I hope this doesn't sound materialistic, but isn't stuff just kinda fun? Shopping for stuff is fun. And shopping for stuff that's practically free? Really fun.
That's why I love shopping at thrift stores. It's like the dollar store, only with stuff you'd actually want! And since bargain hunting is no fun unless you gab with your friends about it, I wanted to share a few of my recent thrifted finds with you guys. Like these gorgeous wooden bowls for just over ten cents each! (I'm on the biggest wood kick right now for some reason.)
A Plaid tunic and vintage belt:
Vintage remnants: Yes!!
Loved this skirt and shirt. And bonus--they were handmade!
This game is for Paige. Really, it is.... :o)
True story: I have been looking at this wrapping since the first time I went to our local thrift store a year ago! I never got it because it didn't have a sticker and I was too scared to ask how much it was. ( I know. Pathetic.) :O) Sailboats make me so happy!
Did any of you have a little suitcase like this when you were a kid? I think I might have had a Care Bears one. I just couldn't resist it! Paige will love packing it up for a trip to Grandma's.
And my absolute favorite recent find: these awesome wheels! I couldn't believe it when I saw these on the shelf and they were my size. What are the odds? And I really needed....roller skates....right? :O)
So there are a few of the fun things I've found lately. Are you so ready to hit the thrift stores now?? If you've never checked out your smaller, local thrift stores you should do it! The larger chain thrift stores are all right, but I always have much more luck at the stores that you have to hunt for. And don't forget, yard sale season! I always find my fabric and crafting supplies at yard sales and thrift stores. I love the thrill of the hunt!
Have a great day today!
