What a weekend. With the kids back-to-school today my weekend was sprinkled with back-to-school shopping with a dash of thrifting. Good thing estate sales started early this weekend. There were two that started on Thursday that were within my usual driving route, so I got my thrifting on early.
I was excited to see this estate sale open early, usually they start around 9 or 10, but this one started at 8. It was a mad dash to do a run through, so I could be to work on time (my usual 8 minutes late). In my run through I got some great Vaseline glass and a really neat jug.
During lunch I hit up my second estate sale, on Thursday, and got this really cute tea pot ($2). It will be great to have in the winter when it's hot tea weather.
I also got this really nice umbrella. It looks oldish, but the fabric is in fantastic shape and for $3 it was a steal compared to the cheap ($9) umbrellas sold elsewhere.
*Sigh* Can you tell I'm yearning for some cool weather and rain? Well at least I can use the umbrella to blot out the sun and create some artificial shade. It's HOT! Check out the temps for this week.
Saturday I re-hit the estate sale I went to Thursday morning to see if there was anything I wanted at 50% off. I only walked away with these super cute fabric napkins, and I was surprised they were still there. I picked them up on Thursday, but put them down. Good thing I did because now I got them for half the price.
Does anyone else get bothered by this? Does your thrift shop bag glass items together? It makes me nervous, especially when it's something I want to buy.
Oh! and the soda fountain glasses still had their original labels, Crate and Barrel, got 4 for $2.99. Is that a deal or what?
