What I really loved to do, back when, was thrifting. Over the years, I have come home with some real treasures( Bread Machine I have had for years and is still working $5, Joseph Abboud suit my husband is still wearing…$7). Since the REALLY tight times struck, I have felt as though we can afford nothing so there is no need to go shopping.
Thursday last week, I found myself in need of super hero costumes. A thrift store safari was in order.
I am fairly certain we found the object of our search, but-who-the-heck-really-knows?
In the course, I rediscovered my first love.
Tres jolie, non?
That is a five (5). But. They were 35% off.
I was captivated…and apparently, I am cheaply had.
My tailored side was not to be left out. Linen. Straight from the dry cleaners.
Also found: another pair of shoes, a child’s primary colored bookshelf, “Wonder Twin” purple t-shirts, and a cobalt blue tea kettle…Total $36.00*
Rediscovering the bliss of rescuing precious things others have left behind…priceless.

*the thrift stores held no better cameras. Yeah, I get that this is really for showing off you camera skills as well as your kids.
