in $$ was! Oh you won't believe it. I spent under $7.00 on everything in this picture. Yep, and all in loose change! The most I had to count out at any one store or location was a little over $3.00 so using up the heavy change in my purse was not a problem.
The big nice upholstered pillow is new or like new. It was a whopping $1.00. I got it because I have fabric to reupholster it in and it's so firm and large, unlike the expensive pillow forms that Walmart now carries. I just need to find a few more and I'll reupholster them all at the same time.
The Pfaltzgraff "you are special today" plate was .50, and although it's not my china pattern it will do when I'm celebrating family birthdays. A girl just can't leave a special plate that is only .50 sitting there can she, especially of Pfaltzgraff quality
The pictures of the mustard candle shelf do not do it justice. It does need a little stain rubbed on it to prim it up a little more, but in my prim opinion it looks so much better than it did. Look back at the picture of items on the porch, this candle shelf was stained but also had a shiny finish on it.
The pretty wall pocket below mimics an antique wooden scoop. I love it by my back door. I used to have a hanging lantern there but this looks better. I found the chunky olive green candle at Hobby Lobby to stand in it. Just what I envisioned!
I haven't really done anything else with the other items, oh but you know I will be sitting these other little prim treasures around to make Lillie Mae Acres as pretty and cozy as I can.
Well, I hope you enjoyed today's visit. I'm sure thankful that you came by and I can't wait to see what little treasures you've come across at wonderful prices. See you next time.
