No, not the movie, silly! The store. I LOVE thrift stores. Like big red puffy heart LOVE them. I just get so excited looking at the new (old) stuff that comes in daily, and I love looking for hidden treasures on the shelves. Luckily, Husband supports this, and also looks forward to thrifting. In fact, I'm pretty sure we've been 7 times to 4 different stores within 5 days. Anyhow, here are some of the goodies I've found:
Old Shabby Shutter. I've been looking for some old shutters ever since I saw someone display Christmas cards in the slats. Well, I finally found one! Two, actually, but the other was beat up pretty bad, and beyond repair. It was less than $2, and now I just need to figure out what color I want to paint it.
Antique Blue Ball Jar with Lid. I love all jars, but blue ones in particular. The rubber gasket fell off, but I think I can fit it back on. SIDE NOTE! Did you know you can take the annoying wax pencil price marks off of glass with mayonnaise? Before washing, just put a little blob on, let sit a minute, and wipe off. Ta da!
Mail sorter with 236 year old sticker I scraped off. Its ugly, but it was $1 so I don't mind. A little paint will spruce this baby up.
Have you found any good treasures at the thrift store lately?
