Thrifty Treasures Monday!

I was ready set ready to go out.  
Ads in my pocket, comfy outfit, set to go with my ones and quarters.
But just as I grabbed my keys two little boys asked excitedly:
"Are you going to yard sales?"
Um, er, maybe...ok - YES. 

I've never seen flip flops fly onto feet so fast!
It was a good day to take them - there were hardly any and mostly junk.
They are thrilled with the few new toys that they got and I did manage to find some brand new Gap shirts in Graham's size.
9 pieces of clothing for him (some with tags!) for $17.00
Not bad!

I did find a few things for the house at the last sale that I'm pretty excited about...
Large wire basket - $3.00
Scroll star - $2.00 
Large black distressed mirror - $20.00
This looks a lot like the one I've admired at Lowe's a few times for $75.00!  Sweet!
Now to decided where to put everything!

To see more fun yard sale finds, visit Thrifty Treasures Monday over at Rhoda's place!

Love that mirror but then again I would seeing that I have one almost identical to it. My mom got the huge frame at an auction for me and then I bought the mirror to go in it. Love your finds.
