Thrifty Deals

I got some new thrifty deals:

This basket was $2.99 at Goodwill. It is super sturdy and will be perfect to carry things out to the new patio (when it is done).

This frame I got on clearance at Hobby Lobby for $2.90. It was regularly $29.90. It opens , but the glass is missing. It is a bulletin board of sorts, for photos. You use pearl headed pins to post the photos. I am going to paint it black and use it in my newly redone bedroom (it is half done - reveal to come in the next few weeks).

I had never heard of Hobby Lobby until entering Blog-land. All the blog-ladies kept showing all the cool, cheap things they got there, so I looked them up on the Web. There is not one in the Twin Cities, why, I have no idea. But, there is one in rural MN, so my girlfriend and I went on a road trip. I bought some very cool things there, some on clearance, some not. Some for my new bedroom, some not. You will see them in posts to come.

This last item I got at Goodwill for $3. I haven't decided what color to paint it, black or white. I haven't decided where to hang it, kitchen or bedroom. I think I'll wait until my bedroom is complete before deciding.
