Yard Sale/Thrift Store Finds

I haven't posted yard sale finds in awhile.
This weekend I hit several yard sales and our Goodwill - I don't like our local Goodwill very much as they generally price things a bit high but I happened to be in on the day all kids clothes were $1 and they had some household items priced really low. Here are some of the household items I picked up this weekend:

I got this gorgeous glass bowl for $2. A friend of mine has one just like it that I have admired since I first saw it. It's got a hallowed out part you can get to through the bottom of the bowl and you can fill it with decor to match the holiday. Right now I am loving it with no decorations, just holding lemons. (Which are .19 cents each at the grocery store right now!! We're making lots of LEMONADE these days!)


A brand new-in-the-box punch bowl with 6 glasses. It will double as a deep salad bowl or trifle bowl should I need either :) It was $5.


This three tiered dessert stand was $2. I need to find the perfect plates for it. I love how simple it is, it will blend in easily with any setting and can be decorated easily if I feel like making it look more festive.


And my favorite piece is this long candle holder. It was $8 which is more than I normally pay for second hand decorating pieces, but I have wanted something like this for AGES! It goes perfectly on our long dining room table.

I don't know if this one would work, but I think it's the most perfectly-perfect pie plate! I'm thinking I "need" two (in red)....

The three tiered dessert stand reminds me of what the tea house used to use for the sandwiches and desserts at "high tea". Very nice finds!!!

I love all your treasures. I bought lemons yesterday. They had been around 70cents each and now they were 6 for $2.00 They are just huge and very juicy. I hope you find some plates for the stand. I find a lot boxed in sets of four at Marshalls or at garage sales. Good luck.

Ooo! Lucky you, such good bargains! I found a similar tiered stand back this past spring at a community g-sale and have yet to find the right plates for it. LOL I think I'm going to just go get some plain white ones. ;)

Love love the glass bowl! It looks good w/your lemons in it. Ours were about 20 cents this last week. Everything you got was a prize!
