Thrifty Finds

I debated back and forth about getting this dresser at the thrift store. I saw it first on Tuesday but didn't have enough money to purchase it. Wednesday, I went to Parents At School so I didn't have a chance to drop in. I walked over there this morning and it was still there. I looked at it again. It is solid wood and although it has been painted, they didn't do too bad of a job. Still, I left it there.


I went over to the grocery store to take out the cash I needed. I went back to the thrift store and looked at it again. Again, I left it there.

I walked over to another thrift store and even though I wasn't really looking at the coffee cups (I have sworn off buying them) I spotted this one behind a couple of mugs. I may keep it for myself since the price has dropped so dramatically on Ebay.


I went back home and called my sister. One of the reasons I was so hesitant on buying the dresser, is because I did not have a way to get it home. I asked my sister if she could meet me there tomorrow if I bought the dresser today. She agreed and I finally went to purchase it.

When I arrived at the thrift store, a lady I knew from the Facebook garage sale pages was getting out of her minivan. I approached her sheepishly and asked if she could help me out by delivering the dresser to my house. She said she could help. My sister lives in another town so this helped a lot. I offered to pay her some cash but she turned it down. There truly are some good people here.

On Thursday, the t.s. has a dice game where you roll a die and a certain number equals a percentage off. A roll of 6 will get you 30% off. I picked up the die and wouldn't you know, I rolled a 6! Now I have to figure out what to do with the dresser. My son needs a better one so I might give it to him. For now, it is sitting in my kitchen pantry.

Sold This... Bought That

Since I purchased a Little Tikes book shelf last week, I no longer needed the plant stand I was using so I sold it on Facebook.


I walked over to the thrift store yesterday and found, not one


not two


but three Transformers



I also found this vintage Reed and Barton bowl. It has a lot of tarnish and I wonder if I should clean it up? It isn't worth much.


I can usually sell these wooden puzzles fairly quickly but the last one I found has been sitting for awhile. I believe that one is a giraffe. The one I found yesterday is a duck sitting on water. It has the alphabet on one side and numbers on the other.



Both the bowl and the duck are listed in my Ebay store. The transformers I'm going to keep for awhile or until Ryker gets tired of playing with them. Check out my Ebay store here.

Ebay Room Video

I made a video of my Ebay room. It cuts out at the end because my Flip kept saying low battery even though I replaced them. I also have a cold so ignore that.

Sold This... Bought That

I sold these two items off Facebook this afternoon. I was using the bathroom shelf but my hubby kept hitting his head on it. Don't ask how, because I have no clue.


Today was the last day of the 50% off sale at the thrift store. I wanted to get this roll of tickets I saw there yesterday, (for rewarding Ryker for good behavior) but I couldn't find it anywhere. I'm assuming it sold. I got this stuff instead.

I love the old wood on this picture frame. Whomever made this, didn't really do a good job as the picture is bubbling all over but I don't care. I still love it. It looks better in real life. It's not as faded as it looks here.



I also bought these 2 Ball canning jars. I found some candles to put inside but I'm not sure what I want to fill them with. (btw the t.s.charges a ridiculous amount for these jars even at half off)



I wish I would have found 2 of this candle holder because I like how it sits inside the jar.


This holder sits above the jar.



If anyone has any idea what I should fill them with, let me know in the comments. Thank you

Sold This... Bought That

A few days ago I went through my Ebay plush and took out the ones that have been sitting forever. These were mostly plush I bought when I first started selling stuffed animals. I would most likely not pick these up again. There were over 20 plush in this pile and I sold them on FB for $10


I found this book shelf at GW. I probably didn't need it but I couldn't pass up such a good deal, especially at GW.


I also got this Big Bird book holder for my Sweet Pickles books.


and with the rest of the money from my sale, I bought this Powerpuff girl figure and a kitty kitty kittens.
