Last week I decided to go thrifting down the road. I haven’t been since I got out of the hospital and I was ready for a fun day of “hunting”. I asked my friend Cathy if she wanted to go with me to meet a blog friend from MRL’s Spring Fling. Wait, this is confusing, let’s back up a little bit.
When I got back from Making Merry In Berry Hill, I told y’all what sold and didn’t sell. None of my rustic crates have ever sold. After a few emails with some that left comments, I mentioned to one friend that I was ready to burn them. She said “whatever you do, don’t burn them”. Another commenter (Nova) said she really liked them, and would like to get a couple from me. I told her if she wanted them, they were hers for the taking! So, this friend, lives “down the road” where we like to thrift shop. We made plans to meet up. The day before we were to meet, I got several emails from a nice lady on Craig’s list who wanted to buy my double pedestal table for her daughter who is buying a new house. Well, it just so happens SHE lives “down the road” too! It’s not so far away, about 30 minutes or so, but it’s just not in our town, so we rarely travel in that direction. So, I offered to deliver it to her since I was already headed that direction with a borrowed truck the next day. It was a win/win for everyone.
First stop was to deliver the table, next was shopping at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore, where we met Nova. She looked through the crates and picked out a couple, then we headed into the store to do some shopping.
Neither Cathy or I found anything at the ReStore, which is rare. I generally always find something there. Cathy and I were off to more stores, still on the hunt for something special.
Cathy didn’t buy anything, I ended up picking up a couple of these items, can you guess what I got?
I’ll show you tomorrow.
