Today I went out to straighten the booth. I was missing a ton of stuff and I got super excited but then I found it all in the back of the sore being used as props. I don't really mind my things being used, but they need to be displayed in a way that you can see it is FOR SALE and not just a display. There was about $125.00 worth of my things back there out of the way where no one goes. That kind of bummed me out. I might have sold some of that stuff. I put it all back in the booth and will leave it for about another week at 25% off. It was pretty busy today, but I think the Christmas shopping is done. Now people are shopping for themselves.
On the way, I stopped at the Super Cheap Thrift. When I checked out, the lady was super rude to me. They are the nicest people at that thrift - that's half the reason I love to go there. I think I will report her to the lady that is in charge. I think she would like to know that someone was being rude. ANYWAY on to the goods.
Well, not yet - these actually came from a different thrift this week. They are Dr. Peepers glasses - they are HUGE - they cover nearly my whole face, but they are sparkly and pink they only cost 25¢. So, of course, I HAD to have them.
This is a tree topper and it is Rowe Pottery. It is a beautiful cobalt blue. It weighs a ton, I cannot imagine it actually being on top of a tree. I think I will put it in my pottery display. I have a lot of stars in the living room and pottery too, so a pottery star - okay. It cost 25¢.
A nice heavy milkglass ashtray.
A cast iron hanger of curled up cats tails. It-s newer, probably from Hobby Lobby or somewhere similar, but it was 25¢ and we need a hook by the door to hold our hoodies wear to go get the paper and mail every day.
Two gingham lidded jars that I covet, a couple bottle brush wreaths and four bottle brush trees, a little cottage and a vintage Santa in a spaceship ornament. The glittered ribbon was actually a Dollar General find at 25¢ a roll, but GLITTERED ribbon - COME ON! The plan is to make snow globes out of the jars (there is a Christmas tree shaped jar on the bottom shelf you can't see) and bottle brush trees.
I spotted the blue cabinet at a sidewalk sale in town. I thought it was an old grocery store rack, but once I picked it up, I could tell it was an old bathroom medicine cabinet sans the door.
I pretty much paint everything white, but the blue is kind of growing on me.
Also, can I just say that this is a pretty good photo - I think.
That red cart that everything is sitting on is something I found at a garage sale a couple weeks ago. I bought a lot of things at that sale, but they were all for my parents - a handmade Native American drum, beading looms, beading books. beads, Native American pottery and some other Native american things. The cart is bright red and all chippy just like I like things.
I heard that on a commercial today that the week between Christmas and New Years is a
Week of Wonderful.
They meant it for sales and shopping, but I like to think it's the week of wonderful things like enjoying your home, your family, treats and fun. So, I hope you are doing just THAT!
