Thrift Store Goodness


I got a tiny bit of free time yesterday to take a jaunt by my favorite stores in town.

I only found a few things.

I have a few more I might go back to get...including an antique round end table for my night stand.
Similar to this one.

It was 20% off $35.00....let's do the math shall we?

10% of $35.00 is $3.50 and 20% is times 2....

$35.00 minus $7.00 is $28.00 plus tax.

Since my dear hubby got me a gift card for Christmas...it won't be an out of pocket money! {insert smile}
Instead of the beautiful table...here is what I found.

I found this little cutie at Clark's Thrift Store.


I'm almost 100% sure it is homemade and never used.

It was probably very lovingly made for a teenager who didn't appreciate the

sheer delightfulness of color and love that went into

the making of this beauty.



Just look at the bright sunshiney colors....can you just SMELL spring?

70's colors w/ a 21st century punch......

Who wouldn't want this purse?

I might use it for my camera....or my latest knitting project....which is really a LOOM project...seeing how Traci has NO IDEA how to actually knit.

Believe me when I tell you I've tried.....can ADD people actually knit?

I like the loom because I don't have to count.....oh no, neither could my widget....

Does that mean someone will discard me?

(If you have no idea what I just said, please CLICK HERE)






Can you put a price tag on a homemade with love gift?

I think I would probably eat a lot of chocolate, drink a bottle of wine, and crawl into my bed if I ever saw one of my creations just thrown away and

end up in a thrift store......especially if I MADE it for someone!

Thank GOD for us THRIFTERS who take these little orphans in and

show them the love they deserve!!


IT IS TIME FOR THE THRIFTERS TO UNITE AND STAND TOGETHER!!!
