I have been hit or miss lately with posting but not with thrifting! I have decided to make enough money on ebay and etsy to send myself to BlogHer Food '10 and maybe the foodbuzz festival too (shhh don't tell my loving husband about the 2nd one yet) so thrifting has taken a new different turn for me. I look at things from a sellers eye trying to figure out what will sell and what won't, so far so good. I've made some money above and beyond what I spend, that's a plus!
But truly I love the thrill of walking in and not knowing what I'll dig up.
Like this lamp, I love the shape of the base. The shade was torn but it's a real fabric shade with wire not a plastic sheath that can be crushed. For a dollar I have a new lamp. With a bit of creativity I'll sew a new shade.
This mirror was treasure from a garage sale last weekend makes the perfect nightstand addition. Not as a working mirror but just looking good.
Mmmmm glass bake mug 10¢!! Can you believe it? I've never seen the pattern before but I like it! The little vase is pretty and perfect for cut flowers. I love to fill my house with flowers even dandelions, it's an inexpensive way to brighten the day if you can grow your own.
Little Bo Peep, I found your sheep! I think these are adorable, too bad I don't know anyone having a girl! Vintage nursery kitsch, yummy.
I spent this evening making jam. Strawberry and Raspberry, 3 batches total. Mmmm I love to put away summer delights for winter use. Do you? Do you have questions about canning? Ask away!
