Thrift Store Thursday

Here are some of my finds this week.  IMG_2680 Another lidded jar $1.29, a tiny vase $.50, and two spherical decorative objets $1.29 each (love these!).

IMG_2681 Two matted framed prints $1.50 each; I got these for the frames and mats only, but at one time, based on the stickers on the back, somebody paid $19.88 each for them at Garden Ridge!

The roll of ribbon was about $.30, and the glass telephone line insulator $.75.  I know these are collectibles, but I just thought it was kind of neat.

Today is Craig’s birthday, and since the kids only had about $4 between them, I took them to United Volunteers to do their shopping.  In the past we’ve gone to Dollar Tree, but basically it’s the same kind of stuff there all the time:  a mug or a screwdriver.  They were able to get some pretty cool stuff  at UV for just change (I won’t list it, since we haven’t given the gifts yet) .

I’m going to skip the linky today, because I’ve got a lot going on and I’m trying to be quick about this, but I plan to be back with it next week.

I love the idea of bringing the kids to the thrift shop to shop! I'm going to have to remember that -- much more creative than the dollar store. Cass

Okay, we would totally be fighting if we thrifted together, cause we would want the same things!! I just my first two insulators the other day. So cute and fun!! I can hardly ever pass up a lidded jar, either.

I have never even heard of a telephone line insulator. Hmmmmm. Very cool. I kind of like the flower pictures just the way the are. They wouldn't really go with the style in my house though.
