Thrifty Farmhouse Finds (For Under $10)


Hi everyone and happy Monday! How did any of you who had to deal with storm Jonas make out? I hope OK. We were fine despite the almost 30 inches of snow we had dumped on us. No power outages and by Sunday afternoon the main roads, for the most part, were dry and clear.

Over the weekend I shared with you a thrift store chandy I picked up last week at ReStore. She was only $15 and I just love the way she sparkles in my kitchen.



But what I didn't share with you were the other thrifty items I found while doing a little shopping with my sister Kim. You see it was her...ah...well big birthday last Tuesday and what she loves to do is thrift shop, so we were on a mission to seek out new places and to do just that! The first place we hit was 
located on Routes 202 and 263 in Buckingham Pa. This shop is absolutely adorable and is filled to the brim with tons of goodies. What I found there was a beautiful tableware service for 7. 



I fell in love with the pretty rose pattern, it is so different than anything else I own and the set was only $6! (They even threw is a cute basket for me to carry my new treasure home.)


Later in the week we stopped at the Holy Redeemer Thrift Store in Hatboro Pa. Neither of us had ever been there before so we had lots of fun milling around and checking out all of their goodies. I picked up this pretty teapot for a whopping $2. It is going on the shelf above the back slider going out to the screened-in porch.


Then on my way to the check out at ReStore to buy my pretty chandy, I picked up this rather weathered white and black enamel pot for one dollar.


I think the pot rounded out this week's Farmhouse inspired collection quite well.


So my total for all three items came out to just $9.  Needless to say I was a squealing!! How about you...have done any thrifting yet this year?


Stay warm and wishing you a great week!

  5. NO. I haven't been Trifling yet this year. Didn't realize it until you said something... must remedy that :)
    Beautiful flatware. The tea pot is a companion piece to some cups I got a few years ago.
    Enjoy!!! Stay warm . Today is one of the warmest days we have had in a week , 50 as I type... beats the 32 we had yesterday for sure.
    Hugs, Gee

  7. These are gorgeous finds and, as a bargain shopper, I can appreciate them. My mom and I are always tempted to stop at garage sales and thrift stores when we are on the road, it's resulted in some of our best "oldie but goodies!" Cheers. xo

  8. Barbara, you are off to a good start. Love all your things and like I said before, the chandy looks fantastic over the kitchen table. So glad you have dug out from under all that snow. Happy Tuesday..Judy

  10. Wow what awesome finds! Looks like you have some amazing places to shop. We live in the Nashville TN. area and I thought around 8 inches of snow was bad but after reading you got 30 inches 8 seems like nothing at all!!

  11. We had enamel pots just like this when I was growing up. I'm only 26 but we used these bitten down pots all the time. So many memories when I see those things. Thank you for sharing your many goodies. I came over from Elizabeth and Co's link party.
