Okay, so there's a common theme to my recent posts...I Made It & I Found It. It's easy. And to the point.
This past weekend I went thrifting with a couple of good friends and it was a great day!
Beautiful weather, cheap but awesome finds, not a care in the world. Mostly.
Don't know if you know, but
I LOVE PYREX!
Damage done: $5 for two
Cute little Amish people on a pyrex bowl, hm?....yes, please!
Next, and probably my most favorite deal of the day,
Vintage coin purse/wallet
Beautiful colors, multipurpose...
Sold!...to the obsessive compulsive shopper who likes to drag her friends along.... 50 cents!
a framed sample of cross stitching.
I love a country flair, I love embroidery of any kind, I love taking the time to create something from nothing.
I love this piece for all of those reasons! And it was $4.
I like to think about the person who took care to stitch each stitch. I have no clue how old this is, but it says
"Let me live in the house by the side of the road and be a friend to man."
A simple mission is all I need.
Lastly, a great find. A rare find.
Nearly new. Kelly green. JCrew, skinny fit, cropped corduroys (Well, they're cropped on my at least, I think that's what the "S" means).
Buy these new and you'll drop about $80.
I got lucky. 5 Bucks.
They're a little snug, but stretchy enough to be okay.
Who knows, I might end up selling them.
I did get a few other things that I didn't take pics of.
A couple of Little Golden Books for my new nieces and nephews (10cents each). A softball for Dustin (50 cents). A nice dry-fit exercise shirt (25 cents). And four bread pans ($1total) for my herb garden this spring! Oh, and a vintage mini-bundt cake pan ($2). Not for baking, but for organizing or even starting some mini sunflower seeds and letting them grow inside before transferring them to deeper soil.
Hope you've enjoyed my finds! I will be creating an Etsy store soon for all of my finds that I have to detach myself from....I'll let you know more about that as it progresses!
