Thrifty Finds – July 13

tin man

I have not been able to go to many garage sales in the past 30 days. I have hit one auction sale, that was ok, but not great.  Well this weekend my son has a swim meet in town so I will volunteer to work it. I knew I wouldn’t have time again, so I went out for 1.5 hours on Friday morning.  Most of the items were way over priced, but I did manage to find a few items.

This tin man create with different size tin cans is so unique I just had to buy him.  Haven’t decided if I will keep him to hang for Halloween or not.  I like different, unique, but cute items.  This one fit the bill.

Pink Damask Napkins

This one I need your help.  It is a Pink Damask Napkin set from Penneys.  They have never been open.  So would you open them to take photos to sell or leave as is and try to get some better photos?  I don’t want to open them since they are new, old stock.  However, I just don’t know that any one will buy them if I can not get a good photo.  Any suggestions? Edited:  I did list it after taking photos of it still in the package.  If you want to see how I took the photos check out the listing.  It has been sold.

Wood Divided Bowl

Found this divided wood bowl that I want to redo.  Haven’t decided the color yet, but it will make a lovely center piece.

Blue Samsonite Suitcase

You know me, can’t leave a hard shell suitcase behind.  This one isn’t in the best condition on the outside but the inside is spotless.


Finally this fan.  Haven’t had an old fan for over a year.  Love the look and shape of these old fans.  Seems that others do too.  Need to get this listed soon while it is still hot.

So did you have a change to go searching for thrifty finds this weekend?
