Some Great Finds...

I am a bargain hunter and a sales shopper...I hate malls and I love thrift and antique stores...I like buying things that I know not a million other people currently have...and I just had to share some of my awesome thrift store buys with you... This little shelf, I got for $4...I planned to paint in once I got it home but turns out the colour goes great in my studio and perfectly fit some sweet little tins and boxes I already had...awesome:D

...than I found this sweet little white rabbit, that can hold pencils or flowers or whatever I suppose...right now I have my camera transfer cables in it and I just love it...I guess a sweet little ceramic bunny shouldn't make a person so content but well it does ha ha...

...we found this old set of blue glasses at a local thrift store and I just had to have them, especially when it was something like $6 for the whole set!...

and I don't think it's entirely my imagination that milk tastes extra good in the larger ones and brandy extra sweet in the smaller ones:D ha ha...
and okay check out this cool little wooden bowl...now I have this weird thing of bringing wooden stuff into the house that hasn't been made my dad or Jonathan but this little bowl spoke to me...
...maybe cause I thought of someones dad turning it and some one not wanting it so I saw it as a lonely unwanted poor wooden bowl for only $2 that could hide many treasures so I brought it home...it pays off to be a sentimental shopper sometimes;D!
and tins...oh my goodness I used to have this 'thing' for tins, I used to collect them and I do still have quite a few hidden throughout the house here and there but I do have favourites and well when I saw this beauty which matched another slightly larger one I had just in a different colour variation, I couldn't resist....
Isn't she a beauty and I think a steal at something like 0.99 cents!
There you have it...some of my favourite cheap finds so far this year:D What are some of yours? If you blog about them, leave your post link in this here comment section. Have a great weekend all...from Bijou and the Buns:D....XO.

It's a good thing you bought that bowl. You wouldn't want any bowl I made in the house on display ;-)
