The Little Red Owl

DIY ideas for home, health, & life

See what I did there, dollar signs for the S’s…Lame I know, but I couldn’t help myself.

I am starting a new WEEKLY section called, you guessed it, Seven Dollar Saturdays.

I am going to share my thrift store finds totaling (about) $7.00 weekly. (This was Husband’s idea and I thought it was a great one!)

I will share what you can find and buy (a lot!) for about $7.00!

Here is the first edition:


My first find was these adorable wooden toy/pencil holders.

Wooden Toy Pencil Holder

Wooden Toy Pencil Holders

So cute! (these are almost definitely going into the shop *link*) They were only $1.00 each and totally worth it!

My second great find was This green glass pitcher:

Green Glass Pitcher

Large Green Glass Pitcher

This pitcher was $3.50 (half off-and still kind of expensive if you ask me).

Next on the list is this gold candle holder:

Gold candlestick holder

Gold Candle Holder

This candlestick holder reminds me of the days before electricity and walking up the stairs in the dark with long hair down and the candle burning. The candlestick was only a $1.00.

Next up, a fancy black clutch purse:


Black Fancy Clutch

This clutch is perfect for a wedding, New Year’s Eve, and more! It was $2.00!

So, the break down again:

1. 2 wooden toy/pencil holders  $1.00 each = $2.00

2. Green pitcher = $2.50

3. Gold Candlestick Holder = $1.00

4. Black Fancy Clutch Purse = $2.00

total = $7.50

Do you thrift? What are some of your favorite finds?

    I’m thinking, YOU Did good, Girl! I liked everything you found and the purse is very popular right now, I’ve seen them in magazines and ads.
    You made some good choices and all for a minimal $7. Great.

  2. I love treasure hunting! In addition to the vintage valentino, missoni, tory burch, I got a pair of Jourdan shoes never worn for $10 and Lanvin shoes also never worn for about the same. I’m pretty lucky that way! As much as I love ChaCha, I love a good thrifty find.
