Thrift Store Thursday
Well, the truth is I have become a crafting pack rat...big shocker to those who know me and have seen my stash! :) Anyway I am just going to accept this and share my great finds here in the hopes I find fellow thrift store devotees. I love to see what goodies everyone else finds as well! We live pretty far away from town so when I have an errand or weekly doctor visit I try to go to Michaels or a thrift shop. It seems to make the long drive feel less dreary, worth it, so to speak. Anyway this week I got a wonderful french dictionary, a beautiful 1936 Websters dictionary with the gold leaf trim and 4 other french books. Quite the find for this area. I paid $4.50 for all my books...big smile!
I also got a Moleskine journal for 50 cents. It has musical instruments embossed on the cover. Love it. Then..pause for effect...a whole bag of vintage crepe paper (one of my favs)! I so love using that stuff and a bit of aging makes it even better. I like to spray it with Glimmer Mist or Shimmerz. last but not least a bag full of great old sewing bits and pieces. Anyway I'm $17.96 poorer but can you tell I'm happy tonight? I'm sure some of this will turn up in my next project. maybe the green theme at Summer Of Color! :) Nan
