Thrifty finds

I love thrifty finds at retail stores. Recently I purchased these Spring place mats at Kohl's. They were 90% off. I was able to purchase six place mats for 79c each.

There was also one floral mat for 99c.

They are perfect for my back porch table.

And a Goodwill score were these Fiestaware cups and saucers.

I already had four c/s that I had purchased in Georgia last year. But at this price, I could not pass them up.

So I put them all together for a fun Spring time table.

The cup tower was found at a thrift store a couple of years ago. Sugar and Creamer were acquired while on a trip to Missouri. Pink Goblets from North Carolina and the pink plates were from an antique shop in North Florida.

It's amazing sometimes what you can find when you are "just browsing".

Wow! Terrific finds! I love the Fiesta cups and saucers at such incredible prices! I will be getting my oil changed this weekend, conveniently, right next store to a Kohl's! Guess what department you will find me LOL?

Hi there, Girl what a find you made. I love the placemats but am crazy about your pink glasses and plates-I think I would have purchased each item you shared with us. Love your table setting.
Thanks for sharing and if you ever want to get rid of any of your things, just email me-just kidding.
Hugs, Noreen

Great finds! I need to pull back on the reins. Too much thrifting for me. Love your table setting.
How's google been for you lately. For a couple of days I was unable to find my posts. I had to switch browsers.

Can you believe that in all my thrifting I have yet to find any decent priced Fiestaware! Your pink cups are wonderful and such a great price. And those placemats would have come home with me too! Thank you for joining TTF and have a great day!

You did great at GW and Kohl's. That is one store I don't go in hardly ever. It's at the next town over.
We do have a GW that I've been having fun in.
You did great! Thanks for sharing such a beautiful table!

The cup tower is my favorite. What a fabulous way to show off great cups and keep them organized at the same time.
