I recently made hauls from 4 thrift stores…Yay! I’m thrilled to report to all my followers that I’m doing better! The bones are healing; I’ve graduated from wheelchair to cane, and I’ve felt like getting out this week. Still trying to build up stamina and strength, but I had enough to visit 4 thrift stores on Friday. So I wasn’t directly affected by all those cyber-attacks.
The closest thrift stores had nothing to speak of, so everything I got was from further afield in a little town called Pell City, about 50 miles away. They have a couple of thrift stores and some interesting looking antique shops I’ll check out next time. Not a huge haul, but I was glad to find something. It was a beautiful Fall drive anyway.
I think these Wooden Perpetual calendars are pretty cool & should sell in my Etsy shop. This also has a pencil holder.
A couple of swatches of fabric, which usually do well for me.
Pretty little wooden sleigh by Enesco, dating from the 80’s
Here’s another odd find I could use some help with. I wouldn’t have given it a second look, but hubby thought I should get it.
It is a cast iron 1/2 lb weight, and marked “L” on the back, which I assume means “left.” Am I right? I’m assuming this is a counterweight, but how would it be used? Does anyone know?
Lastly, I’ve been on the hunt for a small jewelry chest I could makeover, and I finally found one! I can’t wait to get started.
Marie from The Interior Frugalista is the queen of these makeovers. She is my inspiration! Here is one of her boxes. http://www.interiorfrugalista.com/2016/04/mint-jewelry-box-makeover.html
Hopefully the next time I make hauls from 4 thrift stores, I’ll find more treasure.
