This week, I started reminiscing about the past after returning from a fun afternoon of "treasure hunting" at some consignment stores here in town. The old days are sure gone, but I think consignment stores are more fun. I found this mixer--still works!--for just $7.00. It reminds me of what my grandma probably used....and will be so much easier to lift than my heavy Kitchenaid mixer for quick, little tasks.
And, I found exactly what I've been looking for, for ages--a large, heavy oak framed mirror, with beveled glass, that works perfectly by our front door, for just twenty bucks.
At one garage sale last year, I completed my entire set of Noritake company china--with about two dozen pieces-- for $25.00!
Not all my "treasures" prove to be great bargains. I have certainly made errors...like the fake Coach purse I thought was a steal (oops!) or a beautiful, dark navy Burberry wool coat that showed a lot of damage under the better lighting at home.--tiny holes all over. Moths, maybe?
So how about you? Do you enjoy thrifting? If so, what are some of the special treasures you have found? Happy hunting!
And speaking of finding a bargain, for those who leave a comment on this blog, there will be a drawing for a free e-book, from any of my titles now available on Amazon.
