Treasures-Goodwill-Dollar Tree-Ross


I had fun doing some thrifty shopping again this week.  My bounty wasn't huge, however I fell in love with it all.  I am linking to Thrifty Thursday @ Tales From Bloggeritaville.  Be sure to visit and see all the bargains everyone has found this week.

I love to find pretty small bowls and dishes to use on end tables to hold candy or nuts, or to just look pretty.  This little bowl has such a beautiful pattern and colors.  For $1 at GW, it was definitely a keeper.


I'm sure it is really old too.  This is the mark on the back.


This small dessert plate has such pretty colors also, and I love all the detail.  It was also $1 at GW


This is the mark I found on the back of it.


I love pretty white bowls and the raised intricate detail on this one is stunning.  There aren't any markings on the back.  It cost $2.99 at GW. 


A pretty little pitcher that again had a beautiful design on it.  $1.99 at GW.


I've been on the lookout for some new picture frames with a little personality.  This one came from the Dollar Tree.  So only $1.  It will probably get a new finish.


Now all of you know that I LOVE roosters, so when I saw this candlestick at Ross, of course I had to have it.  Love the chippy white finish and only $5.99. 

A few fun finds, now I can't wait to play with them all.

Thanks so much for stopping by, I always appreciate your visits.

  1. I see your comments on other blogs so followed your link. You have some great finds.I would love to treasure hunt like that but I am "full up." Can't find room for what I have, much less anything new. Wish you could shop my discard pile. Fairfieldhousenj.com was hosting a blog sale. Next time she does that I should join in. I have lots to sell.

  8. Hi Miss Marty! You just made my day when I read that you made your date with the robot. It just makes me smile when "we" girls can come together and support one another. ps...love your goodies too :)

  9. Oh, Marty, all your Goodwill finds are lovely!!! I especially love the bowl and plate.

    And Ross is one of my favorite stores. I can pretty much always find something there that I HAVE to buy...usually it's a dress, but I HAVE found some great home decor there. Great rooster you found!!

    Tomorrow I'm hitting my Goodwill. I have a 20% coupon that expires tomorrow, so I'm hoping to find a bunch of goodies (20% off your entire purchase). When I drop off my donations, instead of getting a tax receipt, I get the coupon.

    Have a wonderful day.

    Blessings,
    Patti

  19. Beautiful, Marty!
    LOVE those dishes -- I can't resist the odd beautiful dish either, especially when it's only a buck.

    The rooster is adorable, too -- but I can't believe that frame. Wow -- I have not been to DT in awhile... must go NOW.

  26. Marty,

    I love the pretty things you found. They are all so nice. I like the picture frame as is. Gotta check DT. :)

    I made a little run to the Sweet Tea Consignment Shop at lunch today. I'll share my goodies soon. Of course they were terrific bargains. I am so addicted! The shop owner told me to bring some of my stuff in for consignment. I think I will do that. All the cabinets and closets at my house are bulging with all my loot.

    Gotta stop.... yeah right!!!

  31. YOur plates are beautiful! Our GW is expensive, very proud of their junk, and most of it is junk. Nothing worth what you got! Love your rooster candlestick. You did well today!

  32. Let me say, that you have the best luck at GW. You found some really neat things for great prices.
    Love the new candle stick.

    ReplyDelete
  33. What great finds Marty!
    Love the Grimwades dish - I've checked the registration number in one of my books for you (This is the year the design was registered, not the actual manufacture date) numbers 725899 to 740458 were registered in 1928.
    I'd imagine that the pattern wouldn't run on for more than a couple of years.
    The Noritake is sweet too, and I love the rooster candlestick.

    Best wishes
    Rose H
