Thrift Shop Finds

As I've mentioned in a previous blog, my gang and I started volunteering at the local Thrift Shop.  One of the benefits of working there is that we get to see what comes in.  Being a weak person, I have very low resistance for a deal. Especially if it's something we can use around the house.  

Andrew and I discovered this CD rack for fifty cents.  It was originally supposed to be for him but he ended up deciding it would work best in the living room.

This was my take the last time I worked.  I am always on the lookout for baskets to use in my organizing.  I also found a vegetable grinder for $2.  The shoes were also $2 each (you know about my shoe fetish) and the tea cups were seventy five cents each.  I got the little dutch couple for $1.25.  Not Delfts Blue but still cute. The cookbook was thrown in.

Finally, the pièce de résistance.  This was unburied on the loading dock while we were sorting.  I snatched it up right away.  The chair set is in perfect condition and when I laid eyes on it I knew it would be just what we needed for our remodeled sun room.  It is amazingly comfortable and I think it was $10.00 well spent. 

I can't wait until next week.  I am still in search of a side table and lamp for the sun room...
