Half Off Wednesday at the Thrift Stores

I wasn't going to go. I really wasn't. But suddenly some undeniable force pulled me to the car and I was on the road. It's a jungle out there on Wednesdays. I found this iron maple leaf and these two ecru Martha Stewart table toppers at the first store. The leaf was a dollar and the table toppers, which are brand new, were 3.00.


This very old picnic basket was 1.99 but half off. I'll use it in the garden.


This very sturdy oak table was 12.00 and was half off. I have been looking for a table to aluminum leaf and this might be the one.


This copper griffin which looks a lot like my weathervane on the guest house was 99 cents.


Another 99 cent find. I am going to hang it o the fence by my grape vines.


This is going in my garden shed so I can hang my gardening aprons on it. 1.99


I think this is an old magazine holder. It is very well made and will make a good garden trug. Half off of 3.99.

Some of you noticed that Teddy was limping in yesterday's video. She occasionally develops inter digital cysts which are extremely painful for her. The doctors are not quite sure why these come and go. I have lotion which helps a lot 'IF' I can manage to get her to let me put it on her. Also, for a few people out there that don't know this....Teddy is a girl. Theodora Puddle Pup, though she does snore like a guy!!!

"I want a treat too, mommy!" (in my most whiny child voice). Lucky pup! I love her name--that makes me smile so big.

Poor little Teddy, I too, hope she's feeling better! It was so cute how her head snaps up at the word "treat"-Adorable!

HALF- PRICE DAY!
You lucky dog! LOVE all your finds!

Erin @ I Heart New England said...

You have some wonderful thrift stores near you! You're always finding such beautiful things!

Poor little Teddy :( I didn't know she had a cyst. Send her many hugs for me. And what a cute video! I loved when you said the word "treat" and her ears perked up♥

Rebecca said...

Wow, what a great thrift day.
I love the copper griffin!

Hugs to Teddy! xoxo

Ha...you should hear my wife snore!

All Together Dead said...

once again splendid finds.

Wishing Miss T a speedy recovery.

Rue said...

She sure knows the word "treat!" She still looks a tad miffed about the snow though!

Good finds today! I love the old picnic basket!

Suzie said...

Teddy sure knows the word T-R-E-A-T, doesn't she? I hope that she lets you put the lotion on her paw. What a Diva. Reminds me of one of my cats. She probably thinks that all dogs have humans that love them as much as you love her. Don't disillusion her.

I continue to be amazed at all of the wonderful finds you get at the thrift shops, and the prices!!! IF I could even find anything like you do, at the few shops in this area, it would cost a lot more.
