Today's Thrifty Treasures

I made out like a bandit at the Goodwill!! These are the goodies that I found:

A set of 4 woven straw-like place mats. But not a cheap straw... they are thick and sturdy. Definitely not flimsy at all. All four... $2.00!


Next, I found two pieces of fabric... both are over a yard and a half each! $1.00 for both.

I found some white Oneida dishes with palm trees. 4 large plates and 4 bowls. $3.00 for all.



All of this...


...for $6.00!

Warning: You will be seeing these items in an upcoming tablescape. ;)

Another thrifty (but new) find this weekend...
Gingham fabric... $1.50 a yard at Walmart! I picked up a few colors that aren't always the easiest to find at the Hobby Lobby or JoAnn's: Orange, Navy, Aqua and light Blue.

Those are my findings from my weekend treasure hunt! For more fabulous finds, check out Rhoda's Southern Hospitality!

That fabric is great. It is so hard to find gingham in bold colors.

Love the fabric the most. I must get to Walmart. I've been trying to stay away from stores as they make me want to spend money. Go figure!

You did make out like a bandit! Love those dishes - how cute are they! The straw mats do look nice and thick and who doesn't love gingahm fabric. Lucky you that your Walmart still carries fabric mine closed that department many years ago!
