Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays No.44

Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays is BACK and I have a ton of goodies to share with all of y'all! I really don't shop a lot, but since Christmas I have done a boatload of shopping. I always love to catch the after Christmas sales that are going on in my favorite gift shops and my favorite retail store...TARGET!!! Did you hit the after Christmas sales too? Today I will be sharing some of the things that I purchased for myself...can't share all the wonderful items that I purchased for gifts...those gals read my blog. Looking forward to seeing what all of y'all have to share this let's get this party started!
                                                  Thanks for coming and hope you all
                                                     have a fun time at my PARTY!
                                 Fell in love with these cute trees...found them in the window at
                                                 one of my favorite gift shops in the quaint
                                                little town of Fairhope...they were 50% off!
                                            At another Fairhope shop, they had all their
                                            Christmas items marked down to 75% off!
                                   So these pretties were only $ the only two they had!
                 Always love to stop in at Pottery Barn for their sale...$2.99 for these beauties!
                                                  More PB treasures...only $ can't make
                                                            them yourself for this price!

                                     Still more PB items...I wanted to spell out "BLESSED" with
                                            these letters, but couldn't find all the I just
                                              got two "S" ornaments for my buffet lamps!

                 Here we are at the look of these trees...small tree $4.99...large tree $7.49!  
                                          I can see this on a wreath next year...$1.00!!              

Just had to get these cute little birdies...I can just see them being used at my place all year long...$2.00 each!

                                       Love this shade of green...I have BIG plans for this fella!
                                           I got another card holder again this year...because I had
                                                   so many picture cards this year and needed a lot
                                                          more space to display them.
                                         Soooooo cute and only $10...another great find at my
                                                            favorite shop in Fairhope!

Hi Linda,

Looks like you were lucky when shopping. I find it hard to buy for December of 2011. We don't have much storage space. I joined your group today and hope I did everything right. Thanks so much for this fun way to visit others. Take care.

You scored big time! Good for you. I don't think I would be able to hold off on using the birds. I would have to think of something to do with them now in preparation for spring. Thanks for hosting the party!

You sure did find some great bargains out there. I love shopping the after Christmas sales, but don't like having to put all my new treasures away for the season. Won't it be fun to rediscover everything next December?
Thanks Linda for sharing and for hosting.
