So off we went without makeup or breakfast, but with high hopes, lots of $1 bills, and our mutual good friend Eva. Trying to travel light, I forgot my camera! Drat! But we'll be going again soon and I promise to take it along. Some people--you know who you are--say that nothing is worth getting up so early for. But the thrill of the hunt is oh so worth it. And when you find a great deal on something you didn't even know you wanted--well, that's just the cherry on top.
Here's some of my loot:
Old picture frames $6 each
The lady wanted to sell me the whole lot of over a dozen various sized frames for $60, but we didn't drive the truck and had no room in the car :-(
A galvanized wash tub $5
Blue Ball canning jars $1 each
If my searching is correct, these date from 1910-1933
And today I discovered a new thrift store nearby! The cashier said it's been there 4 months--how could I have missed it?? I managed to spend $11 in the half hour I was there!
