Thrifting on Thursday

I LOVE a sale…especially a 50% off sale at my favorite thrift store!! Well today was my day!!!!

This is my haul:


A little closer…


This is what all is in that pile:

2 sleeping bags ~we ARE going on a family camping trip!

4 bowling balls ~ yes, four! You’ll see them made over very soon!

2 basket balls ~ also destined for a makeover soon.

1 nice metal stand with 3 shelves ~ getting a coat of spray paint

2 nice pillows that match my bedroom colors perfectly!

2 boat towels

A laundry basket,large brass planter, unique watering can, frame, wooden crate, wood curtain rod, a large bag of wooden craft supplies, 108_7890 and I really needed the wood beads and balls for a couple of projects I’m working on! I love it when that happens…I live in a small town with no craft stores and our Walmart has basically no craft supplies and I find my wooden beads at the thrift store!

I also found some really nice, new yarn!


It was a very profitable day!

Have you had any good thrift experiences lately??


  1. OK, Sharon, where is this thrift store that's your favorite??? I got an really cool basket at Goodwill on Monday, and a really neat candle holder....
