thrifted finds

Apparently our trip to the thrift store this weekend was quite successful. Not only did we score tons of books, practically brand new for the kiddos (at only 38 cents each), but I also became the proud owner of all of this trim goodness, pretty vases and lovely little pedestal dishes. I already have plans for some of that trim. And the dishes would be cute for holding scrapbooking thingies such as colored paperclips, brads and embellishments.

The best part was the price. Because it was a 1/2 off sale the dishes were 99 cents, the vases were 49 cents and the trim was $2.49! I also scored a cute yellow purse for $2.49, boxed puzzles for the boys .25 cents/each, movies for the kids .50 cents/ each, silk Ann Taylor head scarf for under $2, and a cool chair for $2.50. (Next time, I'll have to check for vintage linens.) How exciting! Who knew you could find such cool stuff at your local thrift store.

ps. Hope you all had an awesome 4th of July! There was supposed to be this fun, patriotic food related dessert picture on here yesterday... with a little note from me to you wishing you a wonderful holiday. Unfortunately, I never got around to making that dessert.....after all, it is the thought that counts. ♥
