I was so in the mood for some good thrift store shopping yesterday. It’s been awhile since we’ve gone to our local thrifting haunt. But, I guess everyone and their sister and their children and their children’s classmates, had the same idea. The place was horribly picked over, most likely owing to the "50% off red,white and blue tags" President’s Day sale. Since my children aren’t school-age yet, I often forget these little holidays and the fact that the stores and restaurants will be swamped with shoppers.
What I REALLY have my heart set on finding are some wooden bowls. I feel like that’s a simple enough request–nothing fancy, but wood, please. I zeroed in on some from across the store yesterday, thinking I had scored, but when I picked them up, I quickly realized my "wooden" bowls were actually plastic look-alikes.
I did manage to find this cute piece of fabric. It’s a nice heavy cotton, and the background is a really rich chocolate brown–this photo seems a little faded. But once I got it home, I decided it was more than I needed. The piece is table-cloth sized. I don’t know the exact measurements–but there’s probably a couple yards there. I’m going to keep half for myself and the other half is up for grabs.
You know the drill: leave a comment that let’s me know you’re interested in it. And I’ll draw a name in the next day or two. (and sorry, but I have to keep it in the US, not much room in my budget for overseas shipping….sorry.)
