Ten Bucks Will Get You THIS!


Today I visited a new thrift store. 
They hadn't even officially opened yet. 
I think they let me in to keep from having to clean 
a lot more nose prints off the front window.


It was cash only, since they're not officially open. 
The lady told me, "Right now, it's sort of like a garage sale!"

Garage sale prices, too. :) All of this was ten bucks!
Five wire baskets. (Help me figure out how to use them!)

 

I also like this little shutter set...not the fabric inserts so much,
But I can see some crocheted lace there...and a little more distressing...



And this little ceramic cross is so pretty. It was an unwanted Easter present,
according to the inscription on the card it to which it was affixed.


I was pretty excited about this little two-drawer file! 


It is SO industrial! 


I like the look of it, but I'm not sure how useful it will be...


But for Five Bucks...


I just know you'll help me think of some good way to use it!

Word for the Day:

Proverbs 24:3-4



 3 By wisdom a house is built, 
   and through understanding it is established; 
through knowledge its rooms are filled
   with rare and beautiful treasures.

Great finds, Tamala. Are you going to paint the baskets? You could always do a fabric insert. The industrial piece is great for storing small items. I would probably put my 2oz. paints in it.

$10 that's just not fair. I need to move to the US. That filing cabinet alone would be £10 over here !!
Baskets - huh - bathroom with facecloths and soaps or holding cutlery or with a couple of little flower pots for inside or out. Whatever you use them for, they're going to look great.

Major score! What an amazing deal! I think the galvanized drawers would be so cool retro fit into an old dresser and those wire baskets will look good with what ever season it is. Shells for summer, pumpkins for fall, and pincones for winter. Can't wait to see what you do with a your cool junk.

I could use it all. The wire baskets are great for everything, mail, guest bath accessories etc. The shutters I can't ever pass up a shutter.:)

Hi Tamala!
Lucky outing for you- what fun stuff. I'd be doing a makeover on those shutters in a hurry. I know you'll fix them up in a great way.

Revi said...

No - I PAID ten bucks for them! But if you're interested, I know they're cool 'cause you have GREAT style. :)
