Anyway the other evening, I stopped into a local Thrift Store (Potters House) and here is what I found:
I love cooking on pampered chef stoneware, but it is too expensive to buy new. So when I came across this little gem, a never used 8" mini baker by Pampered Chef for only $2.49, I couldn't pass it up.
|Internet price: $23.95|
Internet price for a NEW one is $23.95.
What a Deal! $21.49 Savings
Next, I found 3 Johnson Brothers Plates. Two match the set that I have (The Friendly Village) and a bread plate from a different set (Pennsylvania Fieldstone), but it matches close enough that no one will ever know it didn't really go with the set. I got a Dinner Plate $1.99, Salad Plate $1.79 and Bread Plate $1.29
|Thrift Store ones - sorry about pic color|
Dinner Plate $24.99
Salad Plate $8.00
Bread Plate $9.00
Savings of $36.92
Now the Best Deal of that Day...
|Thrift Store find|
Internet price: $24.99
Savings of: $24.40
Now you see why I enjoy shopping at these places.....I find treasures, I get to shop, and it fits within my really tight (and I mean-you can't squeeze anymore out of it) budget. Win! - Win! in my book.
Total Spent = $ 8.15
Total Savings = $82.78
Do you like thrift shopping, yard sales, or flea markets? What do you gravitate to, collect, or enjoy? Have you found a really great deal lately? Why not share....Would love to read about it.
