Man, I love thrift stores. And after this post by my dear friend Danae, I was inspired to share what I found at a recent thrift store excursion. I went with my dear friend Emily a couple of weeks ago. This is us right before we got our ears pierced our sophomore year of college:
Em is a great thrift store shopping friend. Mostly because she found this:
Yes, this is a picture of what you think it is. Basically, a reminder that Jesus cares about business too. Oh and you can't tell from this picture, but the photo hanging on the wall inside the office is of people in Africa getting baptized. Why anyone would get rid of this picture is beyond me...
But on to what I actually did buy:
This will be used a pitcher sometimes and a vase sometimes. Gotta love a versatile glass jar that cost $2.
This $1 jar has already found a home in my pantry holding ground flax seeds. I always forget to use them in cookies and things, so I thought a clear jar might help me remember.
Lovely, lovely old books coming in at $1 a piece.
Just pretend there isn't a hideous cross-stitch print in the frame. The round frame is the real gem. I couldn't pass it up for $3.
This has been making me smile ever since I brought it home. It really wasn't that cheap ($15) but I couldn't not buy it.
And my favorite. This was $9.99. I am obsessed. I think it might get a makeover at some point, and I really don't know where it's going to live, but again, I couldn't pass it up!
Anyone bought anything awesome at a thrift or antique store lately?
