Since I'm such an avid "treasure seeker" and have seemingly inspired others around me to do the same, I'm starting "Thursday's Treasures". Every Thursday, I'll be posting a find from either a garage sale, flea market, thrift shop, or a found object.

If I've given the item a make-over, I'll post before and after shots. If it's clothing, I'll post the brand and estimated cost new, along with the envy-inducing price that I paid for it!

Anyone who wants to follow along, please follow these simple rules:

*Please link your Thursday's Treasures post to mine (sorry, I don't know how to use Mister Linky, so just insert it as link in your text)
*Items must be from a garage sale, flea market, thrift shop, or free
*Let us know how much you paid for the item, what you're intending to use it for (if it's anything other than clothing), and if it's clothing, tell us the brand so we can oooh and aaaah over the fabulous deal you got!
*Have fun searching for treasures!

I love this idea. Since you are my inspiration!!
This week I hit up Once upon a Child and bought Ian 4 pairs of pants. I paid $19 which isn't a steal but since he only had one pair of really good fitting pants I had to settle. Two of them were new pants so I feel oh so thrifty. He also scored on a new army truck for 80 cents. I'm sure he liked his find better than mine. :)I'll join in next week with a post of my own to add your button. Have a great weekend.
