So, my mother and I went today to do a little bargain hunting, we were looking for containers for my candy buffet. Well, we definitely found some! First we went to the nearby Macy’s which is closing. They are having an inventory clearance. We got a 3-tier, glass cake stand (which is actually 3 stands that can be used as 1 piece or as 3 seperate ones) for $22! It was 40% off. Then we hit up some local thrift stores, 1 had nothing but we hit the jackpot in the other one! We got 5 more containers of various sizes for $13. Plus, I get 10 scoops yesterday from a girl on craigslist for $20.
We have almost everything we need already, when you combine what we got with what my mother already had. My candy buffet total stands at $55 right now.
Here’s some pictures of my loot!

Those look great! I also highly recommend Marshalls, TJ Maxx, and Home Goods Store. I found a ton of pretty jars for about 12 a piece and they’re HUGE.

Wahoo! Good finds. PS we are scoop twins 🙂
@Ribbons: Marshalls and TJ Maxx are good ideas, I hadn’t thought of them for containers!

Definitely hit up Home Goods if you have one near you. I got almost all my jars there and ended up selling them to my reception venue after my wedding for what I paid for them. Nice job on scoring some great deals!
