I don't know if it is the fact that I finally joined Pinterest and am completely obsessed and inspired, my new sewing machine (which I am super proud of), or the fact that I have been at home for the past 2 weeks, but it is probably a combination of the three!
Yesterday I woke up with no intentions of doing anything out of the ordinary. I had plans to get our home cleaned and make dinner, but it hit me around 10:00 AM.
I was having breakfast and playing around on Pinterest, and I was totally inspired.
I got myself ready and went thrift store shopping!
First I hit up Goodwill. I was there for about 2 hours digging through the clothes and the junk, and may I just say, I really hit the jackpot!
|Bought this mirror for $8. I want to paint it a funky color, but Johnathan likes it the way it is. I'm fine with it for now.|
(Sorry the picture is sideways.)
|These are actually the reason I went to Goodwill. We have been meaning to hang some engagement pics for a while now.|
These frames just need a little paint and they will be perfect for what we wanna do! $1 a piece.
|I have big plans for these guys! I was so excited to find them. $2 a piece.|
|I can't wait to add to this collection. Again, another item I have big plans for! :) $1 a piece.|
|One of my favorite purchases of the day. I have been wanting one of these! Found this one for $1. :)|
I also found some clothes that I may post pics of later. Super cute! I can't wait to get skinny again so I can wear the shirts. *sigh
After 3 hours in Goodwill, I was ready for the next stop. I drove about a mile down the road and hit up Value Village. One of my favorite thrift shops!
***P.S. If you have a Value Village in your area they have 1/2 price sales every last Wednesday of the month where everything in the store is half off, so their already super cheap stuff is even cheaper! Too bad for me I didn't think to go shopping the day before because it was the last Wednesday of the month. Bummer. :(
Anywho, after an hour at V.V. I found some really great treasures!
|Found this set of 4 circus cart art. I'm not sure what I am going to do with them yet, but I know they will|
make an awesome piece in Daisy's room. Maybe hang them in a long shadow box?? We shall see... Only .80 a piece!
|Here are the individual close ups. They are on wooden blocks. Each one has a different year on them.|
|Found the records for .40 a piece. This one needs to be framed and hung in D's room. Love it!|
This one was still in it's plastic wrap.
|We are going to figure out some way to display these for Christmas.|
We need a record player....hmmmm.
and, I found a cute purse for $3 at V.V. It is currently hanging out to dry after being washed thoroughly. When I use it I'll post a pic.
All in all it was a good, thrifty day! :)
