Weekend Finds

After perusing the blogs I follow, I saw that loads of people scored big this weekend while out thrifting.  I thought I did too, until I saw someone’s $5.00 table, someone’s $6 lamp…

Regardless, I managed to find two things that I paid a little more than that for – but were deals nonetheless.

For instance:  My new vintage Lane coffee table, with dovetail accents.  If you’re curious, look it up on ebay.  Anywhere from $250 to $500 depending on the seller.  I got it for $75.

I think it looks really nice with the rest of my furniture…(excuse the spilled dog treats…that’s Trixie’s favorite trick – upset the bowl).

Then I found an Ikea dining set on craigslist – last year it was $259 new, this year “reduced price” of $179 new.  I got it for $99.  I’m using it on the patio…

So even though I didn’t score anything for $5, I still feel like I got good deals.

What do you think?

I am loving the couch too, but wow what a table! That was a deal. I love your patio. Good score on the Ikea set. I love the little white chair to the left...and the lantern above the table...and the lawn that's actually green. Are you going to the MCM home tour in Sac?

That coffee table is lucious. I ran to the thrift store on lunch and didn't find much. A few old plates and a childs match game from the 60's. :)
