Thrift Store and Flea Market Finds ~ Oh My!

Over the weekend, a thrift store was having a customer appreciation sale - 50% off store wide.  I got all of this (two bed sheets, 3 vintage tablecloths) for about $8.00 total.  The bedding will be saved for camping, and possibly a few of the tablecloths. 



At a flea market, I found this cute beaded vintage purse (great for girls who attend prom and homecomings), with a matching beaded wallet for $1.00. 


I also found this vintage lipstick holder for $3.00.  Check out the poodles on it.  And yes, it's already in my bathroom being used. 

The rain is still falling here today, so I can tackle inside work.  The bathroom (shower floor) tile was all in place by 5:30pm, but needed to sit overnight to allow the grout to secure them.  Tonight, the guys will fill in between the tiles and allow it to dry again.

Great finds and a good sale at the thrift.
I've passed our thrift up recently and saw they were having a PENNY SALE! (they recently had a 50% off sale) Both times... I wasn't able to stop. :( I hope to catch the next one.
I like the little lipstick tray w/poodles...is that silver plate?
Glad your shower is almost finished. Maybe you'll get to enjoy it soon.

Wow good deals. Can't find anything like that here at thrift shops. They are all the thing now so prices are higher now.

LOVE thrift stores! Those are some great finds. We used to live about 45 minutes from one that everything was .25 and we went once a month! I miss that store.
