Thrift store Wednesday

Because it is simply impossible to drop off a donation without taking a walk around "just to look".

The picture makes it look shiny, but the picnic basket is beautifully woven strips of wood.  I saw it in the donation room while dropping off our box of toys and asked if I could buy it.  They told me it was $3.  I offered them $5* and they told me no, that was too much because it was "old" and had "rust on the hinges".  Sigh. It's almost too beautiful to use and still has the paper manufacturers tag pasted inside. 

The chickens were 10c and 25c. It is impossible to refuse a stray chicken shaker.  I thought the black and white rooster looked like one we already had.


* My husband just told me that I'm terrible at bargaining and that's not how you're supposed to do it. Hahaha.


  1. HAH! Your husband is right but I love that you offered them more! And what great finds. I love it all.

    1. All of the proceeds from this place go towards the towm food pantry, medical clinic and homeless assistance. So really, $5 was still a bargain. :)
