Mine vs. Theirs

I hit the mother load in thrift store treasures at St. Vincent de Paul on Wednesday!

I am going to start a blog segment called mine vs. theirs. I will show you how you can get very similar items at a fraction of the price.

So here goes…

I have been wanting a cloche. Mine was $2…

image

Theirs is $73 and I don’t even like the knob thingy on top, lol…

image

I love this little resin bunny. Mine was $1.50…

image

Theirs is $26!…

image

I really liked everything about this pink bunny…other than it was PINK (oh, and the ribbon)! Mine was $3…

image

Theirs is $17…

image

And look at mine now after some chalky finish mink spray paint. He’s almost a chocolate bunny, and no more hideous ribbon!

image

This fleur de lis was $2…

image

Theirs is $118…Whaaaat!!

image

I’m in love with this dome topped bird cage! It was only $4!!

image

Theirs is $95!!…

image

I wouldn’t want to pay these prices even if I had the money!

Here are some other great things I found on Wednesday!

I saw these little plaques a couple days before but didn’t want to pay $3 each. I waited, and they were on sale for $1 each!

image

These small mirrors were 65% off, making them 35 cents each!

image

The bird pot and basket shown below were each 75 cents! The white urn was $2.

image

These sconces were 1.50 each…

image

And look at the original price…$39!!

image

I saved the best for last. Look at this (rather ugly) flower arrangement I got for $1.50…

image

Look at the flowers after I tore them apart and added them to my milk glass…

image

And how could I resist Marilyn for 70 cents?!

image

Please let me know if you see something that you would love to have.

I am looking into renting booth space at an antique mall.

Thanks for stopping by! Check back soon for more thrift store treasures!
