What 10 cents gets ya these days...

One BIG ( 24" by 36"), heavy, altogether impressive vintage mirror!

Yep, there's your proof right there!

Found at a local thrift store today.
Heck, I even managed to impress myself with this find, and I'm a tough crowd to please!

I came home with an SUV loaded full of treasures, some headed to the booth, some headed to Etsy, some headed to Warrenton, and some destined for my next mixed-media art creation. I'll take some pics of it all once I get a little free time (hmmmm, what's that?).

Sooooooo.....what did YOU find on the junkin' trail this fine Saturday???

I am majorly impressed! Lovely mirror!

I overslept and missed the yard sales. So, I checked something off my list that has been there for quite a while.

My friend, Lisa, needed a tree cut down in her front yard. I grabbed my chainsaw and headed over. Her busy neighborhood came to a standstill when the engine revved. All neighbor's within earshot came out to watch and a real estate agent hosting an open house across the street was glad to see the tail lights of my trucks as I drove away with all the wood!

They acted like they had never seen a girl with a chainsaw before!

I would have rather been shopping with you!

What a score! That's one of the best deals I've heard of in a while! It's cool, too.

I'm hoping to do a little junkin on Monday.

Wow! OMG!!! That's amazing. They should have paid you 10 cents to haul it away. Why on earth would it be sold for so little. I would have easily paid $10. That has to be the best thrifted bargain I think I've witnessed . . . ever!


Jane said...

Can't believe that mirror was only 10 cents!! That qualifies as the buy of the day! No shopping for me today. I spent the day sewing and putting the finishing touches on my guest room redo. It will hopefully be done soon!

David said...

STOP, THIEF! :-) Nice find!

KarenSue said...

That's funny! I like it.
My friend gave me her grandmothers old kitchen scale today. It's already on my blog.
I'm off to Renningers Extravaganza in Mt. Dora Florida tomorrow.

Theresa said...

Junk Exchange said...

hot dang!!

that is a true find! 10 cents! you mega scored! i think that is better than anything i have ever purchased - i have found stuff for free and i have been given stuff - but i seriously don't think i have ever bought anything that big for 10 cents - 10 cents for a piece of pottery sure - but a big ole lookin glass like that - i tip my hat to you - you have earned your junkin letter - a big J to ya!

Tracy Suzanne said...

You Go Girl!!!!! My first thought was why did they even charge you the 10 cents. I just can't grasp their point of selling it for 10 cents.

Wooooooo-hoooooooo!!!! What a great Saturday. I can't wait to see it all.

Thanks for coming by to visit. You have really been on my mind alot. I don't know why other then I just kept meaning to come by everyday.

Hugs Sweetie....Tracy :)

Claudia said...

Miss Mustard Seed said...

10 cents?!? Why did they even bother? So funny, but good for you! That is a great find and I love the age spots at the bottom.

Bettie from Southern Thresholds said...

What a GREAT find! I've often wondered if thrift shop owners read blogs. If so, prices will slowly begin to soar. I love it when I luck up on a good item - better yet, a good priced item. Lucky you. Love the blog. I look forward to checking it every day.

Linda Q said...

One of the best deals of all time I think! Bravo, will be fun to use. I love mirrors.

sissie said...

Wow ten cents....getouttahere! It's a nice one too, can't wait to see what you do with it.
I did go to my very first auction today and got some great stuff for just $10. I think I am now hooked. It wasn't hard to bid at all, although the auctioneer got a little carried away at times.

I'll be back soon.
