Junkers anoymous-Thifty shopping

Do they have such a group? We are definitely addicted to finding thifty treasures, hitting the sales whenever possible and Goodwill at least once a week. We seem to buy and buy, then we are left pondering what to do with the stuff. Here are just a few of the treasures I purchased this past weekend.

Tin coffee pots, I think these would look really cute with plants in them, I went a little over board, but I have this need for collections of items. Besides the lady that was selling them literally had hundreds of them and it was hard just to leave with only 7.

This table was something I could not resist, loved the style, but am not real crazy about the color. Also, picked up the silver pitchers on top this weekend.

The last thing I will share with you, yes there is more, but I need to save them for another day. A vintage typewriter. I have wanted one for a long time. I really wanted the keys, but now that I have one it may be hard taking it apart.

Have some good finds that you would like to share. Rhonda at Southern Hospitality has a linky party every Monday. Hope to see you there!

That little chest is sweet--lots of possibilities! I think those coffee pots would look great with plants in them. If you ask me, if one is good, three or five or seven is even better!

What great finds! I love the tin things, and that chest has possibilities. I had one of those old typewriters in my basement for so long, and my daughter uses it in her home for cute decorative purposes.

I love seeing what everyone has found in their treasure hunting. I had to giggle some while reading your post as I could totally relate to most everything you said.
