A run into Goodwill brought me the cute wicker stool/side table for $2.00. I have a wicker mirror that I painted turquoise, so I will paint this the same and take it to the booth. When the clerk rang it up, he said, "Now, that's a good deal!" He meant it nice too. He was happy for me. I like people like that.
The brand new Sock Money Kit was $1.00. What a steal! Those red heeled socks cost about $10.00 usually. I could sell it, but I am going to make it instead. I have been looking for a project that isn't Barn Sale or Booth related. Just something for me to do with my hands while I watch mindless TV. (Anyone else watching "Under The Dome"?) The old clipboard will be painted with chalkboard paint and become a sign at the BS. The giant thumbtacks will go to the booth. Some retro loving college girl will squeal with glee when she finds them.
A different thrift brought me this old school chair for $4.96. It's adorable - all chippy and worn - and solid as can be. I just love old children's chairs in different colors. I have quite a few around here. My favorite is from my Great Grandmother and Great Grand father's one room schoolhouse in Kansas from the 1920's. Between my Mom and me, we have three of them. Maybe that should be my next collection post - little chairs. I honestly bought this chair to sell, but now that it's home, I don't think I can let it go. Not yet anyway. Besides, two out of three cats have already taken a nap on it and have declared it purrfect. (GROAN).
