FABULOUS FINDS AROUND TOWN ON FRIDAY

GIVEAWAY ALERT: SEE MESSAGE AT END OF POST!



I ventured out really early on Friday to a few garage sales and here are just a few of the little treasures I managed to find:


Currently, this 3 tier stand is my favorite for $2. I have already polished up the brass parts and it sits proudly on my new granite countertop in my kitchen.


I grabbed this WM.Rogers silverplated serving tray with removable center bowl--I'm thinking a $5 FANCY way to serve chips and dips?


I couldn't pass up the white items: 2 Fire King, 1 Fiesta bowl, and probably an Avon piece: total for all 4: only $2.75


Of course these "shades" and mink cuffs will work beautifully with my finds from Tuesday's post! Total for glasses and cuffs: $2.00



If you would like to see what I did with a little green paint to transform some of the other items in the first picture check out this other recent blog post.
If you enjoy the thrill of finding treasures at garage/yard/estate sales then head over to Rhoda's Southern Hospitality Blog for her fun party "Today's Thrifty Treasures".

Hi Suzanne, I really like the tiered tray- perfect for little cookies and candies. And you could serve ME dip and crackers on your silverplate tray. Yum...
