Today’s Thrifty Treasures ~ Rose Bowl +

Rhoda at Southern Hospitality is hosting Today’s Thrifty Treasures again this week. Things are winding down for this weekly meme. It’s always fun to see the great bargains that blog thrifty shoppers find! Check it out by clicking over to Southern Hospitality.

Dear and I went to the Rose Bowl Flea Market a couple Sundays ago and I came away with 2 small purchases. I bought a glass bell dome/cloche for $10.00 and a wired something or another for $5.00. When I got the cloche home I was trying to figure out what to display under it and Dear put it over my Gin and Tonic. Hmmm. He thought he was pretty funny. As you can see I came up with something different to put under it. It will be changing again soon with something for Fall. This Saturday we stopped at a garage sale and I picked up this heavy cast iron candlesticks for $4.00.

Thanks Rhoda and happy hunting everyone!

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.

Outdoor Wednesday

It would be fun to be enjoying the outdoors from this cozy looking Bed & Breakfast in Cambria, California.

 

But alas that will have to wait till sometime in the future if the Lord wills. In the meantime we spent a few hours here, the famous Rose Bowl Flea Market!

 

The morning started overcast and on the cooler side which was nice for us. Then at about 1:00 P.M. the sun broke through the gloom and it was fierce. We were all done with what we wanted to see so we headed for our air conditioned drive home! I was a good girl and only spent $15.00 for two items. Being an avid thrifter I find the prices for smaller items to be too high at  flea markets. The furniture and larger items seem to be a better bargain then the little stuff.
