Have you bought anything exciting lately at a bargain store?

I don't know about you but I love auctions and second hand shops! Over the years we have got some quaint and quirky items and at such a bargain price as well. Here are some of our favorites. 1. At an auction wd bought an old worn kitchen cabinet. My husband sanded and painted it and we resold it at another auction. 2. One of my favorites was a little brown jug that comes out for tea . The tubbiest and cutest jug you will ever see. 3. We also found a wonderful oak round table and chairs with a lovely dresser to match. 4. Bought a lovely old yellow wood table and some copper containers from the old days with Delft handles in blue and white. 5. Also have found some very old books, some quite valuable. The etchings are so beautiful. Some people buy old books for their pictures and have them framed. 6. Most of our furniture is Oregon pine, which we picked up at second hand shops. These are but a few. If you have the time and inclination this can be so rewarding!

There are some finds out there for sure. Once by chance I bought a book at the Goodwill store for 39 cents. I listed it on ebay and it ended up selling for $39!! I sure wish I could have luck like that all the time. One time I was looking for craft supplies for something else at the Goodwill store. I happened across a fabric panel, another piece of fabric and a piece of batting. Each item was marked 49 cents. I used them in one project that I then sold for $15.
