Thrifty Thursday #30

Not only is this the 30th Thrifty Thursday post but it’s my 400th post! 

Phew! I’m tired just thinking about all that blogging! 

Over the weekend I went thrift store shopping with the shopping club here on base. Yes, we have a shopping club! How awesome is that? Luckily I was able to find some pretty awesome finds! Although I think the other ladies probably thought I was nutty. While they were finding awesome clothing finds, I was buying old books and other odd finds!

I found these old wooden finials for $2 a pop. That’s under the cost of the finials at the craft store and they have much more character! I love finials and finial projects so I’m looking forward to changing things up!
Even though I have a stack of old sheet music I can’t resist a good deal on it! I picked up a few books for just a few bucks and I was thrilled to score a Christmas music book! Tucking that away for Christmas!
Check out this awesome cabinet that I found. I can just see it made over with an awesome paint job and a flat screen tv perched on top. Do you see that price tag there? $16.99! I can never resist a piece of furniture at a good price. With a little TLC I think it’s going to be a great piece!!!
Welp that’s it for this week! Have you found anything fun or fantastic this week???
Linking up to these great link parties!!!
