The thrift store God's have been good to me recently. Between the flea market, Habitat Restore, and GW I have made a haul.
On a recent trip to Habitat for Humanity Restore Steve and I found the brown crock bowl. It has a HUGE chip, but for $2.00 I'll turn it to the back. Of course while we were there we picked up some wood pieces too for more fun building projects.
That same day we went to GW and I thought I wasn't gonna find anything. I kept looking and looking. This is the same GW where I scored a bunch of fabric. Which, by the way, I found out the JoAnne Fabric store donates fabric to GW about twice a year. Anyway, I turned around and lo and behold... $2.50 for the big one and $.50 a piece for the little ones.
On the way home that same day we stopped at another flea market. This isn't the one where my stuff is at. Anyway, I rarely ever find anything here. But I was clear in the back room where it looks more like a yard sale. This one person had some pretty good stuff. I got all 6 bowls on the left for $4.00 I think. The other set of bowls I got at the antique store a couple days before this trip. I paid a little more for these, which I'm mad about. Anyway... I will be painting these up and selling them.
Then I also found these cute cheese boxes for $1.00 a piece.
Last but not least. My favorite find of the day. OK I saw these the last time I was there. Alright you are going to have to use your imagination on this because Steve already got a hold of them and fixed it. I originally found all the sewing drawers in a make shift wood frame. There were open gaps next to all the drawers. It was rough looking. BUT I wanted a look a like apothecary. So while I was at work one day Steve whipped this up. He told me that I still needed to clean the drawers because they smell like "bird poop". LOL. I'm not sure if I'm going to paint it or not or just throw some stain on the top piece. I also want him to build two more drawers for the bottom space that you see. I have no idea where I'm going to put it yet. I may have to get rid of something else. LOL.
My phone is back up and working. It took me actually banging the keys with my hands to make it operational. BUT of course I didn't do that until I had already called Verizon and ordered a new phone and re upped my contract. Grrrrr.... story of my life. LOL.
I've been working on my next quilt top so that I can clean up the mess I made doing it. LOL. Then I can make another mess making other stuff for the booth. It's a never ending cycle. OH and to top that off I bought new fabric yesterday from the Hearthside quilt shop since it's going out of business. I bought all kinds of civil war repro prints for 50% off. It is so sad to see them go. I guess Lehman's didn't think they were making enough money for them. :( Now I need to find another shop to go to for my fabric fixes. OR I guess I could cut back on my fabric buying. Naaaahhhh that wouldn't be any fun. LOL.
