Thrift shopping day!

I have not been thrift shopping, yard sale shopping or flea market shopping much at all this year.  The last few days made up for that though.  I found these little dolls and a bag of bracelets at a sale the other day.  Gracelyn played witha the bracelets all day today while we shopped.  $1,25.
The crystals were $1 for each strand. Quick photo of the afghan I finished before I left this morning.  And this was one of the shops that we went to today.  It is on Route 28 north of Brookville, Pa and on the way to Cooks Forest, interesting shop and pretty good prices. Some window screens and a wire basket.  Why can't I get my pictures clear?    $1.50 for everything.  Some summer reads, but with as much as I have laid out to read this summer, it may be next summer until I get to them.  50 cents each. Oh, and a clock radio.  I needed one and it works. $1Lazy Susan!  A picture for my kitchen 50 cents.Lids that Shawnee found for me and a set of bowls for $4.
A basket box for $5 and leopard print fabric to decorate at VBS, $5.  Little stainless dip containers for $1.
An art set of my neighbor's for $7 and these quarter savers that were in with it. And then John kicked into the buying mode and bought this stainless stock pot for $5 and then wine making kit for $15.  Now he is going to be a wine maker.  Some quilt batting for 25 cents and I missed the picture of the picnic jug for $1. Great day spent with my daughter and granddaughter.  We had a great time, visiting and hanging out.  The buys were the icing on the cake!

Wooooow! What a haul.
I imagine you were exhausted after a day like that.
What do you plan to do with the bowls? Paint them different colors?

Ahhh, I love a good buy!

Wow Cathy, you really got some great bargains. I've yet to go garage and thrift shop shopping this year, this post really has me drooling!
