You're Not Gonna Believe the Price!!!

Today I stopped by a little place I'll call the "Junque" store. Since I have discovered it, I stop by occasionally and have only found one or two items which cost maybe .25 to .50 cents. Well, yesterday I hit the motherlode when I stopped by.
Here are more...I told you I got a bunch of cuties. The box will get a coat of black paint and new material and in the above photo I will paint the bottom of the dome white. Aren't all of these things great??? Well, the price was even better.........

Are you ready??? I paid a total with tax of $2.72....did you hear me $2.72...no joke! I just love having a thrifty shopping day like this.

That's some great deal you got. I love glass items. They are so pretty. The heart bowl is my favorite. I'd love to see that box when you've finished redoing it.

Thanks for your comment this morning. Neighbors are wonderful people in our life! I enjoyed reading that I wasn't the only one to get teased. It sounds like you have fun with your neighbor too!

take care,
Dawn

So much fun, and the price, even better. My favorites are the tiny glass cloche and the dome. There's been nothing much here lately. Have a great day! Jackie

Hi Darlene,
sounds like my kinda store! I've noticed you read Joy's blog...guess you saw how she fixed up a little box.
I have one too, but don't know when I'll get around to it...maybe over the weekend.
Have a great day,
Diane

Love a bargain. That box will look great painted. You could paint it to match Lexi's room. By the way I have a Lexi too!

I wan't a cloche so badly...I'd pay more than that just for a cloche! What a deal you got!!!

Nancy said...

Hi Darlene,

You did hit the mother lode! Can't wait to see what you do with them.

About those cylinders. I think I've seen them (maybe Ikea) but I can't remember. Ikea has tons of cute stuff for kids rooms if you ever get a chance to visit one.

Have a wonderful day!

Wow Darlene,
What a steal! You sound like you would be so fun to shop with!
My Mom and her sisters are big into thifting-They have so much fun. There is nothing like the feeling from getting a real good deal.

You did do well! Good thrifting! I think it's almost better when you find something like that box that you can fix up on your own. So much more fun than when it's already "perfect".

Marie said...

No way! You got some great deals! I'd have paid that price for ONE item at my local Goodwill. Good for you!!
