Thrift Share Monday. On Monday :)

One more week until my mom leaves for Florida for 6 months=one more thrift outing with her this week, then I'm on my own til' Thanksgiving :( We went out last week and I really didn't feel like buying anything, so we went to the local Habitat Store that has a small 'garage sale' area. A lil' messy and not much there, but I always seem to luck into something...for resell on Ebay: Tommy Bahama men's silk shorts, hot pink Betsey Johnson lacy dress, and two 1950 Military Retirement Books I thought might sell, who knows. Broke my one book restriction but I rationalized it to my 'helper' by saying I'd sell them together, so it really only counts as one, ha.

A great hand painted wooden Santa incense burner, made in Germany, thrifted from Goodwill. I've never seen one of these before my purchase and didn't know what it was - I thought his pipe was missing from his mouth and had no clue why his body lifted off - my dad let me in on what it was so I didn't have to do any research :) Incense cone goes inside body in metal holder and smoke comes out Santa's mouth. Love it but am willing to part with it due to my already huge collection of Christmas goodies.

I'm going on a road trip to Austin one day this week to check out the Goodwill Outlet, since my lame city hasn't one. Shame, shame. Lame, lame. But on the bright side, I LOVE AUSTIN, so it's ok. Might even go check out Edie Brickell in May so I can take another road trip to Austin. And I will be taking a June road trip to Austin to see Adele :) And maybe I'll find the Goodwill appealing, so I'll have to take a monthly trip to the Goodwill in Austin. Yeah, that's a good one...

As always, this post is a link up with Apron Thrift Girl :)
