Thrifting Adventures


Ohhhhh this week.

Good finds.

Dirt cheap finds.

What will I hoard?  What will I sell?  I have no idea.  I may already be attached to a few things.

*   *   *   *

My mirror buying ban was temporarily revoked.  I purchased three.......


When a mirror has great old streaky glass, I cannot let it go.  And if the spray paint potential is there, I'm a goner.

 *   *   *   *

Pillows.  A new downfall of mine.... 


And if there's a matching set, no way I'm gonna leave one behind.

 *   *   *   *

Homemade shelfy thing........


For the office, kitchen, laundry, or garage even?

*   *   *   *

Vintage leather jacket.....


It's a tad big on me.  But.  It has a hood.  Hoods are good.

And the color, which happens to match my boots, is perfect.

 *   *   *   *

Everyone needs a picnic quilt made from old feedsacks.........


Rough, but insanely cheap.

 *   *   *   *

Perfection with a lid.  And moon detailing.....


Not a chip to be found.  Cheaper than dirt cheap.

 *   *   *   *

Speaking of cheep.........


HA!

Homophones anyone?

Sorry.  Fourth grade grammar. 

And maybe humor.

But anyway.

Four matching napkins.  Chickens pecking at the ground.  Hilarious.

Wait.

Chickens cluck.

  6. I loved getting a peek at what you purchased. It almost satisfied my need to shop...almost. It sounds like you could find a place for everything you just bought. Could it be possible that nothing is going in your booth :). You found some GREAT items...and hopefully, you batted your eyes and got some good deals to go along with them. I am loving your 'cheep' napkins :)

  17. I might have a slight obsession for pillows - I can hardly ever pass them up and they are usually cheap, cheap, cheap. I would have definitely put those in my basket. Really like the bowl and lid - is it marked? It has a Haegerish quality to it.
