It's become a regular stop for me when I'm visiting my parents and I've scored some really awesome stuff. This trip was no exception. I spent less than $20 and got quite the haul.
salad spinner--$1 I've been searching high and low for a good salad spinner since I basically only buy leaf lettuce. This one far exceeds my old one and for a buck, I couldn't pass it up! (I recently saw this in a store for $30...score for me!)
compact umbrella--$1 I've also been searching for a cute little umbrella to keep in my car. This may not have been my first choice of fun prints, but it was only a dollar.
two scarves and red, fringy dress, hat for Graham--clothing bag sale $3 The dress is for a costume. Now that it's spring, G needed something to keep the sun out of his eyes.
fabric--$3.50 My stash keeps growing. I HAVE to start making things!
yellow Samsonite bag--$2 This bag is awesome! It's roomy, has pockets, is in great condition and will be the perfect diaper bag/carry on.
lamp--$3 I know this lamp is quirky, but I have plans for it. Stay tuned.
smock apron--$0.75 I went back later and found this, so they gave it to me for half price since the $3 clothing bag sale didn't help me out. I know it's weird, but I love it!
In addition to the thrift store, there is a little antique shop that I always visit. The woman who runs the place has everything marked 50% off, so I had to buy something. For less than $15 I came home with:
embroidered pillowcase-- I'm not sure what I'm going to do with this. I may use it as a pillowcase, or I may use it for something else. I just liked it.
shade for my quirky lamp-- Lamp shades are expensive and this one was only a buck, I couldn't pass it up.
turquoise Pyrex bowl-- The bowl is square and matches a red one I already have.
Not bad for St. Francis.
