Thrifty Weekend Finds

Sadly, I did not get the lamp that would have been a smashing hit in our living room.
I was fifth in line on Saturday morning, but the group of three friends who were first in line were also there for the lamp and snagged it as soon as the door was open.
Seriously, I almost cried. Is that totally lame or what? I was deeply disappointed.

On a brighter note, I did get the white and brown dresser for $30! Perfect for my son’s room as it was overcrowded by a long dresser.

I did also score a bunch of amazing goodies, and so, I suppose the beautiful vintage arch lamp was not meant to be. Here are my great thrifty weekend finds!

It is in amazing condition and nothing has to be done to it!
Nice deep drawers too.

And now this last item was a totally fun surprise to open. I asked one of the estate sale guys to reach for this cute case at the top of a closet. I thought it was empty but when I opened it up . . .

. . . there was the most adorable vintage dolls clothes inside, complete with hangers, socks, a jacket and rompers. They are the sweetest handmade items I’ve seen.

This is also going to the shop if you know of any little girl, or her mother, who may enjoy this adorable set.

Be sure to check out my shop for some awesome finds and I’ll be updating it soon with some of these item for sale. 3 Thrifty Ladies

Wow - you did really well at the sale. I know what you mean about the disappointment of seeing someone ahead taking the object you want, but you will find a lamp you love eventually. - Lana www.lifeatwildberrycottage.com
