Thrifty Thursday - May 10.12

Saturday was quite exciting for me.  It was the 1st yard sale of the season and it was a doozie!  Held at the local Curling Club, the Luteran Church Youth Club held a Penny Auction and Yard Sale to help raise money for their missions trip to the Dominican.  They had some great penny auction item ..... and I'm still awaiting my winning phone call for that pottery fish pitcher, guys!


Did I mention the pork barbeque?  $3 worth of extreme yummy! 

I had a ball at the yard sale.  One lady had a 25 cent table; and yes, every item shown here was 25 cents:  4 vintage mason jars, 4 glass dessert dishes, a jolly little scarecrow for my Autumn door, a Maritime watercolor and these 3 vintage plates.

 Here's some close-ups of the plates.  They'll be lovely for tea parties .....
















..... or maybe just for Mama when she's wanting a little extra special treatment for a Saturday lunch!





This gorgeous local scene was painted by a visiting
artist from China, Jin rong Chen.
These vintage salt 'n' pepper shakers were
50 cents each; as cute as they are, I think I'll pass
them on to my daughter.

 It was a fun, cheap morning.  I hope that's a taste of the season to come.

LUCKY you. Twenty-Five cents. UNBELIEVABLE bargains. LOVE that last plate, the painting and the second salt and pepper shakers. ENJOY. With prices like that you can go shopping more often. Take care.
