Second Time Around - 11/3

I'm showing my 2nd hand treasures. If you would like to see other bloggers 2nd hand treasures click the link to go to A Picture is Worth 1,000 Words.

The best find in a long time was this tripod, on half price day. I only paid $3.00 for it. There was a case and a lens, too.

My step-sister collects cobalt blue bottles. I think these are very unique. The horseshoe one on the left was only 25 cents. The guitar shaped one on the right was only 97 cents.

I think this candle and candleholder is perfect for fall. Both for under $3.00. The beads are attached to the candleholder.

The tea cup and saucer for 90 cents.

What thrilled me was that I already had two of these napkins. Now I have enough for a setting for five. They are Pier 1. I think I paid only a dollar or two for all three.

A pumpkin Wilson cookie cutter I got half price for 15 cents.

These wooden candlesticks need some spray paint. The pair was only 49 cents.

Melissa from Melissa's Heart and Home is having a give away in commemoration of her 1 year anniversary. Go check it out and wish her happy anniversary.

You really brought home some treasures this time.

Wow! I never have that kind of luck. Maybe I am in too much of a hurry and don't search well.
