Treasures for Dollars: Item 9

Treasures For Dollars is a mini-series that is completely focused on things that I actually find (and buy) from dollar stores and other similar stores. It will alternate with Blythe On A Budget articles for the next little while until the finale of the mini-series (at Part 10). I hope you enjoy the series!

A couple of weeks ago, I went shopping (like always…). I stumbled upon a thrift store that benefits a local hospice, so I went in to see what was for sale. They had a lot of Christmas ornaments ($0.10 per glass ornament, they were gorgeous but none of them really called to me). There were clothing and toys (no Kenner Blythes, or else I’d be talking about that instead) and there was this little craft section at the end of an aisle in a bin. And most things were yarn remnants (partially used balls, balls missing labels, etc.) and then there was this messy pile of crochet thread and a sign that said that all crochet thread was $0.10 each. Now I don’t know about you, but it costs a lot more than $0.10 to buy crochet thread new in store. So I bought three (these were the only ones still in the original packaging, the others were missing the label so there was no information about the content or sizes of hooks or needles to use).

So not quite a treasure for a dollar, but for thirty cents I think I did pretty good!

What’s a good inexpensive dolly-find you discovered recently?
