Newfound "Treasures"

The best part of yard sale shopping is never knowing what one is going to find.

It's like going on a real treasure hunt.

At one sale attended this past summer, the woman holding the sale must have been a retiring Mary Kay salesperson.

There were tons of lotions, perfumes and so forth on the tables at slashed prices.

The items were all brand new and unopened.

I bought some "Belle"  body lotion and perfumed spray and love using them after taking a bath.

Also picked up a black bracelet at a sale but the rubber to which doodads are attached is pretty stretched-out which is probably why it was sold at a yard sale.

Some lovely old-fashioned screw type earrings were a good purchase, especially since sapphire is my birthstone.

Because I just love the look and feel of a lace cloth on the kitchen table, a $1 lace tablecloth was definitely the best deal of the day. 

It's in perfect shape, too, and guess what?

I am grateful!

This is the month to focus on gratitude, for even the littlest things.

Then, we can carry over that gratitude for the rest of 2016 and into the new year.

I am so grateful for the wonderful things I find at bargain prices when I shop. Saving money is important to me. Sometimes I have a list of items I'm searching for but I'm always open to whatever catches my eye! Hugs.

Ooooo, those sapphire earrings are so pretty, Susan. I love that color in fashion. And what a great deal on the table cloth. My sister first introduced me to yard sales many years ago, and ever since then, I was hooked. Love finding goodies there, especially one-of-a-kind items. :)

Have a beautiful week, Susan.

Susan you always find the est things - I do love the lace myself. Do you go to Antique stores or just thrift stores? I don't ever have a plan. teehee

Oh Susan, yes your table cloth is the winner! When I was looking for a replacement for my round table, I was shocked at the prices! Your new one is lovely.
Thank you for asking about me. I am still having a hard time with diet and meds. Now I have to see a kidney specialist in Dec and I am very concerned. Thank you for your prayers...I so appreciate them.
Happy November.
