  2. HI there....recently I got 7 large wooden crates built so solid, from an old orchard..holds 30 bushels of fruit! $25 bucks. This find may have topped my White treadle I got for $10. Cheers..Jess

  3. My latest find was a kitchen set of valances, curtains, and matching chairpads for a $1.00!! They looked brand new and were the perfect "odd" shade of green I needed. Of course my mother-in-law is the. Real "yard sale queen"--she bought a new 6-month old $40,000 car for about $10,000!! No joke! :)love the giveaway!

  5. My favorite was a collection of emamelware wash basins that I have hanging in my laundry room. I got 5 of them for $10 and they are in great condition.

    Thanks for the give-away!

  6. haha! for me it was buying those 2 pair of denim jeans for 99cents, It was nice to not feel guilty when I got home & cut them all up to make Denim Stockings out of them! I am so easy to please! lol!

  7. I get excited over every purchase or I wouldn't go. I search mostly for vintage sewing and embroidery things.But now it is close to garage sales and sometimes they are cheaper. Thanks for doing this giveaway. Carrie

  8. Ok.. well I have so many great finds, but my latest is some 100 year old wood that I am repurposing for my 4x4 square foot gardening boxes... I have a picture on my blog fellow prosserfarmchick is remodeling her quilters inn bed and breakfast.. and I was lucky enough to grab the wood... the planters are lovily I will post.


  9. Karen,
    Oh My goodness how can I pick. I thrift at least once a week, and I have so many great things. So I will just pick from my resent finds. An old spoon rack to hold all my very old spoons. I had been looking for one for some time. It was two dollars.

  10. My favorite (and best to date) thrifting find was a boxful of silver platters, a warming chafer, and a creamer cup for free! There was an antique store moving and giving a whole yard full of stuff away. It was a great find! Oh, I'd love to be entered in the giveaway too - my MJF screen name is Tammy Claxon. Thank you!

  11. Hi Kathy!
    My all time fav thrifting was getting a small antique pin cushion. I still have it and bought it at least 20 years ago. It's a wooden bucket that is engraved. It is so cute and special to me that I only have a couple of things I got that long ago and it is one of them.

    Please add me to the contest!
