OK most times I go to any thrift store I am looking for stuff for me. Stuff that I would use in my house. Since getting the booth up and running I now find myself buying stuff tweaking it and reselling it. Here just last week I found some really great stuff that I will more than likely keep. I know like I need MORE stuff. LOL. I just got done telling Steve last night I would like to condense my everyday decor down to one BIG tote. The fine print was that I would not condense my fall and Christmas stuff because I LOVE decorating for those seasons. My problem is I have many small totes that I just throw stuff in with no rhyme or reason. Than I forget what I have and then end up using the things I already have out instead of digging through everything. So why not condense into one place. Alright I know sounds good in theory. LOL
OK back to the great stuff I found!!!!
In this little grouping the cutting board table was just $4.00. I think Steve will be making a few of these.
A little closer look reveals cinnamon sticks, tiny pine cones, and the glass container ($.49) are all thrift store finds.
This next item I bought after seeing a couple of you buying stitcheries and cutting off the parts you don't like. I LOVE the poem "Footprints." I found this for $2.99. I'm still debating whether or not to cut off the bottom picture part. I know I want to darken it and paint the frame. Steve says he can alter the frame it's in to fit either way.
Now this next find was one that I made that goes against every fiber of my being. I preach about how I don't use hearts in my decorating. (yeah yeah I know I'm eating my words!!!!) But I couldn't pass it up. I"m such a sucker for tin candle sconces...
I bought a few more things I will be tweaking and reselling so I'll show you those when they are done. I also found out I do NOT like redipping candles or clothespins or whatever. LOL. Yeah that's a whole post in itself. BUT you will be happy to know I adapted and overcame to make my candles look like they were redipped.
I also got my quilt done for the Disappearing Nine Patch and am working on the last part of binding. Well, my friends I have lots to do today on my last day off. I go this afternoon to the ortho to have my foot xrayed. Let's hope it's healing correctly!!! But first I must go do some primping at the booth since we have pictures tomorrow for the newspaper.
