This was another inexpensive thrifting week for me. It seems that everything I wanted to buy was just $1.
Either I’m becoming
cheaper thriftier than I’ve ever been or it’s just one big coincidence that everything I see lately that’s more than $1 seems overpriced to me.
It’s probably the former, but I ‘ll just keep telling myself it’s the latter. 🙂
I’m collecting skeleton keys… for guess what? A wind chime! I bet you didn’t see that coming. 🙂
Except for the hot pink key this lot of skeleton keys cost me one dandy of a dollar.
I found the hot pink key years ago, but I don’t believe I’ve showed it before. Now only I could find a hot pink key… right? lol.
Here it is strutting its hot pink stuff with a few vintage doll house brass miniatures… a stein, a candelabra, a clock… on my.
A watering can, a telephone, and an iron… oh why?
Why? Because this lot of six only cost me one beautiful buckeroo.
I’ve seen some of these on etsy for $8-$9 each so this was a great deal.
This little metal heart box is so sweet with its rose on top with adjustable metal petals. I have a thing for filigree work… whether it’s metal, wood, or fabric.
I don’t think this little box is worth much but it’s pretty, and it only cost me one lovely loonie!
I also have a rather unexplainable love for metal goblets… silver, copper, brass, pewter…. it doesn’t seem to matter what they’re made of I have to have them, when they’re a good price that is.
Like these two Viking plate goblets that cost me one puny twonie.
But they still count because they were $1 each. 🙂
And this crudely made wrought iron plant hanger is my fave. Its curlicues grabbed me by the heart strings and wouldn’t let go.
The wrought pieces appear to have been threaded through holes in the main rod before being bent into the curlicues.
You can see it a little better here… and look at all that lovely rust. It looks very old to me.
I absolutely love it… and it cost me what? Just a dollar… and a smile to get the price down from two dollars to one… and it worked! lol.
Never underestimate the power of a smile. 🙂
Have you found any $1 treasures lately?
Thanks so much for reading and until next time… keep on keepin’ on.
