Thrifting

This doesn't happen very often. 
Just me.

Solo.
At Goodwill.

I've been looking for some picture frames. 
Big chunky ones.
I have this idea in my head that I'm wanting so badly to play out for my master bedroom.

What I've learned? They're way overpriced at a normal store. 
Duh! I know. 
Call me cheap but I even hate paying more than 6-7 bucks for them. 
So on my solo scaventure today (like my new word?) 
I saw this black frame and I snatched it up quick. 
For $2 I could not pass it up. 


And then the others just hopped into my buggy out of the blue.
Did I cry?
Goodness no!
(I've been reading Pete the Cat waaaay too much I think!)

Then...
I saw this basket. 

Have I told you how much I love baskets?
Just ask the Mr. 
He'll tell you. 


Perfection at $4...SOLD!!
I checked this brand when I got home.
Yeah...brand new they run around $50-60. 
Talk about happy happy!

I also came across this lovely trio.

It's true what they say...
Good things come to those who wait.
I've wanted a set of these birds for quite a while.
One for each of my kiddos ya know. I may or may not have been spotted doing the happy dance in the home-goods aisle on my solo thrifting scaventure. 

That was all I really found that made it home with me. 
I love my finding things to bring character and pizzazz to our home.
I don't always find something.
There are times I leave empty handed. 
Others I'm overloaded with thrifty scores. 
That's the fun in it though.

Do you like to thrift shop?
What are your latest finds?

  1. Oh my Lord. . .You've got the thrifting bug, too?! It must be a Morton thing. . .lol
    Mom and I have always had our favorite thrifting haunts, usually those with the best book selection. . However, I look around my house now and most of what I own is 2nd-hand. . .and I LOVE IT!. . .
    I'm so glad you had the free time to engage in a little thrift therapy. . .and I LOVE those little birds. . .so cool.
