I still love looking at the ads in the paper on Fridays...even though we have a chance of snow and things are looking mighty sparse on the yard sale front, it still gets me all hopped up to make a whirlwind tour of the thrift stores.
I spend quite a bit of this time between now and Christmas torn. I have a lot of Christmas yummies that I can be redoing. Not Hoarder levels, mind you, but a lot. Enough to keep me occupied for the season.
But THIS is the time of year that all the thrift stores bring out THEIR yummies that they have been hoarding--I mean holding on to--until this time of year.
If I don't replenish my goods now, I may not get another chance to until NEXT November.
And that would make me sad.
I have been heading out on specific days to do my 'Christmas' thrifting. I move quickly and steadily through several shops and try to limit it to 2 hours total. If I plan it right, I can visit *5* different places that are all roughly in the same area in under an hour.
And only focusing on Christmas.
These are a couple of the treasures found earlier this week:
Let me know if you find anything cool over the weekend!
