I just found Rhoda's "Thrifty Treasures" blog party and thought I should start participating. It certainly gives me another excuse to go to garage/estate sales on the weekend! I'm posting about some recent "thrifty finds" that I just love, especially since I grabbed them at the end of an estate sale for 75% off the marked price!!!
This wonderful clear acrylic container ended up costing 50¢--and gives me lots of storage for fun colorful ribbon--it already had all the red ribbon in it, too!

This brass tray was another of the great treasures I found there also--less than $2!!! I hope to find the perfect spot to display it.

Be watching for more treasures in the future. Meanwhile, go over to Southern Hospitality and read about Rhoda's and other blogger's Thrifty Treasures.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm fairly new to the party too, but I love seeing what other people find on their treasure hunts! Looks like you got a great deal on that plastic container, perfect for ribbons- that probably cost more than 50 pennies at a place like The Container Store!
