Monday. Tuesday. Wednesday. THRIFTday!

Does this look like it came straight from a saloon, or what? Today's THRIFTday post shows how easy it is to find a piece in one store, then walk into another store and fnd its mate!

I found this beauty for only $4.49 and boy is she heavy! It was 1/2 off day at this particular thrift store so my heart skipped a beat when I held her in my hands realizing she was all mine.

Check out this set of glassware I purchased at another thrift store just moments later. The store originally marked it at $9.95 for the box of six, however one broke and the set was discounted to $3.95. Cha-ching for me! I thought easy enough. I could always mix it up with other mismatched glasses if necessary.

The insignia is military with black and gold detailing. Very nice.

The glasses include a little drinking song on the back. See if your guests are interested in livening up the party by singing away!

For about $10, you too can create a thrift store compilation that your friends will oooo and ahhh over. There is definitely no use for cookie cutter decor in my home! :)

Time to share your THRIFTday finds everyone! Just post on your blog, leave a comment below...and don't forget to link back to Junk Sophisticate!

As always, take care and keep on junking!
