A Bargain for the Most El’Cheapo Like Me

This is the type of bargain I enjoy finding.
Not anything I needed but I tell myself for this price I can buy without guilt.

After all, someone else paid far more than I did.
It fits in with other knick knacks I’ve picked up

(and still need to find the proper place to display.)

This time it was the green glass cat which coordinates with the green glass frog.
(click on photo to enlarge and see better)
I had noticed that I did not own an abundance of green things.

Would not have surprised me if under the GW sticker I had found a Dollar Tree label.

Funny how once something is brought to your attention you notice more of it.
There is an upcoming post where I will share another green find.

I am linking this to Thrifty Thursday,
Garage Salen,
Trinkets & Treasures,
Its So Very Thrifty,

and maybe some others as the week goes on.



  1. What is that under that label? A candle holder?

    • That is the bottom of the green cat candle holder. The round white label is your standard “do not burn unattended.”

    • We can meet in the middle and try a flea market. Have not been to one for years. Tho I prefer church sales.

  5. Oh, you have touched on one of my big rants lately! The thrift stores selling dollar store items for more than a dollar! Um, hello? I generally get into a subtle arguement at least once or twice a month with a manager at one of these stores over this issue! LOL Fun find! It is so nice to find .10 cent items. they are rare! Have a great day!

    • After today I have told myself it is time to do more shopping among things I already own. But then I say I can still look for goodies for the fur kids.

  10. Good to see you 🙂
    I can’t have glass around the cottage, I tend to drop it !
    x x x love glass though.

    • That is why when I do buy glass I have to buy cheaply. I do need to learn to wear shoes more often too.

  13. Nice finds! And I totally can relate to the feeling of “I don’t need this – but how can I pass it up for 10 cents!” Thanks also for the comments on my blog! Nice to meet you!

  14. Roo says your site is very dangerous for his Mom. She will be inspired to go thrift sale shopping on Saturdays instead of playing with him. Roo pleads for you not to tell his Mom about your fun site.


    Comment by Roo — July 15, 2010 @ 4:51 AM

    • Roo- I promise to get back to posting fun things to do with doggies and kitties.
      There is an upcoming post about CHEESE!
