More Thrifty Finds

Went to a local resale shop and scored all of these old mason jars!

This one is particularly old with the off-centered “Perfect Mason” and original zinc lid.

Who knows, maybe this jar is worth loads of cash and I can retire my husband.   Yea, I know that’s unlikely but it’s ok for me to dream right?  I have an idea for a project with this jar in my head, so let’s just hope it comes out right.

Then I found this whole bag of old buttons for $5!  There are some really cool vintage ones in there too.

Need a button for anything?  Just come to my house. :)

I saw this little wooden drawer for $1 that came home with me also.

And then a few old beat up books with plenty of worn edges.  I may do something with these books too. :)

And that’s it!!

Have y’all found any good treasures lately?  Thrifting is so fun.  I really get an adrenaline rush!

Also, check out my first sponsor Wired Whimsy, for some beautiful jewelry!!  She has something for everyone.  :)

  1. Those are great finds…love the buttons! I just posted some of my recent thrift finds too but none are antiques. I have purchased a couple of old mason jars as well. Still kicking myself for not picking up one I saw at a garage sale a few weeks ago for $3. Don’t ask me what I was thinking :-(


  2. Great finds!! I think I know where you went. I recognize those tags and I saw the drawer there too! ;)

    Congrats on your first sponsor!!!!

    Big Hug,

  3. Congrats on your first sponsor! Love your finds and the buttons and books are a neat find!


  4. Dude, the jars are AWESOME!

  5. Ooh, I can’t wait to see what you do with those jars! I saw the EXACT same ones with the metal hanger things yesterday at the thrift store. I picked them up but then put them back becuase I didn’t have ANY idea of what to do with them — so I can’t wait to see yours! :)

  6. I know what you mean about a rush when you go thrifting! I love it, too! Oh, very cool jars. I love my mason jars. I just found a few in the basement I forgot I had. lol!


  7. I am completely green with envy over the buttons! Can’t wait to see what you do with all of your treasures.

  8. I can’t wait to see what you do with the mason jars. I use to collect them, but stopped when I had so many I didn’t know what to do with them. I will have to dig some out of my basement and get ready.

  9. I love the buttons. When I was little I would play with my great grandma’s jar of buttons, and to this day, I still collect buttons because it reminds me of her:)

  10. Oooh! Buttons! (cheap ones,too!) What a great find.

  11. I love mason jars! Love all the treasures you’ve found!
    Found you through New Friend Fridays.

  12. I found you recently via “New FF”, this is a fabulous project. Me too, if your looking for buttons, I have plenty. Stop by to see me soon.

  13. Great finds :)

  14. I love the Mason Jars. I have some of the same ones that belonged to my grandmother. I can’t wait to see how you use yours. I’m in the process of redoing my kitchen and hope to display them. Pam

  15. You found some awesome stuff! Can’t wait to see what you do with them : )

  16. Hi! I just found you from your link on The Girl Creative. Your blog is great, I love finding new people who enjoy thrift finds as much as I do.

  17. I love your finds. Yours look a lot like my treasures. I picked up some jars at an estate yard sale a month ago. They were the really big blue ones with the zinc lids for $1 a piece. AWESOME price. I also have a thing for buttons and old wooden drawers.

  18. FYI…the lids on the blue Mason Jars are TIN with ceramic inlay.
