On Tuesday mornings, I drop Daniel at school and head over to the thrift store for a quick fix and then take the boys to story time. Today when I got to the thrift store, I realized that I didn't have my wallet. There's nothing like getting to the thrift store, hopes high for deals and treasures, just to have them crushed knowing that you can't get your wallet and get to the library in time. Then, to make matters worse, it was the really awful story lady. Salt in an open wound.
I never shared my super deals from last week, so since I didn't get any today, I guess I'll share them now.
I got this very cute little Tiffany-style lamp for just a few bucks and these chintz English tin containers for 45 cents a piece. I love them.
I'm spending the rest of the evening sorting my buttons. I have to choose 12 for my swap and am having a hard time. I'm very attached, I realize. Going through them is giving me knew ideas for things to do with them though and very relaxing too. And though it doesn't make up for a missed thrifting opportunity, it's very comforting.
