A Few Great Bargains!

Made my weekly ( I mean occasional) trip to Home Goods and scored a few great bargains! First I came across this pretty basket with a vase in it. I just saw something similar in Target for $30 mine was only $7.99!! I am using it in my kitchen for now, added a little greenery to it and it makes a pretty vignette on top of my island.





Next was this pretty figurine that reminds me of a Santos statue. I thought she was so pretty I couldn't pass her up and wait till I tell you what I paid for it. It was marked $32 and there was a red clearance tag on it, ya ready........... it was only $5.00!!




                Her new home is on my end table in my living room.


So what good bargains have you gotten recently, I would love to here about them! Have a great weekend, Martina

Love your new basket and the vignette on your island is stunning. It looks so pretty with the silver, white and the little green apple too. Your new lady does look like a Santos. What great bargains and beautiful displays. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

Lori said...

Now that is a great deal on that Santos, and I love how she is holding flowers.

CAS said...

The basket is so perfect on your island vignette. If it looks like a Santos, isn't it a Santos? Maybe a reproduction, but still. It's lovely. I can't wait to move to the land of Home Goods & other great shopping places!

My absolute favorite store is Home Sense. I rarely go in without finding a great bargain!

Heather said...

I live nearby a Home Goods, and it is a horrible temptation! I try to resist, but rarely do! Love the basket!

Carolyn@SweetChaos said...

Must.get.to.HomeGoods.pronto. I saw that same vase in a basket at Target but couldn't bring myself to pay for it! Hope they have some left at my local HG! Thanks for sharing :)

Gina said...

You found some great items. I love Home Goods. Good thing there isn't one too close by or else I'd be broke!

Those were some great bargains!!!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Great finds, Martina! I did go out myself today and got some great thrift finds and a few things from TJ Maxx. I'll be sharing mine later in the week, but I was pretty happy with what I got for the money!

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Wow, Martina you did good. Love the santos syle figure and only $5. Funny no one ever finds santos dolls at Home Goods and you and I both have.

Shelia said...

Hi Martina! Oh, you got some wonderful things! Pretty displays too!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Kathy said...

Darling stuff and such good prices I just love what you did with it!

Sharon (Roses and Rust) said...

I have seen your basket vase before and have been very tempted to buy it, but the price put me off. You got a real bargain there! It also looks lovely with a candle in it. Your figurine is just gorgeous - I love her skirt - so clever! And all so beautifully styled as usual. Have a lovely day. x Sharon

Liz said...

You always know how to display things so beautifully. I love your finds and you did a great job putting it altogether. I don't think Home Goods is here in WA...sniff, sniff!

Enjoy the day!
XOXO ~Liz

Lori said...

I just saw the same basket in a Tuesday Morning add for $19.

Have a wonderful day,

Great finds! Love your basket, your vignette on your kitchen island looks amazing...Hope your week is wonderful! :)

Gayle from Vintage Farmhouse said...

Great bargains, thanks for sharing. I never seem to find things at "rock bottom prices" but I did just purchase a couple of dining chairs with arms and upholstered seats for $40. I plan on revamping and reselling.

A Hint of Home said...

You did get some great bargains!
I love that new vase in the basket! The island looks great!

Pat said...

Hi Martina...love your HomeGoods finds! I have that same Santos at home, from HG...at a bargain price too.:-)

We are at the lake. I am working on our deck and planning a short trip to HomeGoods today. I am wondering if there is anything left! I was by there a couple of times over the weekend, didn't go in. It was packed!

Linda said...

Love the new basket vase . It looks great on your island. I can't believe you only paid $5 for that figurine. That was a great find.

Lisa's Creative Designs said...

Great finds! I LOVE a good bargain. I love Home Goods but the closest one is an hour and a half away! That may be a good thing though since I would probably be spending all my grocery money there!

Sherry said...

Martina,
You have a lovely kitchen! love your finds too. What a great deal on the Santos doll! thanks for your sweet comments!

Merri Cvetan, The Design Coach said...

You could do so much with your girl figure. Wouldn't it look fabulous filled with fresh flowers? Or tucked between towels in a powder room!

SavannahGranny said...

Great finds. I love the little lady. The vignette on your island is very beautiful. Love you kitchen.
Come by and look at the thrift finds in my living room.
Thanks for sharing, Ginger :)

I got those baskets from HG too! I like them even better than the Target ones. I got two sizes ... love the greenery in yours! I thought about putting utensils in them too!

Gigi said...

Absolutley LOVE the statue! You got a really good deal!

Makes me sad that we don't have a Home Goods.
