I often stop by the thrift store after I have an appointment with the endocrinologist, since it's near the doctor's office.
Last time we went, Tiger Lily and I found lots of treasures.
|Teacups for making candles in, and a pudding mold! I've been wanting one, so that was a fun find.|
|A three little pigs melamine bowl for Tiger Lily, who is obsessed with the Big Bad Wolf|
|The brown paper that the dishes were wrapped in—I'm saving it for Christmas wrapping!|
|Candles for just under 25¢ each. Going in my storage in case of emergency, and also to be used on the dinner table.|
|A sheet. I keep saying I'll stop buying them, but then I find such nice ones that would make cute clothes for Tiger Lily. I like working with sheets much better than new fabric because they wrinkle up less and never shrink.|
|A few things for the kids: two puzzles to do together on Sundays; an ABC card game to help Tiger Lily learn her alphabet; some crepe paper, and a box of crayons.|
What do you think: trash or treasure? Sometimes I can't decide. I try to keep my purchases practical, but it's so easy to let a few frivolous things slip in, and it's not as if we actually need any of this stuff.
Have you thrifted anything good lately?
