Thrift Share Monday (on a Wednesday)

Next week I predict I will post on the proper day haha.

I've discovered 2 new thrift stores recently whilst on outings with my mom, who now lives 10 minutes away from me for 6 months out of the year - yay!!! Such a good lil' thrifter she is. Never gets mad at me for taking so long (like some other people I know), tries her hardest to find things for me to resell, and will never let me pay for lunch dangit! I finally convinced her to let me pay for our next Roasted Poblano Burger and Sweet Potato French Fries at EZ's. Deee-lish. I don't eat too many burgers but when I do, I usually head to EZ's.

So far I only thrift at stores. No garage sales or estate sales yet. I already have too much and I like to thrift during the week versus the weekends. I go to several different Goodwill stores; Thrift Town; a giant store I always forget the name!? of and The Humane Society Thrift Store (smart idea!). The 2 new stores had a great selection of books, which I have a weakness for, and really good pricing. Yay! Some day I will go to estate sales because I like the idea of seeing where the item 'lived' and a glimpse of that owner's life. Also seems sweet because of collections you come across. And jewelry. And artwork. And antiques. And kitchenware. And just about everything I collect and/or like. Gotta lose some inventory before I go there.

Here's a few treasures I found whilst thrifting with my mom (in addition all the books I bought - about 15 children's and 15 adult).

cutest lil' Christmas pixie Elves (ornaments)
wanted to keep but forced myself to post on eBay

sweet vintage WEE WALKERS infant SADDLE SHOES crib shoes, listed on eBay

just plain cute set of MINI MONK FIGURINES to be listed today

vintage WESTCLOX electric alarm CLOCK & retro BIG BEN alarm CLOCK to be listed soon

Thanks again to Selena at Apron Thrift Girl for the inspiration to participate in Thrift Share Monday (even though I still don't post til Wednesday!) This is getting fun...and I love the fact I learned how to link to other websites in my blog. Small accomplishment but big for me. Have fun thrifting!!
