Thrift Store Shopping… Look What I Found

I browsed all the aisles looking for things I could use as props in my photos.

I need to thank “someone” or somebodies. The Somebodies who donated these to The Salvation Army. THANK YOU!! I am SO GLAD they did not work out in your home. 😀

This is what I got.

OMG!! I love this green picture frame. Kind of takes you back to the good old days. The 40’s and 50’s. It was only $3.99. New in the box. Will definitely consider wrapping it up as a gift the next time I need one.

These were all great finds. $2.99 each. But LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this vase/jar with the lid. It is super heavy. It will go perfectly with a quilted item I have in mind.

I couldn’t resist these glasses with the pretty leaves. BROWN leaves. You know I am a sucker for anything brown. Priced at $1.99.

You can never have too many coffee mugs!! 99 cents each… Most of my time there was spent picking up cups and mugs and imagining what fabric I would use to make something. Now I have to make more Mug Rugs.

More 99 cents items. Cotton pillowcases I am going to cut up. And don’t laugh at the little doll babies. I plan to make a few doll quilts. In the future.

At the register, the lady asked if I was 55. I gave her one of my “surely you jest” turn of the head smiles. As I handed her my driver’s license, I mentioned I was 66. I think they knew I was over 55 but had to ask anyway. So they could give me the 25% off senior discount. Happy to oblige!!

To tell you the truth….. I happy to tell ANYONE my age. As long as a discount follows.

    I love the tiger striped material and the wreath ring. You can do so many things with it.
    I am almost done with my newest Macrame hanger and will probably start another over the weekend. I am on a roll!
    Have a great weekend, whatever it holds for you!

    Yikes! Now *I* am starting to imagine your finished projects!!! LOL

    I see a little baby doll all snuggled up under a colorful quilt . . .

    and I see a table with mugs . . .

    lots of mugs . . .

    ALL on mug rugs!

    Great bargains, Donna! Glad you had fun. 🙂

    Hi everyone.

    I am rethinking my plan to shop there every Wednesday. I kind of go crazy, LOL!! And the point (at my age) is to destash not restash. Maybe once a month to see what’s new.
