Nifty Thrifty Tuesday No.101

What a wonderful celebration we had at last weeks party...largest turn out so far...375 people came by to party with me and I was really touched. Thank you everybody and I hope you all continue to make it by often to share your THRIFTY posts. If you didn't read my last post, then you don't know about my two day pickin' trip to Seaside, Florida. It was a big success, found lots of items for my business and a few for ME! Today, I will share my personal treasures with y'all. Had a fun time checking out the links from NTT #100 and here today, I have three of them to share with you.
                                     Glad to see ya here,
                                               Linda

                          Love the size of this old crate.

                                  Great handles that will come
                                  in handy! Get this...$6 and it
                                             was mine!
                               Charming old tote...don't ya think?
                                     Another great handle!
                  Price tag was $10...another awesome deal!

Now this one was the deal of the day...got
this $199 Pottery Barn floor lamp for
$5...no joke y'all.
I'm not sure where I will use it, but
I just could not pass up a deal like that.

Now it's time for this weeks features!

What great finds. Though I like the tote, the lamp is definitely my favorite. I want to find something like that for when I'm doing crafts, especially jewelry making, to sit by my recliner. : )
