Stop #1: The thrift that had a pile of trees still in their boxes last week before I decided I wanted a new tree. CLOSED
Stop #2: Newer thrift in town that recently expanded to twice it's size. Found a slim 6.5 foot tree, bu it was $25.00. That seemed a bit pricey to me for a used tree, so I passed. At Stop #2, I was so excited when I walked into an entire room chock full of Christmas items. Not just a table full or a shelf full - but a room full! I took my time and looked at every single thing. But, nothing appealed to me. BooHoo.
Stop #3: Salvation Army. No trees that fit the dimensions on my wishlist. But, I found a 7 foot tree for....$75.00. Holy cow!
No tree for me today. (Said Soup Nazi style). But, as usual, I found a few good things.
A vintage seed bag from a Watermelon Seed Farm for $4.00. It's really big - probably a 100 lb. sack. Not sure what I will do with it, but bringing it home was a no brainer.
Three vintage poinsettias with Mercury Glass beads in the center. I found all three at the Salvation Army for a total of 80¢. To find anything vintage at the SA is a miracle in itself, but to have only paid 80¢? Now, that truly is a miracle!
This fabulous piece of vintage pottery was $2.25. It's just the kind I collect and in my new favorite color - pink!
Tomorrow I'm off to a few more thrifts in search of a tree and maybe a few more treasures. Then it's back home because our first bout of sleet and snow is coming. Ick. At least I will get my decorating mo-jo and get this place decorated!
