Today's Thrifty Treasures.....

Be sure to stop by Rhoda's at Southern Hospitality and see what all everyone found this week. Even though I was having my own garage sale, I had to browse through some others. Some school clothes for Lexi.
* Shorts $3.00 each
* Top (new) $2.00 My neighbor is a teacher and she had books out that she wanted to get rid of. The boxed books are the 9 volume set of Little House books by Laura Ingalls Wilder. They are new! She teaches 1st grade and these are all high 4th grade and 5th grade reading level and are all in Lexi's reading range for school testing.
* All books pictured $5.00 * Wooden pose able figurine $1.00
* Three bags of buttons $1.50
* Silver tray $1.00 * Bright colored rug (out back under the rocker) $3.00
I always think it is fun to see what goodies I can find. Also, if you didn't see my grand total for my garage sale go here.
