Thrifty Thursday: Thrift Store Finds
I stopped by the thrift store today more on a whim than anything else as I keep hoping to run into a nice cabinet or a cheap, but nice, bookcase to use for some of my books. Came up empty handed there, but I did find some cool stuff!
2 pinwheels for .25 each.
These will be going into the Easter basket for the kiddos.
A reusable waterproof bed pad for 5.00 new in the box.
I have desperately needed a second bed pad for my son since he tore the second one he has (which makes washing his bedding that much more challenging every day), so I was thrilled to find it. It will definitely come in handy.
I found some pink lacy material for .25 that I figure I'll use to dress up doll dresses or something come Christmastime.
1 My Little Pony "Pop". It's a toy that you build yourself and design the hair and everything. I thought my daughter would definitely like this for Christmas as she kept wanting me to buy one for her last year (and what they wanted for them new was ridiculous). I got this one brand new in the box for 1.75.
1 Harry Potter Clue Game for 4.50.
The game has all it's pieces that I could see, had the direction sheet and had pretty much the entire pad where you check off suspects and clues. I had priced this thing on Amazon for my daughter for Christmas and it was at least 21.00. So, one cheap Christmas gift down :).
1 bag of quilt batting for 1.00.
1 speed control for a sewing machine for 5.00.
My husband has been looking for one of these, so I grabbed it. If it turns out to be something he can't use, I'm going to see if my mother-in-law needs it as she has said in the past that she needed a sewing machine pedal for another machine she has.
1 box of snap fasteners for .25.
This was a "duh" type of mistake as I forgot that my step mom had sent me tons of snap fasteners in her pinata boxes to me, but they'll get used, so not that big of a deal.
And really, how can you not love that obviously 70's cover? Vintage cookbooks are awesome :).
So, there you are, my finds for today. Find anything cool lately?
