Look at the great stuff I got for a bargain!

These are some Christmas, Fall and Halloween items I have been buying since July at thrift stores, garage sales and dollar stores. I have 7 pictures of items here and spent a total of a little over $16.00 for everything you see listed.


I got this Hallmark platter for $3.00 at a thrift store.


These cellophane candy lights were just $1.00 that I bought from a garage sale. They actually work and of course will look much better when they are lit up at night.


I bought all these at a thrift store for half price during, Christmas in July sale. The prices before were already a steal!

Set of 8 place mats.


The wooden Santa Claus is a match holder for a fireplace.


Various items I got at thrift stores, garage sales and craft stores. This includes all the fall leaves. The pumpkin tea pot was given to me the same place I bought the candy lights. The gentleman there said I could have it if I gave it a good home. That was nice of him! So at that garage sale I got candy lights and a pumpkin tea pot for a buck! (I hope you can see everything, after posting I think it looks a little too busy. There are at least 10 different items bunched up here).

Great bargains. Thanks for sharing the pictures. I just love the Goodwill Store. And I got the same Welcome Wreath at the $ tree. (It's my only Fall decoration).

Recently I found a nice large blue cloth tablecloth decorated with snowmen $1.99.
I have been picking up numerous Christmas decorations when I go. That section if the first place I check out when I go into the store.
