Not quite sure why I haven't been on the hunt lately, thrift hunting that is, but I finally broke out of my rut on Friday at the Goodwill on Rosecrans (if you're in the San Diego area). I didn't get much, three items but I was amazed at how big the store was, how clean it was, how reasonably priced everything was, and how nice everyone was...I really could go on. But let me show you what I got!
Well, first of all I wanted to showcase my friend Jan's portrait of the Lovely Sadie, my sweet companion for about eight years now. Jan had seen a picture I took of Sadie, wanted to paint it and there it is, all framed out and ready to hang on the wall in a place of honor.
I collect tea pots and one day I'll do a post of my collection but here is the latest addition, an English cottage, at $4. I thought it was a deal. The slip on shoes are by Bandolino and were only $6.99, barely worn, no tread marks on the soles, the insides were spotless, and not a scuff mark to be seen. I'm surprised I got these shoes because I'm not really into two-toned shoes but I rather liked this pair and it was in pristine condition. As for the flip flops, I couldn't resist the pink flowers and they were brand spanking new, never worn at $1.
I love thrift hunting, you just never know what you'll find. How about you?
Have a great Sunday everybody! Sadie sends her regards.
PS - and if you're wondering about the great animal print box, I got it at Ross's a couple of years ago. It was $10 for a series of 5 nesting boxes.
