Nifty Thrifty Tuesday

Linda at Coastal Charm is hosting her

I found a few bargains this week to share.

This black, CHAPS sweater with
3/4 length sleeves, white buttons & trim I found at Kohls.

I plan on wearing it with white capris to church next week.
I just about froze this weekend, the AC was so cold.

Check out this bargain price!!

Down from the original price of $65
to $19.50 & then
final sale... 80% off

~~~ $13.00 ~~~


On top of that, I got to pull a scratch-off card &
that gave me another 15% off!!

Next, I found these brand new Bormioli
(made in Italy)
tumblers at GW.

There is a T. J. Maxx tag on them for
$6.99 but I got all 6 for only
~~~ $2.50 ~~~

I'll be using them on a July 4th table
later, so stay tuned.

I also found some of those great cheese domes
that everyone has been changing into pedestal cloches.

I think I will sand & paint the one on the left
& leave the other as it is, since it is in nicer condition.

Be sure to go see Debbie's version at
Confessions of a Plate Addict

Her's turned out AWESOME!!!!

Check out that bargain price, too~~Woo-Hoo~~!

Total spent: less than $20

Thanks for stopping by the Gazebo House

& thank you, Linda, for giving us a place to

share our Nifty Thrifty finds.

Everybody 's a bargain!




  1. Lucky you on the sweater Rett! I bought it (and a red one with black trim) at a much higher price (big sale and it was $35)! A great classic look at a terrific price.

  2. Very nice deals! I love those glasses the most. Excellent deal on those! I saw a hint of a cute table to come. I have a 4th of July table scape I'm revealing this Thursday too! I can't wait to see yours though, I know it will be fantastic!

  9. Rett, Great bargain on the sweater, toots! And the glasses were a major thrifty find, too. I loved Debbie's re-do of her cheese dome. Your transformation will be equally as nice, I'm sure. Seems that cheese domes were big finds all week long. LOL
