Swap Meet Dollar Deals

All items purchased at the Swap Meet today were One Dollar or Less! Instead of The Dollar Tree, it was The Dollar Forest! ;0)

Owl Lamp cost $1! What a Hoot of a deal! 

It was missing the bulb, but I had one 
on hand that fit. Even with this bright bulb, interestingly enough, only the eyes light up. I'm still happy with it though. :0)

Bamboo Tray cost $1. It's a bit dirty, but nothing a little soap and water can't fix. I really like trays to use for displays. 

Flower Ashtray cost $1. I bought this to be used outside by family and friends who smoke. 

Wicker Napkin Rings cost 4 for $0.50. I adore these! 

The Napkin Rings match our table setting perfectly. I'm going to switch the wood ones immediately.  Why do these excite me so much? I have no idea. 

Feather Pillow cost $0.50! It reminds me of peacock feathers. Love it!

Mini Candle cost $0.50. Smells just like Fresh Linens too! 

Halloween Tea Light Holders cost $1 each. These are too cute! I think the detail of them is fantastic. Sorry I didn't take them out of the box for their photo shoot, but good enough. 

Broom Stick cost $0.50. I plan on using this as part of a Halloween Witch Wreath for our front door next Halloween. 

Milk Glass cost $1.50 for both. Swoon! They are the perfect addition to my Milk Glass Collection. I plan on using the tall thin one as a candlestick holder. If I can only find another to make a set. We shall see...

Iron Acorn Candle Holder cost $1. This is one of my favorite buys of the day. It has already been cleaned of the crusted 
candle and is sitting pretty on our table. 

It matches the iron pumpkins I already have and purchased on previous swap meet hauls. 

Blue Ceramic Sun cost $1. It has already been hung in the backyard as gorgeous garden decor. 

Flower Pillow cost $1. It's so pretty! It shall go nicely on our front porch. Too bad the seller didn't have another. :0(

The Flower Pillow had an original price tag of $49.99! What a ridiculous price for a pillow. I like my $1 take home price much better. I assume it hadn't sold due to the $14 Orange sticker price. I'm glad I decided to ask the seller to make sure. Lucky me! 

Well, that's going to be it on my Dollar Deals at the Swap Meet. A bit of a random haul, but I adore all my finds. Till next time fellow frugal friends!

Swap Meet Basket Case Haul

Guess "who" was being a Basket Case at the Swap Meet today?

That would be me! That's how I roll.  Don't be hatin! ;0)

I decided to see what Kobey's Swap Meet was all about on a early Friday morning outing.  I haven't been to this Swap Meet in years and I have never been there on a Friday. 

Awesome view of the Sports Arena Stadium in San Diego, CA. The Swap Meet parking is in the same area of the Stadium. 

I must say, this Swap Meet was much quieter than I expected on this Friday with not a lot of sellers. Though, that didn't stop me from loading on up! ;0)

Oh my gosh! How adorable is this Owl on a Bike?! The wheels spin in the wind. In case you didn't already know. I'm Owl Obsessed and I love to Bike Ride! Owl Cost $3 in the new section. 

The Owl is already spinning pretty on our porch (Top right).  Don't mind my messy painting skills. These chairs still came out beautifully! And they are now sitting pretty with Mr. Owl spinning in the wind. Yep, Jack Of All Trades Baby! 

Basket cost $2. I love using baskets as 
pretty storage throughout our home. 

This particular one still had a Ross tag of $6.99. I like my $2 buying price much better. 

Long Stem of artificial Yellow Flowers cost $1. I like that they look real. 

Ceramic Bunny cost $1. I like that the bunny is in a diaper. It reminds me of our baby girl we lost and who would of been due to arrive next week on 11/25/14. :0(

Blue Ruffle Lampshade cost $1. I have the perfect blue lamp for it. 

Vintage Glass Straw Holder cost $1. I adore this. I already have a green glass one, but couldn't pass up this coca-cola one at that price. 

Basket cost $3. This basket is way bigger than it appears in this photo. I'm going to use it for toilet paper I buy in bulk. Just take the toilet paper out of the ugly packaging and throw them right in. 

Turquoise Dangly Earrings cost $1. I bought a pair for me and a pair for my mother in law. :0)

3 Colored Basket cost $2. I already glued the trim that was coming undone a bit. Good as new! The colors match our home perfectly. 

That's going to be it on my buys from Kobey's  Swap Meet in San Diego, CA. 

Shopping secondhand saves us lots of money in the long run. It is also so fun to do! I wouldn't have it any other way! Till next time!
