100th Post! Frugal Finds From the New Place...

A couple of months back, I found a new, convenient and cheap thrift store.
Last week, I found this little guy and a flock of 4 more of different types - $3 for all.

I like the color if this one.
I didn't show them all,
since only birds of a feather flock together.

At the same shop on a different trip, I found this cute little
milk bottle - half pint sized - for a buck.

Yesterday, I found these lidded baskets with
cool fasteners - $3 for both. I think they'll be painted
either white or gray...

Before I left, I asked how much this little silver frame was.
The little rabbits and ribbons are charming...
The nice man behind the counter said it was a buck. SOLD. 

It had writing all around the back of the frame.

And at the bottom was more -

Arthur Court - 1991

It's pewter, and I saw similar ones on Ebay for $12.50.

 Word for the Day:

Genesis 1:21
So God created the great creatures of the sea and
every living and moving thing with which the water teems,
according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind.
And God saw that it was good.

May all your treasure hunting be GOOD!

Revi, what a milestone. Congratulations. So what do you paint the baskets with? I've not tried it and would love to see how they turn out. I just bought a lidded box with the same coloring and I would love to change it.

You got some great bargains! I think those baskets will look fantastic painted. I hope you share the completed project in a blog post, I'd love to see them when you're done with them.

Your 100th post! Great Job! Love your new finds. You have an eye for finding the good stuff. My favorite is the little milk bottle. Could it have been used for cream?
