Thrifting isn't always the most relaxing thing to do, especially if it is your job. It can be very hard work even though I love what I do. I arrived at an estate sale on Friday morning at 6:30 am, shopped for 2 1/2 hours and pretty much exhausted myself for the entire weekend. Have you ever done this? It really set the pace for the next three days. It was worth it though and I'll share about my great book purchase of 2010 with you tomorrow. I kept my non work purchases to a minimum this week. Here's what I found.
A Vintage Christmas wall hanging. Look at the detailed work that went into making this. If you pop over to Goody Girl Red you'll see a muffin tin of supplies that I think was purchased at the same sale. Some of Shara's supplies may have gone into making this.
I was relieved to have found so much book inventory this weekend because I won't be able to properly thrift for the next two weekends. We were set to leave for Southern California on Friday but my mother is getting weaker and weaker from her chemo. We are taking an emergency trip up to Washington to see her. My heart has been a bit heavy this week but I'm glad that we had some money in my business savings to make this journey. I'll be talking more about the importance of a business savings account tomorrow.
Don't forget to pop over to Southern Hospitality to join her thrift party.
Did you thrift this weekend? What did you find?
