Thrifty Finds

I went out thrift shopping with my mom and our good friend Krissy yesterday. Krissy showed us some great new places and if you're ever in the Redmond/Bellevue area of Washington you should check out the Children's Hospital Thrift Store. It's incredibly clean, the prices are low for what I normally see in thrift stores AND the profits from the store benefit children. Win-win-win!

Here are some of the thrifty things I picked up for a grand total of $6.10:

A wooden bowl. I think it would be perfect on our coffee table or to add a rustic touch on a bookshelf.

A carved wooden candle holder. I'll show you where this little guy ends up when I finish up my projects in a little over a week.

A silver plated mint julep cup! This was only $1.60 (still needs a bit of polishing) but it'll make the perfect vase for flowers.

What are your favorite thrift stores?


  1. Hi Monica,
    Thanks for your note, but I wanted to let you know it is Cindy's husband who is having the surgery tomorrow. God knows who so thank you for your prayers for them (you are not the only one that thought it was us, so changed my post.)

    PS great finds!

  2. I have a couple silver cups, love them. One I use for my makeup brushes and the bigger one for flowers. Thanks for stopping over today, nice to "meet" you.

  3. Monica, now way! I am so going with you next time! Why did I not know that you live in my area (I live in Sammamish)? I used to follow you and I clearly need to remember to pay more attention to you! (I am now a follower).

    LOVE all your finds! You scored!

    Happy weekend to you!


    P.S PCC in Issaquah has a great fair outside tomorrow promoting health and beauty. Tons of great vendors and awesome samples.

  4. Love the finds!! The mint cup was a great deal, I've always wanted to get one of those for a little flower bouquet.
