My Thrifty Finds This Week:
I got all the following at the Thrift Store I work at:

The plates were .25 a piece
they will be repurposed into other wall decor
either spray paint or put mirrors in the center
The 2 of stands have been spray painted
You can them on this post:
I got the light fixture for $1 I'm not sure how I will paint this - or if I will
The wire basket was .50
I also got 7 balls of yarn for .50 a piece they will become a scarf
a cpl of metal zippers for .50 a piece - they will become necklaces


  1. Hi Jo,
    Putting mirrors in the center is such a creative your bargains.

  3. Great finds! Love the shapes of the plates & bet the mirrors are so pretty in the center.

  4. I'm anxious to see how you turn a zipper into a necklace!!

  5. I think spray painting the plates is a great idea!

  6. Love the light fixture. The plates will look good painted.

  7. Great cheap finds - love the texture on those plates - please post them when you fix them up !

  8. You really did get some thrifty buys! I love the light fixture. Would love to see the plates when you are finished with the transformation.
