I'll be linking up with Apron Thrift Girl for Thrift Share Monday and Me and My Shadow for Magpie Monday.
In addition to a few thrift stops this week, I was able to go to an actual yard sale! Yea!!! I love yard sales with a deep and burning love. You simply can't beat them for bargain pricing. My mom and I like to go out together, and two of my three kids love to tag along.
First for my thrift finds this week. I hit the little charity thrift shop up the hill from my house. It is only open a few hours a week, so I don't get in there very often. When I do go, I rarely walk out empty handed. This week I found quite a few great books for the kids, and a special little treat.
The puzzle book is for the kids, but Bekah will probably claim it. She has a weird and fascinating ability with puzzles, but that a subject for another post. Do you see the little treasure in front?
That's a darling teapot for loose tea, and it was just .75. Husband and I went to Taiwan last year, and we were gifted with several tins of loose tea. This should be perfect! It's in new condition, and does not appear to have been used.
Later in the day Mom and Joshua and I stopped at a yard sale. It was late, after 3:00, but the seller was preparing to move, so she was still selling. I got this...
How do you thrift? Do you go looking for a specific item, or do you let the items find you?
