Demijohn-Horchow Linens-Polo Handbag

What does all of this have in common?  Goodwill and a yard sale at a nearby neighborhood of Million Dollar homes.  Gotta' love it!!!

Goodwill didn't have anything that I couldn't live without except this great find.  A gorgeous demijohn.

 See the price.  Of course I had to have it.  Yip-skip!!!

 Then I saw a yard sale sign at a nearby area that is very upscale.  All of the homes are at least a Million Dollars.  I thought maybe they might have some great finds and I sure was right.  Most things I couldn't afford or use, however I did find a couple of things.  Horchow placemats new in the bag.

                                                  Look how beautiful.  A set of four for $5.

The detailing is stunning.

                                           Another set of 4 placemats for $5 also

 So pretty and delicate.  Both of these will make fabulous gifts for special people I know.  (I'm still trying to stick to my goal to get all my Christmas shopping done way early.)

 Same yard sale and a fantastic summer handbag.  Brand new with all the tags still on it.

                                                        Another super bargain for $5.

There were some fabulous designer clothing at this same sale, however I can't wear a size 6 (darnit) and I don't need any evening wear or tennis outfits.  I was hoping to see some furniture or home decor, but none at all.  I still think I found a couple of treasures.

I am linking to the following parties:
Thrifty Thursday @ Tales From Bloggeritaville
Treasure Hunt Thursday @ Blue Creek Home
Thrifty Things Friday @ The Thrifty Groove
Frugalicious Friday @ Finding Fabulous

Thanks so much for stopping by, I always look forward to your visits.


  1. Great finds today Marty! Thanks for sharing.

    Have a great day.

  2. You did find wonderful things. Those placemats are yummy!!

  3. You got some great things, Marty! You know those Horchow placemats were probably 10 times that much brand new. Love your bag, too. I often wonder what kind of trash the million dollar homes throw out on bulk pick-up day. I'd love to drive by and see. Good for you to keeping to your plan for buying Christmas gifts throughout the year. I've picked up a few myself, but I have to get them all in the same place or I'll forget all about them!

  4. Fabulous finds, Mary!!

  5. Oops! Marty! Left off the T accidently. I am speed blog browsing this evening.
