What I Like to Call Treasures

I decided to join Rhoda at Southern Hospitality for Today's Thrifty Treasures. I usually go to yard sales every week but I do not always post what I find! I thought it would be fun to start sharing with all of you....What I like to call treasures!! Be sure to check out Southern Hospitality! I hope you enjoy!
I will h ave to give my mom credit for spotting this treasure 1st! I love candy machines and have always wanted one. I had a friend a long time ago look for me one. They brought me one, only it was more commercial and heavy duty. So needless to say I wanted this one! I was a little nervous to look at the price because most of them are a little pricey!! It said $10.00, I thought to myself " self that is not a bad price but I wonder if they will take less......so my dad asked if they would take $7 and they took it!! YAY! I was excited!! It looks great in my kitchen! I can not wait to fill it with candy!!I love a rain coat! I think they are so cute! I got this one for $3. Now all I need are to boots to match!
As most of you know, I have been dealing with the "whole baby not sleeping good" so I spotted this and thought I would give it a try! It was only $3. I will let you know how it works!
I love me some smocking!! I always have. When I was a little girl that was what I wanted my little girl to wear. One of my babies that I played with even had a smocked bishop that she wore!
LOOK!!!! Check this out!! I got this for $1............can you believe it??
This is so cute! It even has pants to match. $1 I bought about $15 worth of clothes from this sale and they were all $1 and some 50 cents! I was pumped up and HOT. I did have to dig a bit but it was well worth it.
When I went back, I just looked at the boys clothes and look how cute.........$1 I could not leave it there!!

I have wanted a shelf for my cabinet to open the door for more room and I will just say I love it! It made a huge difference. I have tons more space. It was only $1 and at the sale I just could not decide. I am so glad I did not leave it there!
I hope you all had a good as luck as I did!

Great deals on the smocked clothing! I love it too, but it's so expensive usually!

Great buys!! Love the candy machine! I know what you mean about baby not sleeping well....when my twins were babies, my oldest twin would not sleep through the night until he was 13 months! Just in time, as I brought their baby brother home a couple weeks later!

Maggie, so glad you joined the party! You really scored on all those clothes & the candy machine is great. You were smart to pick up that shelf even though you weren't sure about it. Great idea!

You got some good things! I need to post some things that I have gotten from Sage Consignment. I don't yardsale (though I would like to, the lack of funds stopped that...LOL)

Love your blog! I just dropped in via Rhoda's weekly adventure. That shelf added so much more room for storage--way to go. Hope to see you over my way someday...Thanks for sharing your finds with us!
