Wow! I've been MIA with the thrift shares the last two weeks, and barely... just barely making it this week.
I've been a bit overwhelmed with my thrifty finds, and a bit discouraged by the lack of getting items moving along in my Etsy shop. Therefore I've done the very hard task of steering clear of thrift shops, garage and estate sales, but this weekend I had to get out at least for some mild thrifting.
Thursday I ran by one of my regular stops, where I usually score my vintage sheets, and it did not let me down. I walked in, down the linen isle, grabbed two, and was out in probably 6 minutes. I'm glad I made this stop because I scored a fantastically colorful groovy sheet, and a lovely simple floral one.
Aren't the owls great? They measure about 11" x 6".
On Saturday I made a weak attempt at some garage sales, but I wasn't in much of a mood for it. However, I love it when I find plant garage sales. Plants have been another thought in my mind to sell on the side, but I haven't been that dedicated yet to continuously water and upkeep an array of clippings. So when I do see these garage/home sales of plants I stop to make a purchase even if it's small, simply because I know it would make the growers happy (It would make me happy to sell plants I grew. You know what I mean?). I'm glad I did stop because I got this really large Passion Vine for $10. Now usually I would steer away from such an exotic type plant because I would think it would not last in this Texas heat, but about a month ago I went to an Estate sales where this plant was growing crazily around the house....it was amazing. So I know it can grow here and I'm determined to have it grow in my back yard. The flowers are gorgeous when it blooms.
My thrifting week/end was small, but satisfying. It was a good pace.
