I had an ever so small window to dash in the thrift store,and just look at the results!
This fabulous poster size ,Lee "go-go girl" was just 80 cents! I shall employ it in this Springs redecorating project for the girls rooms!
This satin coat dress just about stopped my heart!It was 4.99(now I ask you why are some things priced at the 1 cent shy mark of the dollar and others lopped off to the even 10,IE: 80 cents and 4.99 ? Ah ,the mysteries of the thrift store!)I have already worn it as a jacket over jeans. Just click on the below image for a close-up of that print.
Rounding out my 60 minute dash in and out of the thrift(yes, thats record time for me),was this lovely Spring/50's print tablecloth for 1.49,an ecru hand tatted doily for .69,long pearls for 2.00 (theres that pricing mystery again)and 2 AMAZING ethnic pillow covers for 2.99 ! Now thats what I call "feeling the thrifting click"!
If I had to vote on a "most likely to succeed Martha" award it would surely go to Jennifer, of The Felt Mouse.This year instead of Christmas cards,she sent "Newyears Crackers",to her pals.Upon opening ,you find sweet little symbols to help wish you Health ,wealth ,humor,and happiness. Right back at you dear Jennifer,and thank you for such a sweet thought!
