Ross and Big Lots Finds

Hey guys! I hope you all had a great weekend! Last week I went to Ross and a couple of Big Lots', so I wanted to share my finds with you.



 Here is Mr. Pig I found him at Ross. When Liz found him a few months ago I wanted one so bad and I just happened to come across him the other day, I was so excited!! He was 7.99. I got the vase next to him at Big Lots it was 5.00.


I found this plate and holder at Big Lots for 6.00! Love it!!


 I love finials I found three this week at big lots all for 4.00! SCORE!!


 Here is another finial.


I had my eye on this bowl for awhile now, it was marked down to 15.00. I plan to put it on my table add some greenery and faux fruit. I had an arrangement on the table before and it's hard to see everyone while you are eating, so I wanted to make something that is low in scale so I can leave it on the table all the time and not have to take it off.


I couldn't snatch this picture up fast enough! I love Tuscan decor so I naturally had to have this! It was 15.00 it is fairly large so I thought that was a good price. It also came from Big Lots.


I found these vases at Big Lots for 8.00 each I plan to make some arrangements with them and put them on candle sconces I have instead of putting candles.


I got the book boxes from Ross, the smaller one was 5.99 and larger was 7.99. I love book boxes!! It seems like they are hard to find around here, so when I see some I snatch them up!


Here is the last finial I got from Big Lots. I couldn't believe they were only 4 dollars! Just goes to show you that really nice looking decor doesn't have to be expensive. I love finding deals! This way I can just buy more!  LOL


Well, that's it for today guys! I will do a post later this week on where I put all my finds. 
Have a great week!!

UGH!! I knew I was forgetting to do something this weekend. I've been wanting to go to Big Lots too. It's not really close to my house so I forget about it. Maybe next weekend. Love all your stuff!

Beautiful finds Allyson! I'm thinking I need to hit the Ross and Big Lots to get me out of the funk I've been in lately and see if I can dig up some treasures like yours!

Many Blessings,
Melissa

Whoa, you got some great bargains! I've started to get into decorating (never have really before) but I'm trying to wait & see what our housing issue brings before I start sinking in money in decorating. Right now we are up in the air as to if we are going to stay in our current home or purchase another. Either way, once we make a decision I'm going decorating crazy! I think Big Lots will be my first stop :)

Grammy Goodwill said...

Those are great finds. That last finial with the red seems to coordinate with the vases as well. Enjoy decorating with them.

Liz said...

YAY, I got so excited when I saw a new post up! Guess what, I have everything you have shown there, isn't that funny, and I mean EVERYTHING! Good taste, my friend, good taste! *smile* Can't wait to see what you do with it! XO ~Liz

Helen's Decor said...

Hi Ally, I love everything you have shown. I surely wish my Ross had the same items you find at yours. I'm loving that bowl and the book boxes!

Thanks!
