Salvation Army Finds!

As you may know, I love garage sales.

So what is a girl to do in winter when there is no hope of a garage sale until spring???

The Salvation Army and the Vietnam Veterans thrift stores! I'll admit they aren't as much fun as a good old fashioned garage sale in the middle of summer but beggars can't be choosers!

So the other day I had a little time to kill and look what I found! A beautiful pewter pitcher which will be awesome with my early American themed dining room! The cost-$1.99! Can't beat that!

Some days there is nothing interesting. I have a feeling the people who frequent these places regularly get all the neat stuff-This is only a very occasional outing for me. But once in a while I get lucky.

I love it! At my thrift stores that would have easily been $10. :o(

It's weird because sometimes I find absolute junk that is marked higher than the good stuff. I think it's mostly that the people working there have no idea what stuff is and tend to mark it based on what they think it is worth!
