So from reading all the other posts I must admit something.... I stumbled across YHL blog while looking up the phrase "thrift shop" on Pinterest. I am not an avid reader of the blog. I know. Please forgive me! I have since spent some time looking at the blog and wow. Totally awesome. I saw a competition going on.
There are 5 thrift stores close to my house and another on my way to work in a neighborhood that is much more upscale. I've seen fridge freezer combos there! I digress.. I'll post about that on Friday.
I did not take a picture of me outside with $20 because first I was using plastic and second there was a group of unsavory looking people out there.
What did I come home with? Well I did pretty good if I do say say myself!
My goodies! A brass magazine rack priced $3.99 with a green tag so it was half off! $1.99! 2 embroidery loops which I do have have plans for! Priced $.59 each! A mannequin form .. I love it.. I have one but am glad to have another one for craft show displays for my aprons! Price $7.99.
I could see opening my fridge during the hot Phoenix summer and see a whole shelf of vintage pitchers.. full of cold orange juice, iced tea, lemonade, water, Kool-Aid, and apple juice. Ahhhh I hope to find more awesome ones! The orange one was $1.99 and the one with a lid was also $1.99
I know if you have been adding this is over $20.00 BUT WAIT.... I had a 20% off total purchase! The total after tax was about $21.00 so still went a bit over. :(
Here is what I did with that bronze rack! a can of spray paint $.96 from Wal-Mart... yep that's right I buy the cheap spray paint because after the classy comes the cheap punk ;) Now I have a cute TP holder. Also I need to go in there and mop! YIKES!
