welcome to this month's installment of score thrifty!
garage sales have been in full swing...and while I haven't gone to as many as I would like
 [which is probably good for my wallet] :P I have had some fun finds lately...

glass punch bowl w/ 12 cups : $5

hamper basket : $3
Otto has one in his room that was starting to get in bad shape,
and so this will be awesome because it is in great condition and also taller than the other one.

you guys have already seen this apron in the pictures of Harper--
I picked it up at a garage sale for 50 cents and it fit her perfectly.
totally cute.

this shirt I'm not planning on wearing, but it was way too fun to pass up for a quarter!
it is pretty big and with the fun pockets/buttons I'll have to come up with some project to use it in..
a pillow maybe?

now THIS was probably the biggest score thrifty of them all...
Dressbarn collection satin dress for $2. TWO.
perfect condition...it was marked $5 and I asked if she would go less and she said $2.
nice garage sale lady, you rock.

another item for my Aztec/Indian shoot!

I didn't get a picture of it but I love looking through VHS movies at garage sales ,
because every so often I find one we actually don't own [shocker]
and I recently found Pollyanna...which I grew up watching as a kid!
I felt like I was reliving my childhood watching it with the little boys..love that movie!
[random sidenote: people that ask $1-2 for VHS movies at garage sales
seriously need some pricing help...I mean, c'mon!
They should always be a quarter...just my opinion. :P ]

what thrifty finds have you had?
