The lucky number of the day is.....

.99 cents!!!!!!!!!!! And that's because of these 2 AMAZING finds I scooped up for .99 cents a piece at my local Salvation Army:

I am in LOVE with vintage scales right now. And with my whole "grey" theme going in the living room, this is going to make an awesome addition to my decor. Secretly tho...I purchased it to use as a prop in some pictures I'm taking this week. More on that later... :)

Would you check out the amazing detail on this chunky shelf?!?!?! I just LOVE it! I would have loved it for $3, I loved it even more for $1.

What a great day at the thrift store! What are your latest & greatest bargains? :)


  1. You are right. They are both great finds. You've roused my curiosity about the shelf.

  2. Darn. I paid almost $20 for a similar scale from Amazon to use at Farmers Market when weighing tomatoes for customers... side note: what did you do about the radioactive apples? lol

  3. Looks like you have a great Salvation Army. Only $1 for that shelf? That's awesome. Our's is pretty picked over, or maybe I need to get over there more often!

  4. Visiting from Garage Salen, and I love the vintage scales, too. Just had one of mine in my last post :) Great buy!

  7. Hi, I am new to your blog - it's great! What wonderful finds you made. I have one of those scales sitting on a workbench in the garage waiting for inspiration to strike...I will be looking forward to what you do with yours.(-:
    Stop by and see me sometime.

  8. Girl-you got a steal on that scale-these are one of the hottest items-anything you display on there looks great!
