Target Clearance and some thrift store chairs!

It's been a crazy few weeks, but I managed to get over to Target. They had some great decorative items on clearance last week. Here are some of my finds...

A topiary for $2.98

A birdie candleholder for $2.48


A vase that can be used alone or with the base. It can also be turned upside down and used as a cloche- $7.48.


I am in the process of helping my husband decorate his new office at work and I was looking for some chairs we could use in there. Well, I hit the jackpot at GoodWill and found two of these vintage modern beauties.

They were a mere $6.99 each!! I'll be posting their transformations soon along with pics from the hubby's office.

I'm linking to Frugal Friday...

Okay, I'm so loving your finds! But I especially love the vase. I think I would definitely use it as a cloche! You're not going to find one for that price!!

Love the chairs too! Great find!

Love that topiary for $2.98!!! I agree that the vase would be great to use as a cloche. Love to see what you do with it. Have a great weekend...

The bird is very sweet and I like the chair a lot. I have been on the lookout for some good ones that I could work with.

Ooo I love all your finds -- although I have been on a Target hold placed by my husband. I just seem to go crazy there! I can't believe that topiary was only 3 dollars! Thanks for stopping by my site and I think the silhouettes in 8x10's would be awesome. Maybe using even one of those big, fat permanent markers?! I would love to see how they turn out! You have a beautiful family...

I can't believe the sales you find in the U.S. - we would never find something that inexpensive, even here in big-city Toronto, Canada!
The price you paid for the bird candleholder might be found at Goodwill, but certainly none of our other thrift stores (Value Village, for example, is much more expensive).
Good for you - and good eye!
