Friday Junkin and Shopping

Today while out doing a little Christmas shopping I stopped off at one of our thrift stores and picked up a little holiday decorating there too!

Here’s the loot!

This little shelf with towel bar was only $1.75.  Not sure where it’s going to go yet but was too cute to leave behind.

This ceramic/stone candle holder was only $1.25 and is going to look great with the glass top I already own.

The berry candle wreath fits over my new ceramic candle base above perfectly.  It was only $1.00 and is in brand new condition with the original tags still on it too.

These two greenery arches are going to look great.  I just love the rose, berries, and ivy mixed in with the greenery and golden arches.  They were only .75 cents each.
I’m hoping this book will also come in handy this season too.  It was also only .75 cents.
Now for my most incredible find at Tuesday Morning.  They were having a 50% off sale of all their clearance items.  I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this and was floored when it rang up even less then I expected.  It had already been marked down but was supposed to have been marked down again but got missed.  Then it was 50% off of that second markdown. 
I got this brand new vacuum for only $26.74 with tax included in that price.  Can you believe it?  I can’t because I’ve really been needing a new canister vac as mine is nearly on it’s last leg or wheels literally.  LOL!

This one is a Shark Euro Pro with Power head.  It’s not a brand I would normally buy but I had already been pricing full size canister vacs and they are usually well over $150.00 and up, even for the cheap ones.  This is a 12amp motor so I knew it was a good deal.  It’s NOT a small little canister vac, it’s full sized.  My old canister is a Hoover 12amp motor and has held up well over 15 years.  I really prefer a canister vacuum on my hardwood floors.

I was so excited, I could hardly wait to get it home and try it out.  It works like a champ!  It has great suction and glides beautifully over my hardwood floors with the hardwood floor attachment.  It works so well, I accidentally sucked up on of the big plastic bags laying here on the floor before I could stop it.  I had to get the hubby to get it out of the hose. Shew! LOL!
I’m sharing my deals with today for Junking Finds Friday!
Off for more Christmas shopping tomorrow at the Carolina Craftsman Classic.  I’ll try to be brave enough to take a few photos for ya, but we’ll see.  Hope your weekend it great too, mine is off to a wonderful start! 
Thanks for visiting!

  3. WOW Mary score on the vacuum..I love to vacuum, I know it's weird. Great Christmas loot too, can't wait to see how you decorate for the holidays! I need some serious inspiration this year!


  4. Good deal on the vacuum! Sharks are great! My friend had the battery run one that she kept in her classroom. It worked like a charm!!! That stone candle holder… if you ever hate it… send it my way! I'll give you $5 for it! You would make money! I just got the Restoration Hardware catalog and it is all the column looking pieces like that! What a find!
