thrifting

I do love a good bargain - who doesn't?  It doesn't matter to me if it's a really good sale or a second-hand find.  I can in no way claim to be one of those people with that incredible eye or the one who just always finds the best deal, but that doesn't diminish the fun.  Since we've moved to Minnesota, I spent many weekend summer mornings with the kiddos visiting yard sales.  Not only was it a good way to familiarize myself with the area, we were able to find things we needed for the new house.

And then winter hit -- but I've found a number of consignment and thrift stores that I like to visit on occasion.  So yesterday, after my spa outing I ventured over to one and found a few things.





... Vintage suitcase - love these to store items, but my boys are convinced I bring them home for their amusement.  We're learning to share.
... Condiment server with the cutest spoons
... Fabric
... Embroidered table runner
... Children's books
