Earlier this week I visited two thift stores and came home empty handed with exception of two small taper candle holders for .30 cents that I needed after my last pair cracked.
Yesterday on the way back from picking up groceries I decided to stop of the smallest of Thrift Stores in my area. Although very tiny I continue to find lots of goodies there.
|Vintage Watercolor Unknown Artist|
|Japanese Lotus Shaped Bowls|
|Two Handcarved Masks|
|Vintage Myrtlewood Condiment Set|
All of these were bought with the idea of reselling at my next flea market. I always buy things that I would like to display in my own home. Hubby immediately loved the Myrtlewood and the masks. We are keeping the masks as they go with a small African themed area in our dining room. The total bill for this shopping trip? $8.80 Canadian.
I have also converted hubby to buying thrift store clothing (a very long process) as yesterday he wanted a fleece jacket that he could use for working outside but nothing too nice in case it got wrecked. I did not go with him as was in the middle of putting together a casserole but directed him to which thrift store had the best selection of mens clothing in our area. He came home with a Northface fleece jacket and a brand new pair of mens shoes. He cannot always buy his clothes there as wears a lot of suits and dress shirts that we purchase new for the business but for casual clothing he is now open to it. He came home saying what a great store that was. Ten years ago when I met him he was great at saving money on things like used vehicles but wouldn't be caught dead in a thrift store. A major breakthrough and a great week of thrifting for both of us.
