Anyone else having a real slow start to the thrifting/garage sale season? It is slim pickings around these part.
I found a couple cute little girl patterns. The one is a Laura Ashley pattern that originally cost eleven dollars. I laughed as I paid my seventy-nine cents.
Then I found some nice camp mugs,
and the matching skillet a week later.
This sun hat was an unbelievable find, since I got the matching dress, in the same size, at a different thrift store last year. Even more unbelievable is that Little Girl will actually keep it on her head.
I saw this tray from across the store and knew it must be mine. For a dollar I now have psychedelic honeybees to decorate my kitchen.
Finally, the piece de resistance, a canner. Finally, finally, finally, a canner. I have been prowling for one of these for years. Imagine my surprise when bam, there is not one, but two sitting on the thrift store shelf.
I guess I have had a few good conquests, but I am hoping things will pick up soon. I am growing tired of going to garage sales where they are selling all the same things that are sitting in my garage sale pile. I need a good retirement community sale. Those are always the best. I wonder who the patron saint of garage sales is.
