Yesterday, I took a break from sewing and such to go shopping. There were so many things we needed…and I had to do the obligatory Wal-mart run anyway…and the thrift store was right there… So, shopping I went. If you have read my blog, or have known me for any length of time, you know that I LOVE to shop at thrift stores. I seriously will not (and can not) pay retail for clothing, not to mention all the other cool items that I can find to repurpose or upcycle there. My mother and I shared this passion when she was alive and so it is a sentimental experience to boot.
Anyway, yesterday was no exception. All told, I came home with 13 pieces of clothing (including 3 pair of jeans) for $30. As if that was not awesome enough, I managed to come across a brand new light fixture for my ceiling fan in my sewing room (something that was on my list for Home Depot) for $3 and various other items, picture frames and such, for another $8. The icing on the cake (or in this case cookies), though, was this:
The box had all 101 cutters and it was so much fun to look at them all. I suppose there will be some cookie baking going on around here soon 🙂
Do you shop at thrift stores? If so, why and what have you scored lately?
