Nifty Thrifty Tuesday No.79

On Saturday Mr.CC and I headed out early to hit some garage sales...with a list in hand we were all ready for a busy morning. Our first stop was at an estate sale that was being held by two guys in their early 30's...I don't think that they knew a thing about holding a large estate sale and one thing about antiques...good thing for all the customers. I got two items there and one more item at another sale...just let me say...I called this day...QUARTER DAY!!! Did you go out and find any treasures? If so...what kind of day did you have...maybe you had a DOLLAR DAY...he he!!! Every week it's so much fun seeing all the goodies that y'all are finding and the thrifty DIY projects that are being completed...so inspiring guys...keep it up! If you are here to get inspired...thank you...because that's what this party is all about. Visit around...meet some new friends and use some of these ideas in your own nest. NIFTY THRIFTY TUESDAY is growing every week and that's awesome...the more people that come by and join in the better...don't we all like a big turnout when we are hosting a party in our homes? Visit around and come back and tell me what neat things that you saw here at NTT...I can't wait to hear from ya!
                                           Your friend,
                                               Linda

                                              What a darling little
                                               driftwood church.
                                                Gotta love that roof!!
                          Mister...how much is this? What about a
                                              QUARTER?
                                                  SOLD!
                                A pretty creamy white Lenox
                                oyster plate...what about this?
                                  That will be a QUARTER
                                                 too!
                                              Are you kidding me?
                                         Mr.CC found a couple of these
                                         on Ebay for $40-$50...yippee!
                                         I'm not sure if I will keep it or
                                         sell it...just might try to make
                                              some COLD CASH!!!
                                         I bet you all know how much
                                         this frame was...yes...it was
                                                   a QUARTER!!

You know, you only have to see one of your great quarter items and you'll have a bunch more quarters to have fun with again next week!

I did get out this Saturday and was having a DIME day. Almost unheard of, and to be honest, my best score, well, second best, was a FREE box.

Wow! Great buys for a quarter. Darling bird house. I'm not having much luck thrifting lately. GW has raised it's prices to 'ridiculous'and most of the yard sales here are over when school starts. :( Poor me. :)
