Thrifty Glassware

Once again it is Thrifty Treasures over at Southern Hospitality. I have been trying to concentrate on projects around the house, so in that respect thrifting will probably slow down a bit here, not to mention that school starts back today! I will be substituting once again whenever I am called, and that can be a bit unpredictable. However I have found a few things, and one thing in particular that I forgot to show from a while back.

I have almost given up on our Goodwill. We have so many shop owners that frequent these places it is difficult to find things. I found these snack plates and cups , .99 for the plates, and .59 for the cups. I already had several in this same pattern, now I just need to have a get together and use these great plates.

A pumpkin jar to use in the fall. Just a quick tip. Know your thrift stores, and their pricing. Our Goodwill seems to be consistently high. I saw this same jar at GW priced at 4.99! I waited and it was still there at 1/2 price. Call me cheap, but I still couldn't bring myself to pay 2.50 for a seasonal item. I picked it up last week at our Salvation Army Thrift store for a mere .99!

I will be adding these little dessert glasses to my collection. I bought a box of these at an estate sale last year, and have been adding to them . I have picked these up for as little as .29 each and I think I paid .59 each for these. Looking forward to seeing all your wonderful thrifty finds for the week. Now,head on over and check Rhoda's and see all the great finds. Have a wonderful and blessed week! Jackie

I love the dessert dishes! I could kick myself for buying some at WalMart for about 3.50 each! Yours are much nicer too!

I just love glassware! I'm a sucker for anything pretty that gets used in the kitchen, I guess. :)

Nice finds. And I've noticed the prices at GW and Savers inching upwards....and the SA store here closed...might have to go to Denver!

Fabulous glassware! I've given up on Goodwill too. So picked over these days. Shop owners huh? Now I know who to blame. :)

Our Goodwill is pretty pricey too. I go there once in a while but sometimes I can't bring myself to pay the high prices. What's really strange is their artwork is always cheap (everything else is overpriced) so I shop there for their art. I usually spent my time at Savers.
I really liked your pumpkin jar! That's my favorite!
