thrifting becoming a second nature

That is right.

Today at noon I found myself wanting to take a break. So I walked to two thrift stores nearby. This was mostly because of the great treasures I hunted this past weekend – i can see how easily it can become addictive πŸ™‚

Today I bought a couple of empty frames, a coffee press, two art work, and a blouse.

Both of the artwork are giving me delight and making me very excited and happy! They were the most expensive things I have ever bought from thrift stores (both over 25 bucks together), but I think this money is well spent.

I have lots of photos to post in the empty frames; I cannot wait to hang them on the wall πŸ™‚ Together with the art works, these frames will help me turn my house into a home. With character. And beauty.

And the coffee press was a great deal; I bet it is new and never been used (i could not detect even a light coffee stain on it or on the filter) and it had the best deal: it was only 2 bucks.Β 

And last but not the least; the blouse I have bought is so cute, so lovable that I am in love once again! This is the 5th blouse I have purchased from thrift stores this year and I could not be happier with my choices.

Life is good my friends πŸ™‚

  1. My problem is that I am a deal-aholic…lol. I just can’t seem to bypass them when I see them. Every store I go to, I make a beeline for the clearance aisle if there is one to see what goodies I can find πŸ™‚

    1. I hear you πŸ™‚ who would love to pass a great deal? I often times get great stuff from deals. just sometime I purchased things that I did not need, so I try to be careful with it and remind myself each time that I can buy only what i absolutely need, or loved πŸ™‚ it is tough sometime πŸ™‚


  2. Well done on your thrift store bargains! I always ensure I go by every now and again, it’s a treasure hunt, you never know what youll find!

    1. that is correct! there have been many times I returned empty-handed, but then every once a while something gorgeous turns out to be just there. how lucky are we? i find that the things I collected from thrift stores are usually very rare, unusual pieces. I feel lucky at those times :))))
