I decided to go thrift store shopping, Hobby Lobby clearance, Home Goods and Hancock Fabrics. I will start with the thrift store finds since this is Debbiedoos party day for thrifty goods! I went to 3 Goodwill stores and 2 Salvation Army stores.
I normally don't look at clothes because I am almost 6' tall and pretty thin. Things don't usually fit me straight off the rack. However, a dress caught my eye (too fancy) and it got me looking for light weight cool dresses to wear in this heat! I am tired of shorts and would like to look cute occasionally when I leave the comforts of home or for my honey when he comes home from work! I found 4 cute ones. The first two need to be hemmed so they will be just slightly above my knee. They were all $4.50 each and are still like new!
The red one is strapless and I have a light weight summer sweater in white that I can wear with it! It was so cute on!
I am a huge fan of black and white so I immediately fell for this one!
They are all so lightweight and cool. Some were Jones New York brands. So for $13.50, I have 4 dresses!
When we purchased the $15 dresser, they had leftovers from their sale and we bought a few items cheap! Each of these outdoor lights were $1. I am going to paint them and use on the deck door and one for outside the basement door. One looks rough but it was still in the box. Paint will fix it!
These two plant holders were .25 total so I figured I could paint them and line them with the brown plant bed stuff! (Not sure what it is called)
This large planter was only .25 and I figure I can paint it. My hubby thought it looked hideous but I told him to trust me, for .25 I can make it BEAUTIFUL!
Then off to Hobby Lobby! They were having 80% off their remaining garden stuff and I found these two planters with the perfect color of red in them for our deck! $3.20 each!!! Snatched!!
I also found this chicken that just called my name for $6. Not sure where to put him but he kind of looks cute here on my mantle!!
Then I hit the clearance at the fabric section and found the perfect checked backing fabric for my future kitchen curtains. Here you see the rooster fabric I bought on ebay a year ago and the new backing fabric. Good match???? It was $4 a yard and was 54" wide so it is a perfect fit. They only had 6 yards left which is exactly what I needed!! It was meant to be!
So there you have it for my thrifty shopping adventures!! Please go on over to debbiedoos for her garage salen party and see all the treasures that others have found!
