Thrift Share Monday (on a Wednesday)

I've wanted to share my thrift finds via a Thrift Share Monday blog post for a while now but just haven't completed a post...here goes AGAIN...even though it's Wednesday...

I also have wanted to find out how to highlight/link to another website in my blog posts for a while now and I finally Googled that and will try it in this soon-to-be-completed first thrift share post.

I first saw a 'thrift share' type post a couple of months ago on a blog I really, really am fond of - Apron Thrift Girl. (Yay! It worked!) So many things in common with this blogger/thrifter/reseller. Almost everytime I've stopped by her site so far, we have duplicate finds from the week of thrifting. Her childhood room also looked like mine. I thought that was weird. I need to go back and read the post with the childhood bedroom picture...

Here's a few pictures of some great items I found this week whilst thrifting:

heavy wooden rocking chair skeleton to be webbed with vintage western belts

creepy lil' pipecleaner christmas elves

adorable framed ink line drawing by "Maretta, age 7"

faux bois western belt buckle

As usual, keepers outweigh resellers. Keepers: 4, Resellers: 1 (the longhorn ice bucket). Hard for me to part with my thrifted items because I usually only purchase goodies I like. Must get better at this part. Buy more? Bigger house? More storage? MORE SELLING. Have to keep this in mind as I'm on 'thrifting restriction' until I list (or sell) 10 more items. MORE SELLING. ciao for now.
