Thrifty Treasures Illuminated in the Dollar Spot

I {heart} Target, but the Dollar Spot near the entrance in every Target store holds a special place in my heart.


I don't know of any other Spot in the world that you can find such fabulousness: coloring books, tiny vases, headbands, place mats, ribbon, itty bitty cookbooks, junk to amuse your kids in the car, and so on.


My most recent acquisitions had me squealing in delight.
I snatched those tiny tea light lanterns up before any one else could lay claim on my property. Mine! I'll totally crunch your toes with my stilettos if you come between me and my Dollar Spot. Or at least give you a dirty look. Or say a bad word in my head. Or something.


Anyways, I think these will be so cute on the deck this summer. I see warm weather, hanging paper lanterns, a burlap runner, my natural woven platters, and these guys lighting up the food table.


I've been waiting for Rhoda to bring back her Thrifty Treasures party so I could share these with you. If you enjoy reading about amazing bargains, go check her blog party out.

I just love Target's Fab dollar bins. They are great for stocking stuffers and great for a little extra in a gift. Love the laterns. I don't have a Target near by but I will soon be going to school only a mile down the road from a Target. I can't wait!!

Love these! I just might have to take a trip to our local target today and see what I can find. Most of the time I stop at the dollar spot but the last two times I have been in the store I was in such a hurry I didn't stop and look, no telling what I missed out on ;)

Thanks Amanda!

Wow, in the dollar section, no way! I am avoiding Target because when I go in just to buy toilet paper and toothpaste I end up spending $100.00 on who knows what. I might have to check it out though!

Carrie said...

What a find! I'll have to be paying more attention to the dollar spot now!

Jessi said...

So cute! My Dollar Spot hasn't had those! If it weren't for this dang cold I have right now I'd hop on over there to see if they are there now.

Erin @ Puddin' Sugar said...

The Dollar Spot is the Best!! I am now going to obsessively stalk (even more than usual) the Dollar Bin until *hopefully* those appear in my Target ;)

Alicia said...

Those are really cute. I love the Dollar Spot. You really wear Stilettos to Target? Wow, you're my hero!

Kim @ NewlyWoodwards said...

These are adorable. I love the Dollar Spot, too. But, I also have a tendency to bring home very adorable things that never get used. I'm trying to cut back on impulse purchases for that reason. =)

But, now, I think I could use those lanterns.

I loooove the Dollar Spot! I found some tall decorative bottles there last week - I am going to wrap them in burlap or pretty fabric and stencil something on them. So fun!

Love those lanterns -- I haven't seen them. I will have to go to Target this week. Awesome!

XOXO
Jen

Melissa said...

Great find! I've found some fun scrapbooking supplies at the Dollar Spot, too!

slommler said...

Sarah @ Thrifty Decor Chick said...

OOOH great now I must go there today!! Were these a dollar or 2.50 each?

Jennifer said...

I love Target and the Dollar Spot...and love that there is one within 5 minutes of my house!

I have NOT seen these great little lanterns yet at my store...MUST go check it out tomorrow!

Thanks for sharing...

Carmen said...

I'm pretty sure I didn't see these when I was at Target on Friday. They are so cute!!! I sure would have snapped some up myself. I'll have to check again.

Paula said...

Very cute! It's supposed to be really warm by the end of the week. Maybe you can use yours for a cookout this weekend.

Do you know that I hardly ever go to Target? It's so far from my house and the traffic there is terrible. I'm really missing out on some good stuff!

southerninspiration said...

Too bad you don't get commission for all of us that will be running by Target to get some of these this week!!! Those are adorable!

Amber said...

Those are too cute! I love the dollar spot at Target! I got everything for my son's Easter basket for a grand total of $7.

randee said...

Jodee Leader said...

Great find! I love Target too and especially the Dollar Spot!

Dawn said...

I looove the Dollar Spot at Tar-jay too!!!

Those lanterns are sooo cute! Where were they the other day when I was there? Grrr!

Enjoy!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

How sweet are they?! That's my first stop whenever I go to Target. There's always something there that I pick up!

Rhonda said...

I head to the dollar spot first at Target, but haven't seen those. I love them. Hope to see some next time I'm at Target!

Jennifer Juniper said...

I'm going there to find these! I saw a really cool display at IKEA this summer with this sort of lantern and they were hung from clear line and clustered at different lengths. I've had that concept in my mind ever since, but couldn't spring 6-14 bucks per lantern!

Rhiannon Nicole said...

I'm. so. jealous!!!

ThriftyAnnabella said...

Mom in High Heels said...

Oh how you torture me with your talk of Target and the Dollar Spot!

Jessica @ This Blessed Life said...

We totally don't have those in my Target! Jealous! I would be thrilled if you would consider linking these up to my "Work Your Wallet" party - starts this Wednesday! I think these are fabulous.

Tired Mom T├ęsa said...

I absolutely love the dollar spot at Target. So many great finds. Their tiny little pots of flowers do very well I've found and my kids love watching them grow.

Richella said...

I missed this post! And I can't believe I missed this! You did NOT get those at the One Spot! Did you?! Those are so stinkin' cute! Wish I'd seen them! Of course, I don't wish I'd seen them in YOUR Target. My toes are very susceptible to stilletos! ;)

Linda said...

OMGosh...looks like I will be heading to TARGET ASAP! I'm like you about the dollar section...I have found that Michaels has a really good $ section too!

Blessings,
Linda

Southern Fried Gal said...

Hey girl - I saw those at my store and reluctantly passed them up. They were a steal for sure, though! I'll probably regret when I see all the cute things you do with them!
