One of my favorite things to do on a Saturday during the winter is thrift store shopping. I seem to long for a "junk fix" as you will when there are no yard sales or estate sales to hit. Hubby and I decided that a day hitting the thrifts would be the best form of entertainment. I love that man I do.
THIS POST. I was open minded enough to try it again. Now I think I am hooked and I LOVE THE BINS! It was exhilarating. A real rush for a junker like me. I think I just enjoyed the crazy digging. Fighting for the best loot along with several other junk shoppers. It really wasn't about the finds but about the looking - if that makes any sense. I would have been just as happy to leave behind what I pulled from the bins once I filled up my cart. I actually did leave quite a bit of things behind. I filled up my cart during the frenzy, then after things died down I sorted through everything and only bought those things that I couldn't live without. I'm actually proud of myself for the restraint I showed. I really could have lived without any of it, but I got out of there paying only $2.50 for some craft supplies (below) and 2 vintage felt Christmas stockings (and some shirts the kids wanted) - so I didn't do too bad. The point is I can control my buying. Which is a necessity when you love vintage and junking like I do.
Here is what we brought home from our entire day of shopping. As usual, hubby was better at finding things than me. It is great to have him around!
Here's to winter thrift shopping!
