I scored big time on my thrift store run this week! As a side note, my mom had just given me a container full of coins, so instead of stopping by the bank for cash, I paid for my $9 purchase in quarters, dimes, and nickels. My hubbie would have been embarrased to be standing next to me as I dug through my jar of coins. For some reason, he thinks that is tacky! But money is money, people! :)
Anyway, every so often, my favorite thrift store places books on sale for ten cents! I scour the shelves looking for old books. Even though, I may not know quite what I'm going to do with them, I just can't pass them up at that price.
The middle photo shows several of my treasures- old records for a quarter each. I used to have quite a collection of these and my own record player when I was a little girl!
Got 3 sets of chopsticks for only a buck. They are absolutely beautiful! They're black with red and white flowers painted on them. They're so pretty that I plan to wear a pair in my hair once it gets long enough!
Also got this worn cigar box for fifty cents. I think I'm going to use it to store some of my craft supplies. How cute would a stack of these look sitting on my desk?!
The final photo is of an old deck of cards. I always take time to sift through the games whether I'm at a thrift store or yard sale. I love the vintage images on these cards. I plan to incorporate a few as embellishments on the next mini album I make.
Thanks so much for stopping by and participating in my treasure hunting!
