I don't have anything creative to share today, but if you like seeing others thrifty finds, then stick around.
It's the beginning of March & there's no sign of spring weather here in northern Indiana. I remember hearing the phrase, "March weather comes in like a lion and out like a lamb." I wouldn't say it's like a lion so much, but it's cold and there's snow on the ground. So that means there are no garage sales going on right now. Bummer. I love garage sales!
What's my alternative? The thrift store in my town. Oh yeah! I visit it on a pretty regular basis. Like, at least a once a week basis. I mean it IS on the way to Walmart. I have found some really nice stuff in there! Some things are just stupidly priced way too high for a thrift store though. Other things are priced fair or pretty darn cheap!
I took a donation in on this particular day and they gave me a coupon for 25% off my next purchase! They've never done that before. Yes! Since the coupon was burning a hole in my pocket, so to speak, I decided it couldn't hurt to have a little look around.
I didn't really get much, but I didn't have to.
I was flipping out over finding this bigger wire sled. I can usually sell sleds that I've decorated up for Christmas at my craft shows. It's painted a metallic gold, but it won't be when I get done with it.
After I finally came back to earth after throwing the sleigh in my cart, I quickly seen this old looking cutting board on the next shelf. I just loved the rustic look it had. I had a vision for that and you'll see that in a future post.
I have been on the lookout for rustic scoops. I don't know what I'm going to do with them, but I think they're just interesting looking. I don't have any others, except for a cute little aluminum one. I could probably just leave this wooden one alone and not do a thing to it and still sell it, but I have to change it up in some fashion.
So like I said, nothing creative today, but if you like checking out other people's treasures, then this might have been an interesting read for you.
