Thrifty Finds

Sometimes when I find something that I really like (usually silver or Wilton Armetale) I search for it on the internet to see what it cost originally. I paid $3.99 for this Double Wine Chiller with Aluminum insert.



I found this:

It can be found at Maison Drake for $149.99 (was $184.00) I think I got a good deal.


And this little gold mirror, originally from TJ Maxx:

I’m going to make a wall grouping of these:

I have found several, all different sizes and I hope to make it look like this:

I am working on an upstairs bedroom, and I think my collection will look great up there!  You see, I don’t  do just randomly buy cheap stuff without a plan.

When I saw this, I had several ideas.

I could rolls towels and put them on here

or I could use it to hold wine, of course.

 Have you found anything lately?  I love the thrill of the hunt!

Happy thrifting to you!

    Love it Debbie. You do have a good eye too, and look beyond the piece. I try to do the same while thrifting. It is so much fun to look at something that others see as junk and make it beautiful in our homes.

    You mean I should have a plan for the cheap stuff I buy? 😉 I find that like hardwood floors, it needs to sit around for awhile to acclimate to the house…only then does it find the perfect place! Awesome finds – really love the wall shelf/sconce idea!

    Love the corbels…simply perfect! I almost bought a very similar ice bucket at the Goodwill yesterday for $4.99. You have me second guessing myself now…darnit! I wonder if it is still there?

      I find that if I pick it up, I need to buy it. Otherwise, some one is right there behind me and they’re going to buy it.

    Love the wine holder used as towel holder idea. I bought lots of Halloween decor at the local thrift stores. Recently found out that I bought a Willow House Highland Casserold Caddy for 4.98 at the thrift store. It retails for $39.96, but is on sale for $21.96. I didn’t realize what I had until last weekend when I was perusing the Willow House sale catalog online.

    Maybe you should do a little hunting for me! You came home with some serious “kill.” I love the gold frame.
    Have a great weekend, thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment on the joy pot too!

    I never thought to use a wine rack as towel storage. Great idea. Looks like you found some good stuff. I have been in a thrifting funk the last few weeks. Hope it picks up soon.

    I swear you find the best stuff!! I am so jealous of that wine bucket, I mean really jealous! Can’t wait to see what fabulousness you put together with all of your finds.
