It’s Not Easy Thrifting Green

This week I have been trying to show off last weekends thrifty treasures by color.  Blue was simple, I have an abundance of blues.  Red was not bad, I have more reds to showcase.  I even have some Whites, which is quite unlike me,  living here on the farm of mud and dust.  I could show you browns by the dozen, and some interesting blacks.  Naturally there is purple.
However today I have chosen Green.

A tiny thin Japan made teacup. (.10)
That’s all, you say?
Nothing more?  Nothing fun, interesting, amazing?
It’s not very green,  just the trim.


Well, I did get these shoes for a steal ($1)
and I wear them when I am salen.
I’ll search harder.

Duckie (.10) and scrub things part of dollar store items (only showing green)

Oh, you see a hint of something else?

Who doesn’t think witch when they think green? (.25)
And the birdseed came with an entire cage setup, really nice cage. ($2)
Yes, another tree face, this one glows in the dark. (.50)
A fan for the dogs when we travel, got another one in blue. ($1)
And the yard globes both have green to them, one just does not show up as well.
I bought them a couple weeks ago and since I needed to find green items, here they are.
I did splurge and spend a bit more for them,  $5 for the pair.

When you go thrifting, does there seem to be a certain color missing?

  3. Thanks for visiting and sharing your thoughts on books – it’s true, nothing will ever replace the touch and feel of a book.

  4. If I love it, in the trunk it goes…if I decide later I don’t really want it…there are newwed grands…daughters..friends…all waiting anxiously. Some with their names already on stuff! 🙂
    My husband loves garage sales..but after the price hits a dollar…he gets the shakes…until he saw the John Deer bike! Then all bets were off!

    Thank you for stopping by! 🙂
