Thrifty Store Scores:)

The other day a couple girlfriends and I met for breakfast and then we were headed to my local consignment store. However, we enjoyed our breakfast so much, they ran out of time for shopping....so I had to go by myself:) I always have fun browsing this store - even visiting with the owner and other ladies in the store - but finding not one but several cute things makes it all the better:) And for such a bargain!!

These are just a few of the things I brought home for the house.....


but I really LOVE this pitcher! Even has a bit of a bluish tone - making it perfect in my living room!!

My favorite, though, is this wrought iron rooster centerpiece for the kitchen. When we first moved in, I put out my Christmas things...then winter and then Easter. Since then, I have been looking for something for the table and this is it! And it was a red-ticket item - half price!! Woo D Hoo!!

  2. Oh I LOVE these...And yet ANOTHER thing we have in common. I LOVE to go to thrift stores and look not only for bargains of course, but for things with a history and meaning. There are a couple of them here in downtown Upland, with antique stores as well. One of my favorite places to spend an afternoon. I think we'd have a great time doing this some day...Where did you put that wonderful vase? Have a great day...HUGS

  5. Hi Jen! Okay I'm stealing that word..."Woo D Hoo!" I LOVE it cause I have a weird word fettish and this word is just SO CUTE! I'll have to add it to my writing vocabulary :-) I can so HEAR you saying it too! Hee-hee :-) You say it often when you're happy and it's just fun to hear you say it and fun to hear you happy :-) So love that word!!

    By the way, can we stop at that consignment store when I come up? May not be able to do TOO much shopping these days (as we talked about on the phone) BUT hey, if it's a consignment store, then just MAYBE I can let a few things slip by, hee-hee :-)

    Can't wait to see ya!

    Love,

    Erica
