We had a blast this last Saturday. K and I went out for our Saturday morning "date" hitting a bunch of yard sales. I had mapped out some that I wanted to check out, but that was only the tip of the iceberg! They were everywhere!

We hit a retirement home rummage sale and got a great dessert rack (In desperate need of some paint love), a needed frame, some Legos and a network cable. We then found some other sales and scored with 8 cloth napkins, a journal, a Mustang book, an optical mouse, and more Legos. K found and air purifier for his compressor and I found an adorable dress. We even found some treasures in a box marked "free-go put it in
your car".

perfect frame for our family picture

The best find of the day was a 5 tray food dehydrator. Guess how much...wait for it...ladies and gentlemen it was a whopping...are you sitting down... 50 cents! Can you believe it! I almost didn't even ask about it! Overall I say we were extremely pleased with our weekend hunt! Best of all we only spent $9.60 for our treasures, definitely puts a smile on my face...

The BEST find this weekend!

Join Rhonda at Southern Hospitality for Todays Thrifty Treasures and see what treasures everyone else found...

  9. Wow, you sure made your dollar S-t-r-e-t-c-h! Love the dehydrator and the dessert tiers.

  10. Wow, you did well with finding bargains.

  11. Ha! I have that very same "Wanted" picture that my husband and I made on our honeymoon in Gatlinburg 14 years ago! Good finds!

  12. Amy Lynne,I never seem to find what I set out after when I go out thrifting, so my little find was a pleasant surprise on Sat. I love them on my potting bench and hope I can get my herbs to grow and flourish. You made some terrific buys, yourself. Having a dessert/plate tier is a boon when entertaining. I've never used a dehydrator before- do they really work well? :-) Sue

  13. Woo hoo!!! You found some thrifty deals. I love the desert rack. And 50 cents for the dehydrator? Get out of here.
