Some New Buys


Today, I will be sharing some new Buys!!!!

It has been some time since I did a post like this because I have been trying to be good and stay out of the stores.........

Last week was our Church Flea Market and I could not resist.....

This is what I came home with!!!!
2 Colanders......
The small one was 25 cents and the larger one was 75 cents!!!
I may be using the small one for something I have in mind for Christmas....

Speaking of Christmas.......

When I looked down under one of the tables and found a bag full of these paper mache angels, I squealed!!!!
These 3 angels have paper cones inside of them allowing them to stand.....
These 2 angels are ornaments.......
This one did not have wings but I am sure I can find some to glue on.......
All these Angels were $5.00!!!!

This sweet lace Angel was new with the price tag of $6.99 still on it........
You can see that it was marked $1.00...

This beard box was only $2.00......
I will most likely paint it and maybe use it for storage in my craft room.......

All of these clay pots were $1.00!!
2 wood bird houses priced at 25 cents each!!
A large cardboard book box for 50 cents.....
And these small pillars were $2.00 each!!
My total was $15.00!!!

Not a bad haul!!!

I also want to share a few things that I bought at Dollar Tree.......
I bought this place mat several years ago in Dollar Tree .....
I was thrilled to find this oven mitt and towels to match!!
I bought 2 towels.......

And then I found this tin planter in the garden section......
So cute........
At Big Lots, I found this garden toad stool house.......
Isn't it sweet???
 Also in Big Lot's, I found this cute sign......
I had a $5.00 Rewards coupon so it was free when I spent $15.00 because the price on it was $5.00!!

Here it is on the back of the house in our small patio in the back........
I will be sharing our patio soon.......

And at Ollie's, I found this garden table which was perfect to set my Gnome Fairy Garden in a beverage tub on......
  It was $20.00 and I had a 15% off coupon!!!
I think it looks cute with my Gnome Fairy Garden Tub on top of it!!
And at Michael's, these outdoor mats/rugs were on sale for half price at $15.00 each!!
Plus I had a 20% off Entire Purchase coupon so the 2 rugs only cost $25.49!!

They are 4 foot by 6 foot and we are going to use them in the back Patio.......
So I did do a bit of shopping recently.......

I hope you enjoyed seeing my "New Buys"!!!

I am working on my Summer Patriotic decorating so I will be sharing that with you soon........

So I hope you will be back to visit again soon.......

And thanks to those who took the time out of their busy day to spend a little bit of time with me!!

  1. LOL- I knew you couldn't resist a church sale. lol I love those angels and would have arm-wrestled you for the larger colander.
    Hope you and Joe have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. xo Diana

  2. Church sales are the best. The pillars I would have snagged right away. Look forward to your patio.

  3. I loved your treasures; I had to smile because I just bought a new to me colander at Salvation Army for .75. My SO other thanked me. My old one had no handles and was missing one leg, but it was a gift from a friend... I think it may become a hanging plant container! It's only 45 years old! I LOVE church sales; will look forward to seeing your finds in future posts!

    1. Kathy,
      Once again, thanks so much for stopping by!! Please email me privately with your email addy so I can contact you personally and not just here...

  4. WOW, I wish we had those kind of great sales around here. Those are great prices and those look brand spankin' new! Thanks for sharing, but I'm so jealous! ~snicker~ I love Angels. In fact, I named one of my daughters Angelina and we called her Angel, but the Lord decided it wasn't her time yet & she passed away when she was four months old of SIDS, but she's my guardian angel now, so we are still together. I love your gnome garden too. I wish I could just walk through your house and garden and see it all. It's fantastic. Thank you for sharing! I run a "Monday's Music Moves Me" every Monday if you're interested and our theme is in my side bar. We have tons of fun and I let all my friends have a turn at Honorable Conductor if you like to try & pick themes. HAVE FUN & BE SAFE TODAY - HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY. NICE TO MEET YA... FOLLOWIN YA ON ALL YOUR SOCIAL NETWORKS & POSTED YOUR BUTTON TOO! hugs...

  5. We have several thrift stores in town that I love to visit. I usually find some treasure to bring home. One of the best was finding a food mill for $5. I wanted one but didn't want to pay the large regular price. - Margy

  6. So many beautiful finds!I'sure all the pieces will be perfect for Your home

  7. That little table is darling. You found some good buys. I need to hit up some rummage sales. It's been ages since I've been to one. Thanks for linking your posts to Keep In Touch.

  8. Wow, you found some great buys. Love all of those angels. You are such a great shopper and find the best deals.
