Thrifty Thursday #21

     This was a mighty slow week around here for second hand shopping! My hubby and I were out and about on Saturday morning for 1 1/2 hours going to yard sales that were advertised in the newspaper. I'll be honest- if we pull up to a sale and see that it's mainly clothes, we keep driving. The sales with tables full of knick-knacks are the ones that lure me.
     We made only one purchase the whole morning and it was at our last stop.

I got all these old suitcases for $10! They are in great shape and the insides are beautiful! I have seen lots of photos of people incorporating these in home decor. Look at the cover of this magazine with old suitcases.

I am running out of room for anything extra in my living room, but I am determined to make space for this stack- my hubby doesn't use his recliner that often. . . Just kidding!

In one of these, I found this tote bag- I don't think it was ever used! It will be the perfect road trip bag:)

     Thanks for stopping by and God bless.
