Antique store, thrift store and yard sale finds

I had high hopes for bargain shopping at a couple of yard sales this past weekend, but my plans didn't turn out as I'd hoped. It doesn't matter - I spent a lot less money than I'd planned to spend, and I still found at least one thing on my list.

The antique store had this set of nautically themed glasses that I got for $5, and a little framed print illustrating the article "The" for $2:

At the thrift store I found a bag full of fabric for $5. (That was the only item on my list that I found.)

And at the yard sale I got a little porcelain hinged box of a cat napping in a chair (for a quarter!) which I gave to Marley:

I still would like to find a suit valet for Steve (he's an inveterate clothes-draper) and a metal coffee table or end table for the yard, but that will be another hunt on another day.

Look at Apron Thrift Girl to see what she found this weekend - lovely treasures!

I like your fabric find - so much cheaper than the fabric store.
And a lava lamp for $1 is a deal too
