Frugal Friday Find: $5 bin at Ferdinand in Portland

Ferdinand Bin

The $5 Bin at Ferdinand

They say you can’t get anything for $5 anymore. That is a lie. I spotted the beloved $5 bin outside Ferdinand the other day and it was filled with scarves, wood-handled bags and a polyester shirt from the 70s that beckons for you to give it a good home. Swing on by this weekend to see what other goods owner Diane Toepfer has dumped into the bin. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
