Treasure Finds

Treasure finds & Gnome Alert
I love to find treasures. My treasures are bargains I find on Ebay, Craigslist, Amazon, or Garage Sales. The old cliche saying is true... One man's junk is another man's treasure. 
I found this Gargoyle on Craigslist for $15.00. Isn't he cute? He weighs about 30 pounds and is about a foot and a half tall. 

I found this castle for my fairy garden on Amazon. It's supposed to be a fish tank ornament but I wanted something unique and Gothic. It only costs about $13.00 when most fairy garden homes cost about $40.00. I can't wait until we move so I can set it up.  

Gnome Alert!
We went to one of those concrete statue places and this gnome was there to haunt me. 

Do you like to treasure hunt? Where do you find the best treasures? What was the best treasure you've ever found?


  1. Love your gargoyle! And at least you know your castle will be water proof! Haha!

    I don't do any treasure hunting. Used to go to auctions all the time (found some great deals on furniture), but I haven't done that in ages. Still, you could find some gems in those mystery boxes that sell for a buck! :)

    1. Stacy,
      I love mystery boxes. When I was little there was a gift shop that had them all the time. My family and cousins used to each buy one and we would do a Chinese Christmas thing with them. You know where you could steal each other's gift. I know we're kind of weird. :)
      I haven't done an auction yet. I bet there's all kinds of goodies there.
      Thanks for commenting on my blog,

  2. Wow, Bonnie - your Fairies at your new home are going to be psyched!! That castle is awesome, and I Love-Love the gargoyle too.
    We like to hit flea markets and yard sales. Never know what I'll find to tickle my fancy.
    No Gnomes for me. I've always found them a little creepy, and a certain story I read recently convinced me. :-) :-) :-)

    1. Thanks Paula.
      I love flea markets and yard sales too. It's fun to just go looking. Sometimes a person's stuff reveals a lot about that family.
      Yay on the gnomes. Me too.
