I have been trying to put myself on a thrifting diet as of late. I decided to do this for two reasons. First I need to take care of what I already have . Second I need to spend less money.
Sooo, I have stopped even looking for sales that start on Friday. I have completely given up that day. This is big let me tell you. Friday is the best day to go to sales in our small town.
Well I wanted to go out on Saturday but again didn't want to spend any money. So I slept in and took only twenty dollars and went to just 1 estate sale . Oh I got there 3 hours after it opened.
I went with daughter number 2 who is 11 years old. Figuring it would A. be dead and B. be picked over I figured I would be ok and have money left over.
Wrong!! On both accounts.
First I found this vintage egg basket full of dried gourds for $6.00. I will probably throw out the gourds and then give the basket a bath.
I then found these vintage lusterware salt and pepper shakers for $3.00
This is my favorite find of all 6 vintage red polka dot and white striped drinking glasses for $4.00
This set was $3.00 and has cute little dogs on them.
This was $1.00
And so was this carpenter's ruler.
This book from 1941 was just $2.00.
It is just chocked full for photos.
All this came to exactly $20.00.
Then we were leaving and I found this on a table outside marked $3.00 so i dug deep and asked if he would take $2.00, he did!!! Yea!!!!
I could have spent much much more at this sale and there were a ton this weekend in our area that I wish I could have went to.
Oh well there is always next week.
